If you have been considering veneers but want some more information, at Exquisite Smiles we want to equip you with all the knowledge you need to decide if veneers are right for you. So here are some frequently asked questions about veneers and answers to those questions.

What is the purpose of veneers?

Veneers are covers bonded to teeth to change the color, shape, or size. Veneers can help people be more confident about their smiles.

Who is the right person to get veneers?

Veneers are for anyone that isn’t happy with the appearance of their teeth, whether that is for cosmetic reasons or medical reasons. Veneers can fix teeth broken in an accident and they can also be for people who don’t like the shapes of their teeth and want a different smile.

Who can do veneers? 

Your regular dentist should be able to do veneers. You don’t need to see a specialist. At Exquisite Smiles, Dr. Phelan can give you veneers that create the smile you want.

What are veneers made from?

Veneers are made from either porcelain or a resin composite. However, some people think porcelain veneers reflect light more like natural teeth and resist staining better as well.

How expensive are veneers?

The cost of veneers ranges depending on what you want to have done. Resin veneers typically cost less than porcelain veneers but they also don’t last as long. If you are considering veneers, schedule an appointment with Dr. Phelan to figure out the cost based on your needs.
