A Brighter, Whiter Smile

Veneers are “shells” placed on top of your natural teeth to give you the smile of your dreams! Your dentist can customize them to provide you with the straight white teeth you’ve always wanted and effectively cover up minor imperfections and gaps. If you currently have some cosmetic issues with your teeth that you’d like to improve, like chips, stains, small gaps, and minor alignment problems, veneers might be able to help!

If you’re interested in what veneers can do for your smile, we’d love to help. Contact our office, and we’ll book you in for an appointment!

Types of Veneers

Different types of veneers can be applied to your teeth to improve your smile: porcelain or composite resin. Each carries its own strengths. For example, porcelain veneers are less prone to staining, but composite resin is more durable. However, your dentist will recommend what type will suit you and your lifestyle best.

Porcelain & Ceramic

Fitting porcelain and ceramic veneers requires more than 1 appointment, as your teeth need to be prepared and an impression needs to be made. At Heritage Pointe Dental, we use the IPS Empress System to provide superior tooth restorations.

Temporary plastic veneers are placed on your teeth to keep them protected while the porcelain or ceramic veneers are being made. You can use the plastic veneers to see how you like the look and feel of them and request any changes. Your dentist will remove the plastic veneers at your second appointment, and your custom porcelain or ceramic veneers will be applied.

Composite resin veneers are typically completed in 1 appointment. Once your teeth are filed to support the veneers, your dentist will make the veneer directly on the tooth and then smooth and polish it. If you choose to have composite resin veneers applied, you’ll leave our office with a brand new smile. However, composite veneers can stain and darken more easily than porcelain, which means you may need them to have them replaced sooner.

Are Veneers Right For Me?

Veneers are not right for everyone. If you’d like to explore veneers as an option for your smile, your dentist can assess your teeth and gums to make sure you’re a good candidate. They’ll look for:

  • Teeth with no decay
  • Healthy gums
  • Sufficiently thick tooth enamel
  • Mostly intact teeth
  • No signs of grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw

Caring For Your Veneers

It’s important to remember that veneers are an irreversible solution to cosmetic dental problems. The enamel on your teeth need to be filed down to fit the veneer shells on top, so they can’t be removed unless they’re being replaced.

To ensure your veneers’ longevity, you should brush them twice a day and floss once a day, just like your natural teeth. If the veneers are not properly sealed, they can become stained or develop cavities.

Avoid eating very hard, sticky, or chewy foods when you have veneers, as that can easily damage them. Avoid biting into hard foods, like ice, or using your teeth to open packages.

If your veneers chip or break, or a cavity forms, they will need to be removed and replaced. If you don’t want your veneers redone, you’ll need a crown fitted over your natural tooth to protect it.
