What Are Dental Veneers?

Veneers are thin shells made of porcelain. By placing the thin shells over the surface of your teeth, they can cover imperfections and create a uniform and visually appealing smile. Veneers are famous for their simplicity and their ability to last for years of biting and chewing without degrading. Our office uses porcelain which is known for its durability and natural feel in the mouth.

5 Ways Veneers Can Transform Your Smile

There are numerous benefits to veneers that make them ideal for patients with a wide variety of dental problems. During your initial visit, our dentist will sit down with you to determine if you're a good candidate for veneers and if they can help you accomplish your cosmetic goals. Some benefits of veneers include, but are not limited to:

  1. Concealing minor, aesthetic issues like chips and cracks
  2. Reshaping teeth that are too small
  3. Covering severe discoloration
  4. Correcting minor misalignment issues
  5. Reducing unwanted tooth gaps

Our Porcelain Veneer Process

Auburn veneersTo receive your veneers, there are various steps that are typically completed in two visits. We begin the process by conducting a thorough oral exam of your smile. It helps us identify potential dental complications like cavities that would prevent you from receiving your veneers. We'll then figure out the ideal shape, shade, and placement of your veneers.

Our dentist slightly shape your teeth during your first appointment to create a space that perfectly fits your veneer. Our practice is committed to preserving as much of your natural teeth as possible and will not shape any area that isn't necessary for the placement of your veneers. During your second appointment, we'll place your veneers and make any necessary adjustments.

Porcelain Veneer FAQs

It's normal to have countless questions about veneers. Our dental team is here to answer your questions and give you the information you need to decide whether porcelain veneers are right for you. Some frequently asked questions include:

How do I make my veneers last?

You must maintain proper oral care, including regular brushing and flossing. Although there are minimal dietary restrictions associated with dental veneers, we recommend reducing biting into or chewing hard foods like nuts, hard candy, and ice chips. Additionally, wear protecting mouthguards when you participate in physical activities like sports.

When correctly placed, dental veneers should not severely damage or ruin your teeth. Although it's necessary to reshape your teeth's enamel slightly, it won't impact their overall health and functionality.

How long your veneers last depends entirely on how well you care for them. With proper oral care and regular dental visits, you can expect your veneers to last around ten years. However, neglecting your dental hygiene can negatively impact how long you can expect your veneers to last.

Although we recommend you reduce your consumption of darkly pigmented foods and drinks like coffee, tea, and tomato sauce, your veneers are highly resistant to changes in shade.

Immediately following the placement of your veneers, it's normal to experience some sensitivity to hot or cold. However, you can expect any sensitivity to decrease over the next few days as your teeth adapt to their new restorations.

Crowns are restorations designed to cover your tooth's crown and restore functionality. On the other hand, Veneers are designed to replace the surface of your teeth while keeping the remaining dental material in place.
