Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that help conceal certain smile flaws. With a set of veneers, you can hide cosmetic concerns and flaunt a vastly improved smile. 

You should consider veneers if you have:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Gaps in your smile
  • Discolored or stained teeth
  • Crooked teeth

In many cases, getting front-teeth veneers can serve as a full mouth rehabilitation, simultaneously improving your appearance and oral health. They’re sturdy and durable enough to last and achieve the optimal chewing, speaking, and digesting functions associated with natural teeth. 

What is the process of getting veneers?

First, Dr. Berger takes comprehensive impressions of your teeth that are used to make your new veneers. He then files down your teeth slightly, reducing them in size using special dental instruments. This gives your veneers enough room to fit.

Berger Family Dental uses an outside dental lab to custom-make your veneers with specific instructions provided by Dr. Berger and the team. The specifications include the sizing and the exact shade needed to match your teeth, so your veneers look exactly like healthy, natural teeth. It typically takes approximately two workings weeks to finish a new set of veneers. 

You’ll then return for a follow-up visit at Berger Family Dental for your permanent veneer fitting. Dr. Berger uses a special dental adhesive to bond your veneers to your natural teeth, all in a simple procedure that may not require an anesthetic. 

What are the benefits of veneers?

Veneers can completely change your appearance for the better. Even if your oral health is in good shape, veneers can deliver incredible aesthetic results so that your smile gives you an invaluable boost in self-confidence. Best of all, the process involves no forms of oral surgery or other invasive procedures.

Beyond the cosmetic benefits, veneers can help restore your oral health. Chips, cracks, and gaps often affect essential functions like chewing, speech, and digestion. Veneers restore these functions and improve your overall quality of life.

How long do veneers last?

Veneers generally last 5-15 years, but the lifespan of a new set largely depends on you. Make sure to treat them just like your natural teeth. Continue brushing and flossing regularly, and maintain your regularly scheduled checkups to monitor your veneers.
