What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are a cosmetic dental procedure that transforms your smile and corrects minor dental problems. Wafer-thin, custom-fit porcelain shells adhere to the front side of your teeth for an instant improvement and a remedy to such concerns as:
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Unevenly spaced teeth
- Stained or yellow teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Small teeth
The skilled team at Oral Care Dentistry: Parnaz Aurasteh, DDS creates a personalized veneer treatment plan to transform your smile from dull to dazzling. You can get a single veneer for a cracked or stained tooth, or a row of veneers across your front teeth. Veneers become a permanent part of your mouth and make your teeth and gumline appear more uniform, brighter, and more aesthetically pleasing.
How are veneers attached to my teeth?
Veneers bond securely to your teeth with dental cement and ultraviolet light that cures the cement. As far as dental treatments go, the process of getting custom veneers is relatively easy. Veneers are minimally invasive and can dramatically improve your smile in just two dental visits.
During your first appointment, Dr. Aurasteh prepares your teeth for your new veneers by removing a sliver of the enamel. This makes room for the new, thin piece of porcelain that covers the front side of each tooth. Using a digital scanner, Dr. Aurasteh and the team take impressions of your teeth so the veneers can be designed to fit perfectly.
Next, a dental lab fabricates each veneer and sends them back to Dr. Aurasteh. At your next appointment, she thoroughly cleans your teeth, then creates a rough texture on the surface of each tooth so the veneer can securely attach.
Dental cement goes on your tooth, and the veneer adheres to it under the ultraviolet light. When the procedure is over, you have a new, improved smile, and your veneers are permanently bonded to your teeth.
How long do veneers last?
If you take good care of your teeth and maintain good oral hygiene practices, your veneers can last up to 15 years. It’s important not to chew on pens, ice, or other hard objects so you don’t damage the veneers. Veneers are strong, but like your natural teeth, they can chip if you’re not careful.
