Veneers Q & A
What are veneers?
Veneers are very thin, custom-made porcelain shells that Dr. Trogan places over the front surface of your teeth to give them a new appearance. The porcelain material has a natural look and is the most stain-resistant when compared to other materials.
Dr. Trogan custom-fits each veneer to each tooth being treated. She then bonds them to your teeth, which covers up imperfections and protects your teeth from damage.
Porcelain veneers offer a permanent solution for your cosmetic dental issues.
What can veneers fix?
Veneers might be right for you if your teeth are:
- Broken, chipped, cracked, or worn-down
In general, veneers correct a multitude of cosmetic dental issues, completely covering the old tooth.
What can I expect during the veneers process?
You first meet with Dr. Trogan to consult with her about your aesthetic goals. You can select the size, shape, and color of your new veneers that best complement your features.
Once your plan is in place, your provider shaves off some of the enamel from the surface of your teeth to make room for your veneers.
When your teeth are fully prepared, your dental professional takes an impression of your teeth and sends them to a lab to create your custom veneers.
When your veneers are ready, you return to the practice where Dr. Trogan custom-fits your veneers individually over each tooth. Dr. Trogan then applies your veneers with a special dental cement that bonds them securely, making them permanent.
Once your veneers are placed and bonded, you walk out the door with a brand new smile.
How long do veneers last?
Your veneers can last 10-15 years and maybe even longer when you practice excellent oral hygiene habits, which include brushing at least twice daily and flossing at least once a day.
It’s also important to keep your routine visits at Signature Smile General & Cosmetic Dentistry. Dr. Trogan can keep a close eye on the condition of your veneers, making sure they stay strong and stable.
