What is a Veneer?

Porcelain veneers are thin, hard shells that attach directly to your teeth. These shells can cover or correct a large variety of imperfections in your smile. In addition, each veneer is customized to match the unique size, shape, and color of your teeth. As a result, they’re virtually impossible to differentiate from the rest of your smile, making them the perfect cosmetic addition to enhance your confidence.

Veneers offer many benefits besides aesthetic improvement and can be completed in just two quick, simple appointments. Millions of people get veneers affixed every year because of the convenience of the procedure and the excellent quality of the results.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers offer patients several advantages, including: 

  • A non-invasive procedure
  • Quick appointments
  • Personalized treatment plan
  • Custom-made, color-matched product
  • Durable, built-to-last
  • Stain-resistant
  • Long-lasting 

Reasons for Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are so popular because of their versatility. They can benefit patients whose teeth are:

  • Discolored, stained, or yellowed
  • Cracked, chipped, or broken
  • Misaligned 
  • Worn-down 
  • Unevenly spaced 
  • Missized or misshapen 

The Porcelain Veneers Process

Another reason why patients love porcelain veneers is the ease with which they can be applied. The whole process of porcelain veneer application is relatively quick and non-invasive. You won’t require anesthesia unless you have especially sensitive gums. 

Enhancing your smile with veneers only requires two visits to our Hewitt office. The first step is a consultation with one of our doctors, where they will examine your oral health and decide if porcelain veneers are the right option for you. If so, we’ll take precise digital impressions of your mouth and send them to the lab, where they’ll create your customized veneers. This step usually takes about two weeks.

Once the lab completes your veneers, we’ll schedule a second appointment and complete the procedure. We’ll ensure that the fit and color of your veneers are perfect before using a special dental adhesive to bond them securely to your teeth. Once they’re in place, you’ll be ready to show off your stunning new smile.

Caring For Your Veneers

After your placement, we’ll likely have you come back a few weeks later for a follow-up appointment. We’ll check on the condition of your veneers and ensure that they’re functioning well and fitting comfortably.

To make sure your veneers last as long as possible, it’s pivotal to care for them diligently. Fortunately, this is a fairly straightforward process that’s very similar to caring for your natural teeth. 

To preserve your porcelain veneers, practice regular oral hygiene by brushing twice a day, flossing at least once daily, and using mouthwash after meals. We also recommend using a non-abrasive toothpaste and reducing your intake of staining drinks like coffee and wine to preserve the veneers’ appearance. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the veneers procedure painful?

Your dentist will administer a local anesthetic to numb your teeth and gums before the procedure, ensuring you won’t feel any pain. You may experience mild discomfort right after treatment, but this will fade within a few hours. 

How long do veneers last?

With proper care, veneers typically last for seven to fifteen years. To help them last longer, avoid potentially damaging habits such as chewing on ice cubes or biting your fingernails. 

How many appointments does the procedure require? 

Only two appointments are needed to enhance your smile with veneers. After your first visit, it typically takes about two weeks to customize your veneers so they blend in seamlessly with your smile. Once they’re ready, you can return to our office to complete the procedure. 

Does dental insurance cover veneers?

Veneers are a cosmetic treatment — unfortunately, this means most insurance providers won’t cover them. However, there are some exceptions depending on your plan. 

What if my veneer falls off or is damaged? 

If your veneer gets damaged or falls out, do your best to keep it clean and call our practice right away. Don’t attempt to fix the veneer yourself, as this may lead to further damage. 

Do veneers work for crooked teeth?

Yes! Veneers are often used to help crooked teeth appear straighter.
