Can veneers help me and my smile?
Veneers provide different results in different situations. Depending on the imperfections you would like to repair and the condition of your smile, veneers can help your smile by renewing the appearance of:
- chipped teeth
- cracked teeth
- discolored teeth
- stained teeth
- uneven teeth
- too-pointy teeth
- slightly misaligned or gapped teeth
How does the process for placing veneers work?
First, your dentist will examine your mouth and teeth to ensure that you are a good candidate for dental veneers. This is important as the teeth to receive the veneers should be healthy and have enough enamel to properly support the restoration. Then, your dentist will prepare your teeth to receive the veneers. The preparation process removes a super-thin layer of enamel from the surface of the tooth. An impression taken of the prepared teeth will help a dental laboratory design and create your veneers. This process takes about two weeks, during which you will wear temporary veneers to protect your prepared teeth. Finally, a second appointment occurs after your dentist receives your final restoration from the laboratory. This visit allows your dentist to fit and place each veneer individually on the teeth to ensure the most natural and beautiful final look.

If you have imperfections in your smile, veneers are a fast and effective way to rejuvenate your look and brighten your appearance. A good candidate for veneers should be in good general and dental health and have realistic expectations for their results. Additionally, they should understand that veneers are a permanent, irreversible procedure. Though they last many years with the proper care, veneers may require eventual maintenance or replacement.
