Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are a popular and successful cosmetic dentistry option involving a thin layer of porcelain that covers your teeth. The goal is to recreate the appearance of your natural teeth.

Your Pearly Whites Dentistry professional custom-fits each veneer to the individual teeth in your mouth and carefully bonds each veneer to each tooth.

Veneers act like thin and natural-looking protective shells to restore frail teeth and cover up imperfections, such as gaps, cracks, stains, or misshapen teeth.

They are usually created from composite resin or porcelain. Porcelain is the most stain-resistant material out of these two materials and it also tends to be a more suitable match to your natural enamel.

How do I get veneers?

You start with a personal consultation to discuss your expectations and goals and decide the best type of veneers to suit your individual needs. You typically return for another appointment where your dentist prepares your teeth for your new veneers.

Your dentist carefully shapes your natural teeth and removes a tiny amount of enamel from the surface. After preparation, a mold of your teeth is taken and sent to a special dental lab that creates your custom-made veneers.

When your veneers return from the dental lab, you go back to the Pearly Whites Dentistry office where your dentist custom fits your veneers to each of your teeth. A special cement and light source helps an adhesive bond securely to the porcelain and your teeth.

What are the advantages of veneers?

Veneers are a natural-looking and impressive way to correct crooked, cracked, or misshapen teeth. Pearly Whites Dentistry provides veneers due to the many advantages, such as:

  • Stain resistance
  • Noninvasive
  • Cost-effective cosmetic solution
  • Well-tolerated by your gums

Pearly Whites Dentistry also offers Lumineers®. Lumineers are similar to veneers, but they don’t require any reshaping or removal of your original tooth and tooth enamel. Lumineers are especially thin and quick to apply since your teeth aren’t shaved down or changed before the Lumineers are placed.

Veneers or Lumineers can give you a glamorous, picture-perfect smile. If you’d like to learn more, call Pearly Whites Dentistry or use the convenient online scheduling system.
