Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that fit over the top of natural teeth that are:

  • Discolored
  • Crooked
  • Gapped
  • Too small 
  • Weak
  • Cracked
  • Chipped
  • Imperfect 
  • Misshapen

Veneers are custom-fit to give you the perfect smile you dream of without invasive procedures or downtime. They are strong and long-lasting when you care for them properly.

Are veneers right for me?

To find out if veneers are a good match for you, your cosmetic dentist at Wakim Cosmetic and Family Dental Group examines your teeth and gums and reviews your medical history. 

They take dental X-rays and let you know if you require gum disease or tooth decay treatment, such as fillings, inlays, or onlays, prior to veneer placement. If you have severe decay, you might need a crown or root canal before veneer placement.

The goal is to make sure your oral health is at its best, so there are no complications later on with your veneers.

What happens while getting veneers?

When you arrive at Wakim Cosmetic and Family Dental Group for veneers, your dentist prepares your teeth. They remove a tiny amount of enamel from the front and side of each tooth. Your provider digitally scans your teeth and sends the information to a dental lab, where technicians create new, custom-fit veneers.

When the veneers are ready, you come back to the Wakim Cosmetic and Family Dental Group office, where your dentist permanently bonds veneers to your natural teeth. The procedure is painless and fast but can produce dramatic aesthetic results.

How should I care for veneers?

Avoid chewing on ice and other hard objects, and ask your dentist about wearing a night guard when you sleep if you grind your teeth to protect your veneers from chipping.

Brush your teeth at least two times every day and floss daily. See the experts at Wakim Cosmetic and Family Dental Group for routine dental exams and cleanings every 3-6 months, and call the office if your veneers get damaged.
