Veneers Q & A

Why should I consider veneers?

Veneers are a very thin layer of porcelain that helps re-create the look of your natural teeth. One of the experienced cosmetic dentists at 1000Oaks Dental & Implants custom-fits each veneer to the individual teeth in your mouth, then bonds the veneers to your existing teeth. Veneers cover blemishes such as misshapen teeth, stains, cracks, or gaps. They likewise help fortify weak teeth.

Porcelain remains the most stain-resistant material for making veneers, though veneers may also be created out of resin composite materials. Porcelain tends to do a better job replicating the look of your natural teeth enamel, too. A skilled dental team member describes your choices and suggests the best type of veneers for you.

What is the procedure for getting veneers?

After an initial consultation to discuss the type of veneers that are best for your teeth and the results you hope to achieve, you return for another appointment. A cosmetic dental specialist then removes a tiny layer of enamel from the surface of your existing teeth to make sure the veneers bond and fit properly. Once your teeth are prepped, your dental practitioner takes a mold of your teeth to create your individualized veneers in the dental lab.

When your veneers are ready, you come back to have the veneers fitted to each tooth. Once your teeth are entirely prepared for the bonding process, the dental specialist applies a unique adhesive and light beam. This step helps the cement bond firmly to the porcelain. Voila! Once the cement dries, you have a new and upgraded smile!

What are some advantages of veneers?

Veneers offer a natural-looking solution for broken, crooked, or misshapen teeth. Also, they provide the following benefits:

  • Resistance to stains
  • Little gum irritation
  • Ability to lighten darker teeth, so they appear whiter
  • Aesthetically pleasing with minimal dental work
  • Strengthen teeth
  • Cheaper than other dental treatments such as crowns
