Veneers Q&A

What are veneers?

Dental veneers are thin, highly durable shells that can cover the front of your teeth to hide imperfections in your smile. Dr. Amria and her team match the veneers to your exact tooth color to make a perfect, natural blend.

Veneers give you a second chance at a great and healthy smile. You’ll also be pleased to know that veneers don’t stain like your regular teeth, and darker beverages won’t cause a problem.

What issues can veneers resolve?

Veneers are a popular way to hide a range of cosmetic concerns, such as teeth that are:

  • Misaligned
  • Chipped
  • Discolored
  • Gapped
  • Misshapen
  • Pitted
  • Stained

These cosmetic shells replace the stained or cracked surfaces of your teeth with a new, pristine surface.

How are veneers applied?

Dr. Amria uses a tool to sand off a thin layer of the tooth’s enamel before she takes a quick impression of your teeth. A lab uses the impressions to engineer your new veneers to fit perfectly.

At your fitting appointment, Dr. Amria:

  • Cleans and dries each tooth before applying the veneers
  • Paints on a thin coating of ultra-strong adhesive
  • Presses the veneers in place over each tooth
  • Hovers a special light over the veneer to speed the drying process
  • Checks your bite

The process is straightforward, and most patients experience little or no discomfort.

Does it hurt when veneers are applied?

You’ll feel Dr. Amria applying pressure as she attaches the veneer to the tooth, but it’s not invasive and doesn’t even require numbing medication. Your teeth may be sensitive during the enamel reduction phase, but this is mild and short-lived.

How long do veneers last?

Veneers aren’t permanent, but they are a long-term solution to cosmetic problems. In general, veneers last between 10-15 years.

To help protect your investment and get the most out of your veneers:

  • Don’t bite down on ice or hard candy
  • Brush and floss regularly to prevent decay in the teeth under the veneers
  • Sleep in a night guard to protect against teeth grinding
  • Schedule regular dental cleanings
