Porcelain veneers are strong, custom-formed, natural-looking covers that are bonded to the surface of teeth. They look just like perfectly healthy and natural teeth. Veneers are often used to repair chipped, decayed or stained teeth and to reshape teeth and close gaps. Veneers are sometimes used instead of crowns for patients looking for a simple cosmetic restoration. To prepare the tooth, a minimal amount of enamel is ground down to accommodate the veneer. This procedure is minimally invasive, even less so than a typical filling.
What are the advantages of same-day veneers?
Before the technology came around, getting veneers always took 2 to 3 appointments and required awkward temporary veneers. Thanks to new techniques and equipment, getting veneers is easier than ever.

Same-day veneer treatment
Your personalized treatment plan
Before we get started we’d like to hear from you how and why you would like to improve your tooth or teeth. We want to ensure veneers are the best option for you and will help you achieve your smile goals. We may recommend a treatment plan before veneers are done, to ensure your gums are as healthy as possible and your veneers have a clean and healthy foundation.
Preparing your teeth
To make space for your veneer, a thin layer of enamel is removed from the front of your tooth. We numb the area before we start working and the amount of enamel removed is very minimal. Next, we will take a highly accurate digital scan of your treated tooth or teeth. No more messy impressions or huge trays in your mouth!
Creating and placing Veneers
The 3D scan will be used to make a digital model of your veneers and they will be milled right on location in our special in-house machine. If you only have one or two veneers, this whole process can be completed in one appointment. Your new veneers will be permanently bonded to your teeth.
Cost of same-day veneers in Long Valley
The out-of-pocket cost for a dental veneer can vary widely from patient to patient. With a typical insurance plan, a single veneer averages out to about $600 to $800+. Without insurance, a reasonable ball-park figure for a veneer would be about $1100 to $1300 and up.
So what goes into determining the cost of veneers?
- The number of veneers that are needed.
- The complexity of the procedure.
- Your vision for your smile.
- Supplies and equipment that are required for your specific treatment plan.

Dr. Jay and Dr. Janice are very professional and very caring, as is the entire staff, in the treatment of their patients. A visit to their practice is like visiting friends. I highly recommend their
excellent dental services.
They truly stand by their mission/motto of treating everyone as if they're family! I came to the doctors (having never seen them before) with a dental emergency on a holiday weekend and they were kind enough to fit me in for an emergency extraction. Ester at the front desk is also extremely kind hearted and made the visit that much more pleasant. There aren't enough words to explain my gratitude! Did I mention Dr. Jay is not only a dentist, but a certified orthodontist! And they have great high tech 3D scanning equipment.
One 4th of July I woke up with a terrible toothache. Dr. Jay opened the office just to accommodate me! Me, my daughter and son-in-law have been going ever since! Both the front desk team members and dentists are very kind and extremely talented at what they do! Thank you Cazes Dentistry!
