Veneers Q & A
What are veneers?
Veneers are thin porcelain shells designed to cover the front side of your teeth and enhance your natural smile. One of the experienced cosmetic dentists at Gentle Dental Care custom-fits each veneer to the individual teeth in your mouth, then bonds the veneers to your existing teeth. Veneers cover blemishes like stains, cracks, holes, or misshapen teeth. They can also restore frail teeth.
Although veneers can be made of resin composite materials, porcelain is the most stain-resistant material. Porcelain more closely resembles your actual teeth enamel, too. A skilled dental team member describes your choices and recommends the best type of veneers for your specific needs.
What is the procedure for getting veneers?
Following the initial consultation to review your desired results and the kind of veneers that are best for you, you return for another appointment. Then, one of the skilled cosmetic dental experts shapes your existing teeth to prepare them for the veneers by removing a tiny amount of enamel from the surface. After your teeth are ready, your dental practitioner makes an impression of your teeth so the dental lab can create your custom veneers.
When your veneers are ready, you come back to have the veneers fitted to each tooth. Your teeth are cleaned and etched to prepare them for the bonding process. A dental expert then applies a special adhesive and a light source makes the cement bond securely to the porcelain. In no time your veneers are permanently in place, and you have a new and improved smile!
What are the advantages of dental veneers?
Veneers offer a natural-looking solution for broken, crooked, or misshapen teeth. Veneers also offer these advantages:
- Well-tolerated by your gums
- Can lighten darker teeth
- Aesthetically pleasing with minimal dental work
- Reinforce weak teeth
- More cost-effective than other dental solutions like crowns
