What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are a great solution for crowded, chipped, and stained teeth. Veneers are thin shells placed on the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance, hiding any noticeable flaws and creating a straight, even look. They can also be adjusted to match the natural color of your teeth and are applied with minimal discomfort. Dental veneers are strong and durable and can last many years before needing replacement or repairs.

The dental veneer process:

We custom-design each set of dental veneers based on your individual needs. To achieve the desired results, we will schedule two appointments with you. During the first appointment, we will take impressions of your teeth. At the second appointment, we will apply and adjust the veneers to fit your teeth perfectly.

Hamilton Family Dentistry would love to help if you’re considering dental veneers. Our team can guide you through the process, from consultation to the final application. Book your visit now and take the first step toward a brighter smile.

    Does dental insurance cover veneers?

    Dental insurance often doesn’t cover veneers since they’re considered a cosmetic procedure. However, there may be exceptions if the veneers are deemed necessary for dental health, such as covering jagged edges or correcting a malocclusion. Please contact our office for more information.

  • Do dental veneers stain?

    Unlike natural tooth enamel, porcelain veneers are known for their resistance to staining. This is because porcelain, the material most commonly used for veneers, is non-porous and doesn’t absorb common stain-causing substances like coffee and red wine. Porcelain veneers maintain their color and brightness for many years without the staining that natural teeth might experience.

    However, composite veneers, made from resin, are more porous than porcelain and can stain over time, similar to natural teeth. They typically have a shorter lifespan of about five to seven years before needing replacement due to wear or discoloration.

    Maintaining the appearance of your veneers involves regular dental hygiene practices, such as brushing with a soft-bristled toothbrush, using non-abrasive toothpaste, and flossing daily. Limiting exposure to staining foods and drinks and visiting your dentist regularly for check-ups and professional cleanings is also recommended. These steps will help ensure the longevity and brightness of your veneers.

  • How to care for veneers:

    To maintain the appearance and ensure the longevity of your dental veneers, follow these key steps:

    • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to brush and avoid scratching the veneers.
    • Choose non-abrasive toothpaste to prevent wearing down the veneer surface. Shop our top recommendations for dental care products, here!

    • Limit your intake of foods and drinks that can stain, like coffee, tea, and red wine.
    • Rinse your mouth with water after consuming staining substances to minimize exposure.
    • Schedule regular dental check-ups and professional cleanings to maintain oral health and veneer appearance.
