Veneers Q & A

 

What are veneers?

Porcelain veneers at Smile Dental are thin, custom-made, tooth-colored shells your dentist places over the front surface of your teeth to restore their color, shape, texture, and overall appearance. Veneers can correct teeth that are:

  • Too small
  • Misshapen
  • Crooked
  • Gapped
  • Discolored
  • Chipped
  • Cracked
  • Worn down
  • Broken

Porcelain veneers look, function, and feel like natural teeth. They can drastically improve the appearance of your smile and boost your self-confidence. Getting veneers is simple and fast and requires no downtime.

Are porcelain veneers right for me?

Your Smile Dental specialist examines your teeth and gums, takes dental X-rays, and reviews your oral health history to determine if veneers are right for you. They discuss your desired outcome and let you know what to expect during veneer placement.

What happens during veneer placement?

During the first step in getting veneers, your Smile Dental specialist digitally scans your teeth and sends the information to a nearby dental lab. Technicians create new, custom veneers that fit perfectly over your natural teeth.

When the veneers are ready, you return to Smile Dental for veneer placement. Your dentist removes a tiny portion of the enamel from the surface of each tooth and uses special dental glue to permanently bond veneers to the front and sides of your natural teeth. After ensuring the best possible fit and comfort, you can head home. The procedure is fast and painless.

What should I expect after getting veneers?

After receiving your new veneers, there’s no downtime. You can resume a normal routine right away. Take good care of your veneers by brushing your teeth after meals, flossing your teeth daily, and not chewing on hard candy, ice, pens, or other hard objects.

If you grind your teeth at night, ask your dentist about wearing a nightguard to protect your teeth. Call the Smile Dental office if you damage your veneers or they become loose. See the dental team every six months for routine cleanings and dental exams.

Don’t live with chipped, misshapen, discolored, or imperfect teeth that embarrass you. Schedule an appointment with Smile Dental today by calling the office or booking online to determine if you’re a candidate for porcelain veneers.
