What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers, composed of a thin layer of porcelain expertly bonded to the tooth surface, have emerged as a popular and versatile cosmetic solution. Designed to address various aesthetic concerns, they are especially favored by patients with small teeth, gaps between teeth, or teeth that are discolored or misshapen. Through their natural translucency and impeccable fit, veneers effortlessly conceal imperfections, creating a harmonious and symmetrical smile that exudes confidence.

The true beauty of veneers lies in their ability to cater to individuals who possess otherwise healthy teeth but harbor insecurities about their appearance. With a conservative approach that preserves the bulk of the original tooth structure, veneers offer a non-invasive option for achieving remarkable smile transformations. Patients no longer need to feel self-conscious about their dental flaws as veneers effectively mask these imperfections, leaving them with an aesthetically pleasing and radiant grin.

Why Get Veneers?

Many people are unhappy with how one or more of their teeth look. At our Buffalo, NY, dentist office, we have a variety of solutions for different problems. If your teeth are crooked, we talk to you about orthodontia. If they are discolored, bleaching might be right for you. If one or more of your teeth are chipped, we may be able to offer you bonding.

Candidates for dental veneers are usually those for whom the above solutions don’t work. For instance, if your teeth are discolored due to many years of smoking or taking medication and you can’t tolerate the discomfort associated with bleaching or your teeth don’t respond to bleaching, veneers might be a good solution for you.

If your teeth are healthy, but small, worn down or irregularly shaped, veneers can give your smile a more typical appearance.

How Do Veneers Work?

In order for our dentists to place veneers, we have to remove a thin layer of the enamel on your teeth to make room for the veneer. Most porcelain veneers are about a half-millimeter thick. Lumineers are thinner and thus do not require enamel to be removed from your teeth. Traditional porcelain veneers last anywhere from 10-20 years, while Lumineers may not last as long.

Because our dentists must remove some of the enamel from your healthy teeth, veneers are a lifetime commitment, and when they wear out, you must get replacements. This isn’t the case with Lumineers, however, because they are so thin. You can have them removed at any time.

Additionally, not every patient is a candidate for veneers. If teeth are badly discolored, the discoloration might be visible through the veneer. An evaluation from our dentists can help determine if veneers are right for you.

Veneers FAQs

What are veneers?
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells typically made of porcelain or composite resin that are bonded to the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance.
Veneers can improve the appearance of teeth by correcting issues such as discoloration, chipped or broken teeth, gaps between teeth, and misshapen or uneven teeth.
The process involves a consultation with a dentist, where the teeth are prepared by removing a small amount of enamel. Impressions of the teeth are taken, and custom veneers are created in a dental laboratory. The veneers are then bonded to the teeth using dental adhesive.
Veneers are considered a permanent dental treatment because a small amount of enamel is removed during the preparation process. However, they may need to be replaced over time due to wear or damage.
Veneers are designed to blend in naturally with the surrounding teeth, making them appear realistic and natural. They are custom-made to match the color, shape, and size of your existing teeth.
The lifespan of veneers varies depending on factors such as oral hygiene practices, habits (e.g., teeth grinding), and overall dental health. On average, porcelain veneers can last 10 to 15 years, while composite veneers may last 5 to 7 years.
Unlike natural teeth, veneers are resistant to staining. However, they cannot be whitened once they are in place. It’s important to maintain good oral hygiene to prevent any staining or discoloration of the natural teeth surrounding the veneers.
Veneers do not require any special care beyond maintaining good oral hygiene practices. Regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups are important to keep the veneers and surrounding teeth in optimal condition.
Veneers can improve the appearance of slightly crooked teeth, but they are not a substitute for orthodontic treatment in cases of more severe misalignment. Your dentist can evaluate your specific situation and recommend the most appropriate treatment option.

The process of getting veneers involves removing a small amount of enamel from the teeth, which is an irreversible process. Once the veneers are in place, they cannot be removed without replacement.
