Veneers Q & A

Why should I consider veneers?

Veneers are a very thin layer of porcelain that helps re-create the look of your natural teeth. Before bonding the veneers to your existing teeth, one of the qualified dentists at Sunrise Dental goes tooth-by-tooth to fit each veneer. Veneers correct imperfections such as cracks, gaps, stains, or misshapen teeth. In addition, they help reinforce weak teeth.

Veneers can be made from composite resin or porcelain. Porcelain is the most stain-resistant material out of the two materials. Porcelain also tends to match your natural enamel better. A member of the qualified dental team presents your options and recommends the best type of veneers for your specific needs.

What is the process for getting veneers?

After an initial consultation to discuss the type of veneers that are best for your teeth and the results you hope to achieve, you come back for another appointment. Here, a skilled cosmetic dental specialist readies your current teeth for the shape of the veneers by scraping off a minimal amount of enamel from the surface. After your teeth are ready, your dental practitioner takes a mold of your teeth to create your individualized veneers in the dental lab.

You come back to have the finished veneers fitted to each tooth. After cleaning and etching the surface of your teeth to prepare them for the bonding process, the dental expert applies a special cement and light source that causes the adhesive to bond securely to the porcelain. In no time at all, your veneers are securely in place, and you have a beautiful and improved smile.

Why should I get veneers?

Veneers improve crooked, broken, or misshapen teeth while maintaining the natural appearance of your teeth. Also, they provide the following benefits:

  • Resistance to stains
  • Little gum irritation
  • Ability to lighten darker teeth, so they appear whiter
  • Look great with no invasive dental work
  • Reinforce weak teeth
  • More cost-effective than other dental solutions like crowns
