What are Veneers Exactly?
Veneers are thin-yet-durable shells of porcelain designed to mimic the natural shape, shade, and characteristics of your teeth. Because of the materials used, veneers are a resilient and minimally-invasive cosmetic solution that typically requires very little tooth preparation, helping to preserve natural teeth as much as possible.
Once properly bonded to the surface of your teeth, veneers provide a versatile and custom way to address many limitations in your smile all at once.
Our team of cosmetic dentists provides beautiful, lifelike veneers to address the following:
- Severe enamel discoloration caused by an injury or medication use
- Minor dental chips and cracks
- Gaps between teeth
- Crooked, uneven, and misshapen teeth
- Worn teeth
- Mild bite misalignment
- Teeth that appear small
Am I A Good Candidate for Veneers?
Most adults make excellent candidates for veneers. However, as with any procedure we offer, our dentists must first determine whether your teeth and gums are healthy enough to receive veneer treatment.
What Is the Process of Getting Veneers?
Typically, getting veneers takes two separate appointments, including a thorough consultation and detailed examination of your smile.
First, our Richmond dentists conduct a consultation to understand why you’re interested in veneer treatment. This discussion allows us to learn your unique needs, concerns, and what you’re expecting out of treatment. This appointment also covers what you like about your smile, and what you want to improve or change.
Next, we must ensure you’re in good oral and overall health to receive veneers. For this, we take a series of precise images with our digital and panoramic x-rays. These advanced diagnostic tools allow us to analyze your teeth, gums, roots, jaws, and facial structures accurately to make sure your smile and its supporting foundations are in good health. We also use digital x-rays to take impressions of the teeth chosen for treatment and send them to a trusted local lab for the fabrication of your veneers.
After a professional cleaning, our dentists prepare your teeth with a light buffing to create a clean, smooth surface for veneer application. We’ll also apply your temporary veneers to your smile until your permanent ones come in.
At your second and final appointment, you’ll return to our Richmond office for the placement of your permanent veneers! Once we’ve made sure you’re comfortable, using local anesthesia and possibly sedation if needed, we’ll carefully place your new veneers, and you can leave our office with the dream smile you’ve always wanted!
How Long Will My Veneers Last?
Although veneers are strong, they’re still susceptible to damage. Typically, traditional porcelain veneers can last upwards of 10-15 years. However, Good oral hygiene and maintenance will help your veneers to last longer.
