What Are Veneers?

Veneers are tooth-colored aesthetic shells that are bonded to your teeth to create the illusion of a perfect but natural-looking smile. Any of your cosmetic insecurities can be corrected with veneers. 

By filing down your teeth, we seamlessly blend the veneers into your smile, creating the appearance of a real tooth with superior porcelain materials. 

Correct an uneven or discolored smile by transforming the appearance of your teeth. A highly aesthetic and bright smile can take years off of your face and make you feel much more confident.

The Benefits of

Veneers

Veneers can transform your smile by completely changing the shade, size, shape, and sharpness of the teeth. 

The most common cosmetic imperfections that are corrected with veneers include discoloration, gaps, misaligned teeth, eroded enamel, chips & cracks, and teeth that are too small, long, short, round, or sharp. 

The use of veneers can scapegoat more costly and time-consuming treatment with orthodontics and dental crowns. They can also produce long-lasting results as an alternative to teeth whitening and dental bonding. 

Veneers can last for up to 15 years before needing replacement. Veneers are permanent, durable, strengthen the teeth, and are minimally invasive.

The Veneers

Process

The veneers process starts with a consultation with Dr. Park or Dr. Kwon. An oral exam and x-rays are necessary to determine if veneers are right for you. We can’t bond veneers to a patient with oral health problems and there shouldn’t be any severe damage or orthodontic problems that require more restorative treatment to correct. 

Once we’ve determined that you’re a good candidate, we will administer a local anesthetic to numb your mouth and file down your enamel from the teeth that are receiving the veneers. .5 mm needs to be removed to create enough space for the veneers. 

Without this step, the veneers would be protruding much further than the rest of your teeth. A shade guide is used to match the porcelain veneers to your natural teeth. 

Then, impressions are taken and the dental lab that fabricates your veneers will use them as a model for the proper size, shape, and size of your teeth along with the desired aesthetic that you’re looking for. 

Our dentists in Stamford will place temporary veneers over your teeth while you wait for the fabrication of your official veneers. This is to protect your teeth and prevent your smile from looking strange. Once your veneers have been created, we will remove your temporary veneers and check the fit of your official veneers. If they are satisfactory, we will bond them to your enamel.

How to Care for

Veneers

Despite your veneers being stain-resistant and highly durable, they are still prone to staining, chipping, and cracking if they aren’t properly looked after. Brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste for 2 to 3 minutes and floss once a day. 

Attend dental cleanings every 6 months to remove plaque and stain buildup. Limit your consumption of staining foods and drinks and avoid smoking. If you grind your teeth, wear a mouthguard at night. Don’t chew on hard, crunchy, or sticky foods, and don’t use your teeth as tools.
