Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are extremely thin shells of porcelain or resin that are permanently affixed to the front of your teeth. They’re a popular cosmetic fix for many common imperfections like discoloration, chips, and cracks.

Chusid Dental Group uses porcelain veneers to perfect the smiles of men and women of all ages. Porcelain is a great option for veneers because it mimics the look of natural tooth enamel and is stain resistant.

When you get veneers from the dentists at Chusid Dental Group, you can expect a natural-looking, beautiful smile. Your veneers are custom-created for you. You’ll work with your dentist to choose the right color, shape, and size for your mouth and your teeth. 

Are veneers a good option for my teeth?

If you’re bothered by cosmetic flaws in your smile, veneers could be right for you. At Chusid Dental Group, the dentists offer personalized veneers for men and women who want to have more beautiful smiles.

Veneers can improve the look of many common cosmetic issues, including:

  • Discoloration
  • Chips and cracks
  • Gaps
  • Damaged teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Irregularly shaped teeth
  • Short, gummy teeth
  • Normal wear-and-tear

Depending on your smile, veneers can be applied to the fronts of all your visible teeth or just one tooth. Veneers are a customizable treatment to give you the smile you’ve always wanted.

What is the procedure for getting veneers?

The process for getting veneers takes a few visits to the Chusid Dental Group office. During your first visit, your dentist performs an exam and takes impressions of your teeth. These impressions are sent to a dental lab and they’re used to create your custom veneers.

The team prepares your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel from the fronts of your teeth. When a small amount of enamel is removed, the veneers can sit flush against the teeth for a beautiful look.

When your veneers return from the dental lab, you’ll come back for veneer placement. The team checks the fit of each veneer and affixes it to your tooth with special dental cement. The veneers are trimmed to ensure a natural bite and appearance.

Veneers are a permanent cosmetic procedure. When you have veneers, you’ll brush and floss your teeth as you would normally. Expect veneers to last between seven and 10 years, and be sure to continue getting regular dental cleanings to preserve the health of your mouth.

A picture-perfect smile can be a reality with the help of veneers. Find out what veneers could do for you by calling the office for more information.
