What are dental veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain shells that are bonded to your teeth to help reduce the appearance of unwanted aesthetic issues. The dental veneers can be customized to fit the shape, size, length, and color of your natural teeth. Porcelain veneers can fix many aesthetic issues, such as:

  • Chipped teeth

  • Crooked teeth

  • Staining or discoloration

  • Uneven shape

  • Gapped teeth

  • Spacing issues

  • Other aesthetic dental issues

Dr. Oh can help you fix aesthetic issues within your smile that bother you, and it may be time for you to contact our office.

What should I know about dental veneers?

To get porcelain veneers, your teeth and oral health need to be in overall good condition. This means that if you have tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, or other infections, it is important that they are treated before you start your dental veneer process. You may not be a good candidate for dental veneers if you grind your teeth, as this can damage the veneers. You should also avoid chewing on hard objects like ice, pens, and fingernails. There are many benefits to porcelain veneers, such as:

  • An improvement in the appearance of your smile, teeth, and mouth

  • Veneers are low maintenance and require only an oral hygiene routine to stay in good condition

  • They allow you a brighter and whiter smile in just a few easy steps

  • The removal of your enamel is minor and not harmful in the long run

How do dental veneers work?

After a consultation with Dr. Oh where you will talk about your smile goals and other concerns, you will decide on a treatment plan together. Physical or digital impressions of your teeth will be made so that veneers can be created for you. Once your porcelain veneers are ready, Dr. Oh will carefully take off a small amount of enamel from your teeth. Then, the veneers will be bonded to your teeth. Small adjustments can be made to ensure you are comfortable and that your smile looks aesthetically pleasing. To keep your veneers looking great, you should have a good oral hygiene routine. This should include:

  • Brushing at least twice a day

  • Flossing

  • Using mouthwash

  • Attending dental exams and cleanings twice a year
