Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin porcelain shells shaped like the front sides of your teeth. Your dentist permanently bonds veneers, where they cover up your cosmetic defects and give your smile a beautiful new look. 

The porcelain that’s used in veneers has a color and translucency very similar to your tooth enamel, so your veneers will look just like natural teeth once sealed in place. 

What cosmetic defects can veneers improve?

By covering up the entire front side of your visible teeth, veneers can effectively mask and improve several cosmetic defects, including:

  • Chipped, cracked, or fractured teeth
  • Teeth that are worn down
  • Discoloration that hasn’t responded to professional teeth whitening
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Teeth that are too small
  • Widely spaced teeth

Veneers can transform your smile to give you the look you’ve always dreamed of.

Why should I get veneers?

Veneers have many benefits, including:

  • Conservative and minimally invasive treatment
  • Dramatic results
  • Stain-resistance
  • Specifically tailored to your smile

And by redesigning your smile, veneers can boost your confidence and enhance your self-esteem.

What happens when I get veneers?

Together, you and your dentist pick out your veneers. You can choose their size, shape, and color, and your dentist will help make sure you pick a set that looks good with your natural facial features. 

Then, your dentist removes some of the enamel from your teeth to make room for the veneers. The amount of enamel removed is roughly equivalent to the size of the veneers, which are very thin. 

In some cases, you don’t even need anesthesia for this step, because so little enamel is being removed. 

Next, your dentist takes an impression of your mouth and sends it to a lab. The dental lab designs your veneers using your impression, which ensures that they fit perfectly. While the lab is doing its work, you wear a set of temporary veneers.

You come back to Gaston and Murrell Family Dentistry for a second visit when your permanent veneers are back from the lab. Your dentist removes your temporary veneers and puts your permanent ones in place. If the fit is accurate and comfortable, dental cement seals them in place.
