What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are custom-made to cover your teeth and improve their appearance, veneers are an excellent option for patients with persistent cosmetic dental issues. They can help create a beautiful smile without the need for braces, retainers, or teeth whitening.

It’s worth noting that veneers are a permanent dental treatment. During the process of placing veneers, part of the protective enamel is removed, making it a permanent solution. If you’re interested in improving the appearance of your teeth with veneers, contact us today to schedule a consultation with our dental experts.

What is the difference between veneers, crowns, and implants?

When it comes to cosmetic dental treatments, dental veneers, crowns, and implants are popular options that can all improve the appearance of your teeth. While they all mimic the look of real teeth, they differ in their uses and placement. Dental veneers cover only the front surface of a tooth, while crowns completely encase the tooth. Crowns are often used for teeth with minimal structure remaining, while veneers are best for leaving most of the tooth intact. Dental implants, on the other hand, are surgically implanted into the jawbone to replace missing teeth. Alternatively, a bridge can be used to fill the gap, which consists of two crowns on either side of the missing tooth with a fake tooth in the middle.


What to Expect During the Procedure?

When getting veneers, the process will depend on the type of veneer you choose. For porcelain veneers, the first step is removing some of the tooth’s protective enamel to take an impression of your teeth. Then, custom veneers will be made before adjusting and examining them for color and fit in a follow-up appointment. Once the veneers are perfect, they will be permanently bonded to each individual tooth.

For resin-based veneers, the staff will clean and reshape your teeth before sculpting the veneers directly onto the tooth. After shaping the veneers, they will be made to dry and harden before being polished for a natural appearance.

After getting your veneers, you will need to come in for a follow-up appointment to ensure everything is in place and comfortable. Good oral hygiene is necessary to maintain the health of your new smile, and it’s advised to avoid foods that can stain or chip your teeth. With proper care, veneers can last up to 10 years.
