Veneers Q & A

Why should I consider veneers?

Veneers help re-create the appearance of your natural teeth with a thin layer of porcelain. Each veneer is custom-fitted to your individual teeth, then one of the skilled cosmetic dentists at Gentle Dental Associates bonds them to your existing teeth. Veneers fix flaws such as cracks, gaps, stains, or misshapen teeth. In addition, they help reinforce frail teeth.

Veneers can be constructed out of resin composite materials, but porcelain is the most stain-resistant material. Porcelain tends to do a better job replicating the look of your natural teeth enamel, too. One of the doctors reviews your case options and suggests the best type of veneers for you.

What is the process for getting veneers?

Following the initial consultation to review your desired results and the kind of veneers that are best for you, you return for another appointment. Then, one of the skilled cosmetic dental experts shapes your existing teeth to prepare them for the veneers by removing a tiny amount of enamel from the surface. Once your teeth are prepared, your dental practitioner makes an impression of your teeth so the dental lab can create your custom veneers.

When the veneers arrive from the lab, you return to the office and have them custom-fitted to each of your teeth. 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. In a relatively short amount of time, your veneers are permanently in place, and you have a new and improved smile.

What are some advantages of veneers?

Veneers improve crooked, broken, or misshapen teeth while maintaining the natural appearance of your teeth. Additionally, they offer the following advantages:

  • Resistance to stains
  • Little gum irritation
  • Can lighten darker teeth
  • Aesthetically pleasing with minimal dental work
  • Strengthen teeth
  • More conservative procedure than other dental solutions like crowns
