Q: What are Veneers and What are Their Indications?
A: Veneers are thin films of porcelain that get bonded onto your teeth to achieve the desired results. Veneers are occasionally done to achieve instantaneous alignment or correction without going through braces. Veneers are able to change teeth colors, close spaces, repair chips, and correct mal-aligned teeth.
Q: Are Veneers Strong and What Materials Are They Made Of?
A: Yes, veneers are very strong. Dental veneers are made out of ceramic porcelain and are bonded onto your natural teeth to give you a bright, radiant smile.
Q: What is the Longevity of Veneers?
A: If taken care of with regular cleanings along with being cautious about avoiding hard impacts to your face, they can last a very, very long time.
Q: How Many Teeth Do I Need Veneers For?
A: It all depends on the diagnosis of the condition of an individual’s desired results.
Q: Do My Teeth Need to Be Shaved Down for Veneers?
A: Yes, however, most of the time we conservatively reduce your teeth to the minimum amount needed in order to get a well-seated and well-fitted veneer to refresh your smile.
Q: What are the Maintenance Protocol and Precautions of Care with Veneers?
A: You should maintain your veneers as you would the rest of your teeth. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are crucial. Please wear a mouthguard when playing any contact sports. If you grind/brux or clench your teeth at night or during the day, please wear an occlusal guard.
