How do veneers work?

Custom porcelain veneers are made to fit over your teeth and cover up any imperfections that are keeping your from a confident smile. During your procedure, Dr. Barker will remove a small amount of enamel to make room for the veneers, take an impression of your teeth, and cement your custom-made veneers on top of your teeth to restore your smile. Visit our office or call us today to learn more about how veneers can improve the appearance of your smile.

Are veneers right for me?

Veneers can correct a number of imperfections and give you a confident smile. If you have chipped, stained, misaligned, or unevenly spaced teeth, veneers might be the right option for you. Custom porcelain veneers are thin shells of resin that are made to perfectly fit over your teeth and improve the appearance of your smile. Since this procedure is minimally invasive and requires no surgery, veneers are a great option for patients who are afraid of needles or who don't want to undergo extensive treatment to get a beautiful smile.

How much do veneers cost?

Veneers are an investment in your smile and your dental health, and the cost can vary depending on the condition of your teeth. At Cardinal Family Dentistry, we have resources to help all of our patients keep the cost of treatment within your budget. Give us a call to speak with our friendly team and discuss our accepted insurances and our flexible financing options.

How Long Does It Take To Get Veneers?

Getting a set of veneers usually takes two appointments. First, you’ll need to come in to have your tooth prepared. During this appointment, Dr. Barker will take impressions of your smile in order to create your custom veneers, and you’ll be sent home with a set of temporary veneers.

When your permanent veneers are complete, you’ll come back in for your last appointment and Dr. Barker will permanently attach them using special dental cement. The entire process usually takes about 3 weeks, and typically takes only a few hours in the dentist’s chair. This makes it one of the fastest and most efficient ways to restore your entire smile and fix cosmetic dental issues like serious stains, gaps, slightly crooked or misshapen teeth.

What’s The Difference Between Cosmetic Crowns And Veneers?

Cosmetic crowns are also made of porcelain and used to restore your smile, but the primary difference is that cosmetic crowns are intended to restore the entire chewing surface of your tooth. This makes a cosmetic crown much stronger, but also means much more enamel must be removed to create a strong platform upon which the crown can be attached.

In contrast, veneers cover up the front surface of your tooth and do not require the removal of very much enamel. This makes veneers ideal for teeth that do not require restoration but only have cosmetic imperfections like stains, minor chips, and gaps.

Are Veneers Permanent?

Yes. The placement of veneers requires Dr. Barker to remove a thin layer of enamel from each tooth that is being treated. While this layer is usually only 0.5mm thick, this does mean that it is not possible to reverse the veneer treatment process. It is permanent, and you will need to get another set of veneers if your current veneers wear out or become damaged. However, veneers can easily last 10-20 years with proper care, so proper brushing and flossing is critical if you want your veneers to be pristine for years to come.

Is Veneer Placement Painful?

No. While a small amount of enamel must be removed from your teeth to place veneers, this is not painful and numbing agents are rarely required. You will feel a bit of vibration and pressure, but we do everything we can to keep you comfortable throughout your entire treatment. Once the procedure is finished, you can get right back to your day-to-day life.
