The red carpet coverage before the Academy Awards is always great entertainment. You get to see all the nominees dressed to the nines, in gowns and tuxedos. But regardless of the latest fashion trends, there’s one thing you’re bound to see season after season: beautiful smiles!
It’s no secret that celebrities often rely on cosmetic dentistry to fix their smile imperfections, and they often request dental veneers as a way to whiten teeth and conceal damage. Today, dental veneers are more accessible than ever, and you can find your perfect cosmetic dentistry solution at A Perfect Smile.
Our Falmouth, ME office is proud to offer a variety of dental veneers that require little to no preparation of your natural teeth! This means you’ll be able to enjoy a new smile faster and with less discomfort compared to conventional dental veneer procedures.
Read on to learn more about what dental veneers can do for your smile. Then, give us a call at (207) 536-3508 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Nelson.
Dental Veneers 101
Dental veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or composite material that are custom-made to look like your natural teeth but better! They’re bonded to the front-facing surfaces of your teeth to hide smile flaws such as discoloration, minor cracks, chips, misshapenness, and slight misalignment issues.
Less Invasive Dental Veneers
Usually, dental veneers require removal of some of your tooth enamel. Otherwise, the dental veneers would look unnatural when bonded to your teeth. But at A Perfect Smile, we’ve found ways to minimize and even eliminate the need for the removal of healthy tooth structure when you opt for dental veneers!
This is possible because we offer ultra-thin dental veneers that require less preparation of your teeth! We also offer a wide variety of dental veneers and would be happy to help you choose one that’s right for your needs.
- DuraThin. These thin, porcelain veneers are durable once bonded to teeth and are made by experts to look convincingly natural. What’s more, they can be placed without preparation of your healthy teeth. A Perfect Smile is one of the only offices in Maine to offer this type of veneers! You’ll love the results of DuraThin veneers!
- EasySmile: These veneers are made of resin. They’re generally a cost-effective option that can be placed without much if any preparation of your teeth.
- e.max: This type of veneer is made from ceramic, which allows them to be both durable and natural-looking. These veneers require minimal preparation of your teeth.
- Lumineers®: This popular brand of veneer is roughly the thickness of a contact lens. They can be placed in as few as two visits.
What To Expect
Getting dental veneers placed — like any cosmetic dentistry procedure — can be a big decision. But it’s one that will likely help you feel great about your smile, boost your confidence, and ultimately improve your quality of life.
The first thing that’ll happen when you come to A Perfect Smile for dental veneers will be your initial consultation. Our compassionate team will listen to your smile goals, what you hope to achieve with dental veneers. Then, we’ll review the different kinds of dental veneers that we offer to help determine which one best meets your needs.
After that, we’ll prepare your teeth if necessary and take some images and impressions of your teeth. This information will serve as a guideline for the fabrication of your dental veneers. We’ll send the information to a trusted lab, which will create your custom veneers.
Then, once the final product is sent back to our office, we’ll bond the veneers to your teeth and cure it with a special light. After making final adjustments, you’ll walk out of our office with a brand new smile!
Paying For Your Veneers
One of the best things about dental veneers is that they’re extremely versatile. Not only are there multiple kinds of veneers to choose from, but they’re also versatile in the ways they can be applied. You can get just one dental veneer if you have a single problematic tooth. But you can also bond a dental veneer to every tooth that’s visible when you smile for a consistent and uniform look! According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, most patients get four or more veneers placed at one time.
But because there are so many variables involved in dental veneer treatment, it’s difficult to provide a rough estimate of how much they cost. The best way to find out is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Nelson.
The staff at A Perfect Smile does, however, want to make paying for your treatment as simple and stress-free as your dental work itself! That’s why we’ve established a convenient set of payment options. We accept major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express) as well as cash and check.
We also work with CareCredit, a service that provides low-interest and even no-interest financing for those who qualify! And of course, if you have any questions about paying for treatment or anything surrounding your dental work, feel free to call our office. Our administrative team would be happy to help!
