Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions.
As with most dental restorations, veneers are not permanent and may someday need replacement. They are very durable and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long lasting smile
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR DENTAL VENEERS OR LAMINATES?
Dental veneers may be right for you if you are looking for an alternative to crowns and caps. Veneers can help you if you have gaps between your teeth or teeth that are broken, chipped, irregularly shaped or misaligned. To find out more about whether dental veneers are right for you, schedule a consultation at our office.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT WHEN I GET MY DENTAL VENEERS?
Before dental veneers can be placed on the teeth, the surface of the teeth must be prepared for bonding. After administering a local anesthetic, your dentist will buff away approximately half a millimeter from the surface of the teeth. You’ll then bite into a mold that will be used to form your veneers in a dental lab. When the veneers are ready, you’ll be asked to return to have them fitted, bonded and adjusted for shape and color.
WILL I NEED TO FOLLOW ANY POST-TREATMENT CARE INSTRUCTIONS?
There is no special care required for dental veneers, and normal brushing and flossing can be resumed within 24 hours. Because veneers are usually placed over the course of two appointments, it is normal to experience some sensitivity between the first and second visit when the teeth have been reduced in preparation for bonding.
