Veneers Q & A

Are veneers right for me?

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 183 Family Dentistry custom-fits each veneer to the individual teeth in your mouth, then bonds the veneers to your existing teeth. Veneers fix flaws like gaps, stains, cracks, or misshapen teeth. They likewise help fortify frail teeth.

Porcelain remains the most stain-resistant material for making veneers, though veneers may also be created out of resin composite materials. Porcelain more closely resembles your actual teeth enamel, too. One of the dental team members reviews your options and recommends the best type of veneers for your specific needs.

What's the procedure for getting dental veneers?

The process begins with a consultation to discuss your goals and determine the best type of veneers for your needs, after which you return for a follow-up appointment. Here, a skilled cosmetic dental specialist readies your current teeth for the shape of the veneers by scraping off a minimal amount of enamel from the surface. After your teeth are ready, your dental specialist makes an impression of your teeth so the dental lab can create custom veneers that are an exact fit for your mouth.

When your veneers are finished, you return to the office, and your veneers are fitted one by one over your existing teeth. Your teeth are cleaned and etched to prepare them for the bonding process. A dental expert then applies a unique adhesive and light source which makes the cement bond securely to the porcelain. In no time at all, your veneers are securely in place, and you have a beautiful and improved smile.

What are the advantages of dental veneers?

Veneers offer a natural-looking solution for broken, crooked, or misshapen teeth. Additionally, they offer the following advantages:

  • Resistance to stains
  • Well-tolerated by your gums
  • Ability to lighten darker teeth, so they appear whiter
