Veneer Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are custom-made thin porcelain attachments on the front of your teeth that enhance the look of your smile. Veneers can make teeth look whiter, brighter, and more evenly shaped for a beautiful, sparkling smile.

Which conditions can be addressed with veneers?

Veneers are an excellent way to address cosmetic concerns, such as:

  • Discolored or stained teeth
  • Worn or chipped teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Gaps or uneven spacing

Veneers can also make unusually large or small teeth look more uniform.

Am I a candidate for veneers?

If your teeth are healthy and functional, but you have concerns about the way they look, you're probably a candidate for veneers. If you think veneers may be right for you, your skilled dentist at The Glen Dental performs a comprehensive evaluation, including a review of your dental history, an oral exam, and X-rays, before recommending veneers or another option to address your concerns.

If you have missing or structurally damaged teeth, a crown, bridge, dentures, or dental implants may be the best way to improve the look of your smile and the health of your teeth.

What is the process for veneers?

The experienced dentists at The Glen Dental typically install your veneers over the course of two visits. During your first appointment, your dentist prepares your teeth by lightly buffing and shaping the surface; little to no anesthesia is necessary for this procedure. Your expert also takes an impression of your teeth and assists you in selecting the color of your veneers.

At your next appointment, your dentist cleans your teeth to ensure proper bonding, then applies an adhesive to the surface of your teeth. They carefully place the veneer and use a special light to harden and set the bond.

How do I care for my veneers?

Caring for your veneers is easy and usually not very different than caring for your natural teeth. Your dentist at The Glen Dental provides more specific instructions for proper care of your veneers, based on your personal situation. 

Veneers can last many years, but eventually, they need to be replaced. However, good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups help to extend the life of your veneers.
