Veneers

Dental flaws such as cracks, chips, and discoloration can make you feel self-conscious about the way you look when you smile. 

Dr. Jay Measells offers Vicksburg, MS, patients an incredibly natural-looking solution to dental imperfections: porcelain veneers.

This simple procedure can change the way you look and feel about yourself. Learn how...

Veneers are one of the easiest ways to transform your teeth, your self-esteem, and your image.

So What Are Veneers?

Veneers are extremely thin porcelain shells bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth to mask various cosmetic imperfections. Our dentist customizes your veneers to match the natural shape and color of your teeth so they blend in seamlessly with your smile.

Cost of Veneers

Veneers are a custom procedure, so the cost will vary from one patient to the next. However, the restorations themselves are usually priced at $1,059 per veneer at our Vicksburg, MS, practice. While porcelain veneers do require an investment, especially if you are interested in treating several teeth, most patients find them worth the expense. There are no alternatives that give the same natural-looking and durable results, which can last well over a decade with proper care and maintenance.

Carefully Planned Treatment

Ensuring Your Satisfaction With Wax-Ups

We understand that it's a big commitment to make permanent changes to your teeth. To put you at ease and allow you to preview the results of your veneers, we carefully plan your treatment with the help of wax-up models. These are lifesize physical representations of your teeth that we use to show you exactly what your dental veneers will look like. This takes the guesswork and anxiety out of cosmetic treatment and allows you to make informed decisions about receiving porcelain veneers to upgrade your smile.

A Closer Look At The Procedure

Once the tooth has been prepared, the veneer is placed over the front surface to achieve an appearance of health and beauty.

Porcelain Veneer Treatment Timeline

Here is what you can expect during your veneer treatment at our Vicksburg, MS, practice:

Consultation

All patients will first meet with our dentist for an initial exam. During this visit, the dentist will assess your oral health and discuss your goals for treatment. We encourage you to explain the specific tooth problems you wish to see changed, and even bring in photos of what you would like your smile to look like.

Tooth Prep

We will prepare the teeth you have selected to treat for veneers. Our dentist will remove a tiny layer of enamel from the teeth, which will help the veneers achieve a natural appearance.

Impressions

Next, our dentist will take precise impressions of your smile to design the custom-fitting dental veneers. The impressions and designs are sent to our trusted dental lab to be hand-crafted in a way that looks indistinguishable from a natural tooth.

Placement

In a few weeks, the porcelain veneers will be ready, and you will return to our Vicksburg office for the last steps of treatment. Our dentist checks the look and fit of the dental veneer against your tooth and makes any necessary adjustments. Finally, he bonds the veneer in place using special dental cement.

Maintaining Your New Smile

To get the most out of your porcelain veneers, we recommend you follow these simple tips for maintenance:

Be Careful What You Chew

While porcelain is strong, your dental veneers are not immune to cracks or damage under pressure. To avoid breaking them, don't bite down on anything particularly hard or sticky.

Practice Good Oral Hygiene

In general, your veneers should be cared for in the same way as your natural teeth. Brush twice daily and floss at least once each day to maintain your oral health.

Avoid Staining Your Teeth

To keep your smile a bright consistent shade of white, avoid foods and drinks that are known to stain the enamel. While your veneers are stain-resistant, your natural teeth are not. If you notice any discoloration down the line, we can correct the problem with occasional whitening treatments

All patients will first meet with our dentist for an initial exam to assess their oral health and discuss their goals for treatment. We encourage you to explain the specific tooth problems you wish to see changed, and even bring in photos of what you would like your smile to look like.
