Things you may want to know about Dental Veneers

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells typically made of porcelain or composite resin. They are designed to cover the front surface of teeth, improving their appearance by changing their color, shape, size, or length.

Why might I consider getting veneers?

Veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry option for individuals looking to enhance their smile by addressing issues such as discoloration, staining, chipped teeth, misalignment, or gaps between teeth.

How are veneers applied?

The application of veneers involves a multi-step process: consultation and planning, preparation of the teeth (minimal enamel removal), taking impressions, creating custom veneers in a laboratory, and bonding the veneers to the teeth during a follow-up appointment.

Are veneers a permanent solution?

Veneers are considered a long-term solution but not permanent. On average, porcelain veneers can last 10-15 years, while composite resin veneers may last 5-7 years. Proper oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups can prolong the lifespan of your veneers.

Are veneers noticeable or do they look natural?

Modern veneers are designed to look incredibly natural, matching the color, translucency, and texture of your natural teeth. Skilled dentists ensure that veneers blend seamlessly with your smile, making them virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.

Do veneers require special care?

Veneers don't require any special care. Maintaining good oral hygiene by brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups is essential. Avoid using your teeth for activities like opening packages to prevent damage.

Can veneers stain or change color over time?

Porcelain veneers are resistant to stains and retain their color well. However, composite resin veneers may be more susceptible to staining over time, especially if exposed to certain foods, drinks, or tobacco. Regular cleaning and avoiding staining agents can help maintain their appearance.

Can I get veneers if I have gum disease or tooth decay?

Veneers are not suitable for individuals with active gum disease or untreated tooth decay. It's important to address any existing dental issues before considering veneers to ensure a healthy foundation for the veneers.

Can veneers fix crooked teeth or gaps?

Yes, veneers can be used to improve the appearance of mildly crooked teeth or close small gaps. However, for more severe cases of misalignment, orthodontic treatments may be recommended for a better outcome.
