What Are Dental Veneers

Before we get too ahead of ourselves, let’s take a step back and talk about what dental veneers are. Simply put, a veneer is a layer of material placed over a tooth to improve the appearance of a smile and to protect the tooth’s surface from damage. There are two common types of material used for veneers; composite and dental porcelain. At Concord Smile, we use porcelain. The porcelain veneer gives the tooth or teeth you are wanting to improve a natural look and feel that mother nature failed to provide you.

How The Process Works

Common reasons people decide to move forward with dental veneers are due to defects of a natural tooth that they want covered up or to mask a dark tooth. If dental veneers is something you’re interested in, you will go in for a consultation and talk to your dentist about what you like and don’t like about your smile. At this point, they will provide you with the options you have to choose from to turn your frown upside down.

From there, you will have an appointment to prepare your teeth for the veneers. During this process, the dentist will shave a few millimeters off the teeth that are receiving the veneer to allow for better bonding during the placement. Also at this appointment, the dentist will collaborate with you to find the perfect shade of white that you’re wanting for a natural looking smile.

Now, it’s time for the veneers! Your dentist will check to make sure the dental veneers will fit properly on your natural teeth and then bond the porcelain to your teeth.

You’re almost done! A few weeks after you have the veneers placed on your teeth, you will need to go in for a follow-up appointment to ensure that everything went according to plan. This is also a great time to ask any questions you have before going out into the world with your bright, new smile.
