How it Works
What Are Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite resin that are custom-made to fit over your teeth, providing a natural, attractive look. They can be used to fix chipped, stained, misaligned, worn down, uneven, or abnormally spaced teeth. With Dr. Lascari's help, you can completely transform the aesthetics of your smile in a matter of 2-3 weeks. Plus, veneers require no special care beyond regular brushing and flossing.
Candidates for Veneers
Are Veneers Right for Me?
Veneers are a good option for treating most cosmetic issues with your smile. They can be used to treat stained teeth, gaps in your smile, uneven teeth, slightly crooked teeth, misshapen teeth, and more.
However, your mouth must be free of cavities and gum disease. These issues, if present, must be treated before you can get any cosmetic dental treatment. Beyond minor chips, veneers also cannot be used to treat damaged teeth. An alternative treatment like a dental crown may be more appropriate. To find out if you’re a good candidate for veneers, contact Cornerstone Dentistry.
What to Expect
The Veneer Placement Process
The veneer placement process usually takes two appointments at Cornerstone Dentistry. At your first appointment, your teeth will be trimmed to prepare them for your veneers. Dr. Lascari will begin by cleaning your mouth and numbing the treatment area.
Next, Dr. Lascari will remove a very thin layer of enamel from each tooth that is getting a veneer. This is done to ensure that the veneers bond tightly to your teeth and that they don’t add any extra bulk to your smile.
After your teeth have been prepared, Dr. Lascari will take images and dental impressions of your teeth. These will be used by a trusted dental lab to build your final set of veneers. While you wait for your permanent veneers to be manufactured, you will wear a set of temporary veneers to protect your teeth.
Once your permanent veneers arrive at Cornerstone Dentistry, you’ll come in for your last appointment. Dr. Lascari will check each veneer to make sure they fit perfectly, then bond each one in place permanently with dental cement. Finally, your new teeth will be buffed and polished to ensure they look completely natural.
