Veneers Q&A

What are veneers?

Veneers cover the surfaces of teeth to correct discoloration and other imperfections. Veneers reshape your teeth and provide a bright and symmetrical smile while boosting confidence. Over time, teeth may become worn, chipped, and dull.

Veneers come in various materials to best suit an individual’s needs. Common veneer types include composite or porcelain. The team helps select the best material for you.

Are veneers noticeable?

Veneers blend in seamlessly with surrounding, pre-existing teeth thanks to innovative technology. The artificial teeth provide a natural finish while enhancing the appearance of your smile. 

Veneers shape around your teeth and gums during the design process to ensure a snug, yet comfortable, fit. This further enhances their natural appearance and makes them indistinguishable from other teeth.

Am I eligible for veneers?

You may be an ideal veneers candidate if you possess some of the following concerns:

  • Gaps between the teeth
  • Chipped and cracked teeth
  • Stubborn stains that don’t improve with teeth whitening
  • Small or misshapen teeth

It’s important to remember that veneers only offer a cosmetic solution and don’t remedy underlying ailments. Dr. Scherrer ensures optimal oral health before performing a veneer service. Conditions like gum disease or infected teeth pose detrimental health risks that the team must treat first. 

What can I expect during my appointment for veneers?

Dr. Scherrer first reshapes your teeth by removing small parts of your tooth’s enamel. This is permanent and, once performed, cannot be undone. 

Afterward, the team takes impressions of your teeth and sends this important information to a special lab. Here, a knowledgeable dental technician uses your unique measurements to create personalized veneers. 

Dr. Scherrer checks the veneers to ensure quality, comfort, and integrity in a subsequent office visit. The team then bonds the veneers into place, checks your bite, and adjusts if necessary.

How do I care for veneers?

Veneers are best cared for through strong oral hygiene practices. Brushing and flossing regularly can maximize the longevity of the veneers.

You should also avoid tearing objects and chewing extremely dense items like ice with veneers. It’s ideal to cut fruit and vegetables into smaller pieces before consumption to ensure long-lasting veneers.
