Veneers Q & A
What are veneers?
Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells that bond permanently to your teeth, where they cover up a wide range of cosmetic defects and give you a perfect-looking smile.
Unlike crowns, which cover your entire tooth above the gumline, or bridges, which replace missing teeth, veneers only cover up the front side of your teeth.
They’re typically made of porcelain, which has a similar color and translucency to tooth enamel, which allows veneers to upgrade your smile while still looking incredibly natural.
What conditions can veneers treat?
By masking the front of your teeth, veneers effectively treat a wide range of cosmetic conditions, including:
- Cracked, chipped, or broken teeth
- Dull or discolored teeth that are unresponsive to whitening treatments
- Widely spaced teeth
- Misshapen teeth
After getting veneers, your smile will be uniform, lustrous, and beautiful.
What are the benefits of veneers?
As a restorative treatment, veneers have several advantages. For example, they are:
- Tolerated well by gum tissue
- Minimally invasive procedure
Veneers are also very customizable. You can pick out a specific size, shape, and color for your veneers to personally design a smile that will look great for you.
What is it like to get veneers?
The process of getting veneers is minimally invasive and requires only a few easy visits to Omni Dental Specialty.
First, you and Dr. Keihani discuss your cosmetic goals and ideal smile. Then he helps you select a set of veneers that best complement your facial features and enhance your appearance. Next, he prepares your teeth by shaving off a very thin layer of enamel. The amount of enamel he removes is equivalent to the thickness of the veneers themselves; they’re incredibly thin.
Once your teeth are prepared, he takes an impression of your smile and sends it to a lab. The lab uses your impression to fabricate your veneers, so they fit snugly on your teeth and comfortably in your mouth. You wear a set of temporary veneers while you wait for your permanent sets to come back from the lab.
You come back for a final visit once your permanent veneers are ready. Dr. Keihani places them on your teeth, checks that they fit well and look great, then seals them in place with dental cement. You leave the office with a brand-new smile that you’ll be excited to share with the world.
