Are less than perfect teeth keeping you from smiling? Embarrassment over less than perfect teeth is a leading cause of self-consciousness. Veneers may be just what you need to flash your smile. Veneers are an excellent cosmetic solution for discolored, chipped, broken, or cracked teeth.


What are Venners?

Veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made, porcelain, or composite surfaces that are applied directly to the tooth to improve the appearance of one or more teeth. Porcelain veneers are made for permanence; you can expect them to last 10 to 25 years with proper care. Being made out of porcelain, they are durable and stain-resistant, so the color match to the surrounding teeth will last as long as the veneer does. The dentist will take an impression of the teeth so that a mold can be created to produce the finished veneer. The porcelain veneer is made in the lab, then carefully attached to the surface of your tooth with a unique adhesive which is cured with the use of a UV light. Making the porcelain veneer is finished within a couple of weeks. The dentist will provide you with temporary veneers until your permanent porcelain veneers are ready to be placed. To prepare your tooth for the veneer to properly fit, the dentist will shave approximately 0.5mm of the enamel from the tooth’s surface. Most patients do not experience pain or discomfort during this process. Your dentist will go over the details of caring for your beautiful smile to ensure you get the maximum wear from your new veneers.

Composite or Porcelain Veneers?

Composite veneers are thinner than porcelain veneers and are applied directly to the tooth’s surface. They are minimally invasive and require no drilling or injections. Composite will improve the aesthetics of the tooth but has limitations with longevity. They typically last 5 to 7 years.

The dentist will first examine your teeth to determine if they are healthy and strong enough for veneers. If you are a good candidate, the dentist will go over the different choices outlined above and help you choose the best option for your smile goals.
