Veneers: What To Know

When you ask the question, “what do you first notice when meeting a new person?”, so often the answer is “teeth” or “smile”. Our smiles can make or break a first impression. It takes a lot to keep a smile healthy, bright, and plain gorgeous. Veneers are a simple and strong choice to help you achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of.

 

Why Get Veneers

Little did you know, veneers aren’t just a pretty cover. There are lots of reasons to opt for veneers. Veneers are the perfect option for teeth that are:

  • Chipped
  • Stained
  • Misaligned
  • Worn down
  • Abnormally spaced

You wouldn’t expect it from such a thin porcelain cover, but veneers have strength and resilience to challenge the strength of your natural teeth. You might think that veneers are only for the vain but it’s not just about the pretty smile.

 

Process

To give you the most natural-looking smile, each veneer is custom fit to each tooth. A small (and I mean small) layer of your tooth’s enamel will be removed to make room for the veneer. This layer is removed so that the veneers fit comfortably and naturally in your mouth.

The veneers are bonded to your teeth with a light-sensitive resin that hardens with a curing light. The bonding process is crucial for the function of your teeth. A great bond will make it near impossible to tell that the veneers are not your natural teeth.

Follow up appointments are offered and encouraged to ensure comfort and functionality of your bright new smile.

 

Benefits

  • Veneers are crazy strong: you wouldn’t think something so small could put up such a fight, but veneers give your teeth’s enamel a run for its money.
  • Difficult to stain: while our natural teeth can stain pretty easily depending on our dietary habits, veneers can withstand a lot more. This makes veneers a great option for those with stained teeth.
  • Custom made: it is near impossible to tell the difference between a natural smile and one that has been enhanced with veneers. Nothing beats a great, natural looking smile.
  • Durable: These babies last 10-20 years.

One downfall of veneers is that it can be a difficult decision to make. This procedure is irreversible. You want to be sure you are making the right choice!
