Mesa area residents ask about the cost of porcelain veneers
Porcelain veneers are ideal in many situations. Teeth that are too small, crooked, uneven, permanently stained, or broken may benefit from veneer placement. It is common for patients who are dealing with imperfections in their smiles to speak to a dentist about restoring these teeth with veneers. Dr. Edward Fritz of New Health Dental in the Mesa area believes that these cosmetic restorations play an important part in restoring the natural beauty of the smile.
Veneers are very thin shells of porcelain that are custom-made for patients. They are crafted from ceramic, which is matched with the natural color of the teeth for seamless integration. They are bonded over the front of the teeth to change the appearance. Since a thin portion of the natural enamel must be removed to place the veneers, it is an irreversible solution. This is discussed with patients during their initial consultation appointment with Dr. Fritz.
Patients who visit New Health Dental are often concerned about the cost of placing porcelain veneers. Veneers are an affordable solution to many different problems in the smile and can be a part of an entire smile makeover. Patients consult with Dr. Fritz to find out if veneers are a more appropriate solution than alternative treatments such as tooth bleaching, orthodontics, dental crowns, or composite bonding. Veneers are strictly cosmetic, so their cost is typically not offset by dental insurance. Our front office works with patients to file appropriate insurance paperwork and to adapt a financing plan or other payment option that is best suited to one’s budget and lifestyle. We want to make all dental services affordable for our patients.
Feel free to contact our practice with any questions you may have about porcelain veneers and other restorations, or schedule your first consultation visit with our team.
