For many patients at The Ballantyne Center for Dentistry, simple yet effective porcelain dental veneers are all they need for a beautiful smile. We have over 40 years of combined experience helping patients achieve the smile they have always wanted through porcelain dental veneers. And with our sedation dentistry, you simply arrive at the office, lay back, and before you know it, you’re awake and have your new smile. It can be that easy!
Porcelain veneers are perfect for patients who want a ‘new’ smile and do not have structural issues. When the structure of the teeth (roots, etc.) is solid, dental veneers can be placed over existing teeth. If structural issues or problems with foundation of your teeth and gums are a problem you may still be a candidate, although we may have to address these issues first.
We encourage you to visit our smile gallery now to see ‘before and after’ examples of Ballantyne Center for Dentistry patients who have affordably used dental veneers to restore their smile and confidence.
Porcelain veneers are ‘teeth coverings’ made from a very thin lifelike porcelain. We customize each veneer to match your smile. In many instances, a veneer is a perfect choice when you have chipped or cracked teeth or a relatively minor blemish.
How do we create a beautiful smile using porcelain veneers?
In order to provide a lower cost, some laboratories use inferior materials for their porcelain veneers; we routinely fix veneers made from ‘cheaper’ materials. At the Ballantyne Center for Dentistry, we use only the strongest and most proven materials including:
We match the type and brand of veneer to your precise needs. These materials will last longer, look better, and keep you from having to return to the dentist to get these fixed.
Some general dentists provide veneers and related cosmetic services. Some general dentists are excellent at this type of work. However, at the Ballantyne Center for Dentistry, we fix a lot of poor and failing work that general dentists without the appropriate training in background in cosmetic dentistry have performed. Sometimes, dentists may offer what can seem like a ‘low’ price for this type of work. There is usually only one way to offer a low price like this…use inferior materials.
It is important to know exactly what the training and background of your dentist is in the area of bonded porcelain or composite veneers before having any work done. It is CRITICAL that you know what to ask and what to know before moving forward with cosmetic dental work. Not all dentists are "cosmetic" dentists. Make the dentist of your choice prove to you that they can produce the results you are looking for. You may want to download a FREE copy of our book "Open Your Mouth!"
