Challgren Dentistry

My teeth are chipped and damaged. Is there anything I can do?

You might be a good candidate for veneers. 

Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front of your teeth. They can conceal a range of cosmetic problems and are often part of a cosmetic dentistry smile makeover. 

Using veneers, we can repair: 

  • Chips and cosmetic cracks
  • Discolorations that are resistant to teeth whitening treatments
  • Wide gaps between teeth
  • Small, worn, or unusually shaped teeth
  • Crooked teeth

Veneers are a good choice if your teeth are generally healthy and you don't have any decay or gum disease. If you do happen to have areas of decay or gum disease, or if you have habits that could be damaging to your veneers like chewing your fingernails or grinding your teeth, we will need to treat those issues first before we can place your veneers. 

Veneers are an investment and should be considered as such. Once your teeth are prepped for veneers, we cannot reverse the process. With good care, your veneers can last for many years before they need to be replaced. 

Veneers are typically not covered by insurance, but we can discuss options like financing through CareCredit that can make it easier to fit cosmetic dentistry into your budget. Call today to schedule your consultation with our Lafayette dentists.
