Veneers Q & A

Are veneers right for me?

Veneers are thin porcelain shells designed to cover the front side of your teeth and enhance your natural smile. Before bonding the veneers to your existing teeth, one of the qualified dentists at Montrose Dental Group goes tooth-by-tooth to fit each veneer. Veneers hide defects like stains, cracks, holes, or misshapen teeth. They can also restore weak 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 recommends the best type of veneers for your specific needs.

How do I get veneers?

After a meeting to talk through your veneer options and the results you’d like to see, you return for another 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. After your teeth are ready, your dental specialist makes an impression of your teeth so the dental lab can create custom veneers that are an exact fit for your mouth.

You come back to have the finished veneers fitted to each tooth. To prepare your teeth for the bonding process, the dental expert cleans and etches the surface of your teeth. Then, your dentist uses a specialized cement and light source that bonds the cement securely to the porcelain. In no time at all, your veneers are securely in place, and you have a beautiful and improved smile.

What are some advantages of veneers?

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

  • Resistance to stains
  • Well-tolerated by your gums
  • Can lighten darker teeth
  • Look great with no invasive dental work
  • Strengthen teeth
  • Cheaper than other dental treatments such as crowns

Cosmetic veneers are an ideal option when you want to improve the appearance of one tooth or your whole mouth for a complete smile makeover and aesthetic reconstruction.
