Dental veneers are thin, strong, custom-crafted porcelain shells that fit over the visible portion of your teeth to conceal any cosmetic imperfections. They’re permanently bonded over your natural teeth to change their color, shape, and size for a seamless and complete grin. To find out if veneers are the right solution for you, schedule a consultation with your cosmetic dentist today.
Depending on the severity of your problems and what you’d like to have repaired, porcelain veneers in Reno are a great option for all kinds of patients. The procedure takes place over a few weeks and offers several benefits such as being stain resistant, custom-fitted, and gentle on gum tissue. Patients who are good candidates are typically looking to fix problems such as:
The process of getting porcelain veneers takes place over two visits with our cosmetic dentists at Summit Boulevard Dental. Before the procedure begins, we recommend scheduling a consultation so we can learn more about the goals you have for your grin and ask us any questions you may have about dental veneers. After that, we’ll develop a unique treatment plan and start off by preparing your teeth for your custom veneers by removing a small portion of your natural enamel. This allows the shells to lay flush with your existing teeth and not protrude from your mouth.
We’ll then take impressions of the teeth you’d like to have fixed and send them off to our dental laboratory to create your permanent veneers to our specifications. While we’re waiting to receive them, we’ll place temporary ones. Typically, it takes about two to four weeks for your veneers to be made. We’ll then schedule your final appointment and place them, making any necessary final adjustments.
One great benefit of porcelain veneers is that they don’t require any special care. Be sure to keep up with your oral hygiene routine by brushing twice each day and flossing at least once a day. Rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash and be sure to schedule your routine checkups and cleanings with us so we can make sure they’re in good shape! To get the most out of your veneers, it’s also best to avoid sticky and hard foods, because while they’re strong, they’re not indestructible.

Veneers in Reno are an excellent solution to drastically improve your smile; however, you will need to permanently alter your teeth. We know it’s a big decision and you’re sure to have several questions. We’ll take the time to explain the process and address any concerns during your initial consultation. In the meantime, here are the answers to a few common questions to help you decide if veneers are right for you.
A veneer can be placed on a single tooth; however, we often recommend they are applied to the front 2, 4, or 8 teeth to create a more natural-looking appearance. We will assess your smile and discuss the results you want to achieve to determine how many veneers you’ll need.
Gum contouring and veneers often go hand in hand, but the sculpting treatment isn’t recommended for everyone. If you have smaller than average teeth or your gum line has been damaged by disease or trauma, we may recommend the soft tissue treatment to reveal more of your tooth’s surface. We’ll explain if the procedure is necessary during your initial consultation. While it may add another step to your plan, it helps create the picture-perfect smile you deserve.
Porcelain is the preferred material for veneers for several reasons, like the fact it’s stain resistant. Although your veneers won’t discolor, there are various reasons they can appear to lose their luster, such as scratches on their surface or darkening of your natural teeth. You can avoid both issues by using a soft-bristled toothbrush and a nonabrasive toothpaste to clean all surfaces of your teeth at least twice a day. It’s also important to limit your contact with stain-causing factors, like coffee and smoking. Don’t forget to floss every night before going to bed and visit your dentist twice a year for preventive services.
There isn’t a set fee for veneers because the cost is determined by various factors, like the number of teeth you’re treating and if you need any additional procedures. We will provide you with a custom estimate and discuss the cost of your treatment. We accept multiple payment options to keep your new smile within your budget, such as third-party financing with CareCredit.
Most dental insurances won’t cover the cost of elective treatments, but there are some exceptions. We will explain if you can use your policy to reduce the amount you need to pay. If there’s any out-of-pocket balance, we will help you find the solutions you need to keep your veneers affordable.
