With dental veneers, our skilled dental team, led by Dr. Bacquet, can mask minor tooth and gum flaws in your smile, creating a brand-new, celebrity-caliber smile that you’ll love sharing with the world. 

What Is a Dental Veneer?

At Saticoy Plaza Dentistry, we provide thin porcelain veneers shells customized to fit perfectly over the teeth, hiding minor problems like discoloration, chips in your teeth, unevenly sized teeth, or small gaps between your teeth. 

They are an excellent, minimally invasive method for changing the appearance of your smile, and they can be placed quickly.

However, you should know a few things about dental veneers before choosing veneers to recreate your smile.

We May Need to Alter Your Teeth to Accommodate Veneers

To place a dental veneer, we typically must remove small amounts of enamel. This ensures that the veneers aren’t bulky but instead fit perfectly over the tooth, creating an entirely natural appearance. However, this also means the procedure is irreversible, and you must wear veneers for life. This is not a problem for most who want veneers because they plan to wear them long-term, enjoying a bright, ideal smile. 

Dental Bonding Is a Good Alternative

While porcelain veneers provide an outstanding solution for many patients, they won’t meet the needs of everyone. In some cases, we can achieve similar results with dental bonding, altering the appearance of your teeth and closing gaps in your smile. And dental bonding is much more affordable than veneers, making bonding an excellent option for patients on a budget.

Eligible Patients Can Finance Dental Treatments

Patients considering their cosmetic treatment options and their budget may want to think about applying for CareCredit financing. If you really want porcelain veneers to reshape your smile but don’t feel you can afford a lump sum payment, CareCredit can offer a good solution, allowing you to split the sum into monthly payments. Payments paid within the agreed amount of time won’t incur any interest, making this payment solution even more appealing to many patients.
