What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted from high-quality porcelain or composite resin. They are meticulously designed to cover the front surface of a tooth, masking imperfections and enhancing its appearance. Veneers can address a range of cosmetic concerns, including discoloration, chipping, misalignment, and gaps between teeth. They can be used to restore one or more teeth to help them blend in with the others, or placed on all of a patient’s front teeth for a complete smile makeover.
Are veneers permanent?
While veneers are a long-lasting solution, they are not considered totally permanent. On average, porcelain veneers can last anywhere from 15 to 20 years with proper care. Factors such as oral hygiene practices, diet, and regular dental check-ups can also influence their longevity. Veneers are also considered an irreversible treatment; once tooth enamel is removed to place a veneer, the tooth must always be covered by a dental restoration of some kind to protect and support it.
What is the process for veneers?
Our experienced team will assess your oral health, discuss your goals, and help you determine if veneers are the right option for you. To ensure a seamless fit, a small amount of enamel (about half a millimeter) is gently removed from the tooth’s surface. Precise impressions of your prepared teeth are taken, serving as the blueprint for crafting your custom veneers.
While your permanent veneers are being created, temporary veneers may be placed to protect your prepared teeth and maintain aesthetics. Once your custom veneers are ready, they are carefully fitted and bonded to your teeth using a strong adhesive. Any necessary final adjustments are made to ensure your bite is comfortable and your smile looks stunningly natural.
