Veneers Q & A

Are veneers right for me?

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 Healthy Smiles Dental Care custom-fits each veneer to the individual teeth in your mouth, then bonds the veneers to your existing teeth. Veneers hide defects such as misshapen teeth, stains, cracks, or gaps. They likewise help fortify frail teeth.

Although veneers can be made out of resin composite materials, porcelain is the most stain-resistant material. Porcelain also tends to match your natural enamel better. A member of the qualified dental team presents your options and helps you pick the best kind of veneers for your unique situation.

What should I expect if I decide to get veneers?

The process begins with a consultation to discuss your goals and determine the best type of veneers for your needs, after which you return for a follow-up appointment. At this appointment, one of the professional cosmetic dental experts takes off a minuscule amount of enamel from the surface of your existing teeth to shape them in preparation for the veneers. Once your teeth are prepped, your dental practitioner makes an impression of your teeth so the dental lab can create your custom veneers.

You come back to have the finished veneers fitted to each tooth. After cleaning and etching the surface of your teeth to prepare them for the bonding process, the dental expert applies a special cement and light source that causes the adhesive to bond securely to the porcelain. Voila! Once the cement dries, you have a new and upgraded smile!

Why should I get veneers?

Veneers improve crooked, broken, or misshapen teeth while maintaining the natural appearance of your teeth. Veneers also offer these advantages:

  • Resistance to stains
  • Well-tolerated by your gums
  • Ability to lighten darker teeth, so they appear whiter
  • Aesthetically pleasing with minimal dental work
  • Strengthen teeth
  • Cheaper than other dental treatments such as crowns
