Give Your Smile a Major Transformation
Are You a Candidate for Veneers?
Because veneers are a cosmetic solution, candidates for the procedure must be in good oral health.
This means that any existing tooth decay or gum disease must be addressed prior to the placement of your new restorations.
Furthermore, qualifying patients must have sufficient enamel, as some of the teeth must be shaved down during the preparation process.
Finally, individuals must be fully committed to routine dental visits as well as practicing excellent oral hygiene habits at home.
If you grind or clench your teeth, you may not be eligible for veneers.
What to Expect During the Veneers Process
In most cases, we can place your veneers in two dental office visits. The procedure is typically broken down into several steps:
Placement of final veneers –
Once the teeth are fully prepared, we can take impressions. These are then shipped to a dental lab, where a trained ceramist uses them to create your customized veneer. This process usually takes two to four weeks, depending on the complexity of your case.
In the meantime, your dentist may place a temporary veneer. These will protect the teeth while you wait for your final restorations.

Veneers can be a great option for achieving a beautiful smile, but it’s important to keep in mind that they may not be as strong as dental crowns and can be susceptible to chipping if exposed to excessive force.
That being said, if you suffer from bruxism (unconscious grinding of teeth at night), veneers may still be a viable treatment option. By using a custom oral appliance to protect your teeth while you sleep, you can lessen the effects of bruxism and enjoy the aesthetic benefits of veneers. Our dental professionals can help you determine the best treatment plan for your needs.
