King House Dental Group
Dental veneers are personalized porcelain thin stripes made by a dental laboratory that match the color and size of the patient’s teeth. The dentist bonds them onto the front teeth to create a dazzling smile. Redlands, CA, dentist Dr. Steve Tatevossian offers this dental restoration, which can transform the mouth into a beautiful, durable smile that can last for years.
Prior to the Procedure
The dentist will do an examination, take photos, measurements, and impressions of the patient’s teeth and send them to a dental laboratory. This comprehensive process will help the dentist understand, plan, and fulfill the patient’s aesthetic goals.
In the Lab
3D models of the patient’s teeth will be created and fitted, but minor adjustments can still be made during the following visit.
During the Third Visit
The patient’s teeth will be prepared for the veneers by removing a thin layer of the enamel, and the custom veneers will be placed and bonded to the teeth.
Dental veneers are a more expensive cosmetic dental treatment because of the skill and technology used to transform the tooth. The cost varies depending on the number of teeth to be treated.
Most dental insurance policies do not cover dental veneers since they are considered a cosmetic procedure, but our office will confirm with the insurance provider previous to the treatment.
In addition, we offer several financing and payment plans to assist patients.
Although porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, patients are still instructed to avoid consuming excessive amounts of staining food and drinks and keeping a good oral hygiene regime.
Since dental veneers are considered a cosmetic and not restorative or preventative service, most patients will not be covered by their dental insurance. Our office works with patients to provide payment plans and options to fit their needs and budget.
Patients are encouraged to continue using the same hygiene routine they use on their natural teeth on veneers. In addition, patients are recommended to have periodic dental examinations and professional cleanings, regular brushing and flossing, as well as keeping a healthy diet.
