Veneers Q & A

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells that fit over the front portion of your teeth. They are a cosmetic dentistry option that has been in use for many years. In fact, when you’re admiring a gorgeous smile of an actor or celebrity, you’re likely admiring a great set of dental veneers. 

Dental veneers are a permanent solution because the process requires altering the enamel on your teeth to make room for the veneers. When they eventually wear down, you need to have a new set of veneers to ensure your teeth remain protected. 

What issues can dental veneers address?

One of the reasons dental veneers are such a popular cosmetic dentistry option is the fact that they can improve multiple issues at once. Some of the conditions a new set of veneers can improve include:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Discoloration
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Abnormally small teeth
  • Minor misalignment

If you have several of these concerns, veneers can be a very cost-effective means of transforming your smile. They’re also stain-resistant.

What is the process for getting dental veneers?

There are several steps involved in getting dental veneers. The process begins with an evaluation at 286 Madison Dental to ensure your natural teeth can support the veneers. Then, your dentist removes a small portion of enamel from the target teeth as preparation for the veneers. 

An impression is then taken to give the dental lab the specifications needed to craft your custom veneers. You wear temporary veneers until your next visit. 

Once your custom veneers arrive, you return to 286 Madison Dental for a teeth cleaning and preparation for the adhesion process. 

Your dentist checks the veneers’ fit before cementing them into place. The dental cement can be colored to match the shade of your surrounding teeth. 

After cementing the veneers into place, any excess cement is removed, and the process is complete. You can expect your new smile to last for 10 years or more with proper care. It’s important to avoid biting down on hard food or using your teeth to hold or pry objects.
