Veneers Q & A

What are dental veneers?

Veneers mimic the natural appearance of your teeth with a very thin layer of porcelain. Before bonding the veneers to your existing teeth, one of the qualified dentists at 360 Dental goes tooth-by-tooth to fit each veneer. Veneers correct imperfections such as misshapen teeth, stains, cracks, or gaps. In addition, they help reinforce delicate teeth.

Although veneers can be made out of resin composite materials, porcelain is the most stain-resistant material. Porcelain also tends to look more like your natural enamel. A member of the qualified dental team presents your options and recommends the best type of veneers for your specific needs.

How do I get veneers?

After an initial consultation to discuss the type of veneers that are best for your teeth and the results you hope to achieve, you come back for another appointment. Then, one of the skilled cosmetic dental experts shapes your existing teeth to prepare them for the veneers by removing a tiny amount of enamel from the surface. Once your teeth are prepped, your dental practitioner makes an impression of your teeth so the dental lab can create your custom veneers.

When your veneers are finished, you return to the office, and your veneers are fitted one by one over your existing teeth. To prepare your teeth for the bonding process, the dental expert cleans and etches the surface of your teeth. Then, your dental expert uses a specialized cement and light source that bonds the cement securely to the porcelain. Voila! Once the cement dries, you have a new and upgraded smile!

What are the benefits of veneers?

Veneers improve crooked, broken, or misshapen teeth while maintaining the natural appearance of your teeth. Additionally, they offer the following advantages:

  • Resistance to stains
  • Little gum irritation
  • Can lighten darker teeth
  • Aesthetically pleasing with minimal dental work
  • Reinforce weak teeth
  • Less expensive than some other dental procedures like crowns
