Veneers Q & A
What are veneers?
If you have concerns about the appearance of your teeth, veneers offer a straightforward and affordable solution. Made of thin layers of porcelain that permanently attach to the front of your teeth, veneers match the natural color of your teeth to correct a variety of aesthetic dental concerns. Veneers can make your teeth look straighter, whiter, and brighter.
How can veneers improve my smile?
The experienced team of providers at City Smiles Dental and Orthodontics recommends veneers to address a variety of cosmetic conditions. Some common reasons patients choose veneers, include:
- Gaps between teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Overly small or large teeth
- Severely discolored teeth
- Worn or chipped teeth
- Uneven teeth
Veneers can even change the appearance of mildly crooked teeth so you can avoid braces and other complicated orthodontic treatments.
What should I expect if I get veneers?
It usually takes two appointments at City Smiles Dental and Orthodontics to install veneers. During the first appointment, your provider makes an impression of your teeth to send to the lab that creates your veneers. Your provider also performs a painless resurfacing procedure that prepares the surface of your tooth enamel to receive your veneers.
At your next visit, your provider cleans the surface of your teeth and coats them with strong dental cement. They set each veneer in place and use a special light to harden the cement, so it bonds with the veneer. Your provider repeats this process on each tooth that requires a veneer until your brilliant new smile is ready to be shared with the world.
How long will my veneers last?
The team at City Smiles Dental and Orthodontics uses highly durable porcelain veneers, but eventually, normal wear and tear will cause them to need replacing. With proper oral care, porcelain veneers can last between 7-15 years.
Your provider gives you specific instructions about how you can care for your veneers at home. Good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups can keep your veneers looking bright and beautiful for many years.
