What are veneers?
Veneers are literally wafer-thin and generally made from porcelain inside of a professional dental laboratory. Our dentist will create an impression of your teeth for correct sizing and shaping. A shade guide is then used to determine the best fitting shade that matches the natural color of your teeth.
How are veneers applied to my teeth?
In order to apply veneers to the teeth, your original teeth must be shaved down to make space for the veneer attachment. This allows the veneers to rest comfortably on top of your original tooth, completely reshaping it.
How much is shaved away from my tooth?
This depends on each individual, but generally only a fraction of your tooth’s enamel is shaved down to make enough space for your veneers to fit comfortably.
How long do veneers last?
With good oral hygiene at home and routine follow-ups with your dentist, dental veneers often last longer than 10 years. Corrections may be made at anytime for adjustments or correction.
Is there any special care for dental veneers?
No, there is no special care for dental veneers. Simply brush & floss your teeth as your normally would in order to maintain your veneers and your oral health.
