Veneers Q & A

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are a cosmetic dentistry option that uses incredibly thin porcelain “shells” to cover the visible portion of your teeth. It is a versatile treatment that can accomplish numerous things at once. 

Some of the dental issues that veneers can address include:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Stains
  • Decay
  • Crooked teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Minor misalignment

Best of all, getting a set of veneers allows you to customize the appearance of your smile. Veneers are not a one-size-fits-all solution, and you’ll play a vital role in crafting your new smile. 

What is the process for getting dental veneers?

The planning process is the most important step in getting dental veneers. Savannah Dental uses digital technology to map out your current dental structure. This information allows your team to design veneers that will be both beautiful and natural-looking. 

The dentists at Savannah Dental are trained in the Digital Smile Design system, a treatment protocol that uses digital technology and videography to create veneers that align with your dental and facial structure. You’ll be able to see what your new smile will look like, and even see yourself speaking on-screen with your new veneers! 

When the time comes to begin your veneers, your dentist begins by removing a small portion of your natural tooth tissue. This makes room for the veneers to fit, and you’ll receive a set of temporary veneers to wear while the dental lab crafts your custom veneers. 

Once your veneers are ready you’ll return to have them checked for fit and color before they’re cemented into place. You’ll walk out with a smile you’ll love sharing with the world. 

What kind of care do dental veneers need?

Once your veneers are in place they’re very durable, and require no special care. You should continue brushing and flossing to avoid decay and gum disease. Scheduling routine dental exams is also important. 

Always avoid biting down on hard foods or non-food items. You should never use your teeth to pry things open or hold items in place. Even chewing ice can damage your veneers, just like it can damage your natural teeth.
