Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Dental veneers are thin shells of ceramic placed on the front of your natural teeth to brighten and straighten your smile. They can correct chipped or crooked teeth instantly, without the pain and time of more invasive treatments.

Veneers are custom-developed for every patient. Dr. Nwizu works with you to choose the color, size, and shape of your ceramic veneers to give you the natural look you desire. Veneers are a permanent cosmetic treatment and each veneer is fitted and bonded to your tooth. Once you have veneers, you’ll care for them by brushing and flossing twice per day.

Are veneers right for me?

Veneers are a popular cosmetic dental procedure that addresses a range of tooth issues. Typically, veneers are a good option for patients with overall good health and strong teeth, but who are embarrassed by the look of their smile.

Veneers can fix cosmetic imperfections such as:

  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Discoloration
  • Short, gummy teeth
  • Small teeth
  • Irregularly-shaped teeth

You can get a veneer on just one tooth, or on several teeth for a more complete, consistent look. Many patients get veneers for the top eight front teeth (the teeth that tend to show when you smile). Ceramic veneers are easy to care for and don’t require any special maintenance once you have them.

How are veneers applied?

Before you get veneers, you’ll have a consultation at Sacred Dental & Associates, PC, to measure your teeth and take impressions, which are used to create your veneers. Once your veneers arrive from the dental lab, you’ll come back for your fitting appointment.

Dr. Nwizu prepares the surface of your teeth by cleaning them. She removes a small amount of enamel and applies a special adhesive to permanently bond your veneers. Most patients don’t require local anesthesia, but it’s available to keep you comfortable if you need it.

After placing your veneers, Dr. Nwizu evaluates your bite and trims the veneers to ensure a perfect fit. You’ll typically experience little to no downtime after you get your veneers. You may have a follow-up appointment to make sure you’re adjusting to your veneers and the fit is still correct.

Dental veneers are a popular cosmetic procedure that has the power to dramatically change your smile. To find out if veneers are a good option for you, call Sacred Dental & Associates, PC, for your first appointment.
