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 tooth 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. Furthermore, our practice accepts flexible financing through CareCredit® which can reduce your initial out-of-pocket expenses and make treatment costs much more manageable.

Ensuring Your Satisfaction With Wax-Ups

We understand that making permanent changes to your teeth is a big commitment. To put you at ease and allow you to preview the results of your veneers, we will carefully plan every detail of your treatment with the help of wax-up models. These are lifesize physical representations of your teeth that will show you exactly what your dental veneers will look like.  This takes the guesswork and anxiety out of cosmetic treatment and allows you to move forward with porcelain veneers with confidence that you will be happy with the results. Find out what your new smile will look like by scheduling an appointment at our Vicksburg, MS, practice today. 

"Dr. Jay Measells is an excellent dentist.  Jay isn't happy unless the patient is happy.  If you want a dentist that takes personal pride in their work, then you should see Dr. Measells." Casey Stubbs

A Closer Look At The Procedure

Veneers are a cosmetic dentistry solution that provides dramatic results in just two to three office visits. However, it's important to understand that if you have issues such as gum disease, these will need to be resolved first.
Once the tooth has been prepared, your custom-made porcelain veneer is placed over the front surface to achieve an appearance of health and beauty.

Consultation

All patients will first meet with our dentist for an initial exam. During this visit, the dentist will assess your teeth and gums 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.

Consider a Full Smile Makeover

While porcelain veneers can achieve incredible smile transformations, they might not be able to fix all the concerns you have with your teeth. Sometimes, other techniques are needed to reach all your goals. Fortunately, Dr. Measells can combine multiple cosmetic and other procedures into a comprehensive treatment plan known as a smile makeover. 

If you are already considering treatment with porcelain veneers, it is a good time to think about a comprehensive approach. A smile makeover can enhance your smile in fewer appointments than a series of individual treatments would require. This can also save you money on materials and sedation costs.

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

If you have any questions about maintaining your porcelain veneers, please contact our Vicksburg practice for assistance.
