What is the process for dental veneers?

The process for getting dental veneers involves several steps. Dr. Neaville will conduct a comprehensive examination to assess your oral health and smile goals. Then, a thin layer of enamel must be removed so impressions of the teeth can be taken, and the specifications for the veneers will be sent to a dental laboratory for fabrication. Once the permanent veneers are ready, the temporary veneers will be removed, and the new ones will be bonded to the teeth using a special adhesive. The final step is to make any necessary adjustments to ensure a comfortable fit and natural appearance.

Will veneers make my teeth sensitive?

While it’s possible for some individuals to experience temporary sensitivity after getting veneers, it typically resolves on its own within a short period. The sensitivity is usually mild and may occur due to the removal of a small amount of enamel during the preparation of the teeth. Practicing good oral hygiene and avoiding foods and beverages that are extremely hot, cold, or acidic in the days following the placement of your veneers can help reduce sensitivity. It’s essential to communicate any concerns about sensitivity with our team so we can provide appropriate guidance and recommendations.

How long do dental veneers last?

The lifespan of porcelain veneers can vary depending on several factors, including the material used and the patient’s oral hygiene practices and individual habits. On average, porcelain veneers can last between 15 to 20 years with proper care and maintenance, including regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene habits. During your routine dental exams, we will assess the condition of your veneers and other dental restorations and let you know when we believe they need to be repaired or replaced.
