What Are Veneers?

Veneers are thin, custom-made sheaths of dental porcelain. By bonding the material to the front-facing surface of your teeth, they can mask a number of imperfections, including:

  • Stubborn stains and permanent discoloration
  • Cracks or chips
  • Misshaped teeth
  • Disproportionally small teeth
  • Minor gaps between teeth
  • Slightly crooked or misaligned teeth

Who Is a Candidate for Veneers?

If you have trouble smiling confidently because of one or more imperfections in your teeth, then you may be a candidate for veneers! However, the best way to find out for certain is to schedule an appointment with our cosmetic dentist in Tyler, Dr. Markle. If he detects an untreated condition, like gum disease, during your dental exam, then he can administer the appropriate treatment beforehand to ensure your oral health can support veneers in the short and long-term.

The Veneers Treatment Process

Your journey to a new and improved smile begins with an initial consultation with Dr. Markle. Once he has discussed the improvements you want to make and confirmed that veneers are the best option, we will schedule your tooth preparation appointment. During this visit, he will remove a small portion of your enamel, which will ensure the end result isn’t obtrusive or bulky. From there, we will take impressions so our dental lab’s artisans can meticulously craft your permanent set to perfection.

The Benefits of Veneers

For decades, celebrities and the public alike have traded cracked, discolored, imperfect teeth for bright, straight, flawless ones thanks to the versatility of veneers. All these years later, they continue to be a leading cosmetic dentistry treatment because they:

  • Last 10+ years with proper care
  • Provide natural-looking results
  • Correct a number of flaws in a single treatment
  • Are stain-resistant and cavity-resilient
  • Require less enamel removal than dental crowns

Understanding the Cost of Veneers

If you’re considering veneers, you’ve probably done a little research on their price. As with most things, you get what you pay for when it comes to veneers. If you’re wanting a full smile makeover that will erase years of imperfections, this treatment is definitely worth investing in. That said, it’s also incredibly important that you choose the right cosmetic service to meet your needs. Read on to learn more about the cost of veneers in Tyler compared to other treatment options.

Cost VS Cosmetic Dentistry: What’s Right for Me?

We offer a variety of cosmetic services that each do something different for your appearance. These options include:

  • Teeth whitening: For stains and discoloration, teeth whitening can brighten your smile to erase years of yellowing. It’s affordable, and we can provide professional teeth whitening in just one visit. However, it doesn’t correct the size, shape, or position of your teeth.
  • Braces: Orthodontics straighten teeth for dramatic results, but the treatment is often expensive. Usually, braces will cost between $5,000 and $6,000 to get straight teeth, but they will only correct alignment without addressing the size, shape, or shade of your smile. Plus, braces often cause slight discoloration once they are taken off.
  • Direct bonding: Bonding is the most affordable and convenient cosmetic treatment, utilizing tooth-colored resin to correct small chips, cracks, or gaps in the smile. That said, bonding can’t be used for more extensive improvements, plus it must be redone every 2 to 3 years to maintain your appearance.
  • Veneers: While they’re not the most affordable option, veneers are the only solution that can provide you with a complete smile transformation, correcting numerous flaws all at once. The best part is that this life-changing treatment can be done in as little as two appointments. As an added bonus, dental porcelain used for veneers is relatively stain-proof, making it more difficult to discolor your new smile in the future.

Veneers FAQs

Question mark cut out on paper

Veneers in Tyler can give you the flawless smile you desire, but they are a big commitment. You likely have a few concerns about the road ahead. Rest assured; Dr. Markle will explain the entire process during your initial consultation . Here are the answers to a few frequently asked questions to calm your nerves while waiting for your appointment.

Are veneers permanent?

Veneers aren’t considered permanent because they will need to be replaced, eventually; however, they aren’t reversible, either. Your cosmetic dentist in Tyler will need to remove a small amount of enamel to ensure they sit flush. Although etching doesn’t harm your teeth, your enamel can’t regenerate. Your teeth will always need to be covered by restorations, whether veneers or crowns.

What happens to the teeth under veneers?

Removing enamel doesn’t damage your teeth or compromise your health. Both the bonding material and veneers are completely safe. You won’t have an increased risk of decay since the front surfaces of your teeth will be covered; however, your underlying teeth aren’t immune to cavities. You’ll need to commit to your oral hygiene at home using a soft-bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste. Brush your teeth at least twice daily and floss every night. Limit how often you have sugars and starches to keep cavity-causing bacteria at bay. Don’t forget to visit your dentist twice a year for a cleaning and checkup.

How many veneers will I need?

A veneer can be bonded to a single tooth to fix a chip or crack, but the overall goal of the procedure is to improve the entire smile. Your dentist will likely recommend more than one. They are often applied to the teeth most visible when smiling to create natural-looking results. There isn’t any way to determine how many you’ll need without first examining your mouth and learning more about your goals. Some patients require as few as 6 to 8 while others may need 10 or more.

Do veneers feel natural?

You can expect there to be a slight adjustment period; however, many people report veneers to feel natural. Your veneers are custom-crafted to fit your teeth like a glove. Removing a small amount of enamel ensures there aren’t any ledges that might protrude in any way. Your teeth will feel smooth and sleek. After a few days, you won’t even notice your veneers aren’t part of your real teeth.

Does dental insurance cover veneers?

Veneers are considered an elective procedure, so it’s rare for dental insurance to cover them; however, there are some exceptions. If they are necessary to your dental health, you may be able to use your coverage to offset the cost, such as for replacements. If applicable, we’ll work on your behalf with your dental insurance to file any necessary claim forms. In some cases, you can use your coverage to lower the cost of any preparatory procedures, imaging, or impressions. We offer several payment methods for any out-of-pocket balance, like third-party financing.
