Veneers Q & A
What are veneers?

Veneers are a thin porcelain layer and are custom-made to fit directly over your teeth and match the contour and natural look of healthy-looking, natural teeth. They also provide resilience and function just like your natural teeth. Veneers can be an optimal solution if you have:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Stained teeth

They are great at recreating the look of strong, natural tooth enamel. The team at Dentistry of Highland Village can bond veneers over your teeth in a simple in-office procedure.

How do veneers work?

Usually, the process to fit you and place veneers on your teeth takes two appointments.

During your first visit, the team at Dentistry of Highland Village takes impressions of your teeth and sends the imaging of to a dental lab to create your porcelain veneers that will be custom fit just for you.

The second visit involves placing the veneers. First, they use local anesthetics to numb your teeth when placing the veneers. They then bond the veneer on your teeth with a strong adhesive and polish the veneer.

Am I a good candidate for veneers?

If you have visual dental issues like chipped or yellowish teeth, you might be a good candidate for dental veneers. You will have an opportunity to speak with our doctors after your exam and consultation to see if veneers are the right fit for you. Getting veneers is an irreversible procedure, so it’s important to weigh your options and understand the specifics.

At your consultation, voice all of your concerns to the Dentistry of Highland Village team, and ask any questions you might have.

How long do veneers last?

Porcelain veneers are sturdy and can last for up to 20 years. However, a key determining factor is how well you maintain your veneers. If you are lazy about practicing good oral health habits like brushing and flossing regularly, your veneers can deteriorate, become damaged, or fall out.

Once you get your veneers, the team at Dentistry of Highland Village will help you maintain regular check-ups to make sure you are taking good care of your veneers. These check-ups should help hold you accountable and motivate you to keep your veneers in good shape. Otherwise, they won’t last nearly as long as you’d like and could cost you much more in the long run.
