If your teeth are discolored, darkened, chipped, or unevenly spaced, we have the perfect solution. As part of our commitment to helping patients achieve a smile they can be proud of Idaho Falls ID cosmetic dentists, Drs. Drake and Jacobson, offer porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin pieces of custom-made porcelain that adhere to the surface of your teeth. Porcelain veneers can dramatically improve:
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Tooth discoloration
- Tooth shape and tooth size
- Spacing in between teeth
- Tooth function
If properly cared for, dental veneers can last up to 20 years or more. Not only do veneers improve the appearance of your teeth, they also restore your confidence and quality of life. At Park West Dental, we want to help you achieve the smile you have always wanted.
Lumineers® Porcelain Veneers
Lumineers are ultra thin and highly translucent porcelain veneers. Compared to standard whitening or other cosmetic dental procedures, they offer a quick and pain-free solution to reshape and improve your teeth. Because of their thinness, Lumineers don’t require as much reduction of the natural teeth as do traditional veneers, and their high durability makes them incredibly resilient, so they last more than 20 years.
Dental Veneers Procedure
The entire porcelain veneer process takes place over the course of three visits.
- Initial visit: Drs. Drake and Jacobson will meet with you to discuss your goals for your teeth and how you would like them to look. The visit may include taking x-rays and making impressions of your teeth.
- Second visit: The dentists will prepare your teeth for the veneers by removing some enamel and buffing the surface. A model or mold of your teeth will be made and sent to a laboratory that will construct your veneers. You’ll be fit with temporary veneers while you wait for your permanent ones to be made.
- Final Visit: The dentists will bond your permanent veneers to your existing teeth, completing the dental veneers process. Before you leave our team will educate you on how to best to care for your beautiful new smile.
How Much Do Dental Veneers Cost?
The price for veneers varies according to the extent of the procedure. Many different factors can affect the final cost such as: number of veneers needed, material used, and additional dental services needed. Typically, dental insurance does not cover dental veneers, but our staff suggests that you speak with your insurance provider. At Park West Dental, we will help find an affordable option that is right for you.
