Veneers Q&A

What are veneers?

Veneers are custom-made, thin shells that fit over your natural teeth to restore their appearance and function. They can improve teeth that are:

  • Stained
  • Chipped
  • Cracked
  • Misshapen
  • Gapped
  • Gummy
  • Too small
  • Weak 
  • Decaying
  • Crooked

Veneer placement is quick and noninvasive, yet can drastically transform your smile.

Are veneers right for me?

To find out if veneers are the right dental restoration for you, Ramona Dental Group providers review your dental history, take dental X-rays, and examine your teeth and gums. 

If you have minor teeth imperfections that make you feel self-conscious but no tooth decay or gum disease, veneers might be for you. Your dentist can treat cavities and other oral health issues prior to veneer placement. 

If you have severe tooth decay a crown, bridge, dental implants, or dentures might be a better fit for you. Your dentist customizes a smile makeover to meet your needs.

What happens during veneer placement?

To obtain custom veneers, your dentist removes a small portion of enamel from the front and sides of your teeth. They take impressions or digital scans of the teeth so a dental lab can create custom veneers.

When the veneers are ready, your dentist ensures they fit properly and permanently bonds them to your teeth to perfect your smile.

How should I care for my new veneers?

To maintain healthy teeth and gums and  avoid damaging your veneers:

  • Brush your teeth with a soft-bristled brush twice daily
  • Brush for at least two minutes each time
  • Replace your toothbrush every three or four months
  • Floss daily
  • Avoid chewing on popcorn kernels, ice, and hard candy
  • Don’t open packages with your teeth

Limit or avoid foods and drinks that can stain veneers like red wine, tea, and coffee. If you properly care for your new veneers, they can last 10 years or longer. 

Don’t let imperfect teeth ruin a beautiful smile when veneers are a simple dental restoration that produces dramatic results. Schedule an appointment with Ramona Dental Group over the phone or online to find out if you’re a good candidate for veneers.
