Porcelain Veneers Q & A

Aura Dentistry

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored porcelain designed to cover the front surface of your teeth. They significantly improve the appearance of your smile and protect your teeth from damage. Porcelain veneers are a permanent solution for cosmetic dental issues.

Who is a candidate for veneers?

If you’re unhappy with the state of your smile, veneers may be an option for you. Veneers can correct problems such as:

  • Discolored or yellowing teeth – especially those that are unresponsive to traditional whitening methods
  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Minor misalignments

When you consult with the team at Aura Dentistry about the possibility of acquiring veneers, the team examines your current oral health and the condition of your teeth. They provide you with a wax replica how your teeth will look the veneers, so you can picture the outcome and decide if the procedure is for you.

With the aid of porcelain veneers, you can get a personalized shape, length, and color that enhances your overall smile. The dentists design a look that’s functional and natural, while vastly improving your smile.

What is the process like when my veneers are applied?

To apply veneers, your Aura dentist files off a small layer of your existing enamel. That makes space for the thin layer of porcelain that makes up the veneer and ensures optimal tooth function.

The customized veneer is bonded to your teeth using a light-sensitive resin. A specialized curing light helps it harden, and then your new smile is ready to go.

How do I care for veneers?

You can care for your veneers just as you would your natural teeth. Floss once daily and brush at least two times per day with a gentle toothpaste recommended by your dentist. Always alert the staff about your veneers when you get a professional cleaning, too. They can take care when cleaning to avoid damaging the veneers.

If you aren’t happy with your smile, porcelain veneers may be the treatment for you. Call Aura Dentistry or use the online booking agent to schedule a consultation to learn more about this total smile makeover.
