Veneers Q & A

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are incredibly thin porcelain “shells” that fit over the surface of your teeth. They completely change the appearance of your smile and can correct numerous dental issues.

Veneers are completely customized to fit your smile and offer a natural, beautiful appearance. In fact, when you admire the gorgeous smiles of celebrities, you’re often admiring a great set of dental veneers.  

What can dental veneers do for my smile?

Dental veneers can address the following dental issues:

  • Discoloration
  • Shape irregularities
  • Worn down teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Fractured teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Misalignment

In addition to the aesthetic benefits, dental veneers also serve to strengthen and protect your teeth.

What is the process for getting dental veneers?

During your initial exam, Dr. Rewari determines if veneers are the best fit for your needs. She repairs any areas of decay prior to beginning the veneer process.

The first step involves gathering the imaging needed to map out your treatment plan. You’ll be able to see a representation of what your smile will look like after your veneers are in place.

Next, Dr. Rewari carefully removes a very small portion of your enamel to make room for the veneers. A local anesthetic can help keep you comfortable during this part of the process.

Dr. Rewari makes a set of impressions to send to the dental lab. The technicians use that information to create a set of custom veneers that blend perfectly with the shape and contours of your natural teeth. You receive a set of temporary veneers to wear until the permanent versions arrive.

At that point, Dr. Rewari checks the fit of your new veneers, making small adjustments as needed. Once you’re both comfortable with the fit and appearance, she cements the veneers into place, and your new smile is complete!

How long will my dental veneers last?

Your new dental veneers will last 7-15 years. Eventually, they’ll need to be replaced via a similar procedure.

You can extend the life of your new smile by taking care not to damage your veneers. Don’t bite down on hard foods, and never use your teeth as tools to open or pry things. It’s also important to maintain good dental hygiene habits.

To learn more about how dental veneers can improve the appearance of your smile, schedule a time to sit down with Dr. Rewari and discuss your specific dental needs.
