Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers mimic the natural appearance of your teeth with a very thin layer of porcelain. Before bonding the veneers to your existing teeth, one of the qualified dentists at Pūr Dentistry goes tooth-by-tooth to fit each veneer. Veneers cover blemishes like stains, cracks, holes, or misshapen teeth. In addition, they help reinforce weak teeth.

Veneers can be constructed out of resin composite materials, but porcelain is the most stain-resistant material. Porcelain also tends to match your natural enamel better. One of the dental team members reviews your options and helps you select the best type of veneers for your 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 return for a follow-up appointment. At this appointment, one of the professional cosmetic dental experts takes off a minuscule amount of enamel from the surface of your existing teeth to shape them in preparation for the veneers. Once your teeth are prepped, your dental practitioner takes a mold of your teeth to create your individualized veneers in the dental lab.

When the veneers arrive from the lab, you return to the office and have them custom-fitted to each of your teeth. After cleaning and etching the surface of your teeth to prepare them for the bonding process, the dental expert applies a special cement and light source that causes the adhesive to bond securely to the porcelain. In a relatively short amount of time, your veneers are permanently in place, and you have a new and improved smile.

What are the benefits of veneers?

Veneers improve crooked, broken, or misshapen teeth while maintaining the natural appearance of your teeth. Additionally, they offer the following advantages:

  • Resistance to stains
  • Little gum irritation
  • Ability to lighten darker teeth, so they appear whiter
  • Look great with no invasive dental work
  • Strengthen teeth
  • Less expensive than some other dental procedures like crowns
