Awards season has started in Hollywood, and if you’ve been watching red carpet coverage of the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild Awards, you’ve probably noticed one thing that’s always in style. No, we’re not talking about Louboutins (although, yes, it’s true.) We’re talking about a flawless smile!
If you’re wondering what made it possible for these stars to have such beautiful teeth, it’s not just that they hit the genetic lottery. For many of them — and quite possibly most of them — cosmetic dentistry has allowed them to address their dental imperfections for a brighter, straighter smile.
And for many of the industry’s top actors and entertainers, dental veneers have been their go-to cosmetic dentistry procedure. It’s speculated that dental veneers are the secret behind the smiles of George Clooney, Demi Moore, and Tom Cruise!
And guess what? It’s possible for you to realize your ideal smile with the help of dental veneers too! At Beaumont Family Dentistry, we offer free consultations in a comfortable setting if you’re considering a smile makeover. Give us a call at any of our three Lexington, KY locations to learn more:
What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin but durable pieces of porcelain or composite material that are custom-made to look like your teeth but better. Bonded to the fronts of your natural teeth, dental veneers conceal your smile insecurities such as:
- Broken or fractured teeth
- Discoloration, even from intrinsic staining caused by trauma or certain medications (this type of discoloration can’t be addressed with teeth whitening treatments)
- Small gaps between teeth or other minor misalignment issues
- Irregularly shaped or worn down teeth
At Beaumont Family Dentistry, we offer various types of dental veneers, including the classic all-porcelain dental veneers known for their durability, coverage, and stain-resistance. We also offer thinner dental veneers, like Lumineers®, which require less preparation of healthy teeth for a less invasive procedure.
What Is The Process Of Getting Dental Veneers?
During your initial complimentary cosmetic dentistry consultation, we’ll have you talk about your smile wishlist. What are some things you’d like to fix? What do you want your new smile to look like?
Then, if it sounds like you’re a great candidate for dental veneers, we’ll go over the different kinds of dental veneers we offer and answer any questions you may have. We want to give you as much information as possible so you can make an informed decision about your dental care.
After that, depending on the kind of dental veneers you decide on, we’ll prepare the tooth if necessary. This involves removing a small amount of enamel, which is the hard protective outer layer of your teeth. During this phase, we’ll only remove enough to make room for your dental veneer. And don’t worry — there are no nerve endings in enamel, so you shouldn’t feel much discomfort.
We’ll take some images and impressions of your mouth, which will serve as the blueprint for your custom dental veneers. We’ll then send that information to the lab that will fabricate the dental veneers. When the lab sends the final product, you’ll come back to have them bonded to your teeth
When all is said and done, you’ll have a smile you’re excited to show off.
How Much Do Dental Veneers Cost?
The price of dental veneer treatments depends on a number of factors, including what kind of dental veneer you choose. Plus, dental veneers are an extremely versatile tool in cosmetic dentistry. You can have just one dental veneer made and placed to address a single problem tooth. Or, you can have a dental veneer placed on every tooth that’s visible when you smile for a dramatic transformation.
So, it’s difficult to even provide a rough estimate when it comes to the cost of treatment. The only way to know for sure is to come in for a consultation. And bonus: the consultation is free, so you have nothing to lose!
Still, we understand that any cosmetic dentistry procedure can be an investment. We’ve put together several convenient payment options to help you. We accept all major credit cards and most insurance plans, as well as CareCredit and financing with approved credit through Wells Fargo.
We also offer in-house membership plans to incentivize preventative care (free cleaning and exams!) and also give you a 12 percent off discount on more involved procedures.
Plus, our friendly administrative team would be happy to help you with any questions you have, either about the cost of your treatment or insurance inquiries. You’ll feel great about the care you receive at Beaumont Family Dentistry, both in the dental chair and afterward.
