Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are wafer-thin, tooth-shaped shells that Dr. Nguyen permanently bonds to the front side of your teeth, where they cover up minor cosmetic imperfections. Made of porcelain, which has a similar color and translucency as your natural tooth enamel, veneers look like improved versions of your natural teeth.

What do dental veneers fix?

Veneers traditionally correct minor cosmetic imperfections. Because veneers mask the entire visible area of the tooth they’re sealed to, they can effectively cover up a number of defects, including:

  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Stains that don’t respond to teeth whitening treatments

They can also improve teeth that are:

  • Crooked
  • Worn or dull
  • Misshapen 
  • Spaced too far apart

Veneers give you a brand new smile, with a procedure that’s quick, easy, and minimally invasive.

What’s the process of getting veneers?

Your veneers start with a consultation at Ridge Commons Family Dentistry. You and Dr. Nguyen discuss how you’d like your dream smile to look, then pick a size, shape, and color for your veneers that best compliments your smile and the features of your face. 

Dr. Nguyen then makes room for your veneers by shaving off a very thin layer of enamel from the front of your teeth. She takes an impression of your prepared teeth to send to a lab, where a technician custom-builds your veneers to fit perfectly in your mouth and blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile. You go home with a set of temporary veneers while you wait for your permanent ones to come back from the lab. 

Once your permanent veneers are ready, you come back to Ridge Commons Family Dentistry for a second appointment. Dr. Nguyen removes your temporary veneers, checks that your permanent veneers fit comfortably and look great, and then permanently seals them to your teeth.

You leave the office ready to share your stunning and natural-looking new smile with the rest of the world.
