Veneers Q & A

Why should I consider veneers?

Veneers mimic the natural appearance of your teeth with a very thin layer of porcelain. Each veneer is custom-made to fit your individual teeth to ensure flawless results. Dr. Chang bonds the veneers to your current teeth. Veneers correct imperfections such as misshapen teeth, stains, cracks, or gaps. They also help strengthen delicate teeth.

Veneers can be constructed out of resin composite materials, but porcelain is the most stain-resistant material. Porcelain also tends to look more like your natural enamel. Dr. Chang reviews your options and recommends the best type of veneers for your specific needs.

What should I expect if I decide to get veneers?

After a meeting to talk through your veneer options and the results you’d like to see, you return for a follow-up appointment. Then, Dr. Chang shapes your existing teeth to prepare them for the veneers by removing a tiny amount of enamel from the surface. Once your teeth are prepared, Dr. Chang takes a mold of your teeth and sends it to the lab, where technicians will make your custom veneers.

When the veneers arrive from the lab, you return to the office and have them custom-fitted to each of your teeth. Your teeth are cleaned and etched to prepare them for the bonding process. Dr. Chang then applies a unique adhesive and light source which makes the cement bond securely to the porcelain. Voila! Once the cement dries, you have a new and upgraded smile!

What are some advantages of veneers?

Veneers offer a natural-looking solution for broken, crooked, or misshapen teeth. Also, they provide the following benefits:

  • Resistance to stains
  • Little gum irritation
  • Ability to lighten darker teeth, so they appear whiter
  • Look great with no invasive dental work
  • Reinforce weak teeth
  • More cost-effective than other dental solutions like crowns
