What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers are super-thin shells of dental porcelain that are placed over flawed teeth to give them an effortlessly perfect appearance. Think of them like little “masks” for your teeth. They can be used to correct multiple problems in one treatment, such as:

  • Cracks
  • Chips
  • Stains or discoloration
  • Misshapen or worn-down teeth
  • Stubby teeth
  • Mildly crooked or rotated teeth

Each and every veneer is customized to meet your exact smile specifications to give you the perfect grin you’ve always dreamed of having. It’s also worth mentioning that dental porcelain is extremely durable as well as lifelike; it resembles tooth enamel perfectly, even down to the way it reflects light.

The Porcelain Veneers Procedure

After we’ve determined that veneers are right for you at your consultation, plan on scheduling two additional appointments with Dr. Caballeros to place your restorations. During the first of these visits, we will shave away an ultra-thin sliver of enamel from your affected teeth. This will ensure that there is enough room in your mouth for the veneers. Impressions of those teeth are then taken and sent to a lab where your veneers will be made. In the meantime, we’ll affix you with temporary veneers to wear.

Your permanent veneers will be ready a few weeks later. That’s when you’ll return to our office. We’ll remove your temporaries and lightly roughen the surfaces of your teeth. Then we’ll apply dental cement. Your veneers will be precisely placed and then hardened with a curing light. After the bonding process is complete, we’ll send you out into the world to enjoy your new and improved smile!

Veneers FAQs

After reading through the above information, you now know all about the process of getting veneers and the benefits this smile-improving treatment provides. With that being said, it is completely natural to still have a few questions on your mind. Since many of our patients prefer to do their research online, we’ve responded to some of the most frequently asked questions we hear from patients below. Of course, if you would prefer to speak directly with our team, don’t hesitate to give us a call!

Will My Natural Teeth Be Affected?

In short, the answer is yes. To ensure your veneers aren’t obtrusive or bulky in any way, the teeth being treated will need to be “prepped.” This is completed by removing a portion of your enamel. And although only a minimal amount is removed, there is enough of a change to the tooth’s structure to make veneers a permanent restoration.

Does Getting Veneers Hurt?

From essential preventive care and restorative dentistry to cosmetic treatments, many patients have one important question on their minds: Will it hurt? If you’ve found yourself wondering the same thing, then you’ll be happy to know that our team goes above and beyond to make the entire process pain-free. This starts with a numbing agent during your procedure and ends will a list of aftercare instructions designed to keep you comfortable as you recover.

How Should I Care For My Veneers?

Like your natural teeth, your veneers need to be cared for properly to last. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance that you implement the below oral hygiene best practices:

  • Brush your teeth for two minutes at least twice a day.
  • Floss daily.
  • Rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash regularly.
  • Limit hard or sticky foods that can result in chips and cracks.
  • Quit poor dental habits, like smoking and using your teeth as tools.
  • Visit our team every six months for a professional checkup and cleaning.

Am I a Good Candidate for Veneers?

The best way to find out is to schedule an initial consultation! This visit gives our team the opportunity to learn all about the components of your dream smile and which dental flaws you are looking to fix. From there, we can conduct a comprehensive dental exam, allowing us to determine the current state of your oral health. If your teeth and gums are in good condition, then we can discuss the next best steps. However, if a dental concern, like gingivitis, is present, we will need to administer the appropriate treatment first.
