What are Veneers?

Veneers cover the surface of teeth, strengthening them and providing a more aesthetically pleasing smile and are designed to strengthen teeth and cover the front surfaces. Veneers are commonly made of porcelain or composite materials. They are tinted like a natural tooth and match the surrounding teeth. Porcelain veneers are most often used because they are very durable while still providing a natural look. Veneers are installed to cover gaps, pits, and stains. They can hide chips and cracks and are frequently used to regulate the appearance of teeth.

What happens during the veneer process?

Veneers are usually installed in two visits to the dentist. During the first visit, the teeth are thoroughly cleaned and then prepared by removing a thin layer of the tooth enamel to make room for the veneer. This allows the veneer to lie flush with the original tooth. Casts are made of the teeth and gums to be covered with veneers and sent to a lab where the veneers will be fabricated to fit the patient’s mouth exactly. A temporary veneer will be installed while the permanent covering is made. At the second visit, a strong bonding agent will be used to attach the veneer. The dentist will make sure the veneer fits properly and will buff and polish the installation to make sure it shines like a natural tooth.

What are the pros and cons of porcelain veneers?

Veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry option for fixing chipped, cracked, or malformed teeth. Our dentists can discuss your options and help you decide if veneers are the right fit for you.
