What Are Veneers?

Veneers are an incredible dental tool that can improve the appearance of your smile and your dental health as well. Veneers are very thin, durable shells that are permanently placed on the fronts of your natural teeth. These veneers are made of porcelain or composite-resin materials, and can be color-matched to look just like your natural teeth.

Our veneers are customized to precisely fit your teeth, so there won’t be any discomfort once your veneers are placed. Once your veneers are placed, any damage or discoloration you’ve been experiencing will be completely repaired and concealed. Your smile will look naturally beautiful again!  

What To Expect From Your Veneers

The Benefits of Veneers

Veneers are extremely versatile. They can be used to correct almost any cosmetic issue. They also look and feel just like a natural part of your smile because they are made from porcelain, which mimics the appearance of tooth enamel. 

Veneers do not require any special care—simply brush and floss normally, and see Dr. Perry for regular cleanings and oral exams every six months. Since they are extremely stain-resistant and durable, you can expect your veneers to last 10–15 years or longer, making them a great long-term option for cosmetic dentistry.

What Can Veneers Treat?

Veneers are a very flexible dental tool that can solve a surprising number of dental problems, including all of the following:

  • Chipped teeth. Veneers can be custom-shaped to fill in any missing material after you’ve chipped a tooth. A veneer will completely repair the damage and restore your tooth to its natural state.
  • Cracked teeth. A badly cracked tooth might require a crown or other dental tool, but a superficial crack can be smoothed over with a veneer. Your veneer will keep the crack from getting worse and will hide the crack itself from sight.
  • Stained teeth. If your teeth are uniformly dull or discolored, teeth whitening might be the best choice for you. If you only have one or two teeth that are stained or discolored, you can conceal those stains completely with veneers and make your smile white again.
  • Misshapen teeth. If you have a tooth that is too small or mildly crooked, a custom-made veneer can subtly reshape that tooth. Because we are able to customize your veneer so precisely, we can use those veneers to make your tooth just the right shape. 
  • A gappy smile. Gappy smiles are often the result of teeth that are too small or just have too much space in between them. By applying veneers to these teeth, we can subtly fill in those gaps and reduce the gaps in your smile.

If you’re experiencing any of these dental issues, veneers can help. You’ll have a whiter, more beautiful smile, and you can repair superficial tooth damage at the same time.

The Veneers Process

Another benefit of veneers is that the process of receiving them is fairly straightforward and simple. With just a few appointments, you can have access to all the benefits of veneers.

Free Consultation‍

The veneers process begins with a free consultation at Perry Family Dentistry. During this appointment, Dr. Perry will assess your smile and determine whether you’re a good candidate for treatment based on your oral health, the position of your teeth, and a number of other factors.

Your free consultation is also a great opportunity to ask any questions you might have about veneers or the veneer process. We always look forward to sharing information with our patients, so feel free to ask anything you’re curious or concerned about. 

Preparation of Your Enamel‍

If you’re approved for veneers, the next step is preparing your teeth. At your next appointment, Dr. Perry will begin by numbing and cleaning the treatment area. Then, he will remove a thin layer (about 0.5mm) of enamel from each tooth that will receive a veneer.

Once this process is complete, he will take a 3D scan of your mouth and upload it to our CEREC machine. This state-of-the-art machine will then create your veneers in just a few minutes.‍

Attaching Your Veneers

Once your veneers have been built, Dr. Perry will check each one to make sure the fit is perfect on each tooth. Then, each veneer will be bonded into place permanently using a special dental cement, and your new smile will be buffed and polished. 

Because your veneers are permanently bonded to your teeth, all you’ll have to do is brush and floss your veneers as usual. You’ll leave our office with a long-lasting improved smile and a significant confidence boost!

Am I a Candidate for Veneers?

You are likely a good candidate for veneers if your mouth is healthy and free of oral issues like gum disease and tooth decay, and you do not have any major orthodontic problems. There are only a few reasons why your dentist might not recommend veneers, including the following:

  • You have untreated dental problems. Veneers can’t adhere to your teeth properly if there are underlying problems, and veneers can add a layer of difficulty to your dental treatment if you need a medical problem addressed.
  • You regularly clench or grind your teeth. Just like your natural teeth, veneers can break or be worn down by clenching and grinding. We recommend resolving any grinding or clenching before you receive veneers.
  • You have untreated gum disease. Gum disease can cause your gums to swell or recede, which will interfere with the way your veneer fits over your tooth. Treating your gum disease will improve your health, and you can still receive veneers in the future.
