Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin shells affixed to the front side of your teeth. They cover the visible portion of your teeth, so when you smile, people see your veneers.

They’re like little masks for your teeth and can significantly improve the appearance of your smile by covering cosmetic concerns and improving the size, shape, color, and alignment of your teeth.

Veneers are made from porcelain, which looks just like tooth enamel, so your restored smile will look both beautiful and natural. You can choose to get just a single veneer to fix a problem tooth, or you can opt for a full set to totally redesign your smile.

What conditions do veneers treat?

Some of the most common reasons people choose veneers is to improve the appearance of teeth that are:

  • Cracked, chipped, or broken
  • Worn down
  • Stained 
  • Too large or too small
  • Crooked
  • Widely spaced
  • Uneven

Veneers enable the team at Encino Dental Esthetics to totally transform your smile.

How do you place my veneers?

It only takes a couple of visits to Encino Dental Esthetics to get your dream smile with porcelain veneers. 

During your first appointment, you consult with the dental team. You review your aesthetic goals and what you hope to achieve with your veneers. Many people even bring in pictures of smiles that they admire to give their dentist a better idea of the look they want.

You and the team select a size, shape, and color for your porcelain veneers, then they prepare your teeth by removing a thin layer of enamel. This is necessary to make room for your veneers so that they lay flush with your gumline and the surrounding teeth. 

With your teeth prepared, the team takes an impression of your smile and sends it to a dental lab. You wear temporary veneers while the lab makes your custom-fitted restorations, and when you return for your second appointment the dental team permanently bonds them to your teeth. 

How do I care for my veneers?

Porcelain veneers are very easy to care for and don’t require any special treatment or upkeep. If you follow good oral hygiene habits, like daily brushing and flossing, and maintain regular cleanings and checkups with the team at Encino Dental Esthetics, your veneers will last for a long time.
