Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin porcelain shells designed to transform your smile. By fixing veneers to the surface of your teeth with special dental cement, your dentist can quickly and completely transform the appearance of your teeth. 

Hartsdale Cosmetic Dentistry uses porcelain for the veneer material because it’s durable, resists staining, and perfectly matches the natural sheen of your teeth. 

Veneers are an ideal way to correct your smile if you’re suffering from:

  • A chipped tooth
  • Tooth staining or discoloration
  • Uneven teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Teeth with an uneven surface

The veneer lays over the surface of your tooth, perfecting its appearance. Each veneer will be custom-shaped to fit perfectly in your mouth and to match the color and shape of your surrounding teeth, so you get a stunning, natural-looking smile. 

What’s the process like for getting veneers?

Getting your veneers is straightforward, but it does require two separate visits to Hartsdale Cosmetic Dentistry. 

During your first appointment, your provider figures out the right shade and shape for your veneer. Then they prepare your tooth by removing an extremely small amount of your enamel so that the veneer can lay flush with any surrounding teeth. Then, they place a temporary veneer on your prepared tooth to protect it while your veneers are being created. 

Once your veneers are ready, you’ll come in for a second appointment, during which your dentist places your veneers. They use a strong dental adhesive to affix the veneer to your tooth so that you can eat, drink, talk, and laugh normally for years to come. After placement, they ensure that your veneers are perfectly colored and aligned to give you a bright, beautiful smile. 

How do I take care of veneers?

Caring for your veneers is extremely simple. You just need to maintain them like you would your natural teeth. That means regular brushing, flossing, and biannual visits to Hartsdale Cosmetic Dentistry for cleanings and exams. With proper care, veneers can last a decade or more. 

If you’re unhappy with your smile, veneers are an easy way to completely transform your teeth with just a couple of visits to Hartsdale Cosmetic Dentistry. To learn more about veneers or schedule your appointment, call the office or book your visit online today.
