Veneers Q & A

What are dental veneers?

Veneers are durable, stain-resistant porcelain dental treatments that cover the fronts of your teeth to create a beautiful and uniform smile. Each veneer is custom-made to fit your teeth precisely and is bonded to your teeth for a cosmetic improvement that can last up to 20 years with proper care. Many people choose veneers because they are quick to apply and provide you with a perfect smile.

What dental imperfections do veneers correct?

Dr. Chung uses veneers to cover a variety of dental imperfections, such as:

  • Discoloration that won’t respond to bleaching
  • Teeth that are unevenly sized or shaped
  • Gaps
  • Teeth that are chipped

How are veneers fitted?

In most cases, Dr. Chung fits veneers in two painless visits.

The first veneers appointment

At the first appointment, Dr. Chung carefully removes a very thin layer of tooth enamel so your veneers sit flush against your other teeth for a smooth, natural appearance. He takes an impression of your teeth, which is used to custom-create your veneers. Before you go home, Dr. Chung fits you with a temporary veneer to protect your teeth while your permanent veneers are made.

The second veneers appointment

When your permanent veneers are ready, Dr. Chung removes the temporary veneers and fits your new permanent veneers. He checks your bite and the fit of the veneers before permanently bonding them to your teeth. Finally, he polishes your veneers until they shine like your natural teeth.

How should I take care of my veneers?

Taking care of dental veneers is very simple. Even though the porcelain is stain-resistant, you still need to brush for two minutes at least twice a day and floss daily. It’s also important to attend your routine dental checkups and cleanings so Dr. Chung can keep an eye on your dental health and remove any buildup of plaque or tartar from your teeth.
