What Are Dental Veneers?

Veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments , but what are they exactly? In short, they are crafted from high-quality dental materials, like porcelain, and made into thin shells that are about the size of your fingernail. When attached to the front-facing surface of your teeth, veneers can conceal a wide range of dental flaws, including chipped, discolored, misshapen, and gapped teeth. Plus, the size, shape, and shade can be completely customized to your specific aesthetic goals, ensuring the end result is absolutely gorgeous!

The Process of Getting Veneers

Starting from the very beginning, the treatment process starts with your consultation with Dr. Sehnert . Once he confirms that you’re a candidate, he will create your custom treatment plan with you, which involves choosing the ideal shape, size, and shade of your veneers. Then, he will “prep” your teeth by removing a sliver of enamel, taking impressions, and bonding temporary veneers in place. Once the lab artisans have crafted your final veneers and sent them to us, you’ll return to our office to have them secured in place. Before you leave, we will also give you detailed instructions on how to take care of your new and improved smile so the results last!

Veneer FAQs

Veneers are gaining popularity in cosmetic dentistry due to their long-lasting and versatile benefits. If you're considering this treatment, you may have some questions. Luckily, we've addressed some common questions below for your peace of mind. Should you have any lingering concerns, feel free to reach out to our team at Sehnert Precision Dentistry – we're here to assist you!

Are Veneers Permanent?

No! They will need to be replaced at some point. However, the process of applying veneers is irreversible. This is because a small amount of enamel is filed away to ensure the veneers fit properly on the teeth. Unfortunately, once enamel is removed, it does not grow back. Therefore, teeth that have been prepared for veneers will always need to be covered with either veneers or crowns.

Will I Still Be Able to Drink Coffee with Veneers?

Yes, you can still enjoy coffee with veneers made of porcelain. Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant because porcelain is a nonporous material. This means that particles in dark-colored foods and beverages have a tougher time seeping beneath the surface, reducing the likelihood of staining.

However, it's important to remember that while porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, they are not entirely stain-proof. Excessive consumption of coffee or other dark-colored beverages could still have a negative impact over time. To ensure your veneers stay looking their best for as long as possible, it's best to enjoy these beverages in moderation.

Do Veneers Give You a Lisp?

It’s certainly possible to experience a temporary lisp when you first get veneers. This can happen because the tongue is not accustomed to the presence of the veneers, affecting muscle memory and the way it moves. The lisp is most noticeable when trying to pronounce sounds like "s" and "v."

Don’t worry, the tongue will naturally adjust to the veneers. You can also practice pronouncing certain sounds to help expedite the process. In some cases, slight adjustments will be made to the thickness of the veneers in specific areas to alleviate the lisp. So, while a lisp may occur initially, it is usually a temporary adjustment period.

How Are Veneers Different Than Crowns?

Veneers and dental crowns share a common material: dental porcelain, known for its durability and natural appearance. The key distinction lies in their coverage. A crown envelops the entire visible portion of a tooth, while a veneer only conceals its front surface. Crowns offer both restorative and cosmetic advantages, safeguarding teeth from potential damage. However, they do require more enamel removal compared to veneers.

When you consult with our team, we will provide a detailed overview of the benefits and considerations for each treatment. Together, we’ll determine the best option tailored to your specific needs and preferences.
