Veneers Q&A

What are veneers?

Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells that are custom-made to fit the fronts of your teeth. They’re made from thin layers of porcelain or composite material and are designed to look natural against your natural teeth. Veneers an excellent cosmetic dental treatment to cover and correct:

  • Cracked and chipped teeth
  • Uneven tooth edges
  • Stains
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Pitting
  • Uneven tooth sizes  

How are veneers applied?

Veneers are usually applied in two steps. First, your dentist examines, cleans, and prepares your teeth. Then your dentist removes a thin layer of enamel from the fronts of your teeth. This step makes room for your veneer to sit flush against your other teeth for a natural and normal appearance. Your dentist then takes a mold of your teeth, which is used by the technicians in a dental lab to make your custom veneer. You’ll be fitted with a temporary veneer to protect your teeth while your permanent veneer is made.

During the second step, you are fitted with your custom-made, permanent veneers. Your dentist will check the fit of your veneers and bond them to the fronts of your teeth with a strong dental adhesive. Then your dentist will buff and shine your veneers until they shine like natural teeth.

What are the benefits of dental veneers?

Dental veneers are an excellent cosmetic solution because they correct a variety of imperfections with a relatively quick and minimally invasive application procedure. Veneers are highly customizable, including the fit, tint, and shape. This ensures that you have a beautiful and natural-looking smile when your treatment is complete. Veneers are also stain resistant, allowing you to maintain your new smile, even if you’re a dedicated coffee-drinker.

How do I take care of my veneers?

You take care of your veneers just like your natural teeth. Brush and floss at least twice a day and attend regular biannual checkups and professional cleanings with the talented dentists and hygienists at Creative Dimensions in Dentistry. Even though your veneers are resistant to decay, you still need to take care of your natural teeth and protect your oral health. With proper care, your veneers should last for 10 or more years.
