Porcelain dental veneers improve face value

GIFFORD FAMILY DENTISTRY - Todd Gifford, DMDAdvances in dental technology make now the perfect time to get the straighter, whiter teeth you've always wanted in just a matter of weeks.

Today's porcelain veneers are more beautiful and last longer than ever before.  In fact, your new veneers could last a lifetime.

Premature failures are essentially limited to recurrent tooth decay on the natural tooth structure supporting the veneer and chipping of the porcelain veneer, usually only seen in patients who clench or grind their teeth.

If these situations do occur, they can often be resolved with simple smoothing of the chipped area or placement of a "patch" filling in the area of decay – no need to replace the entire veneer.

If more extensive damage occurs, only the single veneer needs to be replaced, and it can be custom-matched to the other veneers, preserving your beautiful smile with minimal expense.

The process of getting your custom porcelain veneers includes an initial consultation with your dentist, approval of your final smile design, the actual treatment appointment and the delivery of the final porcelain veneers.

As an elective procedure, traditional dental insurance usually does not help with the patient's out-of-pocket expense. Veneers are comparable in cost to crowns.

At your consultation, an individual treatment plan will be created based on your specific wants and needs.  And all estimated costs are communicated prior to any work being done – no surprises!
