What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are small, custom-made pieces of porcelain that we attach to the outward-facing surfaces of the teeth. Their purpose is to hide aesthetic imperfections, thereby creating a flawless smile. They are natural-looking, durable enough to last for many years, and very versatile. They are even highly resistant to stains!

Some of the issues that veneers are often able to address include:

  • Discoloration, including severe and stubborn stains
  • Chips and cracks
  • Asymmetrical teeth
  • Teeth that are too small or short
  • Small gaps between the teeth
  • Minor misalignment
  • And more!

The Process of Getting Veneers

The veneers treatment process requires at least two appointments. At the first appointment, we prepare your teeth by removing a sliver of enamel from them. That might sound a bit scary, but there is no need to feel uneasy. This step is necessary to make sure that the veneers look as natural as possible and adhere well to your teeth. Once your teeth are ready, we take impressions of them.

A dental lab uses the impressions to create your permanent veneers. In the meantime, you get to wear temporary veneers to “test drive” your new look and protect your teeth. When your permanent ones are ready, you return to our office so we can verify that they meet our strict quality standards. Then, we attach them to your teeth.

The Benefits of Veneers

Some of the most outstanding benefits of veneers include:

  • They are durable. With proper care, veneers often last for 15 – 20 years or longer.
  • They are easy to maintain. In many ways, caring for veneers is similar to taking care of natural teeth.
  • They are customizable. If you want your teeth to be a certain color, shape, or size, let us know. Veneers can often be customized to cater to a patient’s preferences.
  • They are versatile. You may choose to get a single veneer to cover one tooth or a whole set of veneers to totally transform your smile.
  • They are highly resistant to stains. Porcelain is non-porous, so pigments tend to slide right off it. Therefore, veneers usually maintain their original color for many years.
