Dental Veneers in Portland, OR

Everyone wants to have an attractive smile with teeth that have no chips or stains. A dentist can easily make your teeth look perfect by creating veneers in their dental laboratory or office. A veneer is a thin cover that is placed on the front of a tooth’s surface to hide abnormalities such as damage from an accident. In addition to improving a tooth’s appearance, a veneer can protect the inner structure of a tooth. Dentists have used veneers on patient’s teeth since the 1920s when cosmetic dentistry was invented to improve the aesthetics of actor’s teeth in movies.

Durable Materials

A veneer cover made in a dental laboratory is applied to a tooth with a durable resin or cement that resists moisture. Because the veneers are sturdy, a patient can live a normal lifestyle while eating a healthy diet of harder foods such as fresh vegetables and fruit. A patient will care for veneers by brushing and flossing their teeth each day. During routine dental visits, a dentist can provide additional care for the veneer covers if there is any damage. Cover veneers can last for many years with the proper care but occasionally require complete replacement due to wear and tear.

Youthful Smiles

Cosmetic dentists also create veneers inside the mouth using composite materials that are placed directly on a tooth’s surface. This building process requires a knowledgeable dentist to create a veneer that looks perfect while protecting a tooth. Patients receiving veneers on their teeth often have higher self-esteem because the devices hide damage. Veneers are useful for creating a normal appearance for a tooth that has an unusual shape due to genetics. As individuals age, veneers can help the smile line look more youthful by filling in spaces between teeth or hiding gum recession.

Average Cost

Applying veneers is a simple process for a cosmetic dentist requiring only one or two sessions for a tooth. The cosmetic dentist must first evaluate a patient’s oral health to make sure there is no gum disease while filling cavities. During a routine examination, a dentist may take medical images of the mouth to look at the condition of dental roots and bone tissue. Veneers are usually applied during a second visit to the cosmetic dentist with the average cost of about $1,700 per tooth.

"Loved the friendly office vibe, and felt very welcomed on my first visit; fantastic hygienist. Using latest technology and will definitely become an on-going patient of Dr. Wang."

Laura

"I actually look forward to visiting Centerport Dental for my cleanings and check-ups. Ann A. is professional, funny, and disarming but most importantly she's gentle (important!!). Dr. Wang has won my allegiance with his professional demeanor yet friendly and funny chats."

Steve

"Need to give huge props to the folks at Centerport Dental and Dr Wang. Had a filling replacement. Could not have gone better. Great use of technology. Expected my entire jaw to be numbed. They were able to localize to the specific tooth. Technology aside, I think there is an artistic component too...teeth need to fit together and that is where I think Dr Wang excels. The follow up call a couple days later to see how things are going was great too."
