 Veneers Q & A

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that fit over the front part of your teeth to improve their color, shape, size, and overall appearance and make your teeth beautiful. Veneers are strong, long-lasting, and look just like your natural teeth.

What are the benefits of veneers?

Some of the many benefits you can experience with dental veneers at Alegria Dental Care include teeth that are:

  • Whiter
  • Brighter
  • Even-shaped
  • Aesthetically pleasing
  • Less worn
  • Less gapped
  • Symmetrical 

You can gain confidence when you smile with dental veneers. They are strong, long-lasting, and natural-looking.

Are dental veneers right for me?

To find out if veneers are right for you, the team at Alegria Dental Care reviews your oral health history and examines your teeth and gums. They take dental X-rays if needed to detect or rule out dental problems requiring treatment. 

Your dentist discusses what to expect during the procedure and lets you help choose the color of your new veneers.

What happens when getting veneers?

The process of getting dental veneers is a multiple-step procedure. During the first visit, your dentist digitally scans your teeth, which allows a dental lab to create custom-fitted veneers that fit comfortably over your natural teeth.

When the new veneers are ready, you return to Alegria Dental Care to get them fitted. Your dentist removes a tiny bit of enamel from the outer portion of your teeth and bonds veneers to the front and side of them to perfect the way your teeth look and feel. 

There’s no downtime after getting veneers, so you can enjoy a normal daily routine immediately without any discomfort. 

How should I care for my new veneers?

Take good care of your new veneers to ensure they last as long as possible. Brush your teeth at least twice daily and after meals. Floss every day and wear a mouthguard if you play contact sports or grind your teeth at night. 

Don’t chew on ice or other hard objects and see Alegria Dental Care specialists every six months for dental checkups and professional teeth cleanings.
