Veneers Q & A
What are veneers?
Veneers are thin porcelain sheets that Dr. Samet permanently cements to the front of your teeth. They can dramatically alter the look of your teeth, cover misshapen, broken teeth, and close any gaps.
You’ll need to have an examination and a consultation with Dr. Samet to decide if dental veneers are right for you. If they are, you’ll likely be sent for X-rays. Next, Dr. Samet prepares your teeth for the veneers by removing a minor amount of enamel.
In the office, an impression of your mouth and teeth is made and sent to a dental lab. In the lab, your custom veneers are created. When your custom veneers are returned to you, Dr. Samet will make sure they fit correctly before cementing them to the front of your teeth.
Why would I need veneers?
Over time and with harsh substances in certain foods, your teeth can be worn down, chipped, or discolored. Veneers can restore the look of your teeth and are also recommended to:
- Realign a single tooth
- Close gaps between teeth
- Improve chewing and speech
- Restore discolored or stained teeth
- Restore minor cosmetic imperfections in the tooth structure
Dr. Samet will assess if you have sufficient tooth enamel for the veneers to adhere to. It’s imperative that veneers have a strong bonding surface.
What are the advantages of veneers?
Porcelain veneers are now better than ever before. They’re made by a specialist in a dental lab using high-quality materials and porcelain, making them reliable, stable, and long-lasting. Veneers are also affordable and can be placed in just a few office visits.
If necessary, you can get veneers for multiple teeth at the same time. Once fitted, they should last for several years, depending on how well you take care of them.
Be sure to regularly clean your veneers and take care of them, so they last as long as possible. Dr. Samet will give you more information on how to look after your new veneers. Her goal is to make sure you’re content with your smile in the hopes that you’ll smile more. Call or book online to discuss veneers.
