What do veneers help?

One of the best parts about opting for veneers is that they can change your smile in so many ways. Whether your teeth are too small, too discolored to be whitened, chipped, gapped, or misshapen, veneers can fix your smile.

  • Crooked teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Teeth of different lengths
  • Worn teeth
  • Chipped teeth

 

What should I expect?

Before you get veneers, you and Dr. Carmona will have a thorough consultation about whether or not veneers are the right choice for you. Getting veneers generally takes two appointments. Once you decide that veneers are the right choice, Dr. Carmona will take impressions and pictures of your teeth to send to the lab, where your porcelain veneers will be made. At this time, Dr. Carmona will prepare your teeth, a process that includes shaving down some of your tooth enamel to make room for your veneers. After your teeth are prepared, Dr. Carmona will fit you with temporary veneers.

During your second appointment, Dr. Carmona will double check your veneers to make sure that they are the correct size, shape, and color. After this, your prepared teeth will be cleaned so that the cement can properly bond the veneers to your tooth.

Who is a candidate?

Not everyone is an ideal candidate for veneers. At Austin Prosthodontics, Dr. Carmona prides himself on providing truly individualized and hands-on care. Before deciding whether or not veneers are right for you, you will have a consultation with Dr. Carmona wherein you will discuss your oral health history, why you want veneers, your cosmetic and oral health goals, and your budget.

People who should not consider veneers:

  • People in need of severe correction
  • People who grind or clench their teeth
  • People with poor gingival health or tooth decay
  • People whose teeth are susceptible to decay due to severe damage

Your healthcare decisions are important to us, and we want to make sure that every patient is empowered and informed to make the best decision about their own health.

Are veneers a long-term option?

While veneers are roughly the size of a contact lens, tooth preparation is necessary. However, this means that veneers are permanent—you will always need veneers or crowns to protect your tooth structure because of the preparation process. Your porcelain veneers, with proper care, can last roughly 20 years. This, of course, varies on a patient-by-patient basis. Veneers are a long-term cosmetic solution to getting the smile of your dreams, but it will require care and upkeep.
