Veneers are sets of thin porcelain layers that help conceal imperfections affecting your smile. By choosing veneers, you can hide these cosmetic concerns and achieve a new, enhanced smile. Your dentist bonds the natural-looking restoration over your natural teeth with a special dental adhesive.
You might want to consider veneers if you have:
Because porcelain is such a sturdy material, veneers are long lasting and very durable. You don’t need to change your diet or worry about certain foods ruining your veneers.
The process of getting veneers is minimally invasive and convenient. First, the team at Kluth Family & Cosmetic Dentistry takes comprehensive impressions of your teeth that are used to make your new veneers. They’ll also file down your teeth slightly, reducing them in size, using special dental tools. This will give your veneers enough room to fit.
An outside dental lab then custom-makes your veneers with specific instructions from your dentist, including the exact shade. Your veneers look exactly like healthy, natural teeth. It typically takes 1-2 weeks to finish a new set of veneers.
You’ll then return for a follow-up visit to Kluth Family & Cosmetic Dentistry for a veneer fitting and placement. Your dentist uses a strong dental adhesive to bond your veneers to your natural teeth. This is a simple procedure that doesn’t take long and doesn’t require an anesthetic. It’s virtually painless.
The boost in self-confidence you’ll experience with a new set of veneers is immeasurable. Veneers can completely change your appearance and they require no oral surgery or other invasive procedure.
Beyond the cosmetic benefits, veneers can help restore your oral health. Chips, cracks, and gaps often affect essential functions like chewing, speech, and digestion. Veneers restore these functions and, in many cases, improve your overall quality of life.
Veneers can last 5-15 years, but the lifespan of a new set of veneers largely depends on you. Make sure to treat your veneers just like you treat natural teeth. Continue brushing and flossing regularly, and maintain your regularly scheduled checkups to maintain your veneers.
