Smile Like the Stars in Just Two Appointments

No matter what kind of movies, TV shows, or music you’re into, there is at least one thing they have in common—everyone in them has an absolutely perfect smile. How is this possible? The answer is simple—most of them have received cosmetic dentistry, namely veneers! Fortunately, you can get the same treatment as the stars, enjoy the same quality, and likely pay a fraction of what they did!

What Are Dental Veneers?

A veneer is a small shell made of porcelain that is bonded to the front surface of a tooth in order to improve its shape, size, color, and spacing. You can get one to fix a problem tooth or an entire set to achieve a dramatic makeover in relatively little time. It has been a go-to treatment for celebrities and everyday people for decades, and that's because the process is easy, the results are gorgeous, and they can be trusted to last for about 15-20 years.

The Process of Getting Veneers

While every set of veneers we provide at Grand Dental Studio is 100% custom-made for each patient, the process to get them is pretty consistent, and it involves three basic steps:

  • Consultation: You’ll have a chance to sit down with your cosmetic dentist and explain what you would like to change about your smile. They’ll present you with all sorts of treatment options including veneers if they suit your situation.
  • Preparation: If you and your dentist decide on veneers, they will start the procedure by removing a very thin layer of enamel from the teeth that will be covered by them. This will allow the veneers to lie flat and prevent them from looking bulky or fake. An impression will be taken of your teeth, and this will be sent to a lab to fabricate your veneers. In the meantime, you’ll be fitted with a temporary set.
  • Completion: When your veneers are ready, you’ll return to Grand Dental Studio where your dentist will take off your temporaries and place your permanent ones. They’ll make final adjustments, check your bite, and make sure you’re completely satisfied before you leave with your brand-new smile.

The Benefits of Veneers

It’s amazing how much veneers can accomplish all at once. With a single procedure, they can:

  • Whiten the teeth and make them resistant to stains
  • Remove stains that don’t respond to whitening
  • Close gaps
  • Make the smile more balanced and proportional
  • Increase the size of undersized teeth
  • Fix chips and cracks
  • Reinforce weakened teeth
  • Decrease sensitivity
  • Improve the overall look of your face
  • Dramatically increase confidence

Veneers Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to get veneers?

On average, it takes about two to three appointments spaced a few weeks apart to receive veneers. However, if you have outstanding dental issues like cavities or gum disease, we will need to take care of these first. That’s because placing veneers on compromised teeth is a guaranteed way to make them not last long, and no one wants that! Of course, taking care of these problems will require more time, but it will also allow your veneers to endure and help you get the most out of your new smile.

Will I need to change my diet after I get veneers?

The diet recommendations we make for patients with veneers are basically the same as what we tell the rest of our patients. To avoid chipping your teeth or restorations, try to minimize eating extremely hard or crunchy foods. And while veneers are highly stain-resistant, that isn’t the same as stain-proof, so be judicious about enjoying richly pigmented sauces and drinks like coffee, wine, soda, etc. As always, it’s wise to limit your intake of foods with a lot of added sugar because while your veneers won’t get cavities, the teeth that support them definitely can!

Will my oral hygiene routine change with veneers?

Fortunately, brushing twice a day, flossing in the evening, and rinsing with an alcohol-free mouthwash is still the best way to keep your mouth clean and healthy, whether you have veneers or not. Something to keep in mind is that you should only use a soft-bristled toothbrush, as anything harder could scratch your veneers, and you don’t need to use whitening toothpaste as well. These usually contain abrasives that can damage the porcelain.

Will people notice if I have veneers?

Many people worry that after they get veneers, their teeth will look really bulky and obviously fake. This is why we remove a small amount of enamel before covering the teeth—this leads to a much more natural appearance. Also, thanks to our dentist’s keen eye and use of the highest quality materials, your final result will make you look like you were simply born lucky. Each smile is 100% personalized for every patient, so yours will not only be beautiful, but eye-catching in a way that is entirely unique to you.
