Veneers Q & A

Complete Dentistry of Midland

Why should I consider veneers?

Veneers are thin porcelain shells designed to cover the front side of your teeth and enhance your natural smile. Dr. Millard custom-fits each veneer to the individual teeth in your mouth then bonds the veneers to your existing teeth. Veneers correct imperfections like gaps, stains, cracks, or misshapen teeth. They can also restore delicate teeth.

Although veneers can be made out of resin composite materials, porcelain is the most stain-resistant material. Porcelain also tends to look more like your natural enamel. A skilled dental team member describes your choices and recommends the best type of veneers for your specific needs.

What should I expect if I decide to get veneers?

Following the initial consultation to review your desired results and the kind of veneers that are best for you, you return for another appointment. Dr. Millard then removes a tiny layer of enamel from the surface of your existing teeth to make sure the veneers bond and fit properly. After your teeth have been prepared, your dental practitioner takes a mold of your teeth to create your individualized veneers in the dental lab.

When your veneers are ready, you come back to have the veneers fitted to each tooth. Once your teeth are entirely prepared for the bonding process, the dental specialist applies a unique adhesive and light beam. This step helps the cement bond firmly to the porcelain. In no time at all, your veneers are securely in place, and you have a beautiful and improved smile.

What are some advantages of veneers?

Veneers offer a natural-looking solution for broken, crooked, or misshapen teeth. They offer these benefits, too:

  • Stain resistance
  • Well-tolerated by your gums
  • Can lighten darker teeth
  • Aesthetically pleasing with minimal dental work
  • Reinforce weak teeth
  • Cheaper than other dental treatments such as crowns
