Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells that look like the front side of your teeth. The team at Dash Dental Spa custom-create your veneers so that they fit perfectly in your mouth, where they cover up any cosmetic imperfections you might have in your teeth to make for a perfectly beautiful and uniform new smile.

What do veneers do?

Veneers are typically used to fix front interior chipped teeth, but because they cover up the entire front side of your teeth, they’re effective at treating a wide range of conditions, like:

  • Cracks or fractures
  • Teeth that are significantly worn down
  • Discoloration that hasn’t responded to professional teeth whitening
  • Uneven, crooked, or misshapen teeth

You can also use veneers to close up any gaps between teeth, giving your smile a more even and uniform appearance.

What are the benefits of veneers?

Veneers have a number of benefits, including:

  • Long-lasting
  • Minimally invasive procedure
  • Stain-resistant 
  • Don’t have to remove as much tooth enamel as with a crown

Veneers are also incredibly natural-looking. They’re typically made from porcelain, which has a color and translucency that’s very similar to tooth enamel. 

Am I a candidate for veneers?

In order to be a viable candidate for veneers, you need to have healthy teeth and gums. If you have any tooth decay or gum disease, the team at Dash Dental Spa will need to treat it before you can get your veneers. 

If you habitually grind or clench your teeth (bruxism) your veneers might be more susceptible to breaking or cracking. The team at Dash Dental Spa can make you a custom-fitted mouthguard to wear while you sleep, which helps minimize the damage done by grinding and clenching.

What is involved with getting veneers?

Veneers typically require two appointments to successfully install. During your first appointment, you and your dentist select a size, shape, and color for your veneers that enhance your smile and complements your facial features.

Then, your dentist removes a thin layer of enamel from the front of your teeth. After your teeth are prepared, they take an impression of your mouth that they send to an offsite lab that fabricates your veneers.

While you wait for your permanent veneers to come back from the lab, you wear a temporary set for a week or two. Once your permanent set is ready, you come back to Dash Dental Spa for a second appointment.

Your dentist checks that they fit comfortably and look good, then seals them in place with dental cement. After your veneers are in place, you come back to Dash Dental Spa every three months for regular hygiene maintenance.
