Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin layerings made of porcelain that are bonded over teeth to help improve the appearance of smile flaws. Dr. Roytberg bonds veneers onto your natural teeth with a special dental adhesive. With a set of veneers, you can hide cosmetic concerns and show off a healthier-looking smile.

This procedure is a great option if your smile is affected by:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Gaps in your smile
  • Discolored teeth
  • Crooked teeth or a bad bite

Veneers are sturdy and durable enough to last, and you don’t have to alter your diet. You can keep eating your favorite foods without constantly worrying about damaging them.

What is the process of getting veneers like?

During your first visit, Dr. Roytberg takes detailed impressions of your teeth that are used to make your new veneers. Then, in a simple procedure, he files down your teeth slightly to reduce the size of certain teeth, providing your veneers with enough room to fit.

Next, an outside dental lab uses those impressions to produce your veneers according to Dr. Roytberg’s specifications. It typically takes 1-2 weeks to finish a new set of veneers.

Once your veneers are ready, you’ll return for a follow-up fitting to ensure comfort and proper function. At this visit, Dr. Roytberg uses a special dental adhesive to bond your veneers to your natural teeth.

What are the benefits of veneers?

A new set of veneers will instantly boost your self-confidence, as they can vastly enhance your appearance. When you look in the mirror with your new set of veneers, you’ll see the smile of your dreams. Best of all, unlike many other cosmetic dentistry procedures, the process involves no oral surgery or any invasive dental work.

Beyond the cosmetic benefits, veneers also help restore your oral health. Chips, cracks, and gaps often impair functions such as chewing, speech, and digestion. Veneers can vastly improve these functions and, in the process, restore your overall quality of life.

How long do veneers last?

To make sure your veneers last, it’s essential that you take good care of your veneers. In most cases, they can last up to 15 years, if not longer. However, the lifespan of your new veneers often depends largely on you. Make sure to treat your veneers just like you care for your natural teeth. Continue brushing and flossing regularly, and maintain your regularly scheduled checkups to monitor your veneers.
