Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are a very thin layer of porcelain that helps re-create the look of your natural teeth. Each veneer is custom-fitted to your individual teeth, then one of the skilled cosmetic dentists at Muncie Dental Care & Denture Center bonds them to your existing teeth. Veneers cover up imperfections like gaps, stains, cracks, or misshapen teeth. They also help strengthen delicate teeth.

Porcelain remains the most stain-resistant material for making veneers, though veneers may also be created out of resin composite materials. Porcelain more closely resembles your actual teeth enamel, too. One of the experienced dental team members explains your options and helps you select the best type of veneers for your needs.

What's the procedure for getting dental veneers?

Following the initial consultation to review your desired results and the kind of veneers that are best for you, you return for another appointment. At this appointment, one of the professional cosmetic dental experts takes off a minuscule amount of enamel from the surface of your existing teeth to shape them in preparation for the veneers. After your teeth have been prepared, your dental practitioner makes an impression of your teeth so the dental lab can create your custom veneers.

When the veneers arrive from the lab, you return to the office and have them custom-fitted to each of your teeth. To prepare your teeth for the bonding process, the dental expert cleans and etches the surface of your teeth. Then, your dental expert uses a specialized cement and light source that bonds the cement securely to the porcelain. In a relatively short amount of time, your veneers are permanently in place, and you have a new and improved smile.

What’s great about veneers?

Veneers offer a natural-looking solution for broken, crooked, or misshapen teeth. Also, they provide the following benefits:

  • Stain resistance
  • Well-tolerated by your gums
  • Can lighten darker teeth
  • Aesthetically pleasing with minimal dental work
  • Strengthen teeth
  • Less expensive than some other dental procedures like crowns
