Veneers Q & A

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are incredibly thin “shells” of porcelain that fit directly over the surface of your natural teeth. They are a popular cosmetic option and are commonly used by celebrities and public figures who want to present seemingly perfect smiles to the world. 

Once among the most expensive cosmetic treatment options, advancement in dental technology have made veneers far more affordable. Because veneers can correct a number of different issues with the same treatment, they are also a great value for your investment. 

What kinds of issues can dental veneers correct?

Dental veneers offer the ability to treat multiple issues with the same technique. Some of the cosmetic concerns a great set of veneers can correct include:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Worn down teeth
  • Discoloration that whitening cannot correct
  • Irregularities in the size of teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Minor alignment problems
  • Gapped teeth

As compared to addressing multiple conditions with separate treatments, dental veneers are a great option that can save you time and money. 

What are the steps involved in getting dental veneers? 

If you have existing dental decay or gum disease, treating those conditions is necessary before you move forward with dental veneers. You’ll also have imaging performed to give your provider more information about your teeth and bone tissue. 

On the day of your procedure, you’ll receive medication to eliminate all sensation in the treatment area. Once you’re numb, your practitioner removes a small portion of your natural tooth tissue to make room for the veneers. 

You’ll receive a temporary set of veneers to protect your teeth until your permanent veneers arrive. At that point, you’ll return to have the veneers checked for fit and appearance before being cemented into place. This completes your treatment, and you’ll walk out with your new smile.
