Veneers

Everyone smiles in the same language. If you don't like what your smile is saying about you, ask your Dental Health Associates dentist about veneers.

Your smile speaks for itself! If your teeth are discolored or misshapen, your Dental Health Associate dentist may recommend dental veneers to improve the appearance of your smile. Veneers are thin, custom-made shells made using tooth-colored material. Veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth permanently. They create a bright, white smile with beautifully aligned, shapely teeth. The translucent ceramic quality of today's veneers look like your natural teeth.

Dental veneers:

  • are life-like and natural in appearance
  • can correct for spaces between teeth
  • cover stains and chips
  • are durable and long-lasting
  • enhance the appearance of the mouth and smile

Veneers FAQs

Veneers or Whitening, what's right for me?

If your teeth are only mildly discolored, your DHA dentist may steer you to the simpler alternative of whitening, perhaps combined with some simple orthodontic alignment if it is needed as well.

If you have a severe case of dull or discolored teeth, veneers may be the best solution for you. Although veneers require a much larger time and financial commitment than teeth whitening, the results are typically well worth it.

When are veneers appropriate?

Bonding is often an inexpensive and effective restoration for small chips and cracks in the teeth. Such minor problems may be functionally and cosmetically repaired with a composite "white filling," This is a procedure in which a composite resin material is bonded to the tooth, filling in the chip or crack and protecting the surrounding tooth structure.

However, for more severe cases of dullness, wear, discoloration, mild chipping, cracking, spacing, or uneven teeth, your DHA dentist may recommend dental veneers.

Does my insurance plan cover veneers?

This greatly depends on your insurance company. The cost of a veneer can vary. Coverage for a single veneer can range from 0% to 100%. Often times, though, cosmetic work is not covered at all.

It is not easy to know your coverage just by knowing the insurance company your plan is through, as there can be hundreds different plans through just one insurance company. To find out what percentage of veneers is covered by your insurance plan, refer to the enrollment information you were provided or call the 800 number on the back of your card to ask a representative any coverage questions. If you need help obtaining this information, a Dental Health Associate front desk staff member would be happy to help you.
