Dental Veneers

Veneers are small caps placed on the front of your teeth. They are generally used for front teeth, whereas crowns are used for larger molars and side teeth.

Veneers are often made out of porcelain, although there are many different kinds. They vary not only in material but also in thickness and durability. 

Your dentist can discuss with you and decide what works best for your particular needs and budget. Veneers also come in different shades, so you can select the one you desire.

Dental Veneers, Costs & Options

There’s nothing like a brilliant smile. But what happens if your teeth aren’t cooperating? Maybe you went through a root canal years back, and now your tooth has darkened. Or you cracked a tooth, and it no longer matches the rest of your front teeth. Whatever the reason, these are cosmetic issues that may not alter the alignment of your teeth, but they may affect your confidence.

Your smile should be something to boast about and be proud of, which is precisely why dental veneers may be the answer to your needs. With the help of ToothHQ, you have access to different veneer procedures and a team of dentists who specialize in the application of veneers, as well as financing options to offset the cost.

How Are Veneers Placed?

The dentist takes an initial mold of your teeth. You will bite down on a plaster-like material that leaves a perfect dental impression. Then, your dentist removes the mold, and it is used to make the veneers for your teeth. In this way, the veneers are not generic but made specifically for your mouth and teeth.

Before placing porcelain veneers, your dentist performs veneer shaving to get the teeth ready for the newly made cosmetic dentistry veneers. They remove the top layer of enamel, so it is flush with the rest of your teeth when applying the veneers. The level of enamel removed depends on the type of veneers you’re getting.

Temporary Veneers

Veneers aren’t made immediately. It takes a few days to create them specifically for you. In the meantime, the dentist applies temporary veneers.

These veneers look very much like the permanent ones. However, the gap between your veneer teeth is not separated, so you’ll have a single, temporary veneer applied over all of your teeth. Don’t worry, though; your dentist will carve in grooves so your teeth will still look real. Most people won’t realize you’re wearing temporary veneers.

The temporary dental veneers are removed when you come back to the dentist’s office. They are usually heat-sealed, so it is easy to warm them up and then crack them off. Do note that when the temp veneers are removed, they may smell just a bit. This is because you haven’t been able to brush under them for a week or so.

The individual veneers are now placed on your teeth. Your dentist will align all of the veneers before securing everything in the proper spot. From there, the gaps will be checked to make sure everything aligns properly, and your dentist may carve in some additional areas to make sure you have the best, perfect-fitting veneers.

Does Getting Veneers Hurt?

There is generally no pain. The removal of the enamel doesn’t hurt at all for most. However, if you have any irritation around the base of your teeth (where it comes in contact with the gums), you may experience a small amount of momentary pain.

Usually, it does not require any anesthesia. Although, if you do begin to feel uncomfortable, the dentist can provide anesthesia to eliminate discomfort. Besides removing the enamel, there are no other steps of the process that could be painful.

How Many Veneers Are Applied At Once?

This is up to you. However, it is generally recommended to consider more than one veneer. Veneers are placed on the front teeth. Despite the best effort to match the color of your current teeth and the veneer, there is often a slight difference. Plus, your teeth will change color over time, but the veneers will not react to teeth whitening. This makes it difficult to keep them both the same shade.

With all of this in mind, it is often recommended to place veneers at least on the front six (if not eight) teeth, especially on the top row. This keeps everything uniform and the same shade, although this is entirely your choice, and your dentist can explain the options.

Who Should Consider Dental Cosmetic Veneers?

There are many reasons why you might want to consider dental veneers. Perhaps you’re unhappy with a gap between your teeth. You may have had a root canal, and one of your teeth is discolored. Other teeth might be chipped, have cosmetic flaws, or have an irregular shape. These are all problems braces usually will not correct (and may be more expensive). Dental cosmetic veneers offer a faster and typically cheaper fix.

We also offer affordable financing and payment plans to cover the costs of veneers.

Dental Veneer Before and After Care

After getting your veneers, how should you care for them? The same way you would care for your regular teeth. You should still brush your teeth twice a day, floss at least once a day, and treat your veneers like teeth. After all, the back end of the veneers are still your teeth, and your root system remains in place.

Now, if you notice your veneers starting to fade, you can’t use whitening strips or other teeth whitening options, as this will not work on dental veneers. Instead, it would help to go into the dental office at ToothHQ, where we will polish the veneers. This removes the stains and helps restore them to their original look. Subsequently, you’ll always have a brilliant smile, regardless of how many of your teeth have veneers.

Dental Veneers Near Me

When it comes to improving your smile, one of the best fixes is dental veneers. These items are easily placed over your current teeth, so no tooth extractions or removals are necessary. This helps keep pain levels down and means a shorter recovery time. When you leave the dentist’s office after the final veneers are in place, you’ll be ready to show off your brilliant new smile.

I came here to take my wisdom teeth taken out. On the day of the procedure, the nurses were very welcoming. The doctor was also very careful and was very nice to talk to. I just came back from my post 2 week checkup surgery and I got to meet more of the amazing staff.

They are REALLY good here!!! After my surgery, I had a question so I called the # they gave me. I was expecting an answering service because it was a weekend. But to my surprise, the Dr. that actually did my surgery was the one that answered my call.. Everyone was so nice and went the extra mile to make sure I was taken care of and understood every step.. Thank y'all for everything 💖

No, dental veneers are not permanent. They are likely to be replaced at some point in life. Yet, if kept with routine dental care, patients do not have to worry about getting them replaced as they are long-lasting options.

This is one of the most asked questions about this cosmetic dentistry treatment. No, dental veneers don’t ruin your teeth as long as you take care of your veneers, which is quite easy to do.

On average, teeth veneers last 8 to 10 years, but they can last up to 20 years with good care.

Getting veneers is not a painful treatment as it does not involve any drilling and injections because no teeth are being cut. Yet, there are chances you may experience sensitivity during the settling down period after the final fitting.
