Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are popular dental treatments that involve using a thin layer of porcelain to recreate the look and function of your natural teeth. Dr. Bhat and her team provide custom-fitted veneers that are carefully selected and bonded to improve your individual teeth.

Veneers are typically made from porcelain or resin. Porcelain is the most stain-resistant material of the two and is often a better match to your natural tooth enamel, but both resin and porcelain are durable and long-lasting.

Veneers can restore frail teeth. Dr. Bhat might also suggest veneers to cover up imperfections, such as stains, cracks, gaps, or misshapen teeth.

How do I get veneers?

The first step is an in-depth personal consultation to discuss your goals, questions, and concerns, and determine the best type of veneers for your individual needs. You usually come back for another appointment where Dr. Bhat prepares your teeth for the veneers.

To shape your existing teeth, Dr. Bhat removes a tiny amount of enamel from the surface. Once your teeth are prepared, Dr. Bhat produces a mold of your teeth and sends them to a lab where your individualized veneers are created.

When your veneers are sent back from the lab, you return to the office where Dr. Bhat custom-fits your veneers to each of your teeth. To prepare your teeth for the bonding process, Dr. Bhat carefully cleans and etches the surface of your teeth. She then applies a special cement and light source to make the adhesive bond securely to the veneer.

What are the advantages of veneers?

Dr. Bhat offers veneers due to the myriad benefits, such as:

  • More cost-effectiveness than other dental treatments
  • Stain resistance
  • Ability to lighten darker teeth
  • Doesn’t involve invasive dental work

Veneers are a natural-looking and effective way to correct crooked, cracked, or misshapen teeth. Veneers strengthen and protect your teeth and are well-tolerated by your gums.

Veneers could be a revolutionary dental solution for restoring your smile. During your initial consultation, Dr. Bhat can discuss the veneers process in detail and help you decide if they’re the most suitable treatment option.
