Veneers Idaho Falls

Veneers Can Improve the Appearance of Your Smile

Dentist discussing veneers in Idaho Falls with a patient

How important is an attractive smile to you? If you’re anything like the participants in a recent study, you might give up vacations or dessert for a year just to have a nice smile. This same study also reported that a staggering 40% of Americans wouldn’t go on a second date with someone who had crooked teeth. A crooked smile can even jeopardize your chances of getting your dream job!

While these statistics are alarming, the good news is that a dentist who is exceptional at cosmetic dentistry can help perfect your smile quickly and painlessly.

One of the best ways to get the smile you’ve always dreamed of is with dental veneers in Idaho Falls (also referred to as porcelain veneers, or dental porcelain laminates). They have a realistic appearance and are a popular way to achieve a perfect smile.

How Dental Veneers Work

Dental veneers are custom made to fit over your natural teeth. They’re like thin shells that cover each tooth individually. The veneers are made out of either a composite resin or porcelain that is crafted to look identical to natural tooth enamel.

The veneers are permanently bonded to your existing teeth, and your dentist will expertly trim, place and color the veneer for a smile that is sure to impress. Dental veneers adhere to the tooth with special cement, and the dentist uses a light beam that activates the cement so it hardens and sets in place.

Getting veneers does not hurt, as the patient is numb during the veneering process. When the numbing wears off, there is typically no, or very little, discomfort. There may be mild soreness in the gum or jaw if more than eight veneers are placed in a single procedure.

Who Makes a Good Candidate for Veneers?

Anyone with a smile they’re not happy with would be an ideal candidate for veneers. Particularly, those with discolored, misshapen, or chipped teeth would benefit greatly.

Veneers are also a good idea for someone who has a small imperfection they’d like to fix because veneers can also be used to fix a single tooth or an entire mouthful of teeth. They’re also highly desirable among those who want to permanently whiten their smiles.

Porcelain veneers are also an excellent choice for people who want straight teeth but don’t want to wear braces or aren’t eligible for ClearCorrect or a similar process.

Benefits of Veneers

One of the most important benefits of veneers is that they look so natural that it’s almost impossible to tell the difference between a veneer and someone’s actual teeth. They’re also stain-resistant, which is a major benefit for those who drink coffee, tea or smoke cigarettes.

Veneers are widely considered the best way to fix minor tooth imperfections quickly and painlessly.

Another reason people opt for veneers is that they are a way to whiten teeth for people whose teeth resist traditional whitening procedures.

Understanding the Cost of Veneers

The cost of veneers can vary depending on the number you get. Our team will give you an estimate after examining your mouth and determining how many teeth need to be improved. When considering how much you’ll pay for veneers, remember that cost and quality often go hand in hand. We’re happy to help you explore your other cosmetic options as well as the costs involved; our goal is to help you achieve a smile that you’re happy with at an affordable price.

Cost VS Cosmetic Dentistry: What's Right For Me?

When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, there’s rarely just one treatment to consider. Our practice has a variety of cosmetic services to choose from, and the one that’s right for you can depend on any number of factors. The list below can help you compare the cost of veneers and various other treatments that can be used to enhance your smile:

  • Invisalign: Thanks to Invisalign, you can straighten your smile without any braces. Compared to other treatments, Invisalign is a major investment in terms of cost. And while it is effective in making certain corrections, it can’t make any changes to the shape and color of your teeth.
  • Teeth Whitening: Teeth whitening is a relatively quick cosmetic procedure and is highly effective for removing unsightly stains. It’s less expensive than other cosmetic treatments, but it’s also much more limited; it can only be used to improve the color of the tooth and doesn’t have any impact on other aspects of its appearance.
  • Composite Bonding: A small amount of composite resin can be applied to your teeth to hide minor chips and other imperfections. It’s one of the cheapest options and is very versatile when it comes to making minor changes. However, compared to veneers, the results won’t last as long, so you’ll have to pay to get them redone more often.
  • Veneers: Veneers may be more costly than other procedures like whitening and bonding, but that’s balanced out by the many advantages it offers. For one thing, it can be used to make multiple corrections all at once and lets you transform your entire grin in just two appointments. For another, the results can last a long time – at least 10 years or more – if you take good care of your smile.

How to Make Veneers Affordable

Veneers usually won’t be covered by dental insurance since they’re a cosmetic treatment. That said, you can still make paying for veneers easier via CareCredit financing. CareCredit lets you divide the cost of a given treatment into smaller payments that can be made every month. You’ll be able to pay at a rate that’s comfortable for you with little to no interest to worry about. Our team can give you more details about how CareCredit works and help you with the application process if necessary.

Veneers FAQs

How long can veneers last?

When placed by a trained cosmetic dentist like Dr. Cline, a veneer can be trusted to maintain its appearance and strength for about 10-15 years on average. The biggest thing that can affect this is how well the patient takes care of their teeth and veneers over time. Simple things like brushing and flossing every day as well as attending regular checkups with us can drastically increase the lifespan of veneers and prevent many small issues from turning into bigger ones that call for a replacement.

Will I have to change my diet with veneers?

In most cases, a patient does NOT need to change their diet after getting veneers. The porcelain used is extremely strong, on par with natural enamel, meaning you should be able to bite into anything with confidence. That being said, it’s generally good advice to be careful when eating especially hard or sticky foods, as these can potentially damage veneers and teeth alike. It’s also recommended to reduce your consumption of richly pigmented foods and drinks (think coffee, wine, soda, colorful sauces) because they can create staining over time.

How many veneers will I need?

Many patients are pleasantly surprised to learn that they don’t need to get veneers on all of their teeth to achieve the look they desire. Usually, a patient may need between one and eight veneers based on the current condition of their teeth as well as their goals. You’ll have a chance to talk with Dr. Cline about this, and he’ll suggest the number of veneers he thinks is best considering your budget and what you hope to achieve. In many cases, it only takes a few to create a significant change in someone’s appearance! 

Can dental insurance be used to help pay for veneers?

Most dental insurance plans categorize veneers as an elective procedure, as in it’s not necessary for someone’s oral health. That means the majority of plans don’t offer any coverage. However, it may be possible to use your benefits if veneers are used to repair a damaged or chipped tooth, but this will only apply in certain cases.

At your initial consultation with Dr. Cline, you’ll have a chance to talk about the financial aspects of your treatment with our team. Many patients opt for CareCredit financing, which allows them to pay for veneers in smaller installments (with little to no interest) using a plan of their choosing.
