FAQ’s About Smile Designs & Veneers

This is Dr. Hansen Liang from Fresh Smile Dental Group. Today we’ll be talking about the most frequently asked questions that I get from patients regarding smile designs and veneers.

We do a fair number of small design cases every year. Typically these are from patients between the ages of 40 and 60 with old restorations, worn teeth, or people just wanting a new, fresh mouth. Today we’re going to cover some of the top questions that I get from patients regarding small design.

How Much Does It Cost?

The cost of a small design or veneer case is determined on an individual case basis. We look at a number of different things. Including the current condition of your teeth, how many teeth are involved, and how your smile fits with your face. After we have analyzed and discussed all the information, we then develop an individualized plan that involves anywhere from six to twelve teeth. This is one of the most common questions. So we provide a free consultation to confirm what’s possible for you and to provide a personalized estimate.

How Long Does the Procedure Take?

Usually the whole process involves four to five appointments and from initial consultation to seating of the veneers. The preparation appointment is the longest one which usually involves about three hours. The cementation appointment is about a two hour appointment. All the other appointments are approximately 30 minutes in length. So the whole process, from start to finish, usually takes about four to six weeks.

How Long Will They Last?

A small design case typically lasts between 15 and 20 years, but can be even longer with proper maintenance and proper care.
