Veneers are a specialized dental treatment that can radically enhance your oral health and your life.

With that in mind, it’s unsurprising that when considering veneers, Philadelphia patients have a lot of questions for dental professionals.

Perhaps the most important question routinely asked by Philadelphia patients is simply: “What are veneers?”

Penn Dental Medicine is proud to offer all of the resources that patients in pursuit of dental veneers may need, including answers to their pertinent questions. Listed below are clear, detailed answers to some of the questions most commonly asked of veneer dentists:

  • What are veneers?
    The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry defines veneers as “a thin piece of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel.”
  • What types of dental issues can veneers address?
    Veneers can be used to repair damaged teeth or to cosmetically enhance teeth. They are routinely used to repair chipped, fractured, stained, discolored gapped, or misaligned teeth. They can also increase the brightness of a patient’s teeth.
  • Are veneers recommended for all types of patients?
    Veneers are a significantly less intrusive treatment option compared to crowns or braces. For patients with minor tooth chips or cracks, they are an excellent option. Veneers are also recommended for patients looking to correct minor cosmetic issues.However, the installation of veneers is an irreversible procedure. Veneers are susceptible to wear and tear and will eventually require replacement. For these reasons, they are not advised for all patients.
  • Where can I find affordable veneers?
    The cost of veneers will vary based on your dental practice and insurance.
