Digital Smile Design
Thanks to our advanced digital scanning and 3D printing technology, patients can see the expected results of their veneer placement before treatment begins. We’ll produce a digital rendering of what you can expect your “after” to look like while you’re still in the “before” stage, giving you peace of mind that your new smile will appear exactly as you want it to.
Our Veneer Options
Porcelain veneers are custom-made for your teeth out of thin layers of porcelain to improve the appearance, color, shape, and alignment of your teeth. Because porcelain is naturally translucent, it helps to catch the light like real teeth, creating an ultra-natural look.
Composite veneers are made of a resin material that’s affixed directly to your teeth. Like porcelain veneers, they are made to match your existing natural teeth, and use a shorter application process because little to no existing tooth structure needs to be removed first.

Are veneers permanent?
Porcelain veneers are permanent because some tooth enamel has to be removed during teeth preparation with your cosmetic dentist. With proper maintenance and regular exams and cleaning with your dentist, porcelain veneers can last decades. However, some dental restorations may still need to be replaced in your lifetime.
What are the differences between each type of veneer?
Porcelain veneers require 2 stages of treatment, the first stage is to painlessly prepare tooth structure, molds of your teeth will be taken for master ceramicists to make your beautifully hand-crafted porcelain veneers. You will leave your first visit with temporary veneers designed specifically to meet your cosmetic goals and you will have them for 2-3 weeks. During your second visit, the temporary veneers are removed, and the final porcelain veneers are tried on and permanently bonded to your teeth after your approval.
Composite veneers can be completed the same day, depending on the case and your specific cosmetic goals, composite veneers can be done without removing any tooth structure and without any shots. They are hand sculpted by your cosmetic dentist and finished the same day. However, composite veneers do not have the same strength as porcelain veneers, and some composite veneers may need to be repaired in the future.
Will my insurance cover veneers?
The cost of each type of veneer can be different based on how many teeth need to be treated and how complex the treatment is. Historically, cosmetic procedures are not covered under most insurance plans. However, there are many financial payment options available at Jin Dental Aesthetics, and our finance team will do everything we can to meet your cosmetic and financial needs.
