    Veneers Q & A

    What is it like to get veneers?

    After your initial veneers consultation, getting veneers involves preparing your teeth. Your dentist gently removes a minuscule amount of tooth enamel from each tooth that is getting a veneer. This step makes an ideal platform to which veneers will stick and helps your veneers sit flush along your gum line.

    Once your teeth are ready, you need a quick impression made. This allows each veneer to be customized to each of your teeth. During your next visit, your dentist bonds each veneer to your teeth.

    Don’t worry if any one of them feels like it’s sticking out too far; it’s easy to make adjustments after your veneers are in place.

    In some cases, you might need to schedule one additional follow-up visit a couple of weeks later, just so your dentist can make any further adjustments. That also allows them to ensure that the veneers are fitting in seamlessly and not affecting your bite.

    Am I a candidate for veneers?

    Veneers are thin handcrafted porcelain shields worn on the front of the tooth which improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or worn. Veneers are thin as contact lenses, and are an aesthetically pleasing option of closing gaps, lengthening teeth, and providing symmetry to make your smile more natural. Veneers are intended to last for many years without changing color. They are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry. Ask your dentist if veneers may be right for you.

    If you want to perfect your smile and your teeth are in generally good overall shape, you’re likely an ideal candidate for veneers. This cosmetic treatment is beneficial if you have:

    • Severely discolored teeth
    • Misshapen teeth
    • Slightly crooked teeth
    • Small gaps between teeth

    There may be additional circumstances in which you might also want to consider veneers. So if you aren’t happy with the appearance of your smile, the cosmetic dentists at Greenway Dental Group can help you decide how veneers can benefit you.

    Do I need to have veneers replaced?

    Likely, yes. Although veneers are long-lasting, you might need to have them replaced after 10-15 years. This is only if you brush and floss daily, in addition to scheduling professional dental exams and cleanings twice per year.

    Otherwise, if you don’t follow optimal oral hygiene practices, your veneers might not last as long. In some cases, veneers fall off. If this happens, just keep it in a safe place, and schedule an evaluation at Greenway Dental Group. The team can quickly determine if your veneer needs to be easily rebonded or if you need to have it replaced.
