Veneers Q & A

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers available at Flatlands Dental Care are tooth-colored shells that improve the look and function of teeth that are damaged, discolored, or have minor imperfections. The veneers bond to the front of your teeth and look just like beautiful natural teeth. They’re a noninvasive option for a smile makeover.

What are the advantages of veneers?

The benefits of receiving dental veneers are teeth that are:

  • Beautiful 
  • Whiter
  • Brighter
  • Even-shaped
  • Stronger
  • Long-lasting
  • Not gapped
  • Perfect

The process of receiving veneers is painless, and your dentist only needs to remove a small amount of your tooth’s enamel before attaching veneers to your teeth.

Am I a candidate for dental veneers?

Veneers may be the perfect option for you if you have minor tooth imperfections. However, if you have severe dental problems, you might need crowns, bridges, dental implants, or dentures. If your teeth are already beautiful but have minor decay, you may simply need a filling, fluoride treatment, or teeth whitening.

Your dentist examines your gums and teeth and reviews the results of your dental X-rays to determine if you’re a candidate for veneers. They then personalize your treatment plan.

What happens during veneer placement?

When receiving your veneers, the Flatlands Dental Care team scans your teeth and mouth. They often remove a small amount of the enamel from your natural teeth before using dental adhesive to secure the veneers.

There’s no downtime after you get veneers, so you can head back to work or resume a normal routine. If you experience tenderness, ask your dentist about taking over-the-counter medications to relieve the discomfort.

How should I care for new veneers?

Properly caring for veneers is the best way to ensure they last a long time. Don’t chew on hard objects, and wear a nightguard if you grind your teeth while sleeping. Brush your teeth after eating, don’t forget to floss daily, and see the Flatlands Dental Care team every six months for dental exams and cleanings.
