Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells that are permanently bonded to the front side of your visible teeth. They’re typically made of porcelain or composite resin, giving them a color and translucency that looks just like your natural tooth enamel. This enables them to blend in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth and give you a smile that looks as beautiful as it does naturally.

How do veneers improve my smile?

Veneers cover up the entire front side of your visible teeth, effectively masking any cosmetic imperfections, like:

  • Cracks
  • Chips
  • Worn surfaces
  • Staining that’s unresponsive to professional whitening treatments

Veneers can also give you a more uniform smile if your teeth are:

  • Crooked
  • Widely spaced
  • Misshapen

Veneers are even occasionally used for non-cosmetic purposes, like reinforcing a cracked tooth to protect it from further damage.

What are the benefits of veneers?

Veneers have a number of benefits, including:

  • Stain-resistance
  • Tolerated well by gum tissue
  • Minimally invasive procedure
  • Cost-effective

More than anything, though, veneers give you a beautiful smile that you’ll be excited to share with the world!

What is the process for getting veneers?

Your journey towards a better smile starts with a consultation. You discuss your cosmetic goals with your dentist at Smile Dental Clinic, who helps you select a size, shape, and color for your veneers that best expresses your ideal smile while also complementing the rest of your features, including:

  • Size, shape, and color of your gums and lips
  • Facial features
  • Skin tone
  • Hair color

Once you’ve decided on the aesthetics, your dentist makes room for your veneers by shaving off a very thin layer of enamel from your teeth. Once your teeth are prepared, they take an impression of your mouth that they send off to a lab, where your veneers are designed to fit comfortably and seamlessly in your smile. 

You wear a set of temporary veneers while you wait for your permanent ones to come back from the lab, at which point you come back to Smile Dental Clinic for another visit. Your dentist checks that your permanent veneers fit comfortably and look great, then permanently bond them to your teeth with dental cement.

You leave the office with a beautiful new smile ready for the world to see!
