posted in: Cosmetic Dentistry | 0

If you are searching for ways to improve the appearance of your teeth, you should consider dental veneers. You may have heard of them being referred to as ‘porcelain veneers’ or ‘dental porcelain laminates.’ Whatever term is used to describe them, they are all thin, customized, shell of tooth-colored material designed to be placed over the surface of the teeth. Dental professionals can change their color, shape, and size as needed. So if you want to achieve your dream smile, dental veneers are a highly efficient way of creating the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.

To help you learn more about dental veneers, we at Cherokee Smiles have compiled five interesting facts about them! Read on to find out things about dental veneers that you may have never known before.

Veneers provide permanent results

When installing dental veneers, the size of your teeth will be reduced for the veneers to do their job. Doing something like this cannot be reversed in treatment. Thus, you must keep in mind that having dental veneers is a lifelong commitment. 

It takes a minimum of one week to make them

Once the shape of your teeth has been captured, it can take up to an entire week for the dental veneers to be made. This is because the veneers are made in a laboratory and are designed to target your teeth’s different issues. 

It can take too long to place them

A visit to install dental veneers can last for multiple hours as this amount of time is required to accurately place the veneers with a light-sensitive resin that is then hardened using a white light. This is a required process to bond the veneers to your teeth. 

Veneers are strong

It is a common question for patients who are getting veneers to ask what they can eat afterward. Veneers are very strong and can resist most of the forces of any diet.

Temporary sensitivity to temperature will be felt

When the dental veneers have been placed on your teeth, you will most likely feel a heightened sensitivity to hot and cold food and beverages—a result of removing a small part of tooth enamel. If you experience this, it is a normal sensation that will fade after some time.
