Veneers Q&A

What are veneers?

Veneers are wafer-thin tooth-colored shells the team at Access Dental uses to cover up many smile flaws to improve your appearance. The shells are custom designed to meet your specific needs and goals and can change your teeth' shape, color, or size to create the perfect smile.

Will veneers make my teeth look better?

The team determines if veneers are the best choice for you during your cosmetic dentistry consultation. The simple cosmetic treatment can fix many smile concerns, including:

  • Discoloration
  • Gapped teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Crooked or misshapen teeth

Depending on your cosmetic needs and goals, the team uses veneers to fix one or several teeth. Veneers might also help to protect and strengthen your teeth, primarily when used to cover up cracks or chips.

Though veneers can fix many flaws, you may not be a good candidate for cosmetic treatment if you have active gum disease or grind your teeth.

In addition to veneers, Access Dental offers other dental cosmetic treatments, including teeth whitening. The team works with you to determine the best treatment that meets your goals and needs.

How long does the placement of veneers take?

Though veneers are a simple solution to cosmetic concerns, you might require at least two visits to the office to place them. 

During your first visit, the team shapes the surface of your tooth to create room for the thin shell and then takes a mold of your teeth, which is used to create your custom veneers.

Once your veneers are ready, the team has you return to the office to bond the shells to your teeth using a special dental cement and curing light. Once the veneers are secured to your teeth, the team carefully shapes them to make them look like natural teeth and improve your overall comfort.

How long do veneers last?

Veneers are built to last. Good oral hygiene allows your veneers to keep your smile flawless for several years. 

Access Dental recommends daily flossing and brushing and regular dental cleanings to prolong the life of your veneers. Chewing on ice can damage your veneers and should be avoided. If your veneers become damaged, the team can replace them, helping you maintain your flawless smile.
