What Are Veneers?

In most cases, a full veneers procedure can be completed in as few as two visits. One of the most significant advantages of this cosmetic service is that it can address multiple imperfections at once, such as staining, discoloration, gaps, cracks, chips, and even misalignment. What’s more, you can enjoy your new and improved smile for well over a decade with proper care and maintenance.
The Process of Getting Veneers
First, you’ll have a consultation with our team at Murphy Family Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry to determine whether or not this cosmetic solution is right for you. Once we’ve confirmed you’re a good candidate for veneers, you’ll be scheduled for the first phase of treatment.
During your initial appointment, Dr. Najari or Dr. Nguyen will prep your smile by removing a small amount of enamel from your front teeth. This will ensure that your veneers lay flat and look natural. You'll wear a temporary set of veneers while our lab is crafting your permanent veneers.
When your custom-made veneers are ready, you'll return to our dental office to have them permanently attached. Once they’re bonded to your teeth, you’ll be ready to show off your beautiful new smile that same day!
Understanding the Cost of Veneers
Veneers are a great way to change numerous aspects of your smile at the same time. However, they are an investment, and they aren’t the right option for everyone. To find out whether or not veneers are the ideal cosmetic solution for you, it’s important that you have a comprehensive understanding of how much they will cost. Read on so you can make an informed decision about the future of your smile.
Cost VS Cosmetic Dentistry: What’s Right for Me?
For lots of patients, veneers seem like the ideal solution. However, it’s a good idea to look at other cosmetic treatments available to see how they would affect your smile. They all have different price points and can help patients to achieve a variety of different outcomes. Here are some of the most common options:
- Braces/Invisalign – If you have misaligned teeth, traditional braces and Invisalign are both great ways to correct this. Both of these options cost several thousands of dollars, but it is a highly effective way to straighten teeth.
- Gum Recontouring –Sometimes, cosmetic issues aren’t due to your teeth – it’s the gums! If you feel like you have an uneven gumline or “gummy” smile, gum recontouring could be a viable option for you.
- Direct Bonding – This is a minimally invasive procedure that can be completed in just one visit. It is one of the most affordable cosmetic options out there and is great for correcting minor flaws, like small chips and stains. Bonding lasts anywhere between 3 and 10 years.
- Veneers – Veneers certainly aren’t the cheapest option out there, but they are one of the easiest ways to transform numerous aspects of your smile at the same time. This can include the shape, color, and minor crookedness. The whole process can be completed in as few as two appointments and lasts up to 15 years or longer with proper maintenance.
How to Make Veneers Affordable
Most of the time, veneers are not covered by dental insurance because they are considered to be an elective procedure. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you are left on your own. We work with CareCredit – a third-party financing company that can split the cost of your treatment into manageable monthly installments with little to no interest.

If you’re looking to enhance your pearly whites, veneers are an excellent option for transforming your entire smile. However, they are quite an investment, so it pays to be well-informed. Here are the answers to some of the most common questions we receive about veneers in Murphy. If you don’t see the information that you’re looking for below, give us a call. We’d be happy to answer your questions and get you started with an initial consultation.
Are Veneers Permanent?
Veneers aren’t technically permanent because they will eventually need to be replaced. However, they are considered to be irreversible. To ensure that veneers fit properly on the teeth, small amounts of enamel need to be filed away, and removed enamel will not grow back. For this reason, teeth that have been prepared in this way will always need to be covered with crowns or veneers to keep them safe.
Can Veneers Be Used for Bite Corrections?
Veneers do not change the actual position of the teeth or jaw, so their effectiveness for treating bite issues will vary on how severe the problem is. If you have a mild open bite, veneers can make the teeth appear longer and wider so that they look like they line up. Veneers can also be used to hide small gaps between the teeth. Veneers will only be recommended for misalignment that doesn’t cause oral health problems but affects your appearance.
How Many Veneers Will I Need?
The goal of veneers is for all of your visible teeth to match. Ultimately, you will receive the appropriate number to accomplish this goal. Some patients opt for a single veneer to cover one tooth while others get anywhere from 6 to 12 for a more complete smile makeover. During your consultation with us, we will discuss what the right number is to achieve the goals you have for your smile.
Do Veneers Feel Like Real Teeth?
Many patients report that properly placed veneers feel completely natural once they are placed. They don’t even notice them when eating or speaking. Veneers are carefully crafted to fit perfectly on your teeth based on impressions made after a small amount of enamel has been removed. The enamel removal prevents the restoration from protruding uncomfortably and appearing to be bulky. The porcelain material used is very smooth and will not irritate the soft tissues inside your mouth either.
