Dental Veneers in Savannah, GA

Dental veneers are a great solution for chipped, worn-down, crowded, or stained teeth. They are thin shells placed on the front surface of teeth to enhance their appearance. They can hide noticeable flaws and make teeth appear straight and even.

The shade of veneers can be adjusted to match your tooth color, and they are applied with minimal discomfort. They are also strong and durable and can last for many years before requiring replacement or repairs.

We custom-design every set of dental veneers to meet your needs, ensuring you get the desired results. This means that we will make two appointments with you— the first to take scans of your teeth and the second to apply and adjust the veneers to your teeth.

  • How do dental veneers work?

    Dental veneers are thin shells placed on the front surfaces of a person’s teeth. Depending on the type of veneer, a small amount of enamel may be removed from the teeth before installation. Veneers can cover noticeable flaws, adjust alignment, or improve spacing by changing the thickness of the teeth. They are easy to apply and require preparation of the teeth, followed by securing in place with a strong dental adhesive.

  • What is the difference between porcelain veneers and composite veneers?

    There are two main types of dental veneers—porcelain veneers and composite veneers. Both are great options to help you enhance your smile. Composite veneers are made in-office using tooth-colored resin and applied directly onto the teeth. They are typically less expensive and quicker to apply than porcelain veneers. They work well to cover up many aesthetic problems.

    On the other hand, porcelain veneers are custom-made to fit your teeth. They are made out of porcelain in a laboratory and sent to our office. We will apply them and ensure they fit your teeth correctly. Porcelain veneers generally last longer due to the stronger material they are made of. They provide a more natural look and can fix more significant cosmetic issues such as extremely dark stained teeth or teeth positioned incorrectly.

  • Veneers vs. crowns—what’s the difference?

    Veneers and crowns are cosmetic dental procedures that fix issues such as chips, stains, discoloration, or crooked teeth. However, there are significant differences between the two. Dental crowns cover the entire tooth surface, while veneers only cover the front part of the tooth. Crowns are thicker (2 mm) than veneers (1 mm) and provide more support to damaged teeth. Conversely, veneers are less invasive and require less removal of the original tooth structure.

    Both veneers and crowns can give you a natural-looking white, straight smile. If you’re interested in either of these procedures but are still determining which one is right for you, please contact our office. We’ll happily schedule a consultation and help you make an informed decision.

  • How much do dental veneers cost?

    Generally, veneers are not covered by insurance since they are considered a cosmetic procedure. The cost of veneers can vary depending on your dentist. On average, traditional dental veneers can cost between $925 to $2,500 per tooth, while no-prep dental veneers can cost around $800 to $2,000 per tooth.

  • How long do dental veneers last?

    With proper care, dental veneers can last an average of 10 to 20 years. However, it is important to be cautious when it comes to veneers, as excessive pressure can damage them. Therefore, it is recommended to maintain regular dental check-ups and brush and floss your teeth twice daily.
