Veneers Q &A

What are veneers?

Typically made of porcelain, veneers are slim pieces of durable material that fit on the front sides of your teeth. Each veneer is designed to look like the tooth it covers, but in an optimal state without any breakage, unusual shapes, or discoloration. 

As a cosmetic treatment, the only purpose of veneers is to improve the appearance of your smile. 

You may get a single veneer if you have only one tooth that needs a makeover, or you can get multiple veneers for various teeth at the forefront of your smile. Veneers work best for teeth that aren’t molars and don’t withstand the majority of your bite’s force. If you need to cosmetically cover a molar, a crown is the better option. 

The team at Comprehensive Dental Group shapes and sizes your veneer after taking impressions of the tooth that needs it. They also color-match the veneer’s porcelain to the rest of your teeth so it blends in. You can get teeth whitening before getting veneers to transform your smile further. 

Who can benefit from veneers?

Veneers are an incredibly versatile treatment in cosmetic dentistry and can conceal minor or moderate tooth damage. You can also use them to cover up undamaged teeth that you dislike for other reasons, like their shapes or sizes. 

You might benefit from veneers if you have teeth with:

  • Chips 
  • Cracks
  • Wear-and-tear
  • Heavy discoloration
  • Stains
  • Small sizes
  • Wide gaps
  • Unusual shapes

While veneers won’t improve the function of any of your teeth, they do offer more consistency and symmetry to your smile. 

What should I expect while getting porcelain veneers?

The process of getting veneers at Comprehensive Dental Group doesn’t take much of your time or effort. It takes two visits, the first being for preparation. During your initial visit, your dentist lightly buffs your teeth and shapes the surface to make space for the veneer. Then, they take impressions and evaluate the shades of your teeth.

On your second visit, your dentist cleans your teeth using special chemicals that help the veneers bond to your teeth. Then, your dentist places a bit of bonding cement on the tooth’s front surface before attaching the veneer and hardening the cement with a light. Once the process is complete, you get a set of instructions on how to care for your veneers.
