Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Porcelain and ceramic veneers are tooth-colored shells that can drastically improve the appearance of your teeth by enhancing their color, shape, and size. Veneers produce the look of beautiful natural teeth without invasive dental work or downtime. Your dentist creates custom-fit veneers to meet your personalized needs and desired outcome.

Why might I choose veneers?

You might choose porcelain or ceramic veneers if your natural teeth are:

  • Worn down
  • Misshapen
  • Weak
  • Cracked
  • Chipped
  • Stained
  • Decaying
  • Crooked
  • Gapped
  • Too small

Veneers are durable and long-lasting, offering the aesthetically pleasing smile you've longed for. They look and feel just like your natural teeth. Unlike other cosmetic procedures, your dentist has to remove only a small amount of enamel from your teeth before placing the veneers.

Are veneers right for me?

To find out if veneers are the right aesthetic dental procedure for you, the specialists at Center for Advanced Dentistry review your oral health history and desired outcome. They examine your teeth and gums and might take dental X-rays. Other cosmetic dentistry options include dental bonding, crowns, bridges, dental implants, and dentures.

What happens during the veneer placement?

Before veneer placement, your dentist cleans your teeth and removes old surface restorations. They take impressions of your prepared teeth and send the information to a dental lab, where technicians create custom-fit veneers.

When the veneers are ready, your provider uses special resins and a curing light to bond veneer shells to the front and sides of your teeth. Your dentist shapes and polishes the veneers to perfect your smile. The procedure is fast and painless but produces impressive cosmetic results.

How should I care for my new veneers?

To maintain the integrity of your new veneers, brush your teeth at least two times daily. Floss every day and avoid chewing on ice and other hard objects. Attend routine teeth cleanings and dental exams every six months. Call the Center for Advanced Dentistry team if your veneers get damaged or become loose.

Don’t live with discolored, misshapen, or gapped teeth when a beautiful smile awaits you. Schedule an appointment with the experts at the Center for Advanced Dentistry to find out if you’re a good candidate for veneers. Call the office or book online today.
