Veneers Q & A

What are dental veneers?

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 the Dental Studios will custom-fit each veneer to the individual teeth in your mouth and then bond the veneers to your existing teeth. Veneers fix flaws such as cracks, gaps, stains, or misshapen teeth. In addition, they help reinforce weak teeth.

Veneers can be made from composite resin or porcelain. Porcelain is the most stain-resistant material out of the two materials. Porcelain tends to do a better job replicating the look of your natural teeth enamel, too. One of the dental team members reviews your options and helps you pick the best kind of veneers for your unique situation.

What is the procedure for getting veneers?

After an initial consultation to discuss the type of veneers that are best for your teeth and the results you hope to achieve, you come back for another appointment. A cosmetic dental specialist then removes a tiny layer of enamel from the surface of your existing teeth to make sure the veneers bond and fit properly. Once your teeth are prepared, your dental practitioner makes an impression of your teeth so the dental lab can create your custom veneers.

When the veneers arrive from the lab, you return to the office and have them custom-fitted to each of your teeth. Once your teeth are entirely prepared for the bonding process, the dental specialist applies a unique adhesive and light beam. This step helps the cement bond firmly to the porcelain. In a relatively short amount of time, your veneers are permanently in place, and you have a new and improved smile.

What are some advantages of veneers?

Veneers improve crooked, broken, or misshapen teeth while maintaining the natural appearance of your teeth. Also, they provide the following benefits:

  • Stain resistance
  • Little gum irritation
  • Ability to lighten darker teeth, so they appear whiter
  • Look great with no invasive dental work
  • Strengthen teeth
  • Cheaper than other dental treatments such as crowns
