Veneers are one of the most effective ways to improve the appearance of your smile. They can be used to fix a wide variety of cosmetic flaws because they cover over your natural teeth. This makes veneers ideal for:
- Gaps between two teeth
- Uneven lengths
- Slight misalignments
- Discoloration or stains that do not respond to teeth whitening
- Chipped teeth
- Size and shape
Veneers are small, tooth-colored shells that wrap around a tooth's sides and biting edge for a seamless appearance. A thin layer of enamel is removed from the teeth receiving veneers, allowing them to fit precisely onto the natural contours of each tooth. Following this preparation, the veneers are bonded to the prepared tooth surface and hardened using a specialized curing light.
Types of Veneers
Veneers come in a variety of types; when you visit our Coral Springs dental practice, we'll help you pick the right solution for your needs.
Dental veneers made of porcelain are considered the gold standard because they last the longest and look the most natural. A skilled technician creates each veneer in a dental laboratory by using multiple thin layers of porcelain to imitate the appearance of a real tooth. Your porcelain veneers will be custom designed by your dentist just for you, with a scale, color, and shape that blends in with the rest of your smile.
Composite resin veneers are a less costly alternative to porcelain veneers. Like porcelain veneers, they're made to match your specific smile and facial features, but they're less resistant to stains and don't last as long as porcelain.
Although they come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors, these veneers are pre-fabricated, so they aren’t custom designed like other options. Instant veneers are a simpler and more affordable choice for patients who want to enhance their smiles with veneers because they require fewer visits and have no lab fees.
Frequently Asked Questions About Veneers
Do veneers ruin your teeth?
It's a common myth that veneers damage or even ruin your teeth, but this isn't true—only the top layer of enamel is removed to place veneers, and this has no impact on a tooth's overall health.
Do you brush veneers?
Yes, you must brush and floss your teeth even if you have veneers. Although the veneers themselves will not decay, the tooth structure underneath them is susceptible and plaque deposits can lead to tartar and gum disease.
Who is a good candidate for veneers?
You may be a good candidate for veneers if you have healthy teeth and gums, but would like to fix cosmetic flaws that make you feel self-conscious about your smile.
Do your teeth have to be straight for veneers?
No, you don't need perfectly straight teeth to get veneers. In fact, many patients use veneers instead of braces or aligner therapy to fix slight misalignments.
Is getting veneers painful?
No, having veneers placed is not a painful procedure. We'll use local anesthetic to numb the area where enamel needs to be removed to protect against any sensitivity.
