How Can Veneers Benefit Me?

Sep 26, 2019

At Gregory P. Bialek, DDS, PA Cosmetic and General Dentistry, we understand that even the slightest flaw in your teeth can detract from your smile. We are proud to offer quality cosmetic dentistry procedures, including dental veneers, to mask any imperfections and deliver your perfect smile.

What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are wafer-thin porcelain or composite resin sheaths that fit over the visible surfaces of your teeth to mask any imperfections. They instantly correct the color, shape, length, or size of teeth, strengthening them, and improving their appearance. Veneers are mainly used for cosmetic purposes, but can also be used to address dental problems such as an uneven bite or to protect the surfaces of worn or damaged teeth, similar to dental crowns. 

How Can Veneers Perfect Your Smile?

Veneers are the cosmetic treatment of choice to improve the appearance of teeth that are stained, discolored, cracked, broken, chipped, gapped, or misaligned. They can be closely color and texture matched to your teeth, with beautiful, natural results. Dental veneers are durable, lasting 15 years or more with proper care.

How Are Dental Veneers Prepared?

You will typically need two appointments to place your veneers. During your first visit, we will remove a very thin layer of tooth enamel to make room for your new restorations. Next, we will take an impression of your mouth to create a unique model of your teeth, which is sent to our dental technician to custom-make your veneers. In the meantime, we will fit you with temporary veneers to protect your teeth.

During a follow-up visit, we will place your veneers and will check for a perfect fit. We will make any needed adjustments, and we will bond them to your teeth. You’ll be amazed at the dramatic transformation of your smile!

Caring for Your Veneers

You will need to maintain proper oral hygiene practices, including daily brushing and flossing. Make sure to schedule your dental exams and cleanings every six months to keep your teeth and restorations healthy and sound. Refrain from biting down on hard foods or objects, or using your teeth as tools to protect your dental veneers as well as your natural teeth. We also recommend that you avoid coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco to maintain the beauty of your new smile.
