Porcelain Veneers Q & A

Porcelain Veneers

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are cosmetic dentistry applications that the Silicon Valley Smile Solutions team uses to give your smile a dramatic transformation. The veneers themselves are extremely thin porcelain shells that are shaped and colored to match your surrounding teeth perfectly.

By bonding these veneers to the front of any tooth that has a problem, Dr. HagShenas offers a convenient way to transform that tooth — and your smile as a whole. 

What kind of smile issues can porcelain veneers correct?

Because a veneer can be placed on any tooth in your mouth, it’s an ideal way to fix virtually any cosmetic issue that’s bothering you. Dr. HagShenas has years of experience using veneers to treat:

  • Cracked teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Uneven teeth
  • Teeth that are too short
  • Chipped teeth

You can also choose to get veneers on all of your teeth, giving you a full smile transformation. 

What is the process like for getting veneers?

Getting veneers is a two-step process. During the first appointment, Dr. HagShenas talks with you about your smile goals and determines which teeth need veneers. 

He prepares those teeth by removing a small amount of enamel from the tooth’s front surface. This allows the veneer to lay flush with your gum line and the surrounding teeth once it’s in place. It also etches the surface of the tooth so the veneer can bond more securely. 

Then, Dr. HagShenas takes an impression of the prepared tooth so your veneer can be created to fit your tooth precisely. Once your veneer is ready, you return to the office, and Dr. HagShenas bonds it in place — you will leave that appointment with a beautiful smile. 

How do I take care of porcelain veneers?

Take care of your porcelain veneers the same way you care for your natural teeth. Brush and floss daily and visit Silicon Valley Smile Solutions twice a year for professional cleanings to keep your veneers strong and beautiful.

Also, take care to limit your consumption of staining substances like coffee, cola, red wine, and cigarettes. With proper care, your veneers should last several years.
