Veneers FAQs

What Is a Tooth Veneer?

A tooth veneer, also known as a dental veneer, is a dental implement attached to teeth in order to resolve cosmetic dental issues. Dental veneers are also referred to as instant orthodontics.

What Are Instant Orthodontics?

Instant orthodontics is the term applied to a tooth veneer’s ability to immediately straighten part or all of your smile. Dental veneers do not actually straighten your teeth, but they do give you the razzle dazzle you’ve always wanted from your smile.

What Are the Materials Used for Dental Veneers?

The usual materials used for tooth veneers are composite resins, very similar to traditional teeth fillings. Ceramics and porcelain are also used for these devices. In fact, porcelain veneers are widely considered the most high quality option due to their strength and beautiful, opalescent tooth-like appearance.

What Dental Problems Can Be Addressed by Dental Veneers?

While veneers can be used purely for cosmetic purposes. However, they are also an effective solution for teeth staining, fractured teeth with small cracks or chips, dull or misshapen teeth surfaces, and size adjustments.

How To Take Care of Tooth Veneers?

Taking care of your veneers is like taking care of your natural teeth. You can practically eat anything you want, but some items should be taken in moderation. These include hard foods, coffee, tea, and items known for teeth staining.

If you observe proper oral hygiene, like brushing your teeth, flossing regularly, and visiting our practice at least twice a year for cleaning, your gums and teeth will stay healthy and your veneers will continue to look dazzling. 

Please note that veneers are attached to your natural teeth, which means they need to remain healthy.
