What Are Veneers?

Understanding the Basics

Veneers are a specialized type of cosmetic dental prosthesis. They are built to fit over your existing teeth and cover up the front surface with a strong, durable porcelain material. This results in an enhanced smile that looks and feels completely natural. It usually takes only two quick appointments to have veneers placed at Peninsula Dental Excellence. 

During treatment, your dentist will numb your mouth and clean your teeth. Then, a very thin enamel layer will be removed from each tooth to ensure a seamless fit. Impressions will be taken of your teeth, which will be sent to a dental lab where your veneers will be created. This takes about 2-3 weeks, we will give you a set of temporary veneers to wear in the meantime.

Once your veneers arrive at Peninsula Dental Excellence, you’ll come back for your second appointment. Your doctor will check each veneer to make sure they all fit perfectly, and bond each one into place permanently. Then, your smile will be buffed and polished, and the procedure is complete.

Why Choose Veneers?

The Benefits of Veneers

Veneers are extremely versatile and they can be used to correct almost any cosmetic dental issue. Veneers also look and feel completely natural. Once they are placed, they will be indistinguishable from natural teeth when you eat, speak, smile and chew. Because veneers are very durable and stain-resistant, you can expect your veneers to last you for 10-15+ years or longer with proper dental care. Simply continue to brush and floss as you normally would and come in for routine preventive visits.

Are Veneers Right for Me?

Good Candidates for Veneers

Veneers may be right for you if your smile has multiple cosmetic flaws and your teeth and mouth are both healthy. Because veneers cover up your natural teeth rather than replace them, your enamel must be strong and free of decay. If you have any issues like gum disease or tooth decay, these must be addressed before veneers can be placed. It’s important to note that veneers are not intended to be a restorative treatment. If you have a damaged or seriously-chipped tooth, an alternative treatment like a dental crown may be a better option.
