Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Veneers
Is your smile harmed by a chipped tooth or a
little discoloration? Do you have a tooth that
is slightly out of place but not enough to need
braces? If little flaws like these make you
self-conscious, veneers may be the answer to
restoring your confidence and giving you a
great smile. The answers to the frequently asked
questions below will help you determine if
veneers are correct for you.
What are veneers?
Teeth veneers are very thin and very strong
coatings of porcelain cemented to the front
surface of one or more teeth. They're created to
order and are custom-colored to match your teeth.
There are two types of veneers those made of
porcelain and those made of a resin composite
Composite versus porcelain veneers
Porcelain veneers have superior resistance to
stains and tend to stay longer. Composite veneers
are often less costly than natural stone veneers,
however, they may not last as long. Your dentist
can assist you in determining which kind of
veneer is most appropriate for your requirements.
What are the benefits of veneers?
  • Veneers are meant to correct a variety of
    aesthetic flaws that might cause a smile to seem
    unattractive. These are some examples
  • Teeth that are worn, chipped, or damaged
  • Teeth that are discolored or irregularly colored
  • Teeth that are misshapen or overly tiny
  • Teeth that are misaligned or unequal
  • Teeth gaps are spaces between the teeth.
  • If you have more than just aesthetic issues for
    example, massive fillings, weak teeth, gum
    disease, or fractures you may not be a suitable
    candidate for veneers because of the other issues
    you have.

How to get veneers
  • The procedure for having veneers may differ based
    on the kind of veneers that you select to have
    installed. In general, though, it may consist of
    the following three steps
  • Consultation. You and your dentist discuss your
    smiling objectives, and your dentist checks your
    teeth and may recommend X-rays to determine the
    state of your oral health.
  • Preparing your teeth for veneers is an important
    step. Your dentist will remove a tiny layer of
    enamel from the teeth where you will get veneers,
    and then he or she will create molds of your
    teeth that will be used in the fabrication of the
    veneers. Your dentist may recommend interim
    veneers if you will have to wait more than a week
    for your veneers to be completed.
  • The application of veneers. A final fit
    adjustment is made by your dentist, after which
    the teeth that will be covered with veneers are
    cleaned, polished, and etched (or roughened) to
    prepare them for veneers. After that, your
    dentist will apply dental cement to your teeth
    and adhere the veneers to them, using ultraviolet
    light to strengthen the connection as rapidly as

Do veneers hurt?
Your dentist may choose to numb your gums before
doing the tooth preparation procedure.
Additionally, if you have multiple veneers
applied, you may experience temporary discomfort
in your gums and jaw. Your teeth may become more
sensitive to hot and cold beverages and foods as
a result of the veneer procedure since some
enamel is removed during the procedure.
How do you take care of veneers?
Dental Care near Queen Chinguacousy urges that
you practice proper oral hygiene practices on a
regular basis. Foods and drinks that may stain
clothing should be avoided. Also, avoid chewing
on non-food things such as your fingernails or
pencils, as well as hard meals such as ice or
hard sweets. If you clench or grind your teeth,
speak to your dentist about devices that may help
avoid these behaviors and keep your veneers in
good condition longer.
How long do veneers last?
Veneers may endure for seven to fifteen years if
properly cared for. Because the color of your
natural teeth may change over time, your veneers
may no longer match as well. In addition, if a
chip or crack occurs, veneers cannot be restored
and must be replaced. Get more information to
