What are veneers?

 

Veneers are a way to get a beautiful, Hollywood smile, especially when you have dental flaws and concerns that make you feel that your smile is inadequate. 

 

These thin porcelain sheets are about the thickness of a contact lens. They can cover one or more teeth and even correct the look of an entire row. Veneers fit snugly to mask uneven, discolored, or damaged teeth. The porcelain matches the natural color of your smile and reflects light, so your smile seems like your own. 

Why should I consider getting veneers?

 

Veneers are an excellent solution if you have minor cosmetic imperfections that don’t need extensive dental work. You might consider veneers to help with smile concerns like: 

 

  • Wide tooth gaps
  • Chips
  • Dentin discoloration
  • Broken teeth
  • Pointy or short teeth
  • Cracks
  • Heavy enamel staining

 

Veneers are stain-resistant and sturdy. They don’t require any special care, just the same good oral hygiene habits.  

 

With the right care, your veneers can last 10-15 years or longer*. Avoid chewing on hard objects or foods, like popcorn kernels, to protect your veneers’ integrity. If your veneers should get damaged or suffer natural wear-and-tear, visit WestCare Dental to get a replacement. 

What is it like to get veneers?

 

Veneers require two dental visits. The process is minimally invasive and will require a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable. 

 

During your first visit at WestCare Dental, your provider removes a small layer of your natural tooth enamel to make room for the veneer. They’ll create a mold of your teeth and send it to a lab, where the veneers are crafted and customized for your smile. You’ll receive temporary veneers in the meanwhile. 

 

At your second visit, your provider removes the temporary veneers and etches your teeth slightly to promote the best adherence of your permanent veneers. The veneers attach to your teeth using a special sturdy and biocompatible dental cement. Your provider refines your bite to make it look natural and feel comfortable.
