Veneers Q & A



What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are thin, wafer-like shells that are made from materials that mimic the natural coloring of your teeth, such as porcelain. The team at Woodland Lakes Dental Studio places the veneers over the fronts of your teeth, providing the perfect solution for any number of cosmetic concerns.

What can dental veneers accomplish?

Dental veneers are largely thought of as tools for covering up stained and discolored teeth, but veneers can accomplish much more, including:

  • Covering chips and cracks
  • Closing gaps between teeth
  • Covering a rotated or misshapen tooth

Dental veneers can even add length to teeth that are worn down.

What is the process for getting veneers?

If you decide that veneers are the best option for improving your smile, one of the team members at Woodland Lakes Dental Studio prepares your teeth to receive the veneers. They also take an impression of your teeth for the custom manufacture of your veneers.

You receive a temporary cover for your teeth while you wait for your set of veneers. Once your veneers are ready, you return to Woodland Lakes Dental Studio so your dental expert can bond them into place, making any necessary tweaks to ensure that your goals are met.

It’s important to note that veneers are an irreversible cosmetic solution because the team at Woodland Lakes Dental Studio removes a thin layer of enamel to make room for the shells. Once they remove your enamel, it doesn’t regenerate.

How do I take care of my veneers?

You take care of your dental veneers as you do your natural teeth, which means:

  • Brushing twice a day
  • Flossing once a day
  • Rinsing after meals
  • Keeping up with your regular dental cleanings

If you take good care of your dental veneers, they can provide you with a beautiful smile for years to come. If your veneers succumb to regular wear-and-tear, you simply return to Woodland Lakes Dental Studio to get fitted for new ones.
