Veneers Q&A

What are veneers?

The perfect smiles you see on red-carpet celebrities are more likely due to the skilled work of a cosmetic dentist with veneers than the individual’s impeccable oral hygiene. Veneers are a powerful way to makeover your smile, fixing issues like stains, cracked teeth, gaps, and misalignments.

A veneer is a thin ceramic shell that covers your existing tooth. Placing veneers over your teeth creates a brand new smile that’s as straight, bright, and even as you like. Veneers are irreversible, so make sure to thoroughly discuss the pros and cons with the team at Sharon Springs Dental.

What are the benefits of veneers?

Dental veneers offer many benefits, including:

Teeth whitening

In-office or at-home teeth whitening can treat many types of stains and yellowing. However, these treatments don’t prevent stains from reappearing. Veneers resist most stains and can treat discolored teeth that don’t respond to whitening products.

Fixing minor cosmetic issues

If chips, cracks, misalignments, or gaps in your teeth cause you to hide your smile, veneers can help. While they don’t change the position of your teeth the way Invisalign® does, veneers effectively camouflage minor orthodontic problems.

Replacing damaged enamel

After years of overzealous brushing or consuming highly acidic foods and drinks, the white enamel that covers your teeth can wear down. Once enamel is gone, it doesn’t grow back. Fortunately, the team at Sharon Springs Dental can replace it with veneers.

What should I expect from getting veneers?

Placing veneers takes about two to three visits to Sharon Springs Dental. At your first visit, the team discusses the exact look you’re trying to achieve with veneers and creates a customized treatment plan.

They carefully prepare your teeth to place the veneers. Preparation involves thoroughly cleaning your teeth and grinding down the surface to help the veneer stick to your tooth. They take a digital impression of your prepared teeth and send it to the lab to fabricate your veneers. This process takes about 10-14 days, during which you wear a beautiful temporary solution.

When your veneers are ready, the team at Sharon Springs Dental makes every effort to place them so that they feel just like your natural teeth. Veneers can last up to 15 years with proper care.
