Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are a popular procedure in cosmetic dentistry that enable you to entirely redesign the appearance of your smile. They’re very thin shells that are sealed to the enamel on the front of your teeth, where they cover up cosmetic defects.

Veneers are designed from an impression of your smile, so they’re custom-built to resemble your natural teeth while giving your smile a new and improved appearance. They’re typically made from either porcelain or composite resin, both of which are similar to your natural tooth enamel in color and translucency. 

What cosmetic defects can veneers improve?

Veneers cover the entire front side of your teeth, so they effectively mask a wide range of cosmetic defects, like:

  • Stains that haven’t responded to professional whitening
  • Cracks
  • Chips
  • Fractures

Veneers can also reshape your smile, enabling you to cosmetically improve teeth that are:

  • Misshapen
  • Too small
  • Widely spaced

Veneers can give you a more even and symmetrical smile or just give you the latitude to redesign the appearance of your teeth.

Why should I get veneers?

Veneers have a number of benefits, including:

  • Custom smile design
  • Minimal tooth removal
  • Well-tolerated by gum tissue
  • Stain resistant

The effectiveness of veneers, coupled with the ease of placing them, makes veneers an incredibly popular cosmetic procedure. 

What are the steps in getting veneers?

The first step to getting veneers at Central Dental Care is to have your dentist shave down some of your tooth enamel in order to make room for them. Because veneers are so thin, your dentist only needs to shave off a very small amount of enamel.

After your teeth are prepared, your dentist takes an impression of your smile. They send that impression to an off-site laboratory that creates your veneers according to the precise specifications of your impression. During this process, you wear a set of temporary veneers. 

When your permanent veneers are ready, you come back to Central Dental Care so your dentist can remove your temporary set and place your permanent ones. Once your veneers are bonded to your teeth, you’re all set with your beautiful new smile.
