What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers use top-quality porcelain to cover the visible surfaces of your front teeth. They’re crafted to be incredibly thin and fit directly over your teeth's surface. They’re also fully customized, so your veneers are unlike those of any other patient.


Veneers offer the chance to correct numerous cosmetic issues at once. This makes them a great value compared to having multiple treatments in an effort to improve the appearance of your smile. 


Some of the aesthetic issues dental veneers can improve include:


  • Discoloration
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Minor misalignment
  • Irregularities in the size or shape of teeth


When you notice the seemingly perfect smile of a celebrity or public figure, it’s often a great set of dental veneers you’re appreciating. 

What happens during the dental veneers procedure?

It takes a few office visits to complete the dental veneers process, but the outcome is well worth the wait. Your dentist might gather imaging during the planning stages to determine if dental veneers are right for you. If you have active dental decay or gum disease, those issues need to be resolved before moving ahead with veneers. 


On the day of your procedure, an injection of local anesthetic prevents you from feeling any discomfort during your visit. Your dentist removes a small portion of your natural tooth tissue to make room for the veneers. 


A set of impressions are made to guide the fabrication of your new veneers. Temporary veneers are placed to protect your teeth until the permanent versions arrive from the dental lab. At that point, you return to have them cemented into place, completing the treatment. 

Are dental veneers permanent?

Because dental veneers require removing a portion of your tooth enamel, they’re considered a permanent treatment. However, it’s important to understand that even the best set of dental veneers eventually need to be replaced. 


You can expect to get a decade or more of wear out of your new veneers. Your dentist checks your veneers during each dental exam and advises you when they need to be replaced. 


The replacement process begins with removing your current veneers. From that point forward, the same steps are followed. If there are things about your smile you’d like to change, just let Shara Miller, DDS, know when you come in for a new set of veneers.
