Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are ultra-thin porcelain shells that adhere to the surface of your teeth. These custom-made coverings can change the shape, size, and color of your teeth without requiring extensive dental work. Veneers typically take just two appointments to place and can instantly upgrade your smile.

What can veneers treat?

As custom-made shells, veneers can treat a variety of cosmetic dental concerns, including:

  • Tooth discoloration
  • Chipped teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Overly short or long teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Fractured teeth

While the primary role of veneers is to discreetly cover cosmetic issues, they can also improve your tooth function. Straight, uniform teeth fit together better than misshapen, misaligned teeth. When your teeth are crooked or have gaps, bacteria and debris can become trapped in their small crevices. This can lead to concerns like tooth decay and gum disease.

By improving the shape and alignment of your teeth, veneers can help prevent cavities, tooth erosion, and other common dental issues.

What is the veneers process like?

The first step in the veneers process is determining whether you’re a good candidate. Dr. Shahdad starts by performing a dental exam and taking X-rays. Then she prepares your teeth for veneers.

To ensure the veneer blends in with the rest of your teeth, Dr. Shahdad removes a small portion of enamel. Next, she takes highly accurate digital impressions to create your custom-made veneers. 

Over the next two to three weeks, you’ll wear temporary veneers to protect your teeth while an outside lab creates your permanent restorations.

At your final appointment, Dr. Shahdad removes your temporary veneers and cleans your teeth. Next, she etches your teeth to provide a rough surface for the veneers. The etching process allows veneers to adhere to the teeth better than a smooth surface.

Finally, Dr. Shahdad makes any necessary adjustments before cementing your new veneers in place.

What are the benefits of veneers?

When compared to other cosmetic and restorative treatments, porcelain veneers offer many benefits, including:

  • Less tooth reduction
  • More affordable
  • Stain resistant
  • Durable materials
  • Natural appearance
  • Fast procedure
