Dental veneers are very thin shells, typically made of porcelain or resin, that are bonded to the front of your teeth to enhance the beauty of your smile. Our dentists may recommend dental veneers to correct several types of smile imperfections. Porcelain veneers are an excellent choice for enhancing your smile because the color and translucence of porcelain is a great match for the natural appearance of tooth enamel. Porcelain is stain resistant as well, so your smile will stay bright for years to come. Resin veneers can also be matched to your natural tooth color. With dental veneers, you can achieve a beautiful, natural-looking smile that you will love to show off.
Our dentists may recommend dental veneers if you would like to improve the appearance of your smile. Custom-made veneers can be used for just one tooth or for your entire smile. We may suggest veneers to:
Close large spaces and gaps between teeth
Whiten teeth that are severely stained or discolored
Improve the appearance of irregularly shaped teeth
Correct slightly crooked teeth
Restore teeth that are broken, chipped, worn or fractured
To begin the process of getting veneers at Ghotanian Dental, you will need to have a comprehensive smile analysis conducted by one of our dentists. During this process, we consider your unique features such as tooth color, skin tone, and jaw structure, and take X-rays and digital impressions to create veneers that match your desired goals and concerns. We use color matching techniques to ensure the veneers complement your smile and appearance.
Once the dental lab has created your custom veneers, we prepare your teeth and attach the new veneers to the surfaces using a special bonding material. To ensure your comfort during the procedure, we offer local anesthesia.
What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are customized, thin shells made of tooth-colored materials like porcelain or composite resin. They are designed to cover the front surface of teeth, enhancing their appearance and improving various dental imperfections like discoloration, chips, and gaps.
What dental issues can veneers fix?
Dental veneers are a versatile cosmetic dentistry solution that can address a range of dental issues. They can be used to improve the appearance of discolored teeth, as well as to fix chipped, broken, or misshapen teeth. Veneers can also be used to close gaps between teeth, creating a more uniform and attractive smile.
How long do veneers last?
Veneers can typically last between 7 to 15 years, depending on factors such as the quality of the material used, the patient's oral hygiene habits, and the amount of wear and tear on the veneers over time. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings can help prolong the lifespan of veneers.
What is the process for getting veneers?
The process for getting veneers typically involves several steps, including an initial consultation with a dentist, preparing the teeth for the veneers by removing a small amount of enamel, taking impressions of the teeth, and placing temporary veneers until the permanent ones are ready. The final step is bonding the veneers onto the teeth using a special adhesive.
Are veneers noticeable?
Veneers are intended to have a natural appearance, so they should blend in with your natural teeth seamlessly. However, it is crucial to collaborate with a proficient cosmetic dentist to guarantee that the veneers match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth accurately.
Are veneers a good option for everyone?
Veneers can be an excellent solution for improving the appearance of teeth, but it's essential to consider individual dental needs before undergoing the procedure. Patients with severe tooth decay, gum disease, or weakened or damaged teeth may not be good candidates for veneers. A consultation with a cosmetic dentist can help determine whether veneers are the best option for a patient's specific situation.
How do I care for my veneers?
Caring for your veneers is similar to caring for your natural teeth, including brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting the dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings. It’s also important to avoid biting or chewing on hard objects, as this can damage the veneers.
Are veneers covered by insurance?
Veneers are usually considered a cosmetic dental treatment and are not covered by most dental insurance plans. However, some dental practices may offer financing options or payment plans to help make veneers more affordable for patients. It’s important to discuss the cost and payment options with your dentist before undergoing any dental procedure.
