Why veneers?

Why do so many dentists recommend using dental veneers? Because they are a natural looking, permanent tooth repair option that can often be done in only two dental visits. They do not require any special care and should be treated like the rest of the natural teeth. Although, fluoridated toothpaste and using a soft bristle toothbrush is recommended.

What exactly are veneers?

They are super thin ‘shells’ that the dentist will carefully construct so that they are able to fit them perfectly over a tooth that has already been prepared for veneer attachment. Most are made using porcelain, which is very strong and stain resistant.

Two day process

The process involves the dentist first taking impressions of the teeth, as well as photographs in order to make sure the end result is as natural looking as possible. After numbing the patient, they will gently etch the tooth in order to prepare it for the veneer attachment. Upon returning for the second appointment the dentist will attach the veneer to the tooth, making sure any and all necessary adjustments are made that support the best looking smile.

Hard food = use caution

Eating with veneers should be done with caution, especially in the beginning. Eating hard foods can damage them, making it necessary to be very aware when eating any type of hard food. This can include things like hard candy, peanuts, and even crunchy vegetables.

This particular cosmetic treatment is one that is not considered to be invasive making it a great option for most dental patients.
