How Many Veneers Should I Get?

Posted in Veneers

Dental veneers are an excellent choice when you want to change your entire smile for the better. They help your teeth look whiter, straighter, fuller, and everything you want them to. But there’s still one important question – how many veneers should you actually get?

Veneers are typically completed in pairs. That is, you typically would not have one veneer placed over one problematic tooth. Instead, you would have a veneer mirror that tooth on the tooth adjacent to it. Why? Because otherwise a single veneer would stand out from the rest of the teeth and might not give you the natural aesthetics that you’re hoping for.

In most cases, veneers are done in sets of 6 or 8 at a time. This will depend on how wide your smile is and how many teeth you desire to change. They may or may not also be recommended on the lower front teeth as well. During a smile consultation, your cosmetic dentist can talk to you about which teeth would require veneers and how fewer or more would change those results. Some people do perfectly well with 6 dental veneers, while others have as many as 12 or more.

The number of veneers that you and your dentist decide on will be based on your personal goals and needs. With cosmetic dentistry, veneers can be used on their own or in combination with other types of treatment at the same time. There’s literally something for everyone! If you’ve put off talking to your dentist about veneers because you think they aren’t an option for you – it’s time to think again.
