An Introduction To Veneers

Over the years, veneers have grown in popularity and are becoming increasingly more commonplace, especially among avid social media users. But what are veneers, what do they do, and how can you get some of your own? At White Oak Dental & Orthodontics, we believe in helping patients make informed decisions about their dental health. Below is an introduction to veneers so that you can have all the facts before you make the irreversible decision to receive the cosmetic procedure.

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are custom-made, thin shells. They serve as a cosmetic solution to enhance the appearance of one’s smile. Veneers can modify their color, shape, size, or length by covering the teeth.

What Are The Benefits Of Veneers?

Dental veneers are versatile tools in cosmetic dentistry, adept at rectifying a range of dental imperfections. Here are some of the common issues that veneers can cover up:

  • Stains and Discoloration
  • Chips and Cracks
  • Misshapen Teeth
  • Mild Misalignment
  • Gaps Between Teeth

So, What Are The Different Types?

Various materials and material blends, such as resin, composite, and ceramic, can make veneers. However, most dental professionals prefer porcelain veneers because of their resemblance to the natural translucence of tooth enamel.

White Oak Dental & Orthodontics uses high-quality porcelain veneers for a seamless blend with the surrounding teeth. The porcelain provides an aesthetically pleasing result that is resistant to staining, guaranteeing the longevity of the desired shade.

Our porcelain veneers are ideal for most patients, but our team can help determine if you should consider other materials or options like removable, palatal, and cantilever veneers. Which type is best depends heavily on your dental health and lifestyle!

Do you require extra strength or want the thinnest possible option? Do you need removable veneers, or should yours be anchored down? These are just a few of the potential questions you must think about!

How Do You Get Veneers?

The journey to a transformed smile through veneers is tailored to each individual’s unique dental needs. It’s meticulous but so rewarding to experience as a patient and provider! At White Oak Dental & Orthodontics, we have perfected a veneer process that is efficient and effective. Here’s a step-by-step general overview of what to expect:

  • Initial Consultation: The process begins with a comprehensive consultation. Dr. Aquino will assess the condition of your teeth, discuss your aesthetic goals, and determine if veneers are the right choice for you. If necessary, they’ll help you resolve any issues that will hinder the safety or effectiveness of your veneer experience.
  • Tooth Preparation: A small amount of enamel is gently removed from the tooth’s surface to make space for the veneer and create a natural look and feel. This step is what makes the decision of veneers irreversible.
  • Impression Taking: This serves as a blueprint for making your custom veneers. It allows for precise design and excellent fitting.
  • Creation of Veneers: A dental laboratory with skilled technicians crafts the veneers from high-quality porcelain. This process may take a few weeks.
  • Temporary Veneers: While waiting on your custom veneers, we’ll protect the prepared teeth and maintain aesthetics with temporary veneers.
  • Bonding of Permanent Veneers: Once the porcelain veneers are ready, they are carefully bonded to the teeth. We make adjustments as necessary to ensure comfort, fit, and bite alignment.
