Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Daily life can wear down your teeth. Many people develop unsightly chips and cracks, especially in their front teeth. But veneers can restore the appearance of your teeth. At Seguritan Dental Arts, Dr. Seguritan uses veneers to resolve a wide range of dental concerns. 

Veneers are thin porcelain shells, which are typically made of porcelain or composite resin. When attached to the surface of your teeth, veneers provide an attractive, consistent appearance. Each veneer is custom-made and designed to look as natural as possible. No one but your dentist will be able to see the difference.

What dental concerns do veneers address?

Veneers are ideal for repairing cosmetic damage, including:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Crooked or misshapen teeth
  • Uneven spaces or gaps
  • Stained teeth

But veneers may not fix significant dental problems. If you suffered a severe injury, your teeth might need extra care before you're eligible for veneers. 

During each appointment, Dr. Seguritan performs an in-depth evaluation. He takes X-rays and checks for signs of damage below the gumline. If your teeth or gums need special care, he develops a comprehensive treatment plan. No matter what your needs, Dr. Seguritan helps you achieve the smile of your dreams.

How are veneers placed?

First, Dr. Seguritan helps you choose the right shade and material for your veneers. As part of the preparation process, he also removes a small amount of enamel from the surface of your teeth. This step allows your new veneers to fit securely.

Next, Dr. Seguritan takes measurements and creates a mold of your teeth. This information is sent to a dental lab where your veneers are custom-made. The lab sends your completed veneers directly to Dr. Seguritan.

Once your veneers are ready, Dr. Seguritan attaches them to your teeth. He checks the fit and makes any necessary adjustments. Finally, he bonds your veneers to your teeth. 

What results can I expect?

Veneers can restore damaged teeth and improve your appearance. Once your veneers are in place, it's impossible to see any underlying cracks and chips. Instead, you can enjoy a straighter, whiter smile. 

But veneers may not be right for everyone. If you tend to grind or clench your teeth, you might damage your new veneers. Dr. Seguritan can help you find solutions for teeth grinding and protect your veneers.
