veneers to improve smile

Orange City and Deltona, FL

Millions of people are unhappy with some aspect of their smile. Are you one of them? If so, then veneers could be the answer you have been seeking! When installed by an expert cosmetic dentist in Orange City like Terry Soule, DDS, veneers can make a big difference in the way your smile looks. Read on for a few of the reasons why veneers can be the best option to improve your smile.

Why are veneers so popular?

A dentist in California invented veneers in 1928. Used in Hollywood, these early veneers were placed as a purely temporary measure to improve the appearance of actors’ teeth. This technology has come a long way from those early veneers. Modern veneers like the ones used at Terry Soule, DDS, are made with high-quality dental porcelain. Not only is this material beautiful and durable, but dental porcelain will not stain, maintaining the appearance of whiter teeth that look perfect. Dental porcelain also is translucent, reflecting light in a manner similar to natural tooth enamel. This translucency, combined with the ability to tailor the shade of your veneers to any hue, makes the veneers almost indistinguishable from the other healthy teeth in your mouth. Or, if you are looking to brighten your entire smile, veneers can be placed over the front portion of your teeth, producing a whiter smile that will last much longer than any whitening treatment.  

Placed across the front of the teeth, veneers can be installed while removing a minimal portion of the existing tooth structure—just enough so that the veneers can make a smooth bond against the surface of your teeth. Veneers are versatile. They can address a host of aesthetic issues, including slight crookedness, discoloration that has proven resistant to teeth whitening, misshapen teeth, teeth of different sizes, teeth that are chipped or broken, or concealing an undesired gap between two teeth. If you opt against veneers, it may require multiple cosmetic dental procedures to resolve the same aesthetic issues that a single veneer or set of veneers can treat.

What about the cost of veneers?

Even though dental porcelain is an expensive material, and receiving veneers entails at least two appointments at our office, we would like to point out the long-term value of veneers. Their versatility, beauty, and durability make them one of the most popular treatment options in cosmetic dentistry for a reason! The total cost will depend on how many veneers you receive, and if you require any other procedures to complete your smile makeover. Terry Soule, DDS, accepts several different forms of payment, including cash, most major credit cards, and several dental insurance plans—although insurance may not cover veneers as cosmetic procedures often are deemed to be elective. Our office also works with third-party financing companies such as CareCredit and Lending USA. These companies allow you to pay for the entire cost of treatment, and then later make monthly payments, sometimes interest-free.
