Veneers Q & A
What are dental veneers?
Veneers are thin porcelain shells designed to cover the front side of your teeth and enhance your natural smile. Before bonding the veneers to your existing teeth, one of the qualified dentists at Dr. Darj Dental goes tooth-by-tooth to fit each veneer. Veneers cover blemishes such as misshapen teeth, stains, cracks, or gaps. They also help strengthen delicate teeth.
Veneers can be made from composite resin or porcelain. Porcelain is the most stain-resistant material out of the two materials. Porcelain tends to do a better job replicating the look of your natural teeth enamel, too. One of the experienced dental team members explains your options and helps you pick the best kind of veneers for your unique situation.
What's the procedure for getting dental veneers?
Following the initial consultation to review your desired results and the kind of veneers that are best for you, you come back for a second 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 takes a mold of your teeth to create your individualized veneers in the dental lab.
When the veneers arrive from the lab, you return to the office and have them custom-fitted to each of your teeth. Your teeth are cleaned and etched to prepare them for the bonding process. A dental expert then applies a unique adhesive and light source which makes the cement bond securely to the porcelain. In no time your veneers are permanently in place, and you have a new and improved smile!
Why should I get veneers?
Veneers improve crooked, broken, or misshapen teeth while maintaining the natural appearance of your teeth. Veneers also offer these advantages:
- Stain resistance
- Well-tolerated by your gums
- Can lighten darker teeth
- Aesthetically pleasing with minimal dental work
- Reinforce weak teeth
- More cost-effective than other dental solutions like crowns
