Veneers Q & A

by Aaron P. Diehl, DDS

What are veneers?

Veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry solution that helps you restore a natural, life-like appearance to your smile. They’re made of thin, durable porcelain and are custom-designed to sit snugly over the shape of your tooth.

Veneers can correct a number of different dental concerns, and they match the exact color of your natural teeth. With proper oral hygiene habits, veneers can last for several years.

Some patients may opt to get a veneer only on one tooth, while other people want multiple teeth covered to enhance the overall look of their smile.

What happens during a veneer procedure?

If you’re a good candidate for dental veneers, you'll usually need to schedule at least two visits with Dr. Diehl.

At your first appointment, Dr. Diehl lightly buffs and shapes the surface of the tooth or teeth that need veneers. He also takes impressions of your teeth so that he can design the right veneers for your needs and your cosmetic goals.

At your next appointment, Dr. Diehl cleans your teeth with a solution that helps the veneers bond to the surface of your teeth. Using bonding cement, he secures the veneer to the natural tooth, and may also use a specialized light to help activate this bonding process.

What can I expect after my procedure?

After your veneers appointment, you’ll check in with Dr. Diehl regularly to make sure the veneers are securely fastened to the tooth and are not causing any problems.

With good oral hygiene habits and routine dental visits, you can extend the life of your veneers and protect your smile.

What are the benefits of veneers?

Veneers can enhance the appearance and function of your smile, and they can correct minor cosmetic imperfections, including teeth that are:

  • Crooked or misshaped
  • Yellow or discolored
  • Too small or large
  • Chipped, cracked, or broken

Veneers can also help disguise gaps in your smile or uneven spaces between your teeth. If you’re ready to have a personalized dental consultation about how veneers can improve your smile and self-esteem, book an appointment with Pure Design Dentistry today by calling or scheduling online.
