FAQs - Cosmetic Dentistry: Dental Veneers

Do You Want to Change your Smile?

The list of improvements to your smile is endless. Here are some of the most popular patient requests: 

  • straighten my teeth without braces
  • whiten and brighten my smile
  • close spaces between my teeth
  • fix my broken or chipped teeth

What are Dental Veneers?

Veneers are customized from a thin “shell” of white material (porcelain or resin) and are permanently bonded over the tooth surface. (Like a false fingernail).

How Can Veneers Help My Smile?

While they’re not suitable for every patient, veneers can be your cosmetic alternative for any of the following dental conditions typically found on front teeth:

  • spaces between teeth
  • broken or chipped teeth
  • unattractive, stained or washed out fillings
  • permanently stained or discolored teeth
  • uneven or crooked teeth

How are Veneers Applied?

There are three steps to this procedure:

  1. An impression is taken to make an exact reproduction of your mouth and teeth so that the veneers can be custom made by the laboratory. Minor tooth preparations may be required to create room for the veneer.
  2. To help adhere the veneer to the tooth surface, the tooth is etched with a mild acid solution to slightly roughen the surface.
  3. Veneers are applied individually and permanently bonded to the tooth surface after you have approved shape and color.

What are the Advantages of Choosing Dental Veneers?

  • at one time the only choices available were crowns or resin fillings. Now you have the advantage of a third alternative
  • anesthesia is often not required
  • only a small fraction of the tooth structure (if any) is removed
  • a healthy “natural” smile is attained with little or no discomfort

What Should I Expect?

Veneers can last for years, depending on how well they’re maintained by the patient. Part of maintenance includes regular oral hygiene at home as well as routine cleanings and dental exams to ensure your veneers continue to look as good as new! You should avoid staining foods such as blueberries, cherries, coffee and red wine. Another important thing to remember is to refrain from any harmful oral habits such as nail biting, grinding your teeth, opening bobby pins and chewing on hard objects as they can damage your veneers.
