If you’re looking to revitalize your smile, dental veneers are a simple option. The best type of dentist to choose for cosmetic dental procedures such as veneers, is a prosthodontist, like Dr. Tyler. As a Certified Dental Technician (CDT) before he became a dentist, Dr. Tyler gained invaluable experience, working several years in a dental lab. Tooth anatomy, contours, and esthetics are strengths of both CDTs and prosthodontists.

What are Dental Veneers?

Veneers are custom-made thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain, ceramic, or composite resin bonded over the front (visible) part of the tooth. They are used to modify the color, shape, size, or length of teeth. Veneers may be used to restore a single tooth, or in most cases, multiple upper front teeth to create a beautiful bright “Hollywood” type of smile makeover. Veneers allow dramatic smile improvements with a minimally invasive approach.

What can Veneers do for you?

Veneers allow you to get your desired smile quickly, with no or minimal orthodontic treatment. Veneers can be used to correct a wide range of dental issues, such as:

  • Teeth that are stained and can’t be lightened by tooth whitening (bleaching).
  • Chipped or worn teeth causing an aged appearance of your smile.
  • Crooked or misshapen teeth.
  • Uneven spaces or large gaps between the upper front teeth.

The benefits of Porcelain Veneers

  • Less tooth enamel needs to be removed than with a crown.
  • They are stronger, more wear-resistant, and longer-lasting than composite resin veneers.
  • They have a more natural-looking surface than composite resin veneers.
  • They don’t stain as easily as composite resin veneers.

The benefits of Composite Resin Veneers

  • Usually less tooth needs to be removed than for crowns or porcelain veneers.
  • They are less expensive than porcelain veneers.
  • They can be repaired easily and quickly, although they are not as strong or wear-resistant as porcelain veneers.

How are

Veneers applied?

First, a veneer shade best for your smile is chosen with your desires in mind. Next, a small amount of tooth structure must be removed to avoid making the tooth look big and bulky. The tooth preparation is limited to the enamel and usually involves only the front and sides of the tooth.

If composite resin veneers are chosen, they are bonded and sculpted directly in your mouth during a single appointment. The veneers are smoothed and polished to look like natural teeth.

If porcelain veneers are chosen, an impression or digital scan is made to provide an exact model for the dental lab-fabrication of your custom-made porcelain veneers. The lab waiting period may take several days. Temporary veneers are made for you to wear in the meantime. At the second visit, the temporary veneers are removed and the teeth are cleaned. Finally, the lab made veneers are adjusted and bonded to the tooth.

How long do Veneers last?

On average, veneers tend to last between 5 and 15 years. The lifespan of veneers depends on your commitment to at-home toothbrushing and flossing and professional dental hygiene visits, and other oral habits, like teeth grinding. In many cases, a night guard or occlusal appliance is indicated to protect your veneers from future complications.
