Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped coverings that are permanently sealed to the front of your visible teeth. They’re an easy and effective way to hide cosmetic defects in your teeth and improve the appearance of your smile.

Veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available. Patients love how radically they transform their smile with such a quick and minimally invasive procedure. 

What materials are used to make veneers?

Porcelain or composite resin is usually what makes up your veneers. Both materials interact with light similarly to your natural tooth enamel and come in a variety of shades that you can choose to match the rest of your smile.

Both of those qualities mean that your veneers look incredibly natural in your mouth, giving you the ability to perfect your smile while making sure that it still looks uniquely yours. 

How do veneers improve my smile?

Veneers effectively give you an entirely new smile as far as appearances are concerned. By covering up the entire front-facing portion of your teeth, they can improve a variety of cosmetic defects. Veneers can enhance teeth that are:

  • Cracked
  • Chipped
  • Discolored 
  • Worn down
  • Too small
  • Widely spaced
  • Misshapen
  • Crooked

Veneers give you the ability to totally redesign your teeth’s aesthetics, finally giving you the smile you’ve always dreamed of.

What’s involved with getting veneers?

The team at Greene Street Dental uses ultra-thin veneers. Because these veneers are as thin as contact lenses, the team can bond them to your smile without having to drill or remove enamel from your teeth. 

This means that your veneers procedure is painless, won’t require any shots or anesthesia, and won’t necessitate you wearing temporary veneers while you wait for a permanent set to come back from an offsite lab. 

After you and the team select a size, shape, and color for your veneers that best enhance your smile and complements your face, the team lightly polishes your teeth and slightly recontours some of your tooth enamel. 

That’s all that’s needed to make room for the veneers in your mouth and bond them to your smile. With proper care, your veneers can last up to 20 years.
