Dental veneers were almost exclusive to celebrities in the past, providing them with symmetrical and stunning smiles for print and film. Today, Dr. Michael Chandler, DDS is happy to offer porcelain veneers right here in our Edmond dentist office!

Dental veneers are tooth shells cemented to the fronts of treated teeth. They look like natural enamel but conceal many flaws.

What Do Dental Veneers Conceal?

Veneers are probably the most versatile cosmetic dental service because they can hide so many different types of flaws, including:

  • Short or worn teeth
  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Uneven spacing
  • Midline issues
  • Slightly crooked teeth
  • Gummy smiles

How Much Do Dental Veneers Cost?

The price for dental veneers varies for several reasons, including:

  • The number of veneers you choose
  • Any required pretreatments
  • The complexity of your case

With veneers, your dentist has to remove or file away a little bit of porcelain to flush your veneers against your gums and any untreated teeth. Doing this prevents bulking, making veneers a permanent part of your oral anatomy and a true investment in your smile.

Which Option Is Better: Dental Crowns, Bonding, or Veneers?

During your consultation, your cosmetic dentist in Edmond will let you know which option is best for you based on your goals.

Dental crowns conceal tooth flaws and shore up a weak tooth to prevent fractures. They can work alone or as part of tooth replacement—anchoring a dental bridge or topping a dental implant. Our dental crowns are permanently colored and shaped to complement your smile.

Tooth bonding is an inexpensive way to conceal tooth flaws, but it does not have the versatility of the veneer or even the crown. For example, it cannot hide gummy smiles or stabilize severely broken teeth. In addition, it cannot create the illusion of an aligned smile. However, it is a great way to hide a chip or discoloration.
