Cosmetic Veneers Q & A

by Lee A. Ecker, DDS

What are Cosmetic Veneers?

Veneers are restorative and cosmetic devices designed to strengthen teeth and cover imperfections on the visible surfaces. They are crafted from thin layers of either porcelain or composite materials. Veneers look like natural teeth and can be color-matched to the surrounding teeth to ensure that they blend in. Porcelain veneers are used more often because they are very durable and offer superior cosmetic appeal. They can:

  • Make teeth look straighter
  • Hide stains
  • Cover pits, gaps, and imperfections
  • Repair cracks and chips
  • Correct teeth which look short
  • Make tooth edges even

What is the Process Like for Veneers?

Cleaned teeth are prepared for the veneer by reducing the tooth down to a thin layer to create room for the veneer to lie flat. Impressions of the affected teeth are made, then sent to a dental laboratory where the cosmetic veneer is made to match the dimensions of the impression. A temporary veneer is usually worn while waiting for the lab to finish. During the second appointment, the dentist uses a strong bonding agent to adhere the veneer to the tooth. The veneer is then buffed smooth and the dentist ensures that it is even with the neighboring teeth.

Which is Better Cosmetic Bonding or Veneers?

The best choice will depend on the needs of the patients and their resources as well. Cosmetic bonding options can usually be completed in a single visit to the dentist and are less expensive. However, cosmetic bonding options are typically more prone to damage since the resins used in their creation are not as durable as porcelain. Commonly, patients pick porcelain veneers because they are durable, natural looking, and long-lasting. The dentist can help you determine which option will fit your needs and let you know how much is covered by insurance providers.
