Veneers Q & A
What are veneers?
Veneers are tooth-shaped shells that are permanently sealed to the front of your visible teeth where they cover up minor cosmetic imperfections. They’re wafer thin and made of porcelain, so they look and feel just like your natural teeth but look like improved versions!
What can veneers treat?
Veneers typically treat minor cosmetic imperfections. Because your veneers cover the entire visible portion of the tooth they’re sealed to, they can effectively mask a number of defects, including:
- Stains that don’t respond to teeth whitening treatments
They can also improve teeth that are:
- Worn or dull
- Spaced too far apart
Veneers can give you a brand new smile with a procedure that’s quick, easy, and minimally invasive.
What’s the process for getting veneers?
Your veneers start with a consultation. You and the Sokoly Dental team discuss your aesthetic goals and pick a size, shape, and color for your veneers that best compliments your smile and the features of your face.
Next, the Sokoly Dental team shaves off a thin layer of enamel from the front portion of your teeth to make room for your veneers.
They take an impression of your prepared teeth they send to a lab. The lab custom-makes your veneers so they fit perfectly in your mouth and blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
The team sends you home with a set of temporary veneers while you wait for your permanent ones to come back from the lab.
Once your permanent veneers are ready, you come back to Sokoly Dental for a second appointment.
The Sokoly Dental team removes your temporary veneers, checks that your permanent veneers fit comfortably and look great, and then permanently seals them to your teeth with dental cement. You leave the office with your dream smile that you’ll be proud to share with the world.
Why should I get veneers?
Veneers are a quick, easy, and minimally invasive way to improve your appearance. Veneers can boost your confidence and improve your self-esteem by giving you the smile you’ve always wanted.
Veneers also have a number of advantages over other cosmetic solutions, such as:
- Feeling natural and comfortable in your mouth
- Won’t irritate your gums
- Are less expensive than orthodontics, dental surgery, and bridgework
Veneers are also easy to take care of. You simply brush and floss them just like the rest of your natural teeth.
