Porcelain Veneers Q & A

Why should I consider veneers?

Veneers are thin porcelain shells designed to cover the front side of your teeth and enhance your natural smile. One of the experienced cosmetic dentists at Allure Dental Care of Maple Lawn custom-fits each veneer to the individual teeth in your mouth, then bonds the veneers to your existing teeth. Veneers cover blemishes such as misshapen teeth, stains, cracks, or gaps. In addition, they help reinforce frail teeth.

Although veneers can be made out of resin composite materials, porcelain is the most stain-resistant material. Porcelain tends to do a better job replicating the look of your natural teeth enamel, too. A member of the qualified dental team presents your options and helps you select the best type of veneers for your needs.

How do I get veneers?

The process begins with a consultation to discuss your goals and determine the best type of veneers for your needs, after which you come back for a second appointment. Here, a skilled cosmetic dental specialist readies your current teeth for the shape of the veneers by scraping off a minimal amount of enamel from the surface. After your teeth have been prepared, 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. Your teeth are cleaned and etched to prepare them for the bonding process. A dental expert then applies a unique adhesive and light source which makes the cement bond 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 the benefits of veneers?

Veneers offer a natural-looking solution for broken, crooked, or misshapen teeth. Also, they provide the following benefits:

  • Resistance to stains
  • Little gum irritation
  • Can lighten darker teeth
  • Aesthetically pleasing with minimal dental work
  • Strengthen teeth
  • Less expensive than some other dental procedures like crowns
