Veneers

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin porcelain shells crafted using tooth-colored materials and designed to cover natural teeth that are:

  • Stained
  • Chipped
  • Decayed
  • Crooked
  • Gapped
  • Twisted
  • Overlapping

Veneers are custom-made just for you in a dental lab to perfectly match your existing teeth. Veneers can restore or completely change the aesthetics of your smile to one you’re proud to show off.

What should I expect during veneer placement?

If you’re interested in veneers to restore damaged or aesthetically unappealing teeth, schedule a free consultation at Dr. K Dental to find out if they’re a good match for you. If so, your dentist prepares your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel from them to accommodate the new veneers.

Your provider makes a model of your teeth and sends it to a dental lab, where a dental technician individually sculpts your custom veneers. Veneers look just like natural teeth; the high-tech materials resist coffee, tea, and cigarette stains. Once your veneers are ready, you’ll come back to the office so your dentist can cement them to your teeth where they remain permanently.

About a week after veneer placement, you’ll return to Dr. K Dental for a follow-up appointment, which is vital for the future of your oral health. Your dentist may fit you with a bite guard to wear at night if you clench or grind your teeth, to avoid damaging the veneers. With proper care, veneers can last up to10 years or more with proper care.

How should I care for my new veneers?

You’ll care for veneers as you would with your natural teeth. It’s simple to maintain them by:

  • Brushing twice daily
  • Flossing every day
  • Using a toothpaste containing fluoride
  • Avoiding chewing on ice, hard candies, or popcorn kernels
  • Not opening packages with your teeth
  • Attending regular dental cleanings and exams

Your dentist might polish your veneers with a specially formulated paste. ​ Your dentist will examine your natural teeth and veneers periodically to check for potential problems.
