Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that help conceal certain smile flaws. With a set of veneers, you can hide cosmetic concerns and flaunt a vastly improved smile.

You should consider veneers if you have:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Gaps in your smile
  • Discolored or stained teeth
  • Crooked teeth

In many cases, getting front-teeth veneers can serve as a full mouth rehabilitation, simultaneously improving your appearance and oral health. They’re sturdy and durable enough to last and achieve optimal chewing, speaking, and digesting functions associated with natural teeth.

What is the process of getting veneers?

Initially, Dr. Fares takes comprehensive impressions of your teeth that are used to make your new veneers. He then files down your teeth slightly, reducing them in size using special dental tools. This gives your veneers enough room to fit.

An outside dental lab then custom-makes your veneers with specific instructions provided by Dr. Fares, such as the sizing and the exact shade. Your veneers look exactly like healthy, natural teeth. It typically takes 1-2 weeks to finish a new set of veneers. In the meantime, you will be fitted with temporary veneers.

You’ll then return for a follow-up visit for your permanent veneer fitting. Dr. Fares uses a special dental adhesive to bond your veneers to your natural teeth. This is a simple procedure that doesn’t take long and doesn’t require an anesthetic.

What are the benefits of veneers?

The boost in self-confidence you’ll experience with a new set of veneers is incredible. They completely change your appearance. Best of all, the process involves no forms of oral surgery or other invasive procedures.

Beyond the cosmetic benefits, veneers can help restore your oral health. Chips, cracks, and gaps often affect essential functions like chewing, speech, and digestion. Veneers restore these functions and improve your overall quality of life.

How long do veneers last?

Veneers can last 5-15 years, but the lifespan of a new set largely depends on you. Make sure to treat them just like your natural teeth. Continue brushing and flossing regularly, and maintain your regularly scheduled checkups to monitor your veneers.
