What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers transform a less-than-perfect smile into one that you just can’t wait to flash. This common cosmetic dentistry procedure involves thin sheets of porcelain that fit directly over the surface of your teeth. 

Veneers can correct one tooth or many that are visible when you smile and speak. 

Why would I need dental veneers?

Dental veneers are an effective way to correct many smile flaws. Dr. Mohrman may recommend them to improve the look of teeth that are: 

  • Discolored due to injury or medications
  • Slightly gapped
  • Mildly misaligned
  • Misshapen or uneven 
  • Cracked, fractured, or chipped
  • Smaller or shorter than normal

If dental veneers aren’t the best option for you, Dr. Mohrman can discuss other treatments or restorations, like teeth whitening or dental crowns, to help enhance your smile. 

What is involved in getting dental veneers?

Dr. Mohrman thoroughly checks your oral health before scheduling you for veneers. He wants to make sure you’re free of gum disease or dental decay. If you do have evidence of these or other issues, you may need treatment before the application of the veneers.

At your first veneer appointment, Dr. Mohrman removes a small portion of your existing enamel to make room for the veneers. He then takes impressions of your teeth to send to the lab so that technicians can fabricate the veneers according to the size, alignment, and shape of your teeth. 

Dr. Mohrman places temporary veneers to protect your teeth until your permanent veneers arrive. When you return to the office to have your customized veneers bonded to your teeth, Dr. Mohrman ensures proper fit and look. 

After your procedure, you can share your smile with the world immediately. 

Are dental veneers permanent?

Because Dr. Mohrman removes a portion of your regular enamel to place the veneers, they’re considered a permanent treatment. You should care for veneers just like you do your natural teeth. Your veneers last up to 10 years with good care, but you need to replace them eventually.
