Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are an effective cosmetic dentistry option. Veneers involve a thin layer of porcelain that covers your teeth with the goal of re-creating the appearance of your natural teeth.

Veneers act like natural-looking, thin protective shells that restore frail teeth and cover up imperfections, such as cracks, stains, gaps, or misshapen teeth. They are typically made of composite resin or porcelain. Porcelain is the more stain-resistant material out of the two.

The Vanguard and Achury Dental team custom fits each veneer to each individual tooth in your mouth. During an in-office procedure, they carefully bond each veneer to each tooth.

How do I get veneers?

It usually takes around two to three visits to place your veneers. You begin with a personal consultation where you can discuss your goals and expectations and determine the best type of veneers for your individual needs. 

Usually, you return for another appointment where your dentist prepares your teeth for your new veneers. Your dentist shapes your natural teeth before removing a minor amount of enamel from the surface. 

Once your teeth are prepared, your dentist takes molds of your teeth before sending them to a special dental lab where a highly qualified technician creates your custom-made veneers. 

Vanguard and Achury Dental only utilizes the highest-standard laboratory to fabricate all dental prosthesis. It typically takes around 10-14 days for you to receive your new veneers back from the lab. You’re given a beautiful temporary solution to wear in the interim. 

When the technician sends your veneers back from the dental lab, you return to the dental office and your dentist custom fits your veneers to each of your teeth. 

After cleaning and etching the surface of your teeth, your dentist applies a special cement and light source to help the porcelain and adhesive bond together. Your dentist tells you when you can go home.
