Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin layerings made of porcelain that cover cosmetic flaws affecting your smile. By choosing to get a set of veneers, you can conceal these imperfections and achieve a revamped smile. Your dentist bonds the natural looking restoration over your natural teeth with a special dental adhesive.

You may want to consider veneers if you have teeth negatively impacted by:

  • Chips or cracks
  • Gaps
  • Discoloration or stains
  • Misalignment

Veneers are long lasting and very durable since porcelain is such a sturdy material. You don’t need to change your diet or worry about certain foods ruining your veneers.

How does the process of getting veneers work?

The process of getting veneers is minimally invasive and convenient. First, your dentist takes comprehensive impressions of your teeth that are used to make your new veneers. They’ll also file down your teeth slightly, reducing them in size, using special dental tools. This will give your veneers have sufficient room to fit.

An outside dental lab then custom-makes your veneers with specific instructions from your dentist, including the exact shade. Your veneers look exactly like healthy, natural teeth. It typically takes at least one to two weeks to finish a new set of veneers.

You’ll then return for a follow-up visit at Hometown Family Dental Centers for a veneer fitting and placement. Your dentist uses a strong dental adhesive to bond your veneers over your natural teeth. This is a simple procedure that doesn’t take long and won’t even require anesthesia and is virtually painless.

What are the benefits of veneers?

The boost in self-confidence you’ll experience with a new set of veneers is immeasurable. Veneers can completely change your appearance and they don’t even require oral surgery or any other invasive dental techniques.

Beyond the cosmetic benefits, veneers can also help restore your oral health. Chips, cracks, and gaps often impact essential functions, such as chewing, speech, and digestion. Veneers restore these functions and, in many cases, improve your overall quality of life.

How long do veneers last?

On average, veneers can last anywhere from 5-15 years, but the lifespan of a new set of veneers largely depends on you. Make sure to treat your veneers how you would treat natural teeth. Continue brushing and flossing regularly. Also, maintain your regularly scheduled dental visits for ongoing checkups and maintenance of your veneers.
