Veneers

What are veneers?

Veneers, also known as dental porcelain laminates, are one of the easiest and least invasive ways to instantly improve the cosmetic appearance of your smile. 

They’re wafer-thin shells are made out of tooth-colored porcelain and look just like the front-facing portion of your visible teeth.

Veneers are custom-designed to fit over your teeth, where they’re permanently sealed to upgrade the look of your smile.

What conditions do veneers treat?

Veneers are like reupholstery for your smile. They go over your existing teeth and fully cover any cosmetic flaws or defects that would otherwise be visible, such as:

  • Cracks
  • Chips
  • Stains that aren’t responsive to professional whitening treatments
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Short teeth
  • Widely spaced teeth

Veneers also serve noncosmetic functions, such as reinforcing a tooth that’s cracked or weakened.

What are some of the benefits of veneers?

As a restorative solution, veneers have a number of benefits. For example, they:

  • Offer stain resistance
  • Don’t require special maintenance
  • Don’t irritate your gums
  • Are more affordable than most orthodontic work

The process of fitting you with veneers is also minimally invasive and only requires you to reduce a very small amount of enamel. Convenience and effectiveness are what make veneers one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures offered today.

What’s the process of getting veneers?

Your journey toward veneers begins with a consultation. You and Dr. Gelman discuss your aesthetic goals and pick out a size, shape, and color for your veneers that best compliments your natural features and enhances the beauty of your smile.

Next, Dr. Gelman shaves a thin layer of enamel off the front-facing portion of your teeth to make room for the veneers. The amount of enamel that he files off is equivalent to the thickness of the veneers, which are incredibly thin.

Once your teeth are prepared, Dr. Gelman takes an impression. He sends that impression to a lab that designs and fabricates your veneers to fit comfortably in your mouth and blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile. 

Dr. Gelman sends you home with temporary veneers while you wait for your permanent ones to come back from the lab.

You’ll come back for a second visit when your permanent veneers are ready. Dr. Gelman removes your temporary solution, cleans your mouth, then places the veneers one-by-one on your teeth. 

Once you both determine that the size, shape, color, and fit are to your liking, he permanently seals them with a dental cement. You leave his office with a smile that you’re proud to share with the world.
