What Are Veneers?

What Are Veneers?

Are you looking for a cosmetic dentistry solution to achieve a perfect smile? If so, you may want to consider dental veneers. These affordable restorations will correct the appearance of imperfections in your teeth, leaving you with stunning results in no time!

All About Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are wafer-thin tooth-colored porcelain or composite resin shells that adhere to the front of your teeth to improve the appearance of any imperfections. Veneers correct stained, discolored, chipped, worn, crooked, uneven, misshapen, or gapped teeth. Your new restorations will provide strength and resilience comparable to natural teeth, while instantly delivering your perfect smile!

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are incredibly durable and natural-looking. They typically require less enamel removal than with a dental crown.

To place your porcelain veneers, we will remove a minimal amount of enamel from your teeth to make room for your restorations. Impressions of your teeth will enable our dental lab to custom-make your veneers. We may place temporary veneers to protect your prepared teeth.

During an upcoming visit, we will place your new veneers on your teeth and will check for fit and shape. After making any necessary adjustments, we will bond your new restorations, leaving you with perfect teeth and a dazzling smile!

Composite Resin Veneers

Composite veneers are made from a tooth-colored material that we bond to your teeth. They typically cost less than porcelain veneers and will require less enamel removal. Composite veneers are not as strong and durable as porcelain veneers. However, they are easily repaired if they get damaged.

Placing your composite veneers will typically require one appointment. We will reshape your teeth and then carefully sculpt the composite material, and then we will use a special curing light to harden it and bond it to your teeth. We will smooth and polish your veneers, leaving you with beautiful, natural-looking teeth.

Care After Veneers

Refrain from biting your fingernails or chewing on hard objects to avoid chipping or breaking your new veneers. Make sure to brush and floss daily, and visit us every six months so that we can check on the health of your mouth and restorations.
