Veneers Q & A

What is a dental veneer?

Veneers are custom-made, paper-thin pieces of porcelain which bond to the front surface of your teeth with the goal of recreating the natural look of your teeth.

There are many reasons why people get veneers, such as:

  • To cover gaps between teeth
  • To cover fractured teeth
  • Helping to shape or contour your teeth
  • Resist coffee and tea stains along with cigarette smoke
  • Teeth that don’t respond well to tooth whitening

Dr. Blaustein ensures your veneers are crafted with the highest quality porcelains along with being carefully bonded to your teeth so you can walk away with a million-dollar smile.

What can I expect during the procedure?

It is important to understand that once your tooth is prepared for a veneer, the process is not reversible. Because of this, Dr. Blaustein takes his time in explaining and understanding why you want veneers I order to design your case specifically to your liking.

The first step is to trim the tooth back to about the same thickness as the veneer. Following this, Dr. Blaustein takes an impression of your teeth and gums, which he uses to fabricate your veneer. He then uses a shade guide to determine which color the of porcelain the veneers are going to be. This ensures that they match the surrounding teeth.

Once your veneer is in the shape and shade you desire, Dr. Blaustein bonds your veneer into place. If need be, Dr. Blaustein can apply a local anesthetic so that you do not experience discomfort during the procedure.

While the veneers can be placed in one visit to our office, it can take more visits depending on your specific situation.

What can I expect after getting a dental veneer?

Dr. Blaustein recommends you refrain from using your veneers as opening tools along with avoiding nail-biting and teeth grinding to not cause breakage or damage to your veneers. Following this advice consistently can help your veneers last for 15-20 years, if not more.
