Veneers are very thin shells, typically made of porcelain or resin, that are bonded to the front of your teeth to enhance the beauty of your smile. Our dentist may recommend dental veneers to correct several types of smile imperfections. Porcelain veneers are an excellent choice for enhancing your smile because the color and translucence of porcelain is a great match for the natural appearance of tooth enamel. Porcelain is stain resistant as well, so your smile will stay bright for years to come. Resin veneers can also be matched to your natural tooth color. With dental veneers, you can achieve a beautiful, natural-looking smile that you will love to show off.
Our dentist may recommend dental veneers if you would like to improve the appearance of your smile. Custom-made veneers can be used for just one tooth or for your entire smile. We may suggest veneers to:
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain bonded to the front of your permanent teeth. They correct minor imperfections that won’t respond to other types of treatment like teeth whitening or orthodontics.
The number of veneers you get depends on your individual needs. If you crack or damage a single tooth, your provider might recommend one. If all of the teeth at the front of your mouth are stained, they might recommend a series of six or eight.
Ontario Chino Dental Center uses veneers to correct minor oral imperfections, including:
You might also benefit from veneers if you have noticeable spaces between two or more teeth.
At Ontario Chino Dental Center, getting veneers takes two appointments about a week apart.
Before recommending veneers, your provider conducts an oral exam and asks what you like and don’t like about your smile. Afterward, they take oral X-rays to assess the location and condition of your teeth.
If there are no cavities or gum disease present, your provider administers a local anesthetic and prepares your teeth to receive the veneers. They carefully remove a thin layer of enamel and then take high-resolution digital impressions with an intraoral scanner. Then, your provider sends the impressions to a dental laboratory.
The technicians at the dental laboratory use your impressions to design and manufacture a set of custom veneers.
When the techs at the dental laboratory complete your veneers, you return to Ontario Chino Dental Center. Your provider once again administers a local anesthetic and bonds the veneers to your permanent teeth. Then, they remove any excess material, polish your veneers, and provide care instructions.
Veneers last an average of 12-15 years, but it’s possible to extend their lifespan with preventive dentistry. The providers recommend brushing and flossing twice daily and visiting Ontario Chino Dental Center once every six months for an oral exam and professional teeth cleaning.
To keep your veneers in optimal condition, avoid bad habits like chewing on ice, biting your nails, or opening plastic packaging with your teeth.
