Veneers Q&A

What are veneers?

Veneers are extremely thin porcelain, tooth-colored shells that Dr. Soleimani utilizes to quickly improve the appearance of your teeth. Veneers bond to the front surface of your teeth and can improve upon cosmetic issues such as:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Gaps between teeth

Dr. Soleimani can even use veneers to make your teeth look more uniform in length.

How can I get veneers?

Veneers are a semi-permanent solution for many people who want to improve the appearance of their teeth. To begin the process, start by reaching out to Dental Aesthetics and Wellness Center to set up a consultation.

During your consultation, Dr. Soleimani evaluates your teeth and looks for any disqualifying factors, like tooth decay, gum disease, or tooth infection. If you’re struggling with issues like these, you must undergo treatment before you can get your veneers.

If Dr. Soleimani approves you for veneers, during your next appointment she shaves a tiny bit of enamel from your teeth. This makes it possible for her to later bond the veneers flush with your natural teeth. 

After she removes some of your tooth enamel, Dr. Soleimani makes a mold of your teeth and sends it to the lab, where they make your custom porcelain veneers.

Once your veneers are ready, Dr. Soleimani preps your teeth by cleaning and etching them. The etching process makes it easier for the veneers to adhere to your teeth. 

Next, she applies a biocompatible dental cement to the surface of your teeth and places the veneers. To harden the cement and bond the veneers quickly, Dr. Soleimani places them under an ultraviolet light.

How long do veneers last?

Porcelain veneers typically last between 10 and 15 years. To keep them in excellent condition, it’s important that you:

  • Avoid chewing on hard objects like ice, your fingernails, or pens
  • Eat harder foods using your back teeth rather than your front teeth
  • Avoid food and drink that can easily stain your veneers
  • Observe good oral hygiene

In addition, if you participate in sports, protect your veneers by always wearing a mouthguard. Likewise, if you grind or clench your teeth at night, invest in a night guard.

Porcelain veneers are an elegant, low-maintenance way to beautify your smile. To find out if they’re right for you, reach out to Dental Aesthetics and Wellness Center online or over the phone today.
