Veneers Q & A

Are veneers right for me?

Veneers help re-create the appearance of your natural teeth with a thin layer of porcelain. They are placed on your front teeth to make them more aesthetically pleasing. Each veneer is custom-fitted to your individual teeth, then one of the skilled cosmetic dentists at Barbara K. Galbreath, DMD bonds them to your existing teeth. Veneers cover blemishes such as misshapen teeth, stains, cracks, or gaps. They can also restore weak teeth.

Veneers can be constructed out of resin composite materials, but porcelain is the most stain-resistant material. Porcelain also tends to look more like your natural enamel. One of the experienced dental team members explains your options and recommends the best type of veneers for your specific needs.

How do I get veneers?

After a meeting to talk through your veneer options and the results you’d like to see, you come back to Dr. Galbreath for a second appointment. At this appointment, one of the professional cosmetic dental experts takes off a minuscule amount of enamel from the surface of your existing teeth to shape them in preparation for the veneers. After your teeth are ready, your dental practitioner takes a mold of your teeth and sends it to the lab, where technicians will make your custom veneers.

When your veneers are ready, you come back to have the veneers fitted to each tooth. Once your teeth are entirely prepared for the bonding process, the dental specialist applies a unique adhesive and light beam. This step helps the cement bond firmly to the porcelain. Voila! Once the cement dries, you have a new and upgraded smile!

What are some advantages of veneers?

Veneers offer a natural-looking solution for broken, crooked, or misshapen teeth. Also, they provide the following benefits:

  • Resistance to stains
  • Little gum irritation
  • Can lighten darker teeth
  • Aesthetically pleasing with minimal dental work
  • Reinforce weak teeth
  • Less expensive than some other dental procedures like crowns
