At Fain Dental Arts, we always welcome and encourage your questions. If you have a concern, we want to know about it because if it is important to you, it's important to us. And knowing what's on your mind helps us create a personalized treatment plan that fits all your needs.

Porcelain Veneers

We offer no charge cosmetic consultations, virtual consults using Skype or Facetime, or send us a picture of your smile and we can give you some ideas on what is possible.

This depends on what your goals are for your smile improvement. We offer complimentary cosmetic consultations and virtual consultations.

Bad breath is caused by bacteria. If you brush and floss your veneers, they will not give you bad breath. The veneers are bonded directly to your tooth and there is no gap that can accumulate bacteria.

We can place Lumineers or no-prep veneers if you are concerned about drilling your teeth, but there are limitations. Typically porcelain veneers involve the removal of a very small amount of tooth structure in order to accommodate the thickness of the porcelain so that the teeth do not appear too thick and bulky.

The cost depends on the current health of your teeth, what your current smile looks like, the current and desired color, how many teeth are being treated, your bite relationship and alignment of your teeth, whether the veneers are going to match natural teeth or existing crowns, the gum health, the type of porcelain used, the skill and training of the dentist and the skill and artistic ability of the laboratory technician. Most patients in our office pay between $1,000 to $2,000 per tooth.

We strive to achieve the highest cosmetic result by using the highest quality materials. Take a look at our before and after pictures to see how natural porcelain veneers can look. Poorly fabricated veneers can look fake. While it may be tempting to find a dentist offering the lowest price, this can be a serious mistake.

If the veneers are placed by a skilled dentist they will not damage your teeth or your gums.
