Dental Porcelain Veneers have become the cornerstone of modern cosmetic dentistry. The buzz is our about the restorations that give patients the glowing and radiant smile tat they are looking for.

While this dental restoration and fixation is often done for cosmetic reasons, dental veneers are also very helpful in restoring discolored teeth due to the aging process, chemical damages to your teeth, as well as wine and coffee stains. Teeth discoloration is a common problem that happens when teeth enamel (the outside layer of your tooth) is stained or damaged through time.

What are some causes of teeth discoloration?

Some common causes of this discoloration include foods, liquids, and hazardous materials that people often use. Some of these include: Coffee, tea, wine, certain medications like Tetracycline, as well as nicotine from smoking cigarettes.

While staining is the leading cause of teeth discoloration, cellular genetics may also play a part, as some people naturally have whiter enamel than others.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) – Dental Veneers

How Do Dental Veneers Work?

During a cosmetic veneer restoration, composite or porcelain shells are placed over the teeth to change its color and shape. In addition to solving discoloration problems, the treatment is also ideal for fixing disproportionate teeth sizes allowing that person to restore a beautiful smile.

Having dental veneers placed over teeth that are too small or too big, are unevenly shaped, crooked, chipped, or have small holes in them, fixes these irregularities and gives you the beautiful and lasting Hollywood smile that you desire. If your severely discolored, misshapen tooth is bringing you down and preventing you from showing a toothy grin, maybe it’s time to consider having cosmetic veneers installed.

This dental restoration is often offered as an alternative to dental crowns. Veneers offer a few advantages over dental crowns: Less tooth structure is removed in preparation for the restoration, and instead of being cemented on, these thin porcelain shells are bonded on adhering to the front side of your teeth.

Are Dental Veneers for me?

Not only do veneers cost less than dental crowns, their installation also require less work, in turn preventing the risk of trauma that causes sensitivity and other tooth problems. Porcelain veneers are patterned from tooth impressions and fabricated in a dental laboratory. These types of veneers are made from a thin porcelain material.

When the Veneers are fabricated and ready, they are then glued over the front of the teeth, usually with little to no local anesthesia required. While Porcelain Dental Veneers require at least two visits to your dentist, composite veneers require only a single visit, as the application and bonding of the composite veneer is done directly on the surface of the tooth.

Having composite veneers installed gives you an instant solution to your stained or crooked teeth. However, porcelain veneers are more resistant to staining and are very durable, and can last you a longer time.

Are Dental Veneers Permanent?

Yes they are. As mentioned they are thin porcelain shells that are bonded onto your own tooth structure permanently. These porcelain shells are bonded on using a special cement that holds them into place. A series of techniques are used to prepare the tooth for this bonding procedure. This includes etching, using a tooth based primer, and preparing the porcelain veneers itself with a yellow colored etchant, and a silane based agent. The cement is normally light cured into place to harden the cement, and making your restoration permanent.

What are some drawbacks to Porcelain Veneers?

  • They can be very pricey and expensive
  • Your dentist will have to grind and remove a millimeter of your tooth structure to make room for the porcelain veneer.
  • Your teeth may end up getting sensitive after the procedure (sometimes these teeth end up needing root canals).
  • For patients who grind their teeth, dental veneers may not be a good option. Your dentist may recommend getting a nightguard after getting your dental veneers to prevent them from breaking or falling off.

How Long Can My Dental Veneers Last?

Dental veneers can last decades if they are properly taken care of. The average lifespan of a dental veneer is 10 years. Some may last longer depending on how well the patient takes care of your teeth. We tell our patients, the longevity of your dental veneers corresponds to your daily brushing and flossing habits.

Patients who grind their teeth and eat harder foods tend to have veneers that last only a few years before they need to be replaced. The good news is that if your dental veneer ever needs to be replaced, no more of your actual tooth structure needs to be grinded down.

At what age can you get Dental Veneers?

You want to make sure your jaw has completed development prior to getting dental veneers. For most people, Dr. Jasmine recommends they wait until they are 18 years of age before considering getting porcelain veneers. The great news is that there is no age limit after your 18 to get dental veneers. That means adults and even the elderly population are great candidates.

Can dental veneers be used for cover your receding gums?

Some patients have gum recession that has progressed throughout their lives. If they are not fond of composite bondings, another option to cover that recession are dental veneers. Not only can they mask a receding gum line, but they can help fix any teeth imperfections that you may also have.

How many Dental Veneers will Dr. Jasmine recommend for my case?

This will vary from case to case. Your smile line will really determine how many dental veneers will be recommended for your case. The wider your smile, the more veneers you may end up needing to make your smile look more natural.

You may end up needing only a few or even one veneer if you decide to concentrate on a single tooth. These cases are more difficult because a shade match against your adjacent teeth will be a difficult task for you and your dentist.

What is the difference between a Porcelain Veneer and a Dental Crown?

While a dental veneer is a thin porcelain shell that is bonded on top of your actual tooth, a dental crown is usually wrapped around the whole tooth and more of your tooth structure needs to be removed to make room for the crown. Dental crowns are usually better used for situations where the tooth is really worn or broken down.

What is a composite veneer?
