Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are a minimally invasive cosmetic option for repairing discolored or damaged teeth. Each veneer is custom-made using porcelain materials to create an ultrathin shell that fits over the front surface of your tooth.

You may benefit from veneers if you want to restore the strength of your teeth and enhance the appearance of your smile, but don’t want to use crowns.

In addition to updating yellowed or discolored teeth, veneers can address a variety of dental issues, such as:

  • Gapped teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Uneven teeth

Veneers can also help transform teeth that are too small or irregularly shaped.

What can I expect during my veneer procedure?

During your initial consultation for veneers, Dr. Schraner discusses your expectations for results and performs a physical exam of your teeth.

If you’re a good candidate for veneers, Dr. Schraner takes an impression of your teeth, which she sends to a dental laboratory that will create your custom veneers. Using computer technology, Dr. Schaner can show you what your teeth will look like with your new veneers.

When your veneers are ready for placement, Dr. Schraner prepares the surface of your tooth, removing a small amount of enamel to ensure a good fit for the veneer. Using a special dental cement, she bonds the veneer to the front of your tooth.

Dr. Schraner ensures your bite is comfortable once all the veneers are in place, and if any additional adjustments are needed she can make them during your visit.

Will my veneers look natural?

Your veneers are custom-made to match the shape and color of your natural teeth. This ensures each veneer looks just like your other teeth and no one can tell the difference. Veneers are designed to instantly enhance the appearance of your teeth and overall smile, with results lasting for years.

A benefit of porcelain veneers is that the materials are stain-resistant, so you won’t have to worry about you veneers becoming stained or discolored over time.

You care for veneers just like your natural teeth, brushing and flossing after each meal. Routine dental checkups ensure the veneers are secure and that you’re free of cavities and disease.
