If you’re wondering about whether or not porcelain veneers are right for you, the best way to know with certainty is to visit our office for a consultation. Dr. Ruff will carefully examine your smile and the problems affecting it before developing your personalized treatment plan.

The Treatment Process for Porcelain Veneers

After your consultation, you’ll come in for your first visit. Dr. Ruff, an experienced dentist in Fayetteville, will prepare your teeth by removing a slight portion of your enamel to accommodate your veneers. After, she will take special images and impressions of your smile, which are sent to an expert dental lab for the creation of your veneers. Once they’re made, you’ll come back into our office, where Dr. Ruff will ensure that you’re happy with your veneers before permanently bonding them to the front surfaces of your teeth. The result is a seamless smile transformation that allows you to flash your teeth with ultimate confidence.

The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

If you have chipped, gapped, misshapen, or discolored teeth, then porcelain veneers may be the right cosmetic solution for you. At Ascot Aesthetic Implants & Dentistry, we take great pride in having developed a reputation for great cosmetic dentistry results. For Fayetteville, NC and surrounding communities, our office is the place to explore smile makeover options like porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers can actually cover up problems that you might have with your smile’s appearance. These thin, tooth-shaped pieces of porcelain fit right over your front teeth, and this means that with a single procedure, we may be able to correct many problems. Additionally, dental porcelain is relatively stain-proof, allowing you to enjoy a white smile for years to come.

Understanding the Cost of Veneers

You may hesitate to get veneers due to their price. That’s only natural — treatment wouldn’t make sense if it exceeds your budget or “breaks the bank.” Still, the cost of veneers in Fayetteville doesn’t have to be a dealbreaker. After all, these shells are a great investment in a Hollywood-level smile! To be safe, though, we at Ascot Aesthetic Implants & Dentistry have listed the costs and features of our cosmetic services. That way, you can see if veneers are right for you. Of course, feel free to call our office for more details.

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

Our practice has a variety of cosmetic treatments, but each has different costs and results. It’s thus a good idea to compare them before making a final decision. To that end, our procedures include:

  • Crown Lengthening: This option adjusts or raises your gum line to improve your smile’s look. It’s also cost-effective, as it only costs a few hundred dollars per tooth and offers permanent results.
  • Direct Bonding: Direct bonding uses tooth-colored resin to fix minor smile flaws. As the quickest and cheapest cosmetic procedure, its costs are little. However, its resin can’t hide or undo severe smile flaws. Plus, bonding isn’t long-lasting and has to be redone every few years.
  • Teeth Whitening: Per its name, teeth whitening whitens enamel. It’s relatively fast and inexpensive, whether done in-office or at home. Keep in mind, though, that its bleaching gel only changes tooth color; it won’t affect tooth shape or position.
  • Metal-Free Restorations : Metal-free restorations are crowns, fillings, and bridges that rely on non-metallic materials. In most cases, they fix a tooth’s appearance and function. At the same time, they tend to be pricier than other cosmetic options.
  • Veneers: Veneers are shells that cover the fronts of teeth. Being made of porcelain or ceramic, they transform every aspect of your smile — tooth color, shape, and position. Given their features, they can be expensive.

How to Make Veneers Affordable

Dental insurance plans usually don’t cover veneers. Most consider them “medically unnecessary” and thus unfit for discounts. That said, there are other ways to make them more affordable.

Consider us at Ascot Aesthetic Implants & Dentistry, for instance. Our practice offers flexible financing through CareCredit. As such, you can pay for care with monthly, low-interest installments. That way, you’d cover a treatment’s cost over time instead of all at once.

If you want to know more about the cost of veneers in Fayetteville, go ahead and book a consultation visit with us! Our team would be happy to transform your smile in a budget-friendly way.

Come Get Your New Smile!

Veneer FAQs

If you still have questions, that’s okay – you’re in the right place! Our team is here to answer any questions you have at your initial consultation. However, if you’d like to learn more to prepare for your appointment, then simply keep reading.

Are Veneers Permanent?

Many patients wonder if veneers are permanent since the preparation process is considered to be irreversible. In short, the answer is “no.” The good news is that, with proper care, they can last for well over a decade. That’s why it’s important to follow all of your dentist’s recommendations, like exercising caution with extremely hard foods, avoiding unhealthy dental habits like smoking, and implementing a solid oral hygiene regimen.

Is There Anything I Can’t Eat with Veneers?

Before your permanent veneers arrive, you will wear temporary ones. Since they aren’t designed to last long-term, you should avoid all hard foods, including candy, raw fruits and vegetables, and ice. Once your permanent veneers are in place, you’ll be able to enjoy a varied diet once more. To keep them in pristine condition, do your best to steer clear of dark beverages that can cause stains, sticky foods that can tug on your veneers, and crunchy foods that can cause them to chip. It’s also a good idea to refrain from drinking alcohol in excess since it can weaken the bonding material.

Will I Still Be Able to Drink Coffee with Veneers?

Yes, you can drink coffee with veneers! Porcelain is a high quality, lifelike dental material that comes with an added bonus: it’s stain-resistant. With that said, it’s recommended that you use a straw when consuming any dark-colored beverages to keep your new and improved smile nice and bright for as long as possible.

How Many Veneers Will I Need?

That depends! If you want to completely transform your smile, then you may need 10-12 veneers to achieve the results you desire. If you want veneers on just the top teeth that show when you smile, then 6-8 may be more realistic. And, of course, if you have one tooth that is chipped or stained, then you may just need one veneer. Ultimately, the answer to how many you need will depend entirely on your smile goals, which is one of the many reasons the initial consultation is so important.

Can You Whiten Veneers?

The short answer is that whitening procedures don’t lighten veneers like they do enamel. So, if you want to brighten your entire smile, it’s best to start with a teeth whitening treatment and then have your veneers color matched to that shade. If your existing veneers have begun to dull, then don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment with our Fayetteville cosmetic dentist. From there, she can determine the best course of action, like having them shaded or replaced.
