Porcelain Veneers – Rochester, NY

Transform Your Smile

If you notice multiple flaws in your teeth, it can be discouraging and overwhelming. Where do you start? How long and how many different procedures could it take to get the results you’re looking for? Well, at Vollo Dental Group, we offer a solution that could help you with all of them at once—porcelain veneers. Opting for these small shells can revitalize your smile and your confidence to let it show.

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin sheets of ceramic material that are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth to change their shape, color, size, and positioning. As a result, they are used to correct or cover the following cosmetic flaws:

  • Gaps between teeth.
  • Discolored teeth that don’t respond to professional whitening.
  • Chipped or cracked teeth.
  • Small teeth.
  • Misshapen teeth.
  • Worn-down teeth.
  • Slightly misaligned teeth.

What are the benefits of porcelain veneers?

Because of the material, porcelain veneers have many advantages, including the following:

  • They look completely natural. They reflect light like tooth enamel, so no one will be able to tell.
  • They are comfortable. The porcelain material won’t irritate your gums and should fit perfectly in your mouth.
  • They are extremely durable. Porcelain veneers can certainly withstand the normal wear and tear you subject them to.
  • They are stain resistant. In fact, porcelain veneers resist stains better than tooth enamel.
  • They are very versatile. They can conceal several different kinds of flaws simultaneously.

What is the process for getting porcelain veneers?

After you and one of our talented dentists determine that porcelain veneers are the right choice for you, the process for placing porcelain veneers goes as follows:

  1. Your dentist may administer a local anesthetic.
  2. They will remove a small portion of tooth enamel to make space for the veneers.
  3. Then we take an impression of your teeth and send this information to a dental lab, where your custom veneers will be crafted.
  4. Before you leave, we will place temporary veneers so that you can start to become accustomed to the feel of veneers.
  5. When the final products are ready, you will return to our office so that your dentist can bond the veneers to your teeth, instantly transforming their look.

In as few as two appointments, you could have the smile you’ve always wanted!

Am I a good candidate for porcelain veneers?

Not everyone should get porcelain veneers. For instance, if you have poor oral health, you may not be a good candidate. If, however, your teeth and gums are healthy, and especially if you have several imperfections that you want to address at the same time, porcelain veneers could be the solution for you! But the best way to know whether porcelain veneers could work for you is to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced dentists.

At Vollo Dental Group, we are committed to helping you reach your smile goals through the most effective and efficient treatments. In many cases, porcelain veneers give patients the results they need quickly and enhance their confidence in their smiles.

Cost vs. Cosmetic Dentistry: What’s Right for Me?

When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, it’s essential to survey all your choices, especially if you’re not familiar with them. Each service comes at a different price point and can help you accomplish different things for your smile. Let’s take a look at some of the most common options:

  • Direct Bonding – If you have minor flaws and imperfections in your teeth, this may be the ideal solution for you. It’s a fast, easy, and affordable way to correct a flawed tooth. In just one appointment, our dentists will apply a composite resin to the affected tooth and sculpt it to perfection, hiding any problem from view.
  • Teeth Whitening – Do you want to change the color of your smile? Professional whitening treatment can brighten your pearly whites in record time! After just one appointment, you’ll have teeth that are several shades whiter. Even though this treatment is much cheaper than others, it cannot alter the shape or position of your teeth. If those are changes you’d like to make, then you may want to consider other options.
  • Veneers – This treatment option may be more expensive and invasive than others, but it’s the only one capable of fixing multiple imperfections at once. What’s more, you can expect your flawless new smile to last well over a decade with proper care and maintenance!

How to Make Veneers Affordable

Since veneers are a form of cosmetic dentistry, they won’t be covered by your dental insurance. Generally, your policy will only offer coverage for services that are considered medically necessary. That means you’ll be expected to find an alternative way to pay for your treatment. Luckily, we can help you out with that. At Vollo Dental Group, we offer CareCredit financing to make veneers an affordable option for you. It allows you to split up your overall cost into smaller, budget-friendly monthly installments. And the best part? There is little-to-no interest attached! With this plan, we can make even the most expensive dental work fit your budget perfectly.

Are you ready to start your smile transformation journey? Call us and schedule a consultation with our team today. We’ll help you determine which cosmetic service is right for your needs and create a treatment plan that’ll keep your total expenses as low as possible!

Veneers FAQs

If you’re looking for a more dramatic smile makeover, dental veneers could be the perfect solution for you. However, they are quite an investment, so it pays to be well informed about the procedure. Here are the answers to some of the most common questions we are asked about veneers in Rochester. If you don’t see the information that you’re looking for below, don’t worry. Give us a call and we’d be happy to answer your questions and get you started with an initial consultation.

Are Veneers Permanent?

Veneers aren’t technically permanent because they will eventually need to be replaced. However, they are considered to be irreversible. To ensure that the veneers fit properly on the teeth, a small amount of protective enamel needs to be removed. Since removed enamel does not grow back, teeth that are prepared in this way will always need to be covered with either veneers or crowns.

Will I Still Be Able to Drink Coffee with Veneers?

Dental veneers that are made from porcelain are stain-resistant. Porcelain is a nonporous material, so the particles in dark-colored foods and beverages have a harder time slipping beneath the surface. Ultimately, you should be able to drink your morning cup of coffee without worrying too much about staining your veneers. Just keep in mind that veneers are not stain-proof, so excessive consumption of coffee and other dark-colored beverages can still have a negative impact over time. Moderation is key!

Do Veneers Give You a Lisp?

Some people have trouble pronouncing certain words when they first get veneers, resulting in a temporary lisp. This is partially due to muscle memory, as the tongue is not used to accounting for the presence of veneers when you talk. The tongue will eventually adjust on its own, although practicing the pronunciation of difficult sounds can help to speed this adjustment process along.

How Many Veneers Will I Need?

The goal of dental veneers is for all of your visible teeth to match, so you will receive an appropriate number of veneers to accomplish this goal. Some people get a single veneer to cover one pesky tooth while others get anywhere from 6 to 12 for a more dramatic smile makeover. During your initial consultation, we will discuss the goals you have for your smile to determine what the right number of veneers is for your unique case.
