Who Should Get Porcelain Veneers?

Virtually any cosmetic problem can be corrected with dental veneers. They are an excellent option for people who wish to remake their smiles without investing in multiple cosmetic treatments. By simply covering up the imperfect teeth, veneers fix any number of problems, all at once.

These dental imperfections are commonly corrected using veneers:

  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Slightly gapped teeth
  • Misshapen teeth, appearing pointy or too short
  • Stained teeth that haven’t responded to professional teeth whitening

Patients who have functional problems in addition to aesthetic imperfections may be better served by a dental crown. Also called caps, dental crowns completely surround a decayed or damaged tooth to restore its strength and function. Your dentist can help you understand which is the best option for you.

Healthy teeth and gums are a necessary prerequisite of veneers. You will undergo an initial checkup and cleaning with Dr. Russo to ensure your mouth is healthy enough to receive the treatment. Spots of decay and evidence of gum disease should be treated before beginning with veneers.

Can Porcelain Veneers Eliminate the Need for Braces?

In some instances, veneers can save you from having to undergo orthodontic treatment. Minor gaps in the front teeth, or teeth that appear to be off-center do not necessarily need braces — instead, veneers can cover up the problem. Of course, when crowding or serious misalignments are present, crooked teeth are best treated with braces. Fortunately, Dr. Russo also provides Invisalign, a discreet and fast way to straighten your smile.

Procedure for Porcelain Veneers

The veneer treatment is carried out over two visits to Dr. Russo’s dental office. During the first appointment, a plan is put in place and your teeth are prepared for the veneers. Preparation involves removing a small portion of the enamel from the surface of each tooth to allow the veneers to lie flat against the surrounding natural teeth. After preparation, “No goo” digital impressions using iTero are taken and temporary veneers are placed to protect the prepared teeth. In the time between appointments, your veneers are manufactured in a separate lab and sent back to us. You’ll come back to Dr. Russo’s dental office for their final placement once they are ready.

Understanding the Cost of Veneers

Veneers are truly your one-stop shop to fix smile imperfections. However, it’s no secret that they can be a bit pricey! This comprehensive solution may be more expensive than other cosmetic services, but it’s the only option that offers stunning results that completely transform the look of your pearly whites. Read on as we go over important information about the cost of veneers in Orlando, including how they compare to other cosmetic treatments and how to make veneers affordable.

Dr. Russo offers a wide variety of cosmetic dental services at different price points, each accomplishing unique results. Here’s how the cost of some of our most popular cosmetic treatments stacks up against veneers:

  • Teeth Whitening – A professional teeth whitening treatment is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to dramatically improve the appearance of your smile! Naturally, it only changes the color of your teeth, not their shape or size. On the other hand, veneers offer an almost permanent type of teeth whitening, as they can recolor your teeth and resist stains.
  • Direct Bonding – We can use the same material we use to make tooth-colored fillings to repair minor flaws in your teeth, such as chips, cracks, and gaps. This is a much less expensive option than veneers, but it will need to be redone every few years and can only be used for very small issues. Veneers can address larger imperfections than dental bonding, and can last much longer.
  • Invisalign – We’re proud to offer Invisalign to help you get a straighter, healthier smile. This orthodontic treatment costs more time and money than veneers and can be used to treated mild to moderate cases. Veneers cannot fully treat orthodontic problems, but they are called “instant orthodontics” sometimes due to how well they address minor issues!
  • All-Ceramic Dental Crowns – All-ceramic dental crowns encapsulate the entire portion of a tooth above the gumline, allowing them to completely redesign their size, shape, and color. While crowns can accomplish many of the goals of veneers and can sometimes be partially covered by insurance, they require more tooth alternation.
  • Veneers – Veneers are by no means the cheapest cosmetic option available, but they are certainly the most comprehensive. They can quickly and easily transform the entire appearance of one or more teeth in just two easy appointments, giving you a smile you’ll love for many years to come!

Like other cosmetic dental treatments, veneers are not usually covered by dental insurance. However, this doesn’t mean that your dream smile is out of reach! We’ve partnered with CareCredit and Proceed Finance to help make your veneers more affordable. These financing companies offer a range of plans that will allow you to break up the cost of your veneers over the coming months with little to no interest.

Caring for Your Porcelain Veneers

Maintaining your veneers doesn’t require much more than what you are already used to — brushing, flossing, and regular visits to the dentist. However, you should be aware of how certain habits, like nail biting and chewing ice, can put your veneers at risk of breaking. People who play sports or grind their teeth at night should protect their dental veneers with a custom mouth guard.

Veneers offer patients a variety of unique benefits that they won’t be able to enjoy with other services. Primarily, veneers are custom-made to your exact size, shape, and shade specifications, allowing you to get your dream smile. This makes it easy for your cosmetic dentist in Orlando to use veneers to cover a wide range of imperfections, including chips, cracks, gaps, and much more.


Veneers are designed to last for at least seven years, but you can get up to 20 years out of your new smile with proper care. It’s important to maintain a good at-home dental hygiene routine in order to keep your veneers clean. However, it’s also vital to ensure that you wear a mouthguard during sports or physical activity to protect your teeth from damage or injury. Plus, if you are susceptible to nighttime teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, wear a nightguard during sleep to keep your enamel healthy.


The cost of your veneers will vary depending on your teeth. No two smiles are the same, which is why the only way to get a precise estimate is to schedule a consultation with our dental office. Dr. Russo will carefully examine your smile, the condition of your oral health, and the flaws that affect your teeth. Next, he will develop a personalized treatment plan that includes the price of your veneers. It’s important to remember that insurance providers typically do not cover cosmetic dentistry. However, this will all depend on your specific plan.


While unlikely, it is still possible for a veneer to come off of your smile once it’s placed. If this occurs, try not to panic! Find the veneer and store it in a safe place—do NOT try to glue it or put it back on your smile. Next, schedule an appointment for a proper repair from Dr. Russo. Typically, this won’t be painful, but you may experience sensitivity to cold foods or beverages.


We will ensure that you’re numb and comfortable before beginning the process. In smaller cases of two to four veneers, there will be little to no discomfort once the numbness is over. However, slight soreness of the gums is expected if you receive 8 or more veneers. Usually, you can manage this small discomfort with over-the-counter pain medication.
