Veneers are a popular conservative cosmetic treatment that can greatly enhance your smile. A major benefit of veneers are they require little or no loss of natural tooth structure. Veneers are a thin material made of either porcelain, ceramic material, or composite resin that are permanently adhered to the frontward facing portion of the tooth.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are cosmetic dental services?
Any dental service that affects the appearance of a tooth or the smile is a cosmetic service. This may include fixing a cavity on a front tooth, reshaping a chipped or protrusive tooth, aligning several teeth with clear aligners, or teeth whitening.
What treatments fall under cosmetic dentistry?
Any dental treatment that affects the appearance of the teeth.
How long do cosmetic crowns last?
Longevity ranges from a couple of years to 40+ years. Proper brushing using a fluoride toothpaste, flossing, and routine professional dental cleanings improve the longevity of crowns. Clenching and grinding at night time, consumption of sugar, and failure to get routine professional dental cleanings decrease the longevity of crowns.
How much does a cosmetic filling cost?
Cosmetic fillings may range from $100-700 depending on the size and location of the filling.
Are dental crowns a cosmetic procedure?
The primary purpose for recommending a dental crown is usually functional, such as to repair a tooth with extensive decay, to reinforce a cracked tooth, or to rebuild a tooth that has significant wear. A dental crown covers the tooth 360 degrees. Modern dental crowns are often made out of advanced ceramic materials that are specifically chosen to match or compliment the cosmetic appearance of the smile. Occasionally crowns are recommended for cosmetic purposes only. This is usually done when other cosmetic treatments are unable to provide a satisfactory cosmetic outcome. Because dental crowns cover the tooth 360 degrees, they allow us to adjust the color, alignment, rotation, size, and shape of the tooth to create a smile that is unique and esthetic.
Is there an alternative to dental crowns?
In cases where a tooth is cracked or has had a root canal, a crown is often the best way to reinforce the tooth and protect against further damage. Occasionally, a filling can substitute for a crown, though longevity may be decreased.
