What Are Dental Veneers?

In short, veneers work by simply covering up your dental imperfections. They are thin layers of high-quality materials, like porcelain, that are securely affixed on the front surface of the teeth that show when you smile. To ensure the veneers lie flat with the surrounding natural teeth, your dentist removes a thin layer of enamel from the top of each tooth. It is a minimal reduction that helps your smile look totally natural and beautiful.

The Process of Getting Veneers

If veneers are the right solution for your smile, you can expect them to be applied over the course of just two visits to Dr. Carmen’s dental office. In the first, the two of you will discuss your treatment plan. How did your teeth get into their current state? What do you hope to achieve with veneers?

After we have gathered all of your smile information, we prepare your teeth to receive the veneers. A small portion of enamel is removed from the surface of each tooth, then we take molds that we send to our trusted lab. Here, your veneers are crafted from beautiful dental porcelain.

You wear temporary veneers in the time between appointments. About two weeks later, you return to our dental office for the placement of your new veneers. Dr. Carmen removes the temporaries and makes sure the new ones look perfect. We can still make any final adjustments at this point, if needed. Then we apply the veneers onto the surface of each tooth and give you the first look at your new smile!

The Benefits of Veneers

Dental veneers can help patients who would need several cosmetic dentistry treatments enjoy more transformative results faster than would otherwise be possible. That’s because veneers improve the size, shape, color, texture, and overall appearance of your smile, all at once. And because porcelain is highly resistant to staining, your veneers can be expected to stay the same beautiful shade of white for years after their application.

Veneers are also a smart investment. They are completed over the course of two visits to the dentist and can be expected to last for many years with proper maintenance. It’s a small investment in time for a long-lasting payoff.

The customization of veneers is another big advantage of this cosmetic treatment. Dr. Carmen will evaluate your unique facial features and coloring to help you achieve the best look for your smile.
