Veneers Q & A

What are dental veneers?

If you aren’t happy with the appearance of your smile, talk to Dr. Johnson about dental veneers. Veneers are custom-made porcelain shells that cover the fronts of your teeth to create a beautiful, uniform smile.

Veneers are minimally invasive and are fully customizable. Dr. Johnson works with a specialist dental lab that focuses on creating veneers. A lab technician meets with you and Dr. Johnson to learn about your needs and desires for your smile, including the shade, shape, color, and overall aesthetic you desire.

Dr. Johnson wants to give you a picture-perfect smile that looks natural and matches your adjacent teeth.

Why would I have veneers?

Veneers cover a wide range of imperfections. You may choose dental veneers to correct the appearance of:

  • Internal staining
  • Gaps
  • Misalignment
  • Unevenly shaped or sized teeth
  • Minor chips and cracks
  • Worn-down teeth

If you want to create a stunning, healthy smile, make an appointment with Dr. Johnson to find out if dental veneers are the right treatment for you.

How are veneers installed?

Dr. Johnson usually installs dental veneers in two appointments. During your first appointment, you meet with Dr. Johnson and the cosmetic dental lab technician to plan your new smile.

Then, Dr. Johson prepares your teeth for veneers by removing a thin layer of tooth enamel. This process creates space for your veneers to sit flush against the adjacent teeth for a natural appearance.

Then, Dr. Johnson takes molds and pictures of your teeth that the dental lab uses to make your custom veneers. Before you leave, Dr. Johnson applies temporary veneers to protect your teeth.

At your second appointment, Dr. Johnson removes your temporary veneers and fits your custom veneers onto your teeth. He checks the fit and bite before permanently bonding them to your teeth.

How should I take care of my veneers?

Taking care of dental veneers is easy. You simply brush and floss them along with your other teeth. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste twice a day and floss your teeth at least once a day.

Also, you need to have your routine dental checkups and cleanings with Dr. Johnson and his team. While your veneers aren’t vulnerable to decay, he still needs to monitor and treat your natural teeth.

If you’re ready to finally have a Hollywood-perfect smile, call Dr. Johnson or make an appointment online today to find out if dental veneers are right for you.
