Online patient registration can improve the patient experience, increase practice efficiency, and reduce the management burden on your staff.

Here’s how:

Improving the patient experience

Most patients are provided a clipboard stacked with paperwork when they walk into the average dental office. Filling out all of that paperwork right before the appointment progress the amount of time spent at the office, and the amount of time devoted to their dental appointment in an already busy day.

With online patient registration, your patients receive a link in an appointment confirmation email stating them to a secure online form they can complete at home, at their convenience. The information they provide demographics, health history, and insurance which is then transmitted to the new patient record in your practice management software automatically when they submit the form.

It would be natural, with everything going on, to return to what you were doing for marketing before the pandemic; running the same internal initiatives and resuming whatever external efforts you had in place. Will this work? While we don’t know for sure, considering patients may be hesitant to return to care quickly, the possibility of a resurgence of the virus, and the fact that dental practices will be competing for patients – signals a change to your approach may be in order. 

When the patient reaches the office for their appointment, they can go straight to the operatory once they’ve checked in because you already have all of their information in the patient record saved. This means they can be on their way much more quickly than when they had to spend 20 minutes at the beginning of each appointment filling out paper forms in your waiting area.

Increasing practice efficiency and reducing the administrative burden

If your patients submit an online registration form ahead of time, you’ve taken a task off of the front desk’s plate, comforting your team to do other important things like help a patient schedule a follow-up appointment before they exit.

What’s more important is, electronic forms can reduce data entry errors related to transcription. Anyone who has worked the front desk knows that patient handwriting can be difficult to read at times, and even the best employees reading perfectly legible handwriting can make the occasional typo when entering information from paper forms into your dental practice management software. 

Electronic forms don’t eliminate data entry errors completely; they're still recording inputs from humans, and no one is perfect, but they can certainly help reduce the potential for error.

The benefits are clear, but not all dental practice management software is created equal. Most dental practices in the U.S. are still running on outdated software, which doesn’t allow for online patient-facing features like patient registration. Some creative practices have managed to build a workaround using custom-built online cloud forms, but those typically require manual upload into the practice management software, which doesn’t go all the way in reducing the administrative burden on staff as well.

To conclude the most important need of the moment for any business is to maximum convert the process online.

How to Revamp Your Dental Practice Post Pandemic

It would be natural, with everything going on, to return to what you were doing for marketing before the pandemic; running the same internal initiatives and resuming whatever external efforts you had in place. Will this work? 

While we don’t know for sure, considering patients may be hesitant to return to care quickly, the possibility of a resurgence of the virus, and the fact that dental practices will be competing for patients – signals a change to your approach may be in order. Even if your practice has pent up demand now – marketing is vital to what happens in your practice 3-6 months from now. Creating a road map for your practice’s marketing efforts will help you implement recommendations to ensure your practice stays on track.

Plan Your Work and Work Your Plan

We encourage you to have an overarching strategy for your approach. This is not the time for disjointed efforts. Consistent messaging is key.

Who Is Your Target Audience?

Once you know your audience, craft content that is consistent with what they want to know. Appealing to your overall community? You might want to show your social responsibility as a dental practice and business. Appealing to current patients? Consider content about safety and cleanliness. Looking for new patients? Discuss convenient hours, virtual consultations, safety procedures, and readiness to serve.

As part of your plan, consider:

  • What are your business growth goals for the rest of 2020?
  • Re-visiting your marketing budget for 2020 
  • What marketing already exists that you can leverage?
  • Outlining the new initiatives you want to focus on
  • Measuring your results
  • Re-evaluating your efforts quarterly

 

You should have an external and an internal focus to your marketing efforts – all sharing consistent messaging, designed for your target audience, all linked so you are marketing smarter and using resources wisely.

 External Marketing

1.  Website

Your website is a powerful platform that forms the bedrock of your marketing efforts. All other marketing efforts should lead a patient and prospective patient back to your site. Ensure this by:

 

  • Updating your site, if it is not responsive or loads slowly. Prospective patients will move on to the next practice. According to StatisticBrain.com, website users’ attention spans lie somewhere around 8 seconds.
  • Maintain or enhance SEO efforts to keep your organic search optimization high. 
  • Consider adding a Safety page to your site; detail what your practice is doing to keep patients safe.
  • Add an FAQ page spotlighting hot buttons for patients right now: convenient practice hours, teledentistry offering, your membership plan, payment options, and treatment to support a job search like whitening.
  • Make necessary changes to ensure easy navigation to find your office hours, phone number means to schedule and a bio for the doctor(s)

 2. Social Media

  • Post 1-3 times per week on the top two platforms in dental – Facebook and Instagram. Keep these posts positive, real, personal, forward-looking, and fun.
  • When you post, be sure to include your branded hashtag and a “follow us on” any other platforms the practice is on.
  • Social distancing has prompted a higher social media engagement from people searching for social connections. Consider boosting your Facebook posts. Boosted posts are an inexpensive way to capitalize on the higher-than-average social engagement during this time. 

 

Reputation Management

Update review sites (Google, Yelp, HealthGrades, and Facebook) with open announcements, stressing steps you have taken to keep patients safe. (The opportunity to complete a review on Google was turned back on at the end of April.)

  • Ask for reviews. A recent survey showed that almost 70 percent of customers are willing to provide feedback when requested. 
  • Put direct links to your feedback profiles in multiple places, for example, in a thank you or follow-up email.
  • Focus on your average ratings (4.5 and above is key), getting recent reviews, and getting more reviews.
  • Respond to reviews, positive, neutral, and negative. Prospective patients need to hear the voice of the practice as well as the reviewer. Keep responses to negative reviews short by inviting the patient to call in, so you can help resolve their issues, while respecting HIPAA laws

 

Internal Marketing

While marketing efforts often focus on gaining new patients, some of your current patients could be considering a change in dentist due to a change in benefits, job, or perceived lack of care or safety measures from your practice during the pandemic. Be proactive and be sure to reconnect with current patients. They are the most reliable revenue source for you right now.

1. Connect with Patients

Call or email your patients personally, to connect. This will leave a lasting impression. If you have a large patient base, contact those with outstanding treatment first, long-term patients next, followed by the remaining patient base.

  • If you are unable to call, connect via email and text through your patient connection software. Messages ending in “we are looking forward to seeing you again; call for an appointment” will leave your patient feel cared for.
  • You may have postponed community events. Take this opportunity to test digital alternatives to stay in front of current patients, referring dentists, and community groups.
  • Email newsletters – This format has a 25-30% open rate right now.1 Constant Contact or Mailchimp are easy and inexpensive online marketing platforms to use.
  • A: Ask for Referrals
  • Now more than ever, your entire team needs to be personally asking for referrals.
  • Carve out time at a team meeting to share times and ways to ask.
  • When a patient compliments the office… “Thank you. We really appreciate your feedback. We are accepting new patients, so if you have a friend or family member who’s looking for a new dentist, we would love to see them.”
  • Send a hand-written thank you note to patients who have referred to you.

 

2. Patient Experience

Future referrals depend on creating a patient experience that leaves patients feeling as though they are well cared for by skilled, caring professionals. Review your patient experience and make any needed changes. Solicit suggestions from your team, review other practices’ websites and social media for ideas.

Conclusion

Above all, consistent focus on your marketing efforts and consistent messaging should empower your practice to not only rebound but slingshot to greater success. If you’d like professional support with your marketing, we have vetted referral sources. The Practice Support Team will be standing by to support you.

Innovation for Effective Care

Greater adherence to recommended care, better clinical care, and health care quality outcomes are associated with positive patient care experiences. It applies to all forms of health care including dental. A patient should have access to dental care when it is most needed. In that way, the patient scheduling process gains importance as it contributes to patient experience and overall satisfaction. Patients will stick on to a dental practice only when they get prompt appointments and needn't have to wait for long periods. Otherwise, it will lead to negative responses and reduced revenue.

The handling of patient scheduling has a direct impact on the overall performance of a practice. A hassle-free patient appointment process boosts the reputation and helps the practice gain more patients through the reference. Technology tools can be used to make scheduling an easy and smooth process for the patients.

  • Online scheduling: Patients should be provided with the facility to book their dental appointments online. It helps them choose the most convenient time for consultation. Online booking can be either through your patient portal or through a mobile app. As all the patients won't be using an online booking facility, the practice staff has to make sure that online appointments are synchronized with appointments booked offline, i.e, through phone or in person.
  • Digital intake form: Online booking can be accompanied by a pre-check-in facility to fill in details like patient health history, allergies, medications, insurance, and method of payment, etc. A digital intake form for the patient to key in all these details is a must in a comprehensive care system. This will considerably reduce the waiting time while the in-office visit happens.
  • Appointment reminders: Patients need to be reminded of their scheduled appointments from time to time. For this pre-scheduled auto-reminder systems can be used to send out appointment reminders to patients via text or email. This system ensures the presence of the patient for consultation as per schedule eliminating no-shows. These no-shows have several adverse implications on a dental practice including poorer health outcomes for patients and disruption in your organizational workflow. Auto-reminder systems save precious time your staff otherwise have spent manually notifying patients through text or call.
  • Automated recalling: All patients who require periodic appointments may not reschedule. For patients who require recurring or regular appointments, automated recalling systems are great. This can also be used to make the best out of healthcare-focused national observances by reaching out to patients to get their various screenings done, with some waivers and offers. This is done by sending automated emails and text to your patient base.

A practice needs to develop a scheduling policy that contains all the details like what happens with a missed appointment, canceling less than 24 hours prior, no-show fees if any, etc. The policy should be communicated to the patients in advance. The staff at the dental office need to be given advanced training to use and manage the technology used. The staff should also be thorough about the policies implemented so that they can explain it to the patients easily.

Recent studies have found that 44% of patients prefer online scheduling and paperless onboarding. This has encouraged dental practices to go for technological innovations that will boost their patient experience. The CS Enterprise from CareStack is one such example, purpose-built for dental enterprises to maximize efficiency through centralization, automation, and analytics. It is an enterprise-grade cloud-based practice management software with capabilities for centralization that will help to achieve the full potential inherent in scale. Its usage among practices results in lower no-show rates, increased capacity to see patients, better patient adherence, and above all higher revenue.

How choosing the right provider impacts your practice

It’s a simple fact: if you like your dentist and the office staff, you are more likely to return for your check-ups, follow their advice and keep your pleasant smile. It’s very important that you select a dentist that you trust. This person will be your ally in creating a healthy mouth that will let you enjoy everything from eating your favorite foods to laughing with your friends for years to come.

What problems are you solving?

It’s a basic but necessary question to ask what am I going to use this software for? Dental software solutions provide many tools to help professionals with necessary administrative tasks. Features may include:

  • Appointment scheduling and reminders
  • Recall systems
  • Document management
  • Clinical applications
  • Patient relationship management
  • Insurance and government coverage support
  • Compliance
  • Reporting and analytics
  • Marketing

Each dental software system offers different features. Assessing your practice’s needs is the first step toward choosing the software that can best improve patient experience and business growth.

2. Is it easy to use?

Most employees expect an understanding  and easy-to-use platform in their workspace. All staff in the front and back offices should be trained easily on how to use the technology smoothly.

When choosing software, let all stakeholders take part in a demo if possible. Listen to everyone’s opinions on whether they had an enjoyable experience using the software. If all stakeholders had a pleasant time adjusting to the new solution, there are likely to be fewer frustrations with it down the road. Happy staff means happy patients. It’s a win-win.

3. What is the cost?

When it comes to investing in new or updated software, one of the most important factors is cost. Many factors can affect the cost of dental solutions, including whether it’s server or cloud-based, its functionality, its updates and scalability, the security, and whether or not it offers continued support.

When determining how much you’re willing to spend on a new platform, consider what value this product will bring to your practice. Spending more on a high-quality platform might speed up income and reduce loss, which will improve your overall return on investment.

4. How are training and support?

Let’s face it, as a dental practitioner, you didn’t go to school for information technology development. Dental management solutions have many advanced features that can help you grow your practice, but they’re only useful if you know how to use them.

Many modern dental systems are software as a service (SaaS) products. When you pay for a SaaS product, your customer experience does not end when you install the software. You can expect continued support, training, analysis and consultation on how to best use the software for your business. Whether you’re a  family operated clinic or an enterprise level network, dental IT experts can guide you and enrich your practice.

5. Do your peers trust this product?

The most proven way to select a trustworthy software is to learn from your peers. Reading marketing materials will provide you with insights on what a product does, but your peers can tell you honestly how dental software has impacted their businesses. Verified user reviews are a great way to learn from other dental professionals about the most effective and beneficial technologies available. If you have queries or doubts about a dental SaaS product, a salesperson will usually give you biased information, but fellow dental professionals will tell you the truth.

There are a lot of factors to consider when choosing the right provider for your practice. It may feel like a huge investment of staff time to understand the priority needs of your practice. However, in the end, all your hard work can help ensure you’ve selected the right technology for you.

When a dental practice needs an additional team member and you have determined that you need to hire another employee there are so many factors aligned along the same. This decision is  made for one of two reasons:

  1. Your ability to increase production, provide better service for patients, or support the current providers in the practice is hindered because you don’t have enough team members to cover.
  2. You have a demand for a specific skill that is not present in your existing team, for example, PDA or treatment coordinator.

When you hire someone, you need to do it correctly and seriously, which means doing it in the most cost-effective and time-efficient manner possible. Hiring a new employee may seem like a fairly straightforward endeavor, but it’s important not to decide before you carefully prepare. 

Factors to Improve Employees Quality in  Dental Practice

While there are never any guarantees that the person you hire will work out, there are some steps you can take to attract the best candidates and precautions you can take to improve your chances of making a good decision.

 

Determining what you need

Before you start the process of hiring somebody for a new vacancy, you must know what you’re looking for. The more completely you understand the position for which you’ll be interviewing, the better you’ll be able to evaluate applicants and choose the apt ones for consideration. 

Job descriptions and specifications are two tools that will help a great deal in evaluating all the potential candidates. A job description is a written record of the responsibilities of a respective job. It indicates the qualifications required for the position and outlines how the job is relevant to others in the practice. In a clean, concise manner, the job description should indicate position title, salary or compensation method, area that person will work in, to whom they are accountable, their work schedule, a summary of the job, major responsibilities, and qualifications needed for it.

 

The job description should be organized in such a way that it indicates not only the responsibilities but also the vitality of these responsibilities. Within the categories mentioned above, including such information as the following examples computer experience required working conditions, and terms of employment.

If the position is new, the job description will help you clarify what the position demands and the necessary qualifications. If you’re filling a position that ‘s been vacated, and if it’s possible to do so, ask the departing employee to update the entire job description. Job descriptions can become quickly outdated. A former employee may also help you review the job description to determine if activities being performed still add value to the practice.

It is important to be able to answer these questions:

  • What is the purpose of the job?
  • What day-to-day duties are performed?
  • What other duties are performed?
  • How is the position supervised?
  • How much or how little control is exercised over this position?
  • What instruments, computers, or equipment must be used?
  • What external or internal contacts are required?
  • What verbal, numerical, or computer skills are necessary?

Determining the requirements of the position

When you’re deciding on the hiring criteria, you’ll need to examine experience, education, intelligence, and personality requirements. By establishing these requirements objectively by making use of the job analysis, job descriptions, and job specifications, you will eliminate bias that might be caused by poor values, and you’ll be able to look objectively at the traits tied to the performance of the job.

As you define selection criteria, you will need to look at the job performance of the former employee and isolate a few characteristics that have the most impact on successful job performance.

Before you start your search for qualified applicants, consider education, experience, physical requirements, and personality requirements. Be conscious that each requirement you identify is specifically job-related. This can help prevent potential problems later. Don’t make these job determinations in a vacuum. Ask the other team members for their perspective.

Managing overdue payments can be a huge challenge for dental practices. So it's important for dental providers to have an effective patient payment collection strategy in order to reduce bad debt and protect their practice’s financial well-being. An effective way to drive timely patient payments is to send reminders via automated text communications.

Text to pay is a payment solution that allows consumers to make a payment via texting on their smartphones. This is a huge opportunity for dental providers to start incorporating text reminders into their patient payment collection strategy leveraging the same automated technology that dental providers use to send appointment reminders. 

Benefits: Convenience, Speed & Personalization

Empower your patients with the easiest way to pay their balances so that your dental practice can collect more payments in less time; improving the revenue generated!

Cementing an Online Presence

It is essential that your practice has an online presence in all major social media sites like Google, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. Having accounts on these sites will ensure maximum reach and cater to audiences that are confined to some sites.

Search Engine Optimization

Needless to say, you must have a website for your practice as a way of verification and to obtain more information. SEO is a set of techniques used to optimize your website and as a result, end up higher in search results. You could hire an SEO specialist or contact an SEO company to do it for you.

Managing Online Reviews

The best way anyone online will know about you is by reviews on review sites like Yelp and rateMDS. Ensuring that you have good reviews will encourage more patients to choose your dental practice over others. As with anything else, there may be negative reviews, but rather than trying to get those off the site, we suggest responding to them positively and taking them as constructive criticism.

Using Social Media to Understand Patient Requirements

Having a social presence is only the start. Creating and posting relevant materials online regularly facilitates more reach. The reach and acceptance of each post can be monitored using the analytics features available. Maintaining a consistent and pleasant attitude with your audience will boost your ratings.

Having an Active Blog

This may seem odd but having a regularly updated blog goes a long way in improving your presence online. Not only does it show off passion towards the field, willingness to share knowledge and it can also feature practices and services your practice offers. It also invites people to suggest and discuss between themselves the need for proper dental care.

Running Email and Social Campaigns

In order to let your current customers and viable prospects know about the various services you offer, you could use online promotional and email campaigns. All of these can contain reviews and testimonials of satisfied customers from your practice.

Local PR and Partnerships

Reaching out and having tie-ups with community clubs to provide periodic checkups for its members and their families will help spread the news of your practice and help get more clients.

Social Responsibility

Being part of charities and local causes can help your dental practice earn a good reputation and gain value among the residents of the community. It serves the purpose of reputation boosting and the act of giving back to society. Simply put, create a genuine consistent presence that upholds the morals and values of your dental practice.

Utilizing teledentistry to beat COVID-19

The past few weeks have been difficult for all of us. The dental industry has also been affected extensively by this, with most of the practices forced to close its doors and the staff asked to stay at home. We are seeing instances where businesses are resorting to extreme measures such as laying off staff or even permanently shutting down practices due to lack of business. Given the circumstances, the best way dental practices can keep functioning and provide services is through the proper utilization of technology and careful management of business finances. This is where teledentistry comes in.

What is teledentistry?

Telemedicine and in extension, Teledentistry, have been around for quite a while. It is primarily used for situations where patients do not have access to dental services easily, like rural areas (which amounts to almost 20% of Americans). Teledentistry refers to the utilization of technologies like live video conferencing and online portals to run “Tele-appointments”, where dentists are consulted by patients over a live video channel.

During this virtual appointment, the dentist and the accompanying treatment coordinator provides the patient with necessary dental advice and sets up an emergency in-person appointment if necessary.

In some cases, patients and dentists may not be able to meet each other online in real-time. In such situations patients can record their queries, the dentists can view them later and get back with solutions.

What are the benefits of using Teledentistry?

Teledentistry can make patients feel safer as they can get the dentist’s services sitting in the safety of their homes. As they do not meet the dentists or travel to the practice they will have nothing to worry about catching an unwanted infection. Even if a patient needs an emergency in-person appointment, all the follow up can still happen online.

Dentists can also save the money they spend on maintaining a large office if they can use teleconsultations. Not to mention the travel cost savings both to the dentist and the patient.

How can your dental practice offer Tele-Appointments?

Currently, HIPAA regulations have been modified to allow dentists and patients to use non-public facing technologies like Apple FaceTime, Facebook Messenger video chat, Google Hangouts video or Skype for tele-appointments. According to the current rules, they can continue to use these technologies till the lockdown is over. But dentists should avoid using public-facing technologies like Facebook Live, Twitch and TikTok. Further, the allowed platforms are not completely safe, so the dentists must inform the patients about privacy risks and use encryption wherever possible.

Tele-appointments and Claim Reimbursements

Patients do not have anything to worry about how to pay for teledentistry appointments. This is because most insurance carriers have announced they will cover the costs if patients seek teledentistry services during the lockdown phase. All that dentists and patients need to do is ensure the special codes, D9995 (synchronous) and D9996 (asynchronous), are specified while submitting the claims.

Offering Teledentistry options to your patients

Any dentist can offer tele-appointments but if a dental practice has an automated practice management system then it can offer teledentistry way more safely. Patients may be worried about data safety while using common online portals for tele-appointments and may even avoid using it altogether. But if you have a secure, HIPAA compliant, interactive teledentistry product to offer them, they are more likely to choose you.

Taking your dental practice one step further

Several cutting-edge dental practice management software (PMS) like CareStack offers just that. With CareStack, dentists and patients can meet on extremely safe, cloud-based encrypted platforms and there will be no data leak worries. Also, CareStack has an inbuilt audio and video interface that will allow dentists to securely meet their patients synchronously (real-time) or asynchronously (recorded and forwarded), do an online triage, exchange clinical documents like x-rays or test reports and prescribe medicines online.

Morning sickness and nausea increase acid production in your mouth, which can damage the outer protective layer of teeth. Brushing before going to bed will remove the excess acid from your mouth. 

 

Remember to floss 

Flossing is important for your good dental health. Poor dental health during pregnancy can risk the health of the baby. Many studies have linked poor dental health to premature birth and low birth weight in babies. Dental Clinics in Udaipur advice their patients to floss regularly, as flossing helps in removing plaque and food stuck between your teeth. Flossing also helps in clearing the space between teeth where a toothbrush cannot reach. Flossing also prevents tooth decay and gum diseases. 

 

Visit the Dentist regularly 

It is important to visit the dentist regularly as it will help you to keep a check on your dental health. Normally a person should visit the dentist twice or thrice a year.

Your Yonkers cosmetic dentists offers dental veneers on teeth in a variety of options, ranging from press-on veneers to porcelain, resin and prepless veneers. Veneers on teeth can correct many cosmetic issues. Veneers for crooked front teeth make your smile shine again. And small teeth veneers help make small teeth in adults look more normal. In fact, veneers for small teeth are common because they make teeth longer. While dental veneer costs remain relatively high, what’s it worth to you to have a great smile?

beautiful smile makes all the difference when it comes to your self-confidence. Small teeth in adults, gaps in your teeth or tooth discoloration all compromise the look of your smile. Your Yonkers cosmetic dentist, open on Saturday and Sunday, can help you determine if veneers are the right choice for you.

Veneers on teeth are thin pieces of tooth-colored material that are molded to fit your teeth. The goal of dental veneers is to change the size, color or shape of your teeth for a more even look. Veneers can enhance:

  • Teeth that are discolored from root canals, fillings 
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Irregular teeth or small teeth in adults
  • Teeth with gaps
  • Any other dental issues that cause a lack of confidence

Different Kinds of Veneers on Teeth

Depending on your dental needs and financial resources, different kinds of veneers are available, including:

  • Porcelain veneers. The most expensive, but most natural-looking material makes the best veneers for crooked front teeth. They’re custom-made for size and shade, and they’re quite durable. Of course, your dental veneer costs increase for this level of quality.
  • Composite veneers. These veneers are made from the non-metallic material used to fill cavities. Composites usually fix minor chips and gaps or to make teeth longer. They aren’t quite as expensive, but they’re not as durable either.
  • Instant veneers. These are premade and work well as small teeth veneers or for broken teeth. Because they’re premade, the dental veneer costs are lower, but an exact shade match isn’t always possible.
  • Removable veneers. The newest style of veneers on teeth is a hybrid between porcelain and instant. They are custom made, but thinner, so they can be removed if needed. While these veneers are the less expensive, they may not be a suitable long-term solution.

Placement of Veneers on Teeth

The procedure for veneers is relatively quick and usually accomplished in two visits. After discussing your needs and desires regarding your smile, your Sunday dentist in the Yonkers takes X-rays and impressions of your teeth. The dental lab needs between two and four weeks to make your veneers. Temporary veneers may be applied while you’re waiting, especially if your dentist removes a small amount of enamel for placing the veneers. Removing half a millimeter to a millimeter of enamel is far less than would be removed for a dental crown or filling.

When your new veneers are ready, you return to the dentist, open on Saturday even, to have your teeth cleaned, polished, and etched for proper bonding of the veneers. Your dentist cements the veneers into place using an ultraviolet light to speed up the bonding process. A follow-up visit may be necessary to check that the bond is secure and your gums are handling the veneers well.

Pros and Cons of Veneers on Teeth

Whether you’re looking for veneers for crooked front teeth, veneers for small teeth or veneers to improve your smile, you can take advantage of the benefits of this procedure, such as:

  • Veneers, especially ones made of porcelain, appear realistic. They have the same optical qualities of natural teeth.
  • Porcelain and most composites are stain-resistant and keep their color.
  • Veneers on teeth are relatively durable and can last from seven to 15 years.
  • With a brighter, more even smile, your appearance improves with your confidence.
  • Veneers require no special after care; just brush and floss.

As with any dental procedure, you should be aware of the disadvantages, including:

  • Veneers on teeth are artificial and not a natural solution.
  • Dental veneer costs may be prohibitive for some individuals at $1,000 to $2,000 per tooth. Dental veneer costs aren’t usually covered by dental insurance.
  • Though relatively durable, veneers can chip or break. If that happens, you must completely replace them; they can’t be fixed. If you grind your teeth, bite your nails or chew ice, your Yonkers dentist may not recommend veneers.
  • Because veneers require some removal of enamel, getting them is a permanent decision.
  • Some people have experienced an increase in tooth sensitivity because of the enamel loss.
  • Since your teeth can still decay, veneers may not be your best option if you have a history of weak enamel, gum disease or tooth decay.

Veneers on teeth can perfect your smile, correct for small teeth in adults, make teeth longer and brighten the color of your teeth. The realistic appearance of veneers makes them a good choice for many people. Your Yonkers dentist, as a general dentist open on Saturday, helps you make the best choice in terms of dental veneer costs and lifestyle desires.
