Veneers Q & A

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are incredibly thin porcelain molds that fit over the visible surfaces of your teeth. They can address many different dental issues at once, making them a versatile treatment option that also offers great value for your investment. 

When you see a public figure or celebrity with a seemingly perfect smile, you’re likely admiring a set of custom dental veneers. Advancements in dental technology have made dental veneers available at a more affordable price.

What kinds of issues can dental veneers correct?

Dental veneers are a popular choice because they can deliver multiple aesthetic benefits through the same treatment. Some of the issues dental veneers can improve include:

  • Minor misalignment
  • Gapped teeth
  • Discoloration
  • Irregularities in tooth shape or size
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Worn down teeth

Veneers are made of porcelain, a durable material that offers a beautiful, natural-looking finished product.

What are the steps in getting dental veneers?

The first step is a face-to-face consultation to determine if dental veneers are the right fit for your needs. Your provider performs a thorough dental exam to learn more about the alignment and structure of your teeth before making suggestions about aesthetic treatment options. 

If veneers are right for you, your practitioner begins by removing a small portion of your natural tooth tissue to make room for the veneers. The next step is gathering a set of digital or physical impressions to send to the dental lab. 

You may receive a set of temporary veneers to wear until your permanent veneers arrive. At this point, you’ll return to the office to have your new veneers checked for fit and shade before being cemented into place. 

With proper care, you can expect to get 10-20 years of wear with a new set of dental veneers. Veneers are considered a permanent treatment because the process involves removing some of your natural enamel. When they eventually need to be replaced you go through the same process outlined here.
