Veneers Q & A

by Alan Horlick, DDS

Veneers are a cosmetic dentistry service that enhances the appearance of the teeth. Veneers create brighter and more uniform teeth that fit the look of your mouth when you have discoloration, worn or uneven teeth, or alignment issues.

What Are Veneers?

Ceramic veneers are thin shells of durable ceramic (porcelain) material that can be used to address a wide variety of cosmetic defects, including deep staining or discoloration in the interiors of teeth, gaps between teeth, crooked teeth, cracked and chipped teeth, teeth with worn or uneven edges, and teeth that look too small. Ceramic veneers can be custom-tinted and designed to blend beautifully with your natural teeth, making them a very popular options for patients looking to achieve a beautiful, healthy-looking smile.

How Are Veneers Applied?

When veneers are going to be used, the tooth must first be prepared. The tooth will be cleaned, and a small layer will be shaved down to make room for the veneer. This ensures that the veneer will lie flat next to the surrounding teeth. An impression of the tooth will be made and sent to a lab where the veneer will be fabricated. A temporary veneer is frequently placed on the tooth to protect it between visits. During the second visit, the permanent veneer will be bonded to the person’s tooth using a special adhesive. The veneer will then be buffed to ensure it looks natural and fits flush with the other teeth.

What Types of Veneers Are Available?

Dr. Horlick offers Dental Lumineers, which are designed and manufactured to resemble natural teeth as closely as possible. This makes your dental veneer treatment look authentic. Each Lumineers veneer has a translucent hue and shading process that mimics the appearance of true enamel. Each patient can choose exactly the color he or she wants for the dental veneers, providing customized results. Dr. Horlick will work with each patient to choose the shape and size of the Lumineers that best enhance the natural smile while also correcting the areas of concern, such as shorter teeth, gaps between teeth, or chipped enamel.
