There is a lot of misleading or downright incorrect information about Veneers out there. A consultation with our San Francisco Porcelain Veneers team is the best way to learn about the procedure. In the meantime, let’s put some of these misconceptions to rest.
The science behind Dental Veneers has advanced significantly. Our San Francisco Dental Veneers team will work with you to match the color, shape, and size you want. Our goal is to give you the most natural looking smile our skilled dentists can provide.
If you treat your veneers well, they will maintain their natural appeal for years. While occasional incidents may require a return visit to Pacific Heights Dental, with the proper care, you can expect your veneers to last ten years or more.
The process that goes into crafting your perfect smile can be somewhat labor intensive, and thus your veneers are priced accordingly. But when you spread out that cost over the decade or more that you will get out of your veneers, it may seem like a small price to pay for the smile you’ve always wanted. We’d like to invite you to our Pacific Heights Dental Office to discuss a plan that is perfect for you.
On your first visit to our office, you and your dentist will discuss your expectations. Since everyone has a different smile goal, this consultation will help our team design your veneers. The doctor will take an impression of your teeth so work can begin on your new look.
On your next visit, your dentist will place your first set, or temporary, veneers. This process involves removing a portion of the enamel from each affected tooth. This small reduction in the surface of your teeth is critical, as it will allow your new veneer to lay flat with your natural teeth.
Your temporary veneer is attached with a small amount of removable glue. It’s important to remember that these veneers are temporary - treat them well. Brush gently and avoid eating anything that might dislodge or misalign your temporary veneer.
Once your permanent set is ready, it’s time to come back to Pacific Heights Dental for one more visit. Your dentist will remove the temporary veneers and replace them with your new permanent one. The first attachment is just a simple adhesive, allowing a sneak preview of your renewed smile. Now is the time to speak up about any concerns you might have so that adjustments can be made before the last step.
If you are happy with your appearance, your dentist will carefully clean the underlying tooth and permanently bond the veneer in place. Once this process is complete, your new smile is ready to be unveiled to the world!
Fitting your new veneers is non-surgical, so recovery should be swift and relatively painless.
Some of our patients have reported mild discomfort during this procedure, after the prep process and following the permanent bonding. Our San Francisco Veneer team has undergone extensive training to make your procedure as painless as possible.
We recommend the following care for all of our Veneer patients following their procedure:
If you find you are experiencing pain or discomfort during recovery, feel free to try OTC pain medication. In some cases, a cold compress can help relieve swelling. We recommend that all of our patients rest following the procedure, as this will give you time to adjust to your new teeth.
With good oral hygiene and regular dental checkups your porcelain veneers should last for decades.
The cost of porcelain veneers can vary depending on the extent of the work needed and the material used. Generally they can range from $950 to $2,700. Pacific Heights Dental offers consultations so that your dentist can determine what dental work you need and answer any questions you have.
Generally an anesthetic is used during the procedure so there is no pain.
A dental crown is different than a veneer in that it strengthens a damaged tooth as opposed to a veneer that covers the front and sides of a tooth.
With proper care, your brand-new smile will last for years to come and are well worth the investment. Schedule an appointment today to discuss your options for Porcelain Veneers in San Francisco.
