Emergency Dentistry Q & A

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are incredibly thin “shells” of high-quality porcelain that fit directly over the surface of your natural teeth. Veneers are an incredibly versatile treatment that can correct numerous issues at once. 

When you admire the seemingly perfect smile of a public figure or celebrity, it’s often a great set of veneers you are noticing. Advancements in dental technology have made porcelain veneers available to a wide range of people. 

What kinds of aesthetic issues can dental veneers correct?

Dental veneers are a popular cosmetic treatment because they can improve numerous aesthetic issues at once. Some of the cosmetic flaws that veneers conceal include:

  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • General misalignment
  • Discoloration that cannot be treated with tooth whitening
  • Irregularities in the shape or size of teeth
  • Worn-down teeth

Compared with the cost of having multiple dental treatments, a new set of veneers provides an outstanding return on your investment. 

What is the process for getting dental veneers?

Once you and your dentist decide to move forward with a new set of custom dental veneers, advanced imaging gathers information on the precise shape, size, and alignment of your natural teeth. 

On the day of your procedure, an injection of numbing medication ensures you’ll be comfortable from start to finish. Your dentist removes a portion of your natural tooth to make room for the veneers. A set of impressions are made to guide the fabrication process. Temporary veneers are secured in place to protect your teeth until the permanent veneers arrive. 

At that point, you’ll return to have your new veneers checked for appearance and fit before being cemented into place. This completes the dental veneer process, and you’ll begin to enjoy your new smile immediately. 

You can expect to receive 10-15 years of wear from your new dental veneers. Eventually, veneers will need to be replaced in a process similar to that outlined above.
