Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are porcelain shells that fit over the front part of your teeth to enhance their size, shape, color, and overall appearance and create an attractive smile. Noninvasive veneers can drastically improve your self-confidence without surgery or downtime.

Are veneers right for me?

To determine if veneers are the right cosmetic dental treatment for you, the SAAV Prosthodontics team reviews your medical and dental history and completes a comprehensive dental exam. They might also take dental X-rays.

Veneers can improve the appearance of teeth that are:

  • Stained
  • Chipped
  • Misshapen
  • Cracked
  • Decayed 
  • Crooked
  • Gapped
  • Discolored

If there’s anything you don’t like about the appearance of your teeth, veneers can help you achieve the outcome you desire.

What happens during veneer placement?

Veneer placement is a two-step process. During the first step, your prosthodontist cleans your teeth and removes a small amount of enamel to accommodate your veneer shells. They take digital scans of your teeth, choose veneer colors and sizes that match your natural teeth, and send the information to a dental lab so technicians can create custom veneers.

When your veneers are ready, schedule another appointment with SAAV Prosthodontics P.C. for veneer placement. Your provider ensures the veneers fit properly and cements them to your natural teeth where they remain long term.

How should I care for my new veneers?

When cared for properly, porcelain veneers can last 20 years or longer. Take care of your newly restored teeth by brushing them twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste. Floss every day and see your dentist regularly for routine cleanings and exams.

Avoid chewing on popcorn kernels, ice, hard candy, and other hard objects, and don’t open packages with your teeth. Red wine, coffee, tea, soda, tomato sauce, popsicles, candy, and sports drinks can stain veneers so limit these foods and beverages whenever possible. Call SAAV Prosthodontics P.C. right away if your veneers become loose or damaged.

Don’t live with imperfect teeth when you don’t have to. Whether you desire just one veneer or an entire set to restore your beautiful smile, schedule an appointment over the phone or online with SAAV Prosthodontics P.C. to find out if porcelain veneers are right for you.
