Dental Veneers 101
Dental veneers are ultra-thin wafers of porcelain that are custom designed for your smile and permanently bonded to the front side of your teeth. They can be used to cover just one tooth or provide you with a complete smile makeover by covering all of your teeth. Veneers are considered a permanent cosmetic enhancement as they require some modification to your natural teeth.
Frequently Asked Questions
When should I get dental veneers?
Dental veneers can correct a number of esthetic imperfections, including chips, cracks, discoloration, and even minor gaps. During your cosmetic consultation, we’ll go over what you’d like to change about your smile and recommend the most effective treatment.
What’s the dental veneers procedure like?
The dental veneers procedure takes place over a series of appointments. First, we’ll remove a thin layer of enamel and modify your teeth to accommodate the thin shells of porcelain. Then, we’ll take impressions and send them off to a lab where your custom veneers will be created. Once we’ve received the veneers, we’ll inspect their shade and fit and permanently bond them.
How do I care for my dental veneers?
You’ll care for your veneers just as you would your natural teeth—brush at least twice per day, floss daily, and rinse with an alcohol-free mouthwash. They’re non-removable so you don’t have to worry about adding additional steps to your hygiene routine for cleaning. They’re also stain-resistant and extremely durable, so you can still have all of your favorite food and beverages.
