What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin layers of material – typically porcelain or composite resin – placed over the tooth to improve its aesthetics and protect against surface damage. Then, dentists attach the veneer to your mouth with a cement adhesive. Porcelain veneers last around ten to twelve years with proper care, whereas resin veneers last around four to eight years.

Another common reason to choose veneers is that they are considerably painless, unlike other dental procedures, like braces, whitening, or crowns. Almost all patients feel little to no pain within two to four years after the procedure.

When to Get Veneers

There are many reasons patients choose dental veneers. They help treat many cosmetic dental issues, from misshapen teeth to gaps. Consider veneers if you experience any of the following:

  • Misshapen teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Damaged teeth
  • Enamel fractures
  • Fluorosis
  • Enamel not fully mineralized
  • Not enough enamel covering the fronts

Porcelain veneers are a perfect long-term solution for dental problems because they are custom-made at our dental lab. You receive personal veneers shaped to your mouth and teeth. Veneers are also stain-resistant and light-reflective, with a look and feel similar to natural teeth.

Dental Veneer Initial Consultation

The first step to receiving veneers is to consult a board-certified dentist. We review your medical history to ensure you’re a suitable candidate for the procedure and all safety precautions to avoid potential complications. We will also conduct a thorough dental examination of your teeth before the procedure to spot any cavities, tooth decay, or other possible obstructions.

The Veneers Procedure

At the start of your appointment, we will roughen your teeth to prepare them for the cement adhesion. We will also take impressions of your teeth to create custom-fitted veneers. We may also provide temporary veneers before applying the more permanent options while we understand your oral health.

We begin with a thorough dental cleaning and then apply the adhesion. Afterward, we place the veneers with surgeon-like precision. Lastly, we use a special light to cure or set the adhesive into place. You must sit under this light for a few minutes before leaving to allow the cement adhesive to set.

When it’s time to leave the office, your new veneers are ready for use. Once the adhesive sets and you’re back home, you can eat and drink as you please.

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
