Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers mimic the natural appearance of your teeth with a very thin layer of porcelain. Each veneer is custom-fitted to your individual teeth, then one of the skilled cosmetic dentists at Cosmetic Dentistry Center bonds them to your existing teeth. Veneers hide defects like stains, cracks, holes, or misshapen teeth. In addition, they help reinforce weak teeth.

Although veneers can be made out of resin composite materials, porcelain is the most stain-resistant material. Porcelain also tends to look more like your natural enamel. A member of the qualified dental team presents your options and helps you select the best type of veneers for your needs.

What is the procedure for getting veneers?

After an initial consultation to discuss the type of veneers that are best for your teeth and the results you hope to achieve, you come back for another appointment. Then, one of the skilled cosmetic dental experts shapes your existing teeth to prepare them for the veneers by removing a tiny amount of enamel from the surface. After your teeth have been prepared, your dental practitioner takes a mold of your teeth and sends it to the lab, where technicians make your custom veneers.

You come back to have the finished veneers fitted to each tooth. Your teeth are cleaned and etched to prepare them for the bonding process. A dental expert then applies a unique adhesive and light source which makes the cement bond securely to the porcelain. Voila! Once the cement dries, you have a new and upgraded smile!

What are the advantages of dental veneers?

Veneers offer a natural-looking solution for broken, crooked, or misshapen teeth. Also, they provide the following benefits:

  • Resistance to stains
  • Well-tolerated by your gums
  • Ability to lighten darker teeth, so they appear whiter
  • Aesthetically pleasing with minimal dental work
  • Reinforce weak teeth
  • Cheaper than other dental treatments such as crowns
