Veneers Q & A
What are veneers?
Veneers are customized, tooth-colored shells that are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth. Dr. Gazu uses veneers to improve your smile’s appearance, giving you a more uniform and balanced smile. You can get veneers on each tooth or just the visible surfaces when you talk or smile.
What cosmetic imperfections can veneers improve?
Veneers can cover up several cosmetic imperfections, but it’s important to understand that they can’t replace missing teeth or fix severely crooked teeth.
However, they can help improve:
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Small cracks or chips
- Worn-down teeth
- Slightly misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped teeth
- Gaps in between teeth
If you have dental issues, such as tooth decay or gum disease, Marvel Dental recommends you get these problems fixed before proceeding with veneers.
How long do veneers last?
Veneers are considered semi-permanent, cosmetic dentistry solutions. With proper care, they can last up to 10-15 years*. The key to maintaining your veneers is taking care of them just like your natural teeth, which involves good oral hygiene practices like brushing and flossing your teeth twice daily and visiting Marvel Dental for dental cleanings and exams.
What can I expect with veneers?
Veneers are a painless and seamless process, but they may require more than one visit to the Marvel Dental office. To ensure your teeth and gums are healthy for veneers, you need a professional dental cleaning and exam. Then, during your veneers consultation, Dr. Gazu can discuss your smile goals and develop a treatment plan.
During the first appointment for your veneers, Dr. Gazu takes digital impressions of your mouth to create a customized treatment before sending the plan to a dental lab.
After the dental lab creates the veneers, you return to the Marvel Dental office to have them placed. Dr. Gazu removes a thin layer from each enamel receiving the veneer. She checks for size, shape, and color to ensure a beautiful and natural appearance and then bonds your veneers with dental cement.
