Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are porcelain overlays cemented to the front surface of your teeth. They’re no thicker than a contact lens, but make dramatic changes to your smile and protect your teeth from damage.

Veneers are a permanent cosmetic solution but don’t require a lot of time to apply. The whole process of getting veneers is noninvasive with fabulous, smile-enhancing results.

Why should I consider dental veneers?

Veneers can help improve your relationship with your smile. They correct common issues, such as:

  • Discolored or yellowing teeth that are unresponsive to traditional whitening methods
  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Minor misalignments

The doctors at Revive Dentistry customize veneers to your teeth’s shape, color, and length. Veneers are resistant to staining, so your smile stays bright and beautiful.

What is the process of getting dental veneers?

The doctors at Revive Dentistry thoroughly examine your smile and oral health to determine if veneers are a good choice. They can help you envision how veneers will improve your look, should you decide to have the procedure done.

Before the veneers can be applied, the dentists must shave off a very fine layer of your existing enamel. This leaves space for the overlay to fit without crowding your teeth. Customized veneers made from a mold of your mouth adhere to your teeth using a light-sensitive resin. A specialized light causes this resin to harden.

How do I care for veneers?

Your regular, healthy oral hygiene habits keep your veneers looking and feeling their best. Floss daily and brush at least two times a day. Keep up with your professional cleanings to help preserve the life of your veneers.

With good care, veneers can last for as long as 15 years. After that, you will need them to be replaced to maintain your look.
