His experienced technician individually crafts each veneer from a highly detailed blueprint that
Dr. Howard has designed specifically for each patient.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Your smile is your greeting to family and friends, as well as a key element in social and work interactions. At the Center for Advanced Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry, we know that smiles are important! If you're worried about the way your smile looks, then consider the benefits of porcelain veneers! When you visit our San Marcos and Rancho Bernardo dental offices, we can use porcelain veneers to give you a brand-new smile free of cracks, chips, gaps, misshapen or broken teeth, discolorations, and other dental flaws. Veneers can also help with bite-related problems, correcting tooth positions to give you better functionality in how you chew as well as talk.

Porcelain veneers not only give you a gorgeous smile that increases your confidence and improves your appearance, they offer other benefits, too! Veneers add strength to your teeth, giving you complete functionality. They're durable, too. With proper care, your veneers will last for years to come! Porcelain reflects light the same way as enamel, which gives your veneers a very nice, genuine, and natural look. Porcelain is also a biocompatible material—and that means your new veneers won't irritate your gums or appear unnatural. Porcelain is also stain-resistant, so your new smile will stay bright for a long time.

The Porcelain Veneer Process

Dr. Nelson Y. Howard can correct your smile flaws with porcelain veneers – in as few as just two treatments! Porcelain veneers can change the shape, size, color, and appearance of your teeth, giving them a much more natural, beautiful, aligned look. Sometimes, porcelain veneers are called “instant orthodontics” because veneers can also correct your cosmetic misalignments. Porcelain veneers are often a great alternative for full crowns because it requires less removal of tooth structure. And if you have teeth that resist whitening, a veneer can be placed to ensure your smile looks evenly bright!

Understanding the Cost of Veneers

Are you unhappy with your smile? If so, you’re probably thinking about getting veneers in San Marcos. However, before making a final decision, it only makes sense that you want to know how much the treatment will cost. It’s a crucial factor that’ll help you determine whether or not this cosmetic solution is right for you. Even though veneers are an excellent option (especially if you want a movie-star smile!), it’s incredibly important that you explore different services to narrow down the perfect one.

Cost vs. Cosmetic Dentistry: What’s Right for Me?

Do you have your heart set on getting veneers in San Marcos? Before moving forward with treatment, you must survey all your available choices. Many other cosmetic services can help you achieve stunning results at different price points, including:

  • Dental Bonding – If you have a minor stain, chip, or gap in your smile, this might be the ideal solution for you. In as little as one hour, Dr. Howard can mask your dental imperfections using composite resin and make you look flawless! Although this option is affordable and quick, it will need to be redone every few years.
  • Teeth Whitening – There are many reasons why teeth stain or get discolored over time. Luckily, a professional whitening treatment can quickly change the color of your smile. It’s much cheaper than other cosmetic solutions, but it can’t alter the shape or position of your teeth. If those are changes you want to make, then you may want to consider another option.
  • Veneers – This might be more expensive than other treatments, but it’s the easiest way to completely transform your pearly whites. Veneers can change every aspect of your smile (i.e., color, shape, position) all at once. What’s more, you can enjoy your stunning results for well over a decade with proper care and maintenance!

How to Make Veneers Affordable

Since veneers are considered a form of cosmetic dentistry, they’re generally not covered by dental insurance. That means you’ll need to find an alternative way to pay for your treatment as it’s not viewed as medically necessary. Luckily, we’ve got you covered. If you’re not insured, we can help you find out if you qualify for third-party financing through CareCredit. With this option, you can split up the total cost of veneers in San Marcos into smaller, budget-friendly installments. There are several low-to-interest plans to choose from, meaning you’re guaranteed to find something that works best with your financial situation!

Are you interested in revamping your smile with veneers in San Marcos? Contact our office and schedule a consultation with Dr. Howard today! Once we determine whether or not this option is right for you, we’ll create a treatment plan that works with your budget and do everything we can to keep your total expenses as low as possible!
