Veneers Q & A

The Dental Touch

Why should I consider veneers?

Veneers are a very thin layer of porcelain that helps re-create the look of your natural teeth. One of the experienced cosmetic dentists at The Dental Touch custom fits each veneer to the individual teeth in your mouth and then bonds the veneers to your existing teeth. This minimally invasive procedure covers blemishes such as cracks, gaps, stains, or misshapen teeth. Veneers likewise help fortify delicate teeth.

Veneers can be constructed out of resin composite materials, but porcelain is the most stain-resistant material. Porcelain tends to do a better job replicating the look of your natural teeth enamel, too. One of the dental team members reviews your options and helps you select the best type of veneers for your needs.

How do I get veneers?

Following the initial consultation to review your desired results and the kind of veneers that are best for you, you return for a follow-up appointment. At this appointment, one of the professional cosmetic dental experts takes off a minuscule amount of enamel from the surface of your existing teeth to shape them in preparation for the veneers. Once your teeth are prepared, your dental practitioner takes a mold of your teeth to create your individualized veneers in the dental lab.

When the veneers arrive from the lab, you return to the office and have them custom-fitted to each of your teeth. After cleaning and etching the surface of your teeth to prepare them for the bonding process, the dental expert applies a special cement and light source that causes the adhesive to bond securely to the porcelain. In no time your veneers are permanently in place, and you have a new and improved smile!

Why should I get veneers?

Veneers improve crooked, broken, or misshapen teeth while maintaining the natural appearance of your teeth. They offer these benefits, too:

  • Resistance to stains
  • Well-tolerated by your gums
  • Can lighten darker teeth
  • Look great with no invasive dental work
  • Strengthen teeth
  • Less expensive than some other dental procedures like crowns
