Why Choose Grand Dental - Sycamore for Veneers?

What are Dental Veneers?

Placement of veneers

Dental veneers are small, thin sheaths of porcelain or ceramic that are used to hide cosmetic flaws found on the surfaces of teeth. Whether it is chips, cracks, stains, or minor gaps, these restorations are custom-made to transform appearances.

Used for decades to change the way a smile looks, Hollywood’s elite first used them in film. Although removable and bulkier than those made today, they were deemed only attainable by the rich and famous. Over the years, though, advancements in dentistry led to a thinner restoration that is more attractive and attainable.

The Process of Getting Veneers

The veneer process requires several steps. After meeting with a member of our team to discuss your eligibility, we will begin by discussing the desired shade of your new teeth. Using a shade guide, we will make notes about the chosen color so that the information can be sent to lab technicians.

We will then remove a small portion of tooth enamel from each tooth so that a bonding agent can properly adhere once the veneer is ready to be put in place.

We will take impressions of your smile so that lab technicians can begin to fabricate your new teeth, and we’ll fit you with temporary veneers that you will need to wear in the meantime.

Once your finalized veneers are ready, you will return to our office to have your temporary veneers removed and your permanent ones carefully put into place. A final polish will allow you to walk away with a beautiful smile.

The cost of veneers is different for each person. There are countless factors that our team at Grand Dental – Sycamore must consider before formulating an estimate.

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

There are many cosmetic options available at Grand Dental – Sycamore. Below, you will find a list of those that you can choose from when looking to change the appearance of your smile:

  • Veneers: Capable of transforming the size, shape, and shade of teeth, veneers are custom-made to cover imperfections and can last 10+ years. Although more expensive because of their permanency and longevity, they do produce beautiful results.
  • Metal-Free Dental Restorations: As decay and damage can plague smiles, so can stains and small chips. If metal-free dental restoration is what you desire, investing in one or two might be feasible, but more than that will cause your bill to increase significantly.
  • Cosmetic Dental Bonding: As a reversible form of cosmetic treatment, the use of composite resin, which is matched to your natural tooth enamel shade, allows for a less expensive and faster form of treatment that can last several years.
  • Teeth Whitening: Using take-home whitening kits that allow for greater convenience and longer-lasting results, teeth whitening from our office may be more expensive than store-bought varieties, but the brightness of your teeth will prove that it is worth the investment.
  • Gum Recontouring: Permanent in its ability to remove excess gum tissue that will not grow back, gum recontouring is a costlier procedure; however, in the long run, you never have to worry about needing it again.

How to Make Veneers Affordable

If you are planning to use your dental insurance to pay for your veneers, you’ll be disappointed to learn that most companies do not provide coverage for this type of treatment. As a non-medical solution, it is not something you can expect your insurer to pay for.

However, at Grand Dental – Sycamore, we offer an in-house membership plan that makes it easy to enroll. By paying a low fee each year, you can receive valuable discounts on various services offered by our dental team.

There is also the option of enrolling in a low-interest or zero-interest payment plan through CareCredit, which promises no surprise fees and allows you to pay off your treatment over time.
