What Are Dental Veneers?

Veneers are thin sheaths of porcelain that affix to the front facing surfaces of teeth to conceal chips, cracks, stains, and other imperfections in the smile. Once in place, the veneers can reshape even the most flawed smiles.

Who Should Consider Veneers?

No cosmetic dentistry treatment is right for every patient. Before we begin any dental treatment, we will review your options and help you find the ideal solution to create the smile of your dreams. We may recommend veneers in a number of situations, including:

  • Deep set staining that cannot be removed with traditional teeth whitening options
  • To correct and conceal numerous chips and cracks with one treatment option
  • To close gaps between unevenly spaced teeth
  • To recreate the line of your smile when teeth are irregularly sized

How Are Veneers Placed?

Veneers are placed over the course of two dental appointments. During your first visit, we will carefully prepare your smile for veneer placement. We begin by removing a small amount of surface tooth enamel to allow the veneers to fit into your natural smile line. Then, dental impressions are captured that will be used by our lab to craft your veneers. Before you leave the dental office, we’ll place temporary veneers to protect the prepared teeth. Once we receive the final set of veneers from our lab, you will return to exchange the temporary for custom crafted veneers, and you will leave the dental office with a flawless smile.

How Do I Care for My Smile After Veneer Placement?

With proper care, yourdental veneers can last ten years or longer. To maximize the life of your veneers, you should brush teeth twice a day and floss at least once each day. Using the right products is key to maintaining your new veneers. Soft and ultra soft bristled toothbrushes and minimally abrasive toothpaste will help you avoid wear to your veneers and maintain your new smile for as long as possible. You may also want to use a waxed floss to avoid pulling around the edges of your veneers.

Veneers FAQs

Frequently asked questions about veneers

Veneers in Woodstock can turn the smile of your dreams into reality. However, they are a big investment. Don’t worry if you have a few concerns. Dr. Haren Patel will explain everything during your initial consultation. You can also take a look at the answers to the most frequently asked questions below. If you still can’t find what you’re looking for, feel free to contact our office to speak with a member of our dental team.

Are Veneers Permanent?

Veneers aren’t permanent because they need to be replaced, eventually. However, they aren’t reversible. Dr. Patel must etch the surfaces of your teeth to ensure they sit flush for the best bond. Although this doesn’t damage your teeth, they will be vulnerable to sensitivity and bacteria if they don’t have the protection of restorations, whether veneers or crowns.

How Many Veneers Do I Need?

A veneer can be bonded to a single tooth to enhance its color, shape, and size, but the goal of the procedure is to improve your smile overall. Therefore, Dr. Patel, your cosmetic dentist in Woodstock, will recommend bonding them to the teeth that show when you smile. This will provide seamless results and allow you to fix many issues at once. He will explain how many veneers you’ll need during your initial consultation. Some patients may need 6 or 8, while other cases may require 10 or more.

Do Veneers Feel Natural?

Veneers are made of porcelain because it resembles enamel to provide natural-looking results. It also allows veneers to be thinner than ever before. Not only does this make the procedure less invasive, but it also allows the restorations to be lightweight, so they won’t feel bulky. Each veneer is carefully crafted to fit your tooth like a glove. There won’t be any ridges or ledges. Your teeth will feel smooth and sleek.

Can Veneers Get Cavities?

Veneers can’t get cavities, but any exposed tooth surface is vulnerable to decay. Cavity-causing bacteria can also gain access to your tooth if your veneer is damaged. It’s best to practice good oral hygiene and limit your sugar consumption to keep tooth decay at bay.

How Long Do Veneers Last?

The average lifespan of a crown is about 10 years, but they can last for much longer with the right care. You can get the most from your investment by using non-abrasive dental products to prevent scratching your veneers. Brush your teeth for 2 full minutes at least twice daily and floss every night. Limit hard or chewy foods to prevent damaging your restorations. Break any bad habits that can compromise your veneers, like chewing on your fingernails. Schedule a cleaning and checkup every 6 months to ensure your new smile lasts.
