Veneers Q & A

How can veneers improve my smile?

Veneers are wafer-thin porcelain covers for your teeth that hide just about any smile blemish you may have. Your customized set of veneers can improve your smile by:

  • Closing up small gaps or cracks
  • Covering stains or discoloration
  • Resolving mildly crooked teeth 
  • Correcting misshapen teeth 

Veneers are the fastest and often most efficient way to completely transform your teeth, plus they are stain-resistant, so you can start smiling with confidence. 

What is the process of getting veneers?

The entire process is quick and easy, and treatments are virtually painless. When you visit New Family Dental for a veneers consultation, your dentist examines your teeth and bite and talks with you about your concerns to let you know how veneers can benefit you.

During your next appointment, they prep your teeth for veneers (sometimes this can be done the same day as your consultation). This step involves removing a very thin layer of enamel from each of your teeth, so your veneers lie flush against your teeth and along your gum line. 

Your dentist gathers molds of your teeth and designs temporary veneers on the spot. These temporary veneers protect your teeth while the dental lab formulates your formal set of veneers.  

Within about two to three weeks, your new set of veneers arrive at New Family Dental, and you can come back in to have them bonded into place. Your dentist spends time ensuring each of your veneers are comfortable, so you can leave the office that day with your gleaming new smile.

Are veneers permanent? 

The process of getting veneers is permanent, simply because you’re going to lose some tooth enamel and are going to always need protective covers over your teeth. But the individual veneers themselves do wear down over time.

Your veneers can last for 10-15 years and sometimes even longer with good oral hygiene practices. The dental experts at New Family Dental spend time educating you about how to care for your veneers, so your new smile can last for years to come.
