Veneers Q & A

What are dental veneers?

Over time, it is quite common for people to experience changes to the color and shape of their teeth due to damage, normal wear and tear, decay, or disease. When this happens, the functionality and appearance of your teeth may change. Fortunately, dental veneers are an effective solution to address these common problems. 

Dental veneers are a very thin shell-like cover for your tooth. Your provider places the veneer to the front of your tooth, bonding it firmly in place with the use of special dental cement. Once bonded to your tooth, veneers improve the color, texture, shape, and appearance of your tooth. Speak with the team at Springs Dental to find out if veneers may be right for you. 

What problems do veneers address?

Dental veneers are a very widely used solution that can serve to address a range of problems. These include:

  • Discolored teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Worn-down teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Teeth with poor texture
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Irregularly shaped teeth
  • Misaligned teeth

In addition, porcelain veneers are stain-resistant and can be color-matched to your existing teeth. Once the procedure is complete, veneers appear as a healthy tooth. The team at Springs Dental will work with you to determine if veneers can help to restore the appearance of your teeth and brighten your smile. 

What can I expect at my appointment?

Initially, the team at Springs Dental will examine your mouth, take X-rays of your mouth, and discuss your goals. If they determine that veneers are right for you, they will create a detailed plan of care. In addition, they may take impressions of your mouth, which are sent to a special laboratory in order to create the veneers. 

Once the veneers are ready, your provider will prepare the surface of your tooth to receive the veneer by scraping off a portion of your tooth to create space. They will then rough up the surface, apply the veneer, and bond it into place with special cement. Once it is firmly in place, they will remove any excess cement and shape the veneer so that it has a perfect fit.
