Porcelain Veneers

At Spring Lake Dental Care, we offer an exciting alternative for patients who may not need full porcelain crowns to enhance the form and function of their teeth: porcelain veneers. These popular treatment options can beautifully enhance the appearance of your teeth by masking stains, hiding chips, correcting misalignment, and ultimately reshaping your smile.

Please read on to learn more about porcelain veneers and how they can give you the smile of your dreams. If you have questions, or if you would like to schedule an appointment with one of our experienced cosmetic dentists, please contact us today.

What are Porcelain Dental Veneers?

Made of strong ceramic material, porcelain dental veneers are thin shells that slide over the front and sides of the teeth to conceal their natural appearance. Unlike dental crowns, which often necessitate the removal of large amounts of original tooth structure before they can be applied, porcelain veneers typically only require that the front of the tooth be buffed slightly to accommodate the thickness of the veneer. After your custom veneers are created, they are firmly bonded to your teeth, creating your brilliant new smile.

With proper care, dental veneers can produce outcomes that last for many years, sometimes even decades. Our porcelain veneers are crafted at DaVinci Dental Labs, a full-service laboratory that has delivered high-end aesthetic restorations with state-of-the-art technologies and techniques for over 45 years. Made from the finest, most durable ceramic materials available, you can trust your veneers are handcrafted with the utmost care to meet your cosmetic goals.

Minimal-Prep Porcelain Veneers

Dr. Ciampi and the dentists at Spring Lake Dental Care are able to provide porcelain veneers with little removal of the original tooth enamel for many patients. Minimal-prep porcelain veneers allow our dental team to utilize very conservative techniques and preserve as much of the natural tooth as possible. This can ultimately make your visit with us more convenient, not to mention more comfortable.

As with all of our porcelain veneer procedures, minimal-prep veneers will be customized for the most precise and natural fit possible. They will also be color-matched to surrounding teeth for a seamless blend. During your initial consultation, our dentist will examine your teeth and determine if this conservative treatment will be best for your needs.

With good oral hygiene and the proper care, porcelain dental veneers can last for decades!

Very skilled Doctors and staff. Up to date modern equipment. I have been their patient for 20 years and I always will be.

How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last?

High-quality dental veneers made with strong, durable ceramic materials are designed to last for many years – often beyond a decade. To help extend the lifetime, there are measures the patient can take to properly care for and maintain the dental restoration for years to come. Practicing good oral hygiene with daily brushing and flossing, along with routine dental cleanings and examinations, are ideal ways to prolong your results. Additionally, if you tend to grind or clench your teeth while you sleep, wearing a nightguard or mouthguard can be an excellent way to protect the veneers from potential damage.

How Much Do Porcelain Veneers Cost?

The cost of porcelain veneers at Spring Lake Dental Care may vary depending on several factors that need to be considered when planning your smile enhancement. Keep in mind, the price reflects our commitment to providing patients with the highest-quality materials crafted by master ceramists who are experts in this field, as well as veneer placement by experienced cosmetic dentists who can create natural-looking results. During your initial consultation, we will evaluate the best course of treatment for your aesthetic goals and provide a cost estimate that provides the best value for the finest treatment. The estimate for porcelain dental veneers will be based on a variety of factors, including:

  • The number of veneers being placed 
  • The type of porcelain material that will be utilized 
  • The technique chosen to fabricate the veneers
  • The timeline of the procedure
  • The complexity of the case
  • The degree of tooth preparation required 

Our knowledgeable team can review your cost estimate with you after the treatment plan has been developed and explore payment options that may be best for your needs. We can also talk with you about third-party financing available through CareCredit®. This reputable company offers qualified applicants a variety of affordable loan options and payment plans for dental procedures.

Additional Frequently Asked Questions About Porcelain Veneers

Does insurance cover porcelain veneers?

In most cases, porcelain veneers are selected to cosmetically enhance or improve a single tooth, multiple teeth, or an entire smile. Due to the aesthetic nature of the treatment, most dental insurance providers will not cover costs for the procedure. With that in mind, our practice accepts numerous payment methods, including financing via CareCredit® for qualified applicants, to make this part of the treatment process as convenient as possible. 

Do porcelain veneers stain?

The non-porous ceramic material used for porcelain veneers is highly resistant to stains and can typically withstand most food and beverages that would normally cause discoloration. However, keep in mind that the surrounding natural teeth are still susceptible to staining, so darker-pigmented solids and liquids (coffee, tea, red wine, marinara, berries, etc.) should be enjoyed in moderation to preserve the appearance of your overall smile. Additionally, to avoid staining—as well as compromising your oral and overall health—it is best to refrain from using tobacco products.
