Veneers Q&A

What are veneers?

Dental veneers are wafer-thin porcelain shells that permanently bond to the surface of your teeth. They look and feel just like natural tooth enamel but without the minor imperfections that may detract from the appearance of your smile.

Veneers are one of the most popular and well-established procedures in cosmetic dentistry. They’ve been used for decades to improve a variety of dental imperfections, delivering a picture-perfect smile.

What issues can veneers correct?

Veneers can correct numerous issues, such as:

  • Worn-down teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Gaps between your teeth
  • Crooked or uneven teeth
  • Irregularly sized or shaped teeth

If you have any of the above issues, talk to Dr. Lee to see if veneers may be right for you.

What are the benefits of dental veneers?

Veneers offer a fast solution to many cosmetic dentistry issues that may draw attention away from your radiant smile. Other benefits of veneers include:

  • Durable, long-lasting, and stain-resistant
  • Fully customized to match your natural teeth
  • Blend in with neighboring teeth

With veneers, you can brighten your smile in as little as two appointments.

What is the process of getting veneers?

Dr. Lee thoroughly evaluates your teeth to determine whether you’re a good candidate for veneers. Because veneers are permanent, he spends as much time as you need to answer all of your questions. If veneers aren’t right for you, he may suggest another treatment, such as teeth whitening.

If you decide to get veneers, Dr. Lee develops a customized treatment plan based on your cosmetic concerns and desired outcome. He designs the veneers to match your skin tone and natural tooth color, so no one knows you have veneers unless you tell them.

During the procedure, Dr. Lee prepares your teeth for veneers by removing about half a millimeter of surface enamel from your teeth. The amount of enamel he removes is about the same thickness as the veneer. He also takes impressions and sends them to a lab to create your custom veneers.

Once your veneers are ready, you return to the office for your second appointment. Dr. Lee places the veneers on your teeth and bonds them in place. Then, you’re ready to leave the office and show off your dazzling new smile.
