Veneers

What are veneers?

Veneers are sets of thin porcelain layerings that essentially provide you with a brand new smile. They enhance the appearance of cosmetically flawed teeth affected by:

  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Gaps
  • Discoloration
  • Misalignment

Veneers are bonded over your natural teeth and help conceal these imperfections without sacrificing functions, such as proper chewing and speech. With veneers, you improve your smile without invasive procedures.

They’re an excellent option that’s long lasting and convenient. Veneers are sturdy and durable, so you can keep eating your favorite foods without fear of damaging them.

What is the process of getting veneers?

First, Dr. Jenn evaluates your teeth and takes detailed impressions of your oral structures. These impressions are then sent off to an outside dental lab where your veneers are custom-made according to the office’s specifications. Your veneers will probably take at least two weeks to finish. Once the veneers are ready, you’ll come back in to have them placed.

Dr. Jenn will also use special dental instruments to slightly reduce the size of your natural teeth before placing your new veneers. Filing down a slight bit of enamel from your teeth helps ensure a snug fit. Afterward, Dr. Jenn uses a special dental adhesive to bond your veneers on top of your natural teeth.

What are the benefits of veneers?

Veneers can deliver such amazing results that they often change the way you feel about yourself. With a new and improved smile, you’ll reap the benefits of a huge boost in self-confidence.

However, it’s important to know that veneers don’t just offer cosmetic benefits. Veneers can also help restore essential functions, such as chewing, speech, and digestion.

How long do veneers last?

As long as you take proper care of your veneers, they can last up to 15 years, and, in some cases, even longer. Make sure to treat your veneers like you would your natural teeth. That means you should continue to brush and floss regularly.

Also, continue maintaining your regularly scheduled visits for dental exams and cleanings. As your mouth changes naturally over time, it’s important to have the Hudson River Dental Arts team monitor your veneers and even make alterations on occasion.
