Veneers Q & A

Kenneth Gonzales, D.D.S., P.L.L.C.

Are veneers right for me?

Veneers are thin porcelain shells designed to cover the front side of your teeth and enhance your natural smile. Before bonding the veneers to your existing teeth, one of the qualified dentists at Kenneth Gonzales, DDS, goes tooth by tooth to fit each veneer. Veneers hide defects such as misshapen teeth, stains, cracks, or gaps. They likewise help fortify weak teeth.

Porcelain remains the most stain-resistant material for making veneers, though veneers may also be created out of resin composite materials. Porcelain more closely resembles your actual teeth enamel, too. One of the dental team members reviews your options and recommends the best type of veneers for your specific needs.

What should I expect if I decide to get veneers?

Following the initial consultation to review your desired results and the kind of veneers that are best for you, you come back for a second appointment. At this appointment, one of the professional cosmetic dental experts takes off a minuscule amount of enamel from the surface of your existing teeth to shape them in preparation for the veneers. After your teeth are ready, your dental practitioner takes a mold of your teeth to create your individualized veneers in the dental lab.

When your veneers are finished, you return to the office, and your veneers are fitted one by one over your existing teeth. Your teeth are cleaned and etched to prepare them for the bonding process. A dental expert then applies a unique adhesive and light source which makes the cement bond securely to the porcelain. In no time at all, your veneers are securely in place, and you have a beautiful and improved smile.

What are the benefits of veneers?

Veneers provide a natural-looking way to correct crooked, cracked, or misshapen teeth. Additionally, they offer the following advantages:

  • Stain resistance
  • Little gum irritation
  • Ability to lighten darker teeth, so they appear whiter
  • Great results without invasive dental work
  • Teeth strengthening
  • Lower cost than some other dental procedures like crowns
