Dental veneers, sometimes called laminates, are ultra-thin porcelain coverings for your teeth. Each veneer is applied permanently to an individual tooth and masks imperfections.
Veneers are custom made to match your natural teeth and to optimize alignment and oral function.
Veneers are the perfect choice if you have any of the following dental problems:
Advances in technology have made veneers the most popular restorative cosmetic procedure because they look so natural and last so long.
Getting dental veneers involves several appointments. First, Dr. Trang meets with you to assess your teeth and oral health, take X-rays, and determine if dental veneers are a good choice for you.
If you can benefit from veneers, you’ll return, and Dr. Trang will prepare your teeth by shaving down some of the tooth and enamel so that the veneers will adhere and fit snugly. This doesn’t hurt, but you’re given an anesthetic to help you tolerate the friction.
One of the skilled dental assistants makes an impression, or model, of your teeth. The lab manufactures your new veneers to match all the unique details of your mouth.
In a week or two, you’ll return for the installation. Dr. Trang cements the veneers to your newly prepared existing teeth. He etches around the veneer to ensure the fit is firm, natural, and optimizes your bite and alignment.
You’ll care for your veneers just as you do your natural teeth. To ensure you maximize the life of your veneers, take the following steps:
With proper care, veneers should last between 10 and 15 years.
