What are Veneers Exactly?
Veneers are thin, yet highly durable shells of porcelain, designed to match the natural shape, shade, and characteristics of your natural teeth. The porcelain materials used for veneers are resilient against the pressures of daily chewing and biting. They are also highly resistant to stains.
These popular cosmetic treatments are minimally invasive and require very little tooth preparation. This helps preserve as much of your natural teeth as possible.
What Issues Can Veneers Fix?
Veneers are placed and cemented to the front surfaces of your teeth. This means they can cover many aesthetic limitations in your smile all at once.
Seven common issues veneers can address include:
- Deep discoloration caused by medication or an injury
- Minor dental chips and cracks
- Gaps between teeth
- Crooked, uneven, and misshapen teeth
- Worn teeth
- Mild bite misalignment
- Teeth that appear small or short
Who Can Get Veneers?
Adults who are in good oral and overall health often make great candidates for veneers. Our dentists first determine whether your teeth and gums are healthy enough to receive veneer treatment. If issues such as tooth decay or gum disease are present in your smile, we will work to treat these complications first.
What is the Process of Getting Veneers?
Veneer treatment involves two separate appointments. Your first appointment will be a detailed consultation, which includes a discussion about your needs, concerns, and goals for treatment. A series of x-rays and impressions are also taken of your smile. These are needed for our team to send to a trusted lab for crafting your customized veneers.
We perform a full exam of your teeth, gums, and smile to make sure you are healthy enough to undergo veneer treatment. After a professional cleaning, our dentists prepare your teeth with a light buffing to create a clean, smooth surface for your veneer placement. While your custom veneers are being created, we provide you with a set of temporaries.
At your second appointment, one of our dentists places your permanent veneers. When finished, you are ready to leave our office with your new dream smile!
Will My Veneers Look Natural?
Absolutely! Veneers are famous for their ability to mimic the unique shape, characteristics, and contours of natural teeth. During your consultation, our dentists take the time to make sure your veneers are designed precisely to your smile, making your treatment results as natural-looking as possible.
How Long Do Veneers Last?
Traditional porcelain veneers can typically last from 10 to 15 years. Good oral hygiene and maintenance can help your veneers to last longer.
How Can I Keep My Veneers Looking Great?
After you have invested your time and money into your new, stunning smile with veneers, it’s only natural you want to keep your results looking beautiful for as long as possible.
Our dentists recommend the following seven tips to help your smile stay stunning:
- Brush your teeth every day and night for at least two minutes each time.
- Choose an electric toothbrush for a thorough brushing.
- Use a non-abrasive toothpaste to help protect your veneers.
- Floss every night and after every meal if possible. Be sure to floss between each tooth!
- Eat a well-balanced diet and drink plenty of water. Limit sugary foods, drinks, and complex carbohydrates.
- Avoid using your teeth as tools.
- Visit us every six months for your routine exam and cleanings.
