If your teeth are discolored, darkened, chipped, missing, or unevenly spaced, we have the perfect solution at Park West Dental. As part of our commitment to helping patients achieve a smile they can be proud of Idaho Falls ID cosmetic dentists, Drs. Drake and Jacobson, offer porcelain veneers. Veneers are a restorative treatment that can simultaneously fix your teeth’s size, shape, color, and spacing issues while restoring your confidence and quality of life.
What Are Veneers?
Veneers are thin pieces of custom-made, highly durable, tooth-shaped porcelain or resin composite materials that adhere to the front surface of your teeth. They improve your teeth’s appearance by changing their shade, shape, and size so that you achieve the smile you have always wanted.
What Are Lumineers®?
Lumineers are ultrathin and highly translucent porcelain veneers. They offer a pain-free approach to whitening and reshaping your teeth. Because of their thinness, Lumineers don’t require as much reduction of the natural teeth as do traditional veneers, and their high durability makes them incredibly resilient, so they last more than 20 years. Lumineers are priced similarly to traditional veneers, giving patients a real reason to smile.
Dental Veneers Procedure
The entire porcelain veneer process takes place over the course of three visits.
- Initial visit: Drs. Drake and Jacobson will meet with you to discuss your goals for your teeth and how you would like them to look. The visit may include taking x-rays and making impressions of your teeth.
- Second visit: Drs. Drake and Jacobson will prepare your teeth for the veneers by removing some enamel and buffing the surface. A model or mold of your teeth will be made and sent to a laboratory that will construct your veneers. You’ll be fit with temporary veneers while you wait for your permanent ones to be made.
- Final Visit: Drs. Drake and Jacobson will bond your permanent veneers to your existing teeth, completing the dental veneers process. Before you leave our team will educate you on how to best to care for your beautiful new smile.
The price for veneers varies according to the extent of the procedure. At Park West Dental , we will work with you to find an affordable option that is right for you.
