Veneers Q & A
What are veneers?
Veneers are a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that can improve the look of your smile. Veneers are thin overlays bonded to the front of your teeth to fix cosmetic imperfections like gaps, chips, and discoloration.
Veneers are frequently made from porcelain or resin. You can get just one veneer, or you can get several veneers, depending on your needs and aesthetic goals. Custom-crafted for every patient, veneers look natural and beautiful inside your mouth.
Dr. Morell often recommends porcelain veneers to patients who want to transform their smiles. Porcelain not only mimics the light-reflecting properties of your natural tooth enamel; it’s also stain-resistant to keep your smile whiter longer.
What cosmetic issues can veneers fix?
If you’re unhappy with the way your smile looks, porcelain veneers might be the solution that you’ve been looking for. Porcelain veneers can perfect the appearance of teeth that are:
- Irregularly shaped
- Worn down
While they don’t straighten your teeth, veneers are a great option if you want your teeth to look more uniform for cosmetic reasons.
What is it like to get veneers?
Getting veneers begins with a consultation and oral exam at Morell Dental Care. Dr. Morell evaluates your mouth and discusses your treatment goals. Your veneers will be customized to match the color, size, and shape you desire.
If you decide to get veneers, you come back to the office so Dr. Morell can prepare your teeth. She prepares the surface of your teeth by cleaning them and removing a small amount of enamel. Removing the enamel ensures the veneers will be flush with the rest of your teeth.
The team takes impressions of your teeth that are used to create your veneers. When you return to the office for veneer placement, Dr. Morell inspects each veneer to ensure the perfect fit. She bonds the veneers to the front of your teeth with a special dental cement. After bonding them in place, she evaluates your bite and makes any final adjustments.
Dental veneers are considered permanent, and the procedure can’t be reversed. Most veneers last 7-10 years with proper oral hygiene, and you’ll need to get a new set of veneers after that.
Porcelain veneers can boost your confidence by transforming your smile. To find out if veneers are right for you, call Morell Dental Care or book an appointment online today.
