What problems can veneers address?
Veneers can correct a wide range of cosmetic problems to completely transform your smile. These issues include:
- Stains, especially intrinsic stains that are unresponsive to teeth whitening treatment
- Chips and cracks
- Worn or eroded teeth
- Proportionately small or irregularly shaped teeth
- Small gaps between teeth
- Slightly crooked teeth
Do veneers look natural?
Veneers are virtually identical to natural dental enamel. Your restorations will be custom-made to fit the shape of your teeth and match the color of your smile. Advanced dental porcelain also has a unique translucence that gives it a highly lifelike sparkle.
Does it hurt to get veneers?
The dental veneers placement process involves minimal discomfort. Dr. Sohl will remove a very small amount of enamel to make room for the restoration. However, he will numb your tooth before this step, so you should experience little more than a feeling of slight pressure.
How many veneers can I get?
The number of veneers you choose will depend on your goals and budget. You may choose to correct a single problem tooth or you could address your entire smile. No matter what, Dr. Sohl will create a treatment plan to meet your needs.
How do I maintain my veneers?
Veneers are very easy to care for. To protect your newly enhanced smile, you will simply need to maintain good oral hygiene and receive routine dental cleanings. You should also avoid putting undue pressure on your teeth. For example, biting your nails or using your teeth to open packages can chip the porcelain.
Can I replace my veneers?
With proper care, teeth veneers can last ten years or more. At this time, you can often replace your veneers. However, you must have enough enamel to support an additional restoration. If you do not qualify for dental veneers replacement, Dr. Sohl can recommend a lifelike alternative, such as dental bonding.
