Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin, durable layerings that Dr. Patti bonds onto your natural teeth to help conceal flaws. They are a good option if your smile has one or more of the following flaws:

  • Missing teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Discolored or stained teeth

Typically made of porcelain, veneers provide you with a whiter, healthier looking smile you can be proud of.

How are veneers placed?

At your first appointment, Dr. Patti takes impressions of your teeth. Next, he sends them to a dental lab, where they produce your custom-made veneers.

At your second appointment, Dr. Patti thoroughly cleans your teeth, bonds your veneers onto your natural teeth in a simple and straightforward procedure, and rinses off any excess material. Then, he provides you with aftercare instructions and answers any questions you have.

In the weeks and months after getting your veneers, you schedule regular follow-up appointments with Dr. Patti to monitor your progress and ensure you’re adjusting well to your new veneers.

What are the benefits of veneers?

A smile with cracks, chips, or stains can detract from your appearance and hamper your self-image. With veneers, you can look forward to a brighter smile that will help restore your confidence.

Beyond the cosmetic benefits, veneers also lend strength to weak or damaged teeth, boosting your overall dental health. Notably, veneers can’t restore severely damaged teeth. That’s a job better left for other restorative services, such as crowns.

How long do veneers last?

Your veneers should last at least 10 years if you take good care of them. They may require slights adjustments as you age because your mouth, teeth, and gums naturally change over time. Dr. Patti provides these adjustments to ensure your smile continues to look amazing.

To ensure your veneers last as long as they should, treat them like your natural teeth: brush and floss regularly and keep up with your dental appointments, such as checkups and professional cleanings.
