Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin layerings made of porcelain that are bonded over teeth to help improve the appearance of smile flaws. With a set of veneers, you can hide cosmetic concerns and show off a healthier-looking smile.

Dr. Schroeder bonds veneers onto your natural teeth using a strong dental adhesive. Veneers help enhance your smile, particularly if you’re dealing with:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Discoloration or stains on your teeth
  • Crooked teeth or a bad bite

Veneers are sturdy and durable enough to last, and you don’t have to alter your diet, so you don’t have to worry about missing out on your favorite foods and live in fear of damaging your veneers.

What is the process of getting veneers like?

The first step of getting your new veneers made and placed is coming into the office and meeting with Dr. Schroeder to get impressions of your teeth taken. These impressions will then be used to make your new veneers.

After Dr. Schroeder gets your veneer measurements, she files down your teeth slightly in a simple procedure, reducing the size of certain teeth to give your veneers enough room to fit.

Then, an outside dental lab custom-produces your new veneers according to Dr. Schroeder’s specifications. It typically takes 1-2 weeks to finish a new set of veneers.

Once they’re ready, you’ll return for a follow-up visit for a fitting to check your veneers for comfort and proper function. At this visit, Dr. Schroeder uses a strong dental adhesive to bond your veneers to your natural teeth.

What are the benefits of veneers?

With veneers, you can transform your appearance for the better, which delivers you an incredible boost in self-confidence. Best of all, the process involves no complex oral surgery or any invasive dental work.

Outside of the cosmetic benefits, veneers also help restore your oral health. Chipped or cracked teeth often negatively impact essential functions such as chewing, speech, and digestion. Veneers can vastly improve these functions and, in the process, restore your overall quality of life.

How long do veneers last?

As long as you take good care of them, your veneers can last up to 15 years, if not more. However, the lifespan of your new veneers often depends on you. It’s important that you treat your veneers just like you would your natural teeth. Continue brushing and flossing regularly, and maintain your regularly scheduled checkups to monitor your veneers.
