What Are Veneers?

A veneer is a thin porcelain slip that covers a damaged or discolored tooth. Each veneer is custom-made to the contours of your tooth, instantly improving the look and quality of your smile. Because veneers are made to match the color of your enamel, no one will be able to tell that you have had a veneer procedure!

What Is The Procedure For Fitting Veneers?

You can expect to visit the dentist at least twice for your veneers. During your first appointment, your teeth will be prepared by removing a small amount of your surface enamel to ensure a proper fit for your veneer. Next, an impression of your tooth will be taken to send the laboratory to make your veneer. You will be fitted with a temporary veneer in the meantime.

On your next visit, your new veneers will be bonded to your teeth with a special type of dental cement and cured to ensure a secure fit. Finally, your dentist will clean and polish your veneer to ensure you leave happy, confident, and smiling.

Am I A Candidate For Veneers?

You may be the perfect candidate for veneers if you have any teeth that are seriously stained, crooked, chipped, or irregularly spaced. However, veneers are a permanent solution because fitting them involves removing part of your surface enamel, so be sure to schedule a consultation with our team to determine if veneers are right for you.

Are Veneers Safe?

Getting fitted with veneers is a very safe and easy procedure. After they have been fitted, there is a small chance that they may become cracked, chipped, or dislodged. However, the risks of these outcomes are slight. There is also a chance that your teeth may become more sensitive to heat and cold due to the enamel that is removed. Be sure to discuss all your questions and concerns with our team.

How Long Do Veneers Last?

You can expect your veneers to last at least seven years and up to 15. Because the surface of your teeth is permanently altered when veneers are fitted, you will need to replace them eventually.

How Do I Care For My Veneers?

Fortunately, veneers do not require any special care beyond good dental hygiene. Be sure to brush your teeth twice a day and floss and rinse with mouthwash at least once a day.
