Veneers Q & A

What are dental veneers?

Veneers mimic the natural appearance of your teeth with a very thin layer of porcelain. Each veneer is custom-fitted to your individual teeth, then one of the skilled cosmetic dentists at Dental Excellence of South Bay bonds them to your existing teeth. Veneers hide defects like gaps, stains, cracks, or misshapen teeth. They can also restore frail teeth.

Veneers can be made from composite resin or porcelain. Porcelain is the most stain-resistant material out of the two materials. Porcelain also tends to match your natural enamel better. A skilled dental team member describes your choices and recommends the best type of veneers for your specific needs.

What is the process for getting veneers?

Following the initial consultation to review your desired results and the kind of veneers that are best for you, you come back for a second appointment. A cosmetic dental specialist then removes a tiny layer of enamel from the surface of your existing teeth to make sure the veneers bond and fit properly. Once your teeth are prepped, your dental practitioner takes a mold of your teeth to create your individualized veneers in the dental lab.

You come back to have the finished veneers fitted to each tooth. To prepare your teeth for the bonding process, the dental expert cleans and etches the surface of your teeth. Then, your dental expert uses a specialized cement and light source that bonds the cement securely to the porcelain. Voila! Once the cement dries, you have a new and upgraded smile!

What are the benefits of veneers?

Veneers provide a natural-looking way to correct crooked, cracked, or misshapen teeth. They offer these benefits, too:

  • Stain resistance
  • Well-tolerated by your gums
  • Can lighten darker teeth
  • Aesthetically pleasing with minimal dental work
  • Strengthen teeth
  • Cheaper than other dental treatments such as crowns
