Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are a cosmetic dental option that uses a thin layer of porcelain that’s bonded to the surface of your tooth. Veneers help to improve the appearance, shape, and color of your natural teeth and are a durable, long-lasting, and affordable alternative to a crown.

Veneers don’t improve the health of your teeth, but they help you achieve a vibrant, bright look. Porcelain veneers look like your natural teeth because precise color-matching technology ensures they blend perfectly with the rest of your smile.

Once your veneers are in place, you treat them like the rest of your teeth, maintaining excellent oral hygiene, including brushing, flossing, and having regular dental exams.

How would veneers help improve my smile?

Your cosmetic dentist may recommend you get veneers if your teeth are healthy and you have one or more of your teeth that are:

  • Chipped or worn
  • Crooked or misshapen
  • Stained or severely discolored
  • Unevenly spaced
  • Unevenly sized
  • Too small or too large

If your teeth have gaps that cause you to feel self-conscious, veneers can fill in the extra spaces and close the gaps.

What are the benefits of veneers?

A significant benefit of veneers is that you can treat one or more teeth. Sometimes, just fixing one tooth can make all the difference. 

Veneers are also:

  • Long-lasting and durable
  • More resistant to staining than natural teeth
  • Versatile and highly customizable
  • Natural looking

The team at Simple Smiles has extensive experience using veneers to help you reach your smile goals.

What does the process of getting veneers entail?

The team at Simple Smiles creates a personal smile design, which is a plan and visual representation of how your smile could look. The team takes into account the many aspects of your natural smile to create the best-looking veneer for you.

When creating your smile design, your dentist considers:

  • The shape and size of your natural teeth
  • Your natural lip and gum line
  • The shape and characteristics of your face
  • The color of your skin and natural teeth
  • Your ideal goals for your smile

The team takes digital impressions of your teeth and creates a wax model. Using this model, they can help you visualize how your veneers can improve your smile. They send these impressions to a trusted dental lab who creates your veneers within about two weeks.

When you return to have your veneers bonded to your teeth, you see instant results. The process is painless and requires no recovery or downtime. You get to enjoy your new look immediately.
