Why Veneers?

Veneers are a permanent, natural-looking, smile solution. They don’t require denture cement. They don’t slip and slide, and they don’t impact your ability to eat or speak.

Veneers are also custom made for you. You can talk about specific smile goals, pick a color, and get results as unique as you are. We work hard to make sure you get exactly the right smile for you at A Family Dental Center.

They also don’t require any special maintenance or care after you have them installed. You should still brush your teeth twice a day, use floss regularly, and make cleaning appointments with your dentist. Almost nothing about your routine needs to change after you get your veneers.

Veneers are made from a very thin layer of shaped porcelain, colored and designed to look like natural teeth. They’re applied directly over your teeth, and you can get as many or as few veneers as you want and need.

If one veneer gets damaged pre-maturely, you can have that single veneer replaced. It’s not like dental appliances that need to be re-made if a small part of the appliance breaks.

With proper care, veneers can last for years. They look and feel like your natural teeth. Only you and your dentist will know.

What to Expect

There are three basic phases in getting veneers. You have the consultation and temporary veneer stage. This is where you and your dentist collaborate to design the perfect veneers for you. You’ll discuss goals, concerns, color, and more during this phase.

You’ll also receive a temporary set of veneers. These are thicker than permanent veneers but give you a sense of what your smile can look like. After a short time in the temporaries, you and your dentist will make final adjustments and corrections for your permanent set.

Then you’ll come in for the second stage, getting your permanent veneers. Plan on the actual appointment taking several hours, since each veneer needs to be carefully placed and the bonding cement needs to cure before you leave.

The last phase is the maintenance phase. This is when you return to your regular dental habits, with some minor modifications like avoiding chewing ice and treat your veneers as normal teeth.
