Veneers Q & A
What are dental veneers?
A bright, beautiful smile is one of the greatest gifts you can have. While regularly brushing and flossing your teeth can help to maintain a healthy mouth, many people will develop imperfections to their smiles at some point in their life. When this happens, cosmetic dental treatments such as dental veneers can help to bring back your white teeth and a bright smile.
A dental veneer is essentially a shell-like dental fixture that is placed over your tooth. It is held in place by a special bonding agent, serving as a long-lasting and effective treatment. Once bonded to your tooth, these custom-made caps serve to improve the color, shape, length, or size of the tooth.
The team at Comfort Care Dental works with you to develop a customized plan of care in order to achieve your goals.
When are dental veneers used?
Because of their design, dental veneers can address a range of issues that impact the appearance of your teeth. It is possible for your teeth to become discolored due to improper care, certain prescription drugs, or root canal treatments. When this happens, dental veneers can effectively improve the color of your teeth without requiring a full tooth replacement.
In addition, a dental veneer can serve to reshape a tooth that has been chipped, broken, or worn down. Dental veneers are also used to close the spaces between teeth when necessary, or correct misaligned and irregularly shaped teeth.

What can I expect at my appointment?
Initially, you discuss your goals with the team at Comfort Care Dental and develop a plan of care. They take an impression of your teeth, which is used to make the custom-shaped veneers. When the veneers are ready, the team trims down the enamel of your tooth to create space for the veneer.
The surface of the tooth is then prepared, and the veneer is bonded firmly into place using special cement. The team at Comfort Care Dental then adjusts the veneer as needed to ensure a proper fit.
