What Are Veneers?

At its core, veneers are thin, enamel-colored shells crafted from composite resin or, ideally, porcelain. Once they are bonded to the visible portion of your teeth, they can cover a variety of imperfections, such as:

  • Minor chips and cracks
  • Misshaped or disproportionally small teeth
  • Discoloration or stains that traditional teeth whitening can’t remove
  • Small gaps between the teeth
  • Slight misalignment

Process for Getting Veneers

Your journey to your new and improved smile will begin with a consultation with our team at Carlson Dental Group. During this appointment, we will discuss your smile goals in-depth and conduct a thorough dental exam. Once we’ve confirmed veneers are the best treatment option for you, we will begin the tooth preparation process, which requires removing a small portion of your enamel. Then, impressions of your teeth will be sent to the lab so your permanent set can be meticulously crafted by expert artisans. Next, we will provide you with temporary veneers to test drive until we receive your permanent ones a few weeks later. From there, all that’s left for you to do is return to our office for final placement.

Benefits of Veneers

Year after year, veneers continue to be a leading cosmetic treatment option because of their:

  • Life-like appearance: Whether you are only fixing one tooth or undergoing a complete smile makeover, veneers can provide you with a new and improved smile that is life-like in look and feel.
  • Stain-resistant makeup: Unlike your natural teeth, veneers aren’t porous, which helps prevent the development of stubborn stains.
  • Durability: Veneers can last 10+ years with proper care.
  • Minimally invasive approach: While crowns cover the entire tooth, veneers only cover the front, which requires less removal of enamel.

Maintaining Your Veneers

  • Never open a package with your teeth
  • Wear a mouthguard if you play a sport or grind your teeth
  • Visit our team twice a year for a checkup and cleaning
