Transforming Your Smile with Veneers

Veneers are thin shells made of various materials, most popularly porcelain. By placing these thin shells over your teeth's surface, veneers can cover cosmetic imperfections and create dazzling smile transformations. Veneers are popular because they're minimally invasive and can last through years of repeated use without degrading noticeably. Our dental practice uses porcelain, known for its durability and natural feel.

Are Dental Veneers Right for Me?

The numerous benefits of porcelain veneers make them ideal for patients with a range of dental problems. During your initial appointment, Dr. Spears will sit down with you to determine if you're a good candidate for veneers and whether they can help you accomplish your cosmetic goals. Some of the benefits of veneers include, but are not limited to:

  • Masking severe tooth discoloration
  • Reshaping teeth that are either too small or large
  • Correcting minor dental misalignment issues
  • Reducing unwanted gaps between your teeth
  • Concealing minor aesthetic issues like chips and small cracks

Our Veneer Placement Process

To receive your veneers, it typically takes two appointments. Our team will begin the process by conducting an extensive oral exam of your smile. The exam helps us identify potential complications, like cavities, preventing you from safely receiving your veneers. From there, we'll determine their ideal shape, shade, and placement. We'll then take impressions of your teeth and send them to a trusted local lab.

Our team will lightly buff your teeth to create a depression that perfectly fits your veneer. Depending on your situation, we may provide you with temporary veneers while your permanent set is being made. Once your veneers are ready, we'll call you back for a second appointment. At this appointment, Dr. Spears and her team will place your porcelain veneers and make any necessary adjustments ensuring they fit securely and comfortably.

Veneers FAQs

Receiving veneers can make a difference in your life in more ways than one. As such, it's normal to have questions about them, and our team is here to answer any that you may have. Some of the most frequently asked questions about veneers include:

How can I make my veneers last?

To improve the longevity of your veneers, you must maintain proper oral care, including regular brushing and flossing. Even though there are few dietary restrictions associated with porcelain veneers, we recommend avoiding hard foods like nuts and ice chips. Our practice also recommends wearing mouthguards if you participate in rigorous or contact sports activities to help prevent your veneers from getting damaged.

When correctly placed, veneers should not severely alter your teeth. However, it's necessary to reshape your teeth's enamel slightly. This slight reshaping won't impact their overall appearance or functionality.

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

It depends entirely on how well you care for them. With proper oral care and regular visits to our office, you can expect your veneers to last around ten years.

Veneers are tough to stain. That being said, reducing your consumption of darkly pigmented foods and drinks like coffee, tea, and tomato sauce will help you keep them bright for years to come. If your notice that your veneers are beginning to darken, contact our office to discuss your options for restoring your results.
