What are Veneers Exactly?

Dental veneersDental veneers are thin yet durable shells of porcelain used to mask multiple issues and improve your smile’s appeal. They are applied to the tooth’s front surface, typically on the most visible teeth in your smile. Veneers are a popular cosmetic dental solution because they can address mild to moderate aesthetic concerns without the need for more invasive treatment.

How Can Veneers Improve My Smile?

Veneers can be used as a stand-alone service or in combination with other treatments. This makes them useful for both cosmetic and restorative purposes. With veneers, Dr. Relias can help address:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Slightly crooked teeth
  • Severe discoloration
  • Worn or misshapen teeth
  • Noticeably small or short teeth

Do Veneers Ruin Teeth?

When properly placed and monitored by a skilled professional, veneers will not ruin or damage your teeth. While it is true that some tooth enamel requires removal for placement, this is only necessary for ensuring your treatment looks natural and lasts longer. Veneers are permanent cosmetic solutions, designed to improve teeth and enhance your natural beauty, not the opposite.

What is the Process of Getting Veneers?

Patient getting his teeth color matched for veneer treatmentThe dental veneers process typically takes two visits to complete. First, our dentist conducts a detailed consultation that includes discussing your needs and goals for treatment. Once you and Dr. Relias are settled on your desired results, he works closely with you to create a custom treatment plan.

We can combine other treatments, such as teeth whitening, to help reach your unique goals. We will help you choose the desired shade and shape of your veneers as we consider everything from your skin tone to facial structure and how your lips move when you speak and smile.

Who Can Get Veneers?

If you are an adult in good oral and overall health, you'll likely qualify for veneers. While they are designed to address multiple smile issues, your teeth and gums still need to be healthy enough to receive treatment. Our dentist will discuss your options to ensure that veneers are the best solution for your needs.

How Long Will My Veneers Last?

However, with proper care and treatment, they could last up to fifteen years, maybe more! If your veneers become chipped, cracked, or damaged, they may need replacement.

Protecting Your Veneers with These 7 Helpful Tips!

Taking great care of your veneers is simple and doesn’t require special attention. However, it’s still important to care for your new smile just as you would with natural teeth. Below are seven tips from our team to help keep your veneers looking great for longer!

  1. Brush your teeth every morning and night for at least two minutes. We recommend using a soft-bristled toothbrush and an approved toothpaste that will be less abrasive to the surfaces of your veneers.
  2. Floss between each tooth every night and after every meal when possible.
  3. Be careful when biting into things that are hard.
  4. Avoid smoking and or sugary foods and drinks. These can contribute towards tooth decay, gum disease, and possibly damaging your veneers.
  5. Do no use your teeth as tools. Doing so can chip, crack, or fracture your veneers.
  6. Invest in a protective night or mouthguard if you clench or grind your teeth.
  7. Continue visiting our office for routine dental cleanings and exams.
