Veneers Q & A

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are a cosmetic treatment that completely covers the visible portion of the treated teeth. Most people only have veneers placed on the teeth you can see when you speak or smile, although it’s possible to place them on any teeth.

Veneers are crafted from high quality porcelain, and before they’re installed, they look like incredibly thin shells shaped like the front portion of your teeth. Once installed, they create a smooth and natural-looking appearance.

Many celebrities and public figures with seemingly perfect smiles are actually benefiting from top quality dental veneers. Thanks to advancements in dental technology, veneers are now more affordable and available than ever before. 

What are some of the aesthetic issues dental veneers can correct?

Dental veneers are a versatile cosmetic treatment that can address many aesthetic concerns. Some issues a great set of custom dental veneers can correct include:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked tooth
  • Discoloration not correctable through teeth whitening
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Unusually shaped teeth
  • Abnormally small teeth

During your consultation, your dentist explains what kind of results you can expect from your treatment. 

What are the steps involved in getting dental veneers?

If you have any existing dental decay or gum disease, addressing those matters before moving forward with dental veneers is important. Your dentist advises you on the timeline for any necessary restorative treatments. 

On the day of your procedure an injection of numbing medication ensures you won’t feel a thing during the visit. Then, your dentist removes a small portion of your natural tooth enamel to make room for the veneers. 

A set of impressions determines the precise size, shape, and alignment of your teeth and guides fabrication of your porcelain veneers. A set of temporary veneers protects your teeth until the new veneers arrive. 

Then, you return to have the veneers checked for fit and appearance before they are cemented into place. You can expect to enjoy 10-15 years of wear with a new set of veneers before you’ll need to have them replaced.
