Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment that can give you the smile you’ve always wanted. They’re thin, tooth-shaped shells that your dentist seals to the front of your teeth, where they cover up any cosmetic defects. Once in place, your veneers look just like natural teeth because they’re made from materials, like porcelain or composite resin, that have a similar color and translucency as your natural tooth enamel.

How do veneers improve my smile?

Veneers mask cosmetic imperfections in your smile and allow you to redesign the size, shape, and color of your teeth. With veneers, you can improve several imperfections, including teeth that are:

  • Chipped 
  • Worn-down
  • Stained or discolored
  • Mottled
  • Misshapen
  • Too small
  • Crooked
  • Gapped

With veneers, you can fully redesign the appearance of your teeth to give you a smile you’ll be proud to share.

What are the advantages of veneers?

As a cosmetic procedure, veneers have many benefits, including:

  • Stain-resistance
  • Natural appearance
  • Minimally invasive procedure

Veneers are one of the easiest and most effective ways to improve the appearance of your smile.

What’s involved in getting veneers?

First, you have a consultation with the team at Union Square Dental to discuss what you hope to achieve with your veneers. Some patients like to bring in photos of smiles that they admire to show their dentist just how they want their new smile to look.

Next, you and your dentist select a size, shape, and color for your veneers that best enhance your smile while complementing the rest of your facial features. Then, your dentist prepares your teeth for your veneers. This involves making room for the veneers by shaving a very thin layer of enamel from the front of your teeth. 

After your dentist prepares your teeth, they take an impression of your mouth. The impression is sent to a lab that fabricates your veneers, and you wear a set of temporary veneers in the meantime. 

You come back to Union Square Dental a few weeks later when your permanent veneers are back from the lab. Your dentist checks that they fit comfortably and look good, then seals them in place with dental cement.
