How it Works
What Are Veneers?
Veneers are a special type of dental prosthesis that are typically made out of porcelain. They are designed to cover up the front chewing surfaces of your teeth and enhance the appearance of your smile. Veneers are extremely versatile and durable, which is why they are one of the most popular methods of smile correction. Among other issues, veneers can treat chips, gaps, slightly-crooked or misshapen teeth, an uneven smile, and severe tooth stains that can’t be treated with whitening.
However, veneers are not intended to restore damaged teeth. They are merely cosmetic and cannot address oral damage or tooth decay. An alternative treatment like a dental crown may be required to repair a damaged tooth.
What to Expect
The Veneers Placement Process
The entire veneer treatment process usually requires two appointments over a 2-3 week period at Yunbelievable Smiles. At your first appointment, your teeth will be prepared for veneers and Dr. Yun will numb and clean your mouth. Then, a very thin layer of enamel will be removed from the teeth that will be receiving veneers. This ensures that your new veneers fit seamlessly over your teeth.
Dr. Yun will take images and dental impressions of your teeth, and send this information to a trusted dental lab where your veneers will be custom-made. When your veneers arrive, you’ll come in for your last appointment. Dr. Yun will check each veneer and make sure that they fit perfectly. Your veneers will be permanently attached with a powerful dental cement to complete the procedure.
What You Need to Know
Are Veneers Permanent?
Veneers are a permanent, irreversible procedure. To make sure that your veneers are not bulky and that they fit onto your teeth permanently, a thin layer of enamel must be removed. Though this layer is relatively thin, it will mean that you can’t have your veneer treatment reversed.
