Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin porcelain coverings that your dentist places over your natural teeth to improve the appearance of smile flaws, such as:

  • Cracks
  • Chips
  • Gaps in your smile
  • Discoloration
  • Crooked teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Erosion from teeth grinding

Porcelain, the material veneers are made of, is extremely sturdy and can be made to closely resemble the shade of your natural teeth.

How do veneers work?

At Creative Dentistry of Brooklyn Heights, each set of veneers is custom-made to fit snugly and provide you with the smile you desire. Getting veneers typically requires at least a couple visits.

At your first visit, your dentist takes impressions of your teeth, which are used to make your veneers — the veneers themselves are made at an outside dental lab. Once your veneers are ready, you come back in for a follow-up visit to have your veneers placed.

When you come back in, your dentist bonds your veneers onto your teeth using a special dental adhesive. In some cases, your dentist may need to file down your teeth slightly to make sufficient room for your veneers. You’ll also schedule another follow-up so that your dentist can monitor your progress with your new veneers.

What are the benefits of veneers?

With veneers, your new smile will provide you with a valuable boost of self-confidence. You can also continue eating and drinking the foods you like without worrying about damage to your veneers. The porcelain material is durable enough to function like healthy, natural teeth.

Veneers can boost the function and appearance of your smile with a polished, uniform look. Porcelain is stain resistant, so you don’t have to worry about your veneers darkening over time.

How long do veneers last?

With proper care, your veneers can last around 10 years or more. Make sure to brush your teeth and treat them like natural teeth. Also, it’s important to maintain regular visits with your dentist so they can monitor any wear and tear and make any necessary adjustments over time.
