Veneers Q & A

Are veneers right for me?

Veneers help recreate the appearance of your natural teeth with a thin layer of porcelain. Each veneer is custom-made to fit your individual teeth to ensure flawless results. Then, an experienced cosmetic dentist at Hansen Dental Care bonds the veneers to your current teeth. Veneers correct imperfections like stains, cracks, holes, or misshapen teeth. In addition, they help reinforce frail teeth.

Porcelain remains the most stain-resistant material for making veneers, though veneers may also be created out of resin composite materials. Porcelain also tends to look more like your natural enamel. A skilled dental team member describes your choices and helps you pick the best kind of veneers for your unique situation.

How do I get veneers?

The process begins with a consultation to discuss your goals and determine the best type of veneers for your needs, after which you return for a follow-up 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 takes a mold of your teeth to create your individualized veneers in the dental lab.

When your veneers are finished, you return to the office, and your veneers are fitted one by one over your existing teeth. Once your teeth are entirely prepared for the bonding process, the dental specialist applies a unique adhesive and light beam. This step helps the cement bond firmly to the porcelain. In a relatively short amount of time, your veneers are permanently in place, and you have a new and improved smile.

What are some advantages of veneers?

Veneers provide a natural-looking way to correct crooked, cracked, or misshapen teeth. Additionally, they offer the following advantages:

  • Resistance to stains
  • Little gum irritation
  • Can lighten darker teeth
  • Look great with no invasive dental work
  • Strengthen teeth
  • Less expensive than some other dental procedures like crowns
