Da Vinci Veneers

Da Vinci Veneers are an ultra-thin shell of tooth-colored porcelain or composite that is cemented over the facial surfaces of the teeth to correct dental issues. The procedure is painless and very little alteration is done in order to fit the veneers over the teeth.The procedure begins with the preparation of the patient's teeth and then an impression (mold) of the teeth is made and sent to the laboratory for the manufacturing of the new veneers. This may take one to two weeks. Once the veneers have been manufactured, they will be placed on the teeth.

Ideal candidates are healthy individuals who want to mask discoloration, fill gaps between the teeth, hide cracks or cover chips in the teeth. Patients suffering from decay or gum disease, unhealthy oral tissue or health conditions that can impact the process are not good candidates.

The typical cost for a Da Vinci Veneers treatment varies for each patient. In general, the price ranges from $4000-$6500. Factors that can influence the final cost include the number of veneers being manufactured and placed, anesthesia fees and the geographic location of the procedure.

Once the Da Vinci Veneers are in place, there is minimal irritation and discomfort. Patients are advised to maintain proper oral hygiene and avoid eating sticky or hard foods. The veneers can be polished so the risk of staining them with food or drink is greatly reduced. If all instructions are followed diligently, the veneers can last for a period of 10-15 years.
