Frequently Asked Questions About Veneers

Question: How are they placed?

Answer: First, the teeth receiving them will need to be prepared. This involves removing a thin layer of enamel to make room for them. Impression’s will be taken of the teeth and used in the fabrication process. Once the new restorations are complete, the patient returns to the office for placement, which involves applying the restoration with a powerful bonding agent.

Question: What are veneers made of?

Answer: They are made from very thin shells of porcelain. We employ this material for veneers and crowns because it is strong, stain-resistant, and mimics the appearance of natural tooth enamel. With proper care and maintenance your restorations can last for decades. You should always brush and floss your teeth and allow a dentist to examine them once every six months.

Question: What cosmetic issues can they address?

Answer: We may place them to makes teeth stains, correct the appearance of minor alignment issues, close gaps between teeth, or reshape malformed or damaged teeth. We can completely change your smile’s appearance with a single cosmetic procedure.

Question: Can anyone wear them?

Answer: We recommend them for people with healthy teeth. If the teeth are severely decayed or infected, they will require treatment before receiving the cosmetic restoration. The doctor can examine your smile to see if you are an optimal candidate for porcelain restorations.
