Are Veneers Right for You?

Your smile is one of the first things someone notices about you. It can be embarrassing if your teeth are chipped, crooked, or just won’t stay white. Cosmetic veneers may be the solution to enhance your beautiful simile. If you are considering veneers read on to learn about the whole process and who benefits the most from these dental devices.

What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin, custom-made ceramic shells of tooth-colored materials designed to adhere to the front of your teeth. The veneers are permanently bonded to mask their natural color, shape, or position in the mouth. Veneers can be used for just one tooth or multiple teeth, and the porcelain material can be tinted to the specific shade of white that works best with your skin color. Veneers are an effective choice for people who want to keep their natural teeth but need more correction than whitening alone can offer.

Who Do Veneers Work Best For?

The purpose of placing veneers is to conserve as much of the natural tooth structure as possible by utilizing a cometic approach to improve the shape, size, and color of your teeth. Veneers are ideal for solving a variety of dental problems including:

  • Discolored teeth due to:
    • Root canal treatment
    • Excessive fluoride
    • Large resin fillings
  • Chipped teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Oddly shaped teeth
  • Uneven teeth
  • Misaligned teeth

Veneers perfect smiles instantly with their ability to lengthen, enlarge, and straighten teeth. Veneers also resist stains, stabilize the gum tissues, restore teeth edges, and renew old dental work – all while looking completely natural.

Getting Veneers

Getting dental veneers is a multi-step procedure that occurs over three visits. The first visit involves a consultation and the second is to shape and apply the veneers. In preparation for veneers, your dentist will reshape the tooth surface, which allows your tooth to reach the ideal thickness for the veneer to be added to the tooth surface.  After shaving a very thin layer of your tooth enamel, smaller than your fingernail, the dentist takes an impression of your teeth. A temporary veneer is placed on your teeth while your permanent veneers are being made.  Once the final veneers have been created, you will return to the dentist’s office to remove your temporary veneers and have the permanent porcelain veneers applied.
