Veneers Q & A

Why should I consider veneers?

Dental veneers refer to a thin layer of porcelain that helps re-create the look of your natural teeth. Your dentist at University Dental Care takes time to go tooth-by-tooth to fit each veneer before bonding the veneers to your existing teeth.

Veneers can correct imperfections and resolve problems like cracks, stains, gaps, or misshapen teeth. Veneers also help strengthen and reinforce weak teeth.

Veneers are usually made up of porcelain. Porcelain is the most stain-resistant material that matches your natural tooth enamel especially well.

What is the process of getting veneers?

During your initial consultation, your dentist works with you to determine the type of veneers that are best for your teeth and discusses the results you hope to achieve.

With traditional veneers, to shape your teeth in preparation for the veneers, your dentist carefully takes off a minuscule amount of enamel from the surface of your existing teeth. Once your teeth are prepped and ready, your dentist creates an impression of your teeth so the dental lab can produce your custom veneers.

When your veneers are ready, you return to University Dental Care to have your veneers fitted to each tooth. Your dentist cleans and etches the surface of your teeth to prepare them for the bonding process.

Your dentist applies a special cement and a light source to make the adhesive bond securely to the porcelain. When your veneers are securely in place, you can leave the office with a beautiful smile.

Why should I get veneers?

Veneers can effectively improve broken, crooked, fractured, or misshapen teeth and maintain the natural appearance of your teeth. Some of the benefits include:

  • Stain resistance
  • Little gum irritation
  • Ability to lighten darker teeth, so they appear brighter and whiter
  • Impressive results with no invasive dental work
  • Reinforce weak teeth
  • More cost-effective than other dental treatments like crowns
