What Are Veneers?
Veneers are ultra-thin yet durable shells that are crafted from dental porcelain. You can think of a veneer as a little “mask” for your tooth, fitting over its entire front-facing surface to conceal several issues, such as chips, cracks, stains, and minor gaps, in one fell swoop. Not only is dental porcelain strong enough to withstand the daily forces of biting and chewing, but it also isn’t nearly as porous as tooth enamel. This means you won’t have to worry about your veneers discoloring over time from consuming tannin-rich products like coffee and tea.
The Process of Getting Veneers
The veneers procedure is simple and painless. First, you’ll attend a consultation with one of our dentists to discuss your smile goals and determine whether you’re a good candidate for veneers.
If we decide to move forward with veneers, we can begin the process by preparing the teeth that will receive the restorations. To accomplish this, we will shave off a layer of enamel that’s about as thin as a contact lens. Doing this ensures there is ample room for the veneers to lay flush against your teeth. Next, we’ll take impressions of your mouth to send to our partnered dental lab, where your veneers will be crafted to our exact specifications. We can place temporary veneers over your teeth in the meantime.
Once your veneers arrive at our office in a few weeks, we’ll call you to set up an appointment. After confirming that the restorations meet our standards, we’ll replace your temporaries with your permanent veneers, instantly giving you a completely new smile.
Benefits of Veneers
Because they come with a plethora of advantages, veneers are highly recommended by dental professionals and patients alike. Some of their unique benefits include:
- A versatile treatment that can repair virtually all cosmetic flaws on a tooth
- Being well-tolerated by gum tissue
- Incredible resistance to stains
- Customizable treatment that allows them to blend in with the rest of your smile
- Ability to last up to 20 years with the right maintenance

As with most things you purchase, you really get what you pay for when it comes to veneers. Higher quality materials often mean an increase in price, but it also gives your new and improved smile a longer lifespan. The price of veneers is often higher than other options, but their many benefits make them well worth the cost. It’s also important to choose the right cosmetic dentist for veneers, so you can ensure that you’re getting the results you desire. Read on to learn more about the cost of veneers in Bedford.
Cost VS Cosmetic Dentistry: What’s Right for Me?
There are a variety of cosmetic services that range in price. Each of these treatments accomplish different things for your smile’s appearance. These options include:
- Braces: Braces align teeth to help you achieve the straight smile you want. However, this treatment often comes with a higher price tag of around $5,000 to $6,000. While braces are a major investment, they don’t help with the color or shape of your teeth.
- Teeth Whitening: This solution is popular because it’s convenient and affordable, however it doesn’t help with the shape or position of your teeth. Plus, the results will wear off starting as soon as 3 months from your treatment.
- Direct Bonding: Bonding is quick and easy – the treatment can be completed in a single visit by your cosmetic dentist in Bedford. That said, it can only be used for minor issues like small chips or cracks, and it will have to be redone every few years.
- Veneers: While veneers aren’t the cheapest cosmetic service, they are the easiest way to enjoy a complete smile transformation. Whether you have crooked, chipped, gapped, discolored, or misshapen teeth, veneers will give you the results you’ve always wanted in just two appointments. As an added benefit, porcelain veneers are relatively stain-proof, which makes it much more difficult to discolor your smile in the future.

How Long Do Veneers Last?

However, patients who prioritize the care of their veneers often enjoy their new and improved smile for much longer! Therefore, it is of the utmost importance that you practice good oral habits by brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting our dentist bi-yearly for exams and cleanings.
Will the Veneers Match My Other Teeth?

What Happens If One of My Veneers Comes Off?

Instead, locate the veneer and contact our office for an appointment. No matter what, do not use household items, like crazy glue, to adhere the veneer back to your tooth!
