Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are coverings for your visible teeth. They’re thin, tooth-shaped shells that Dr. Boado permanently bonds to the front side of your teeth, where they cover up cosmetic imperfections and reshape your smile to be more in line with how you’d like it to look. 

Veneers are incredibly effective at transforming your smile and require a procedure that’s only minimally invasive. Because of this, they’re one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments available today.

What aspects of my smile can veneers improve?

Veneers cover up the entire front side of your teeth, effectively giving you a brand new smile, cosmetically speaking. Some of the particular flaws that veneers can treat include:

  • Cracked, chipped, or fractured teeth
  • Teeth that are spaced too widely apart
  • Staining that hasn’t responded to a professional whitening treatment
  • Teeth that are misshapen or too small

And because you can personally select the size, shape, and color of your veneers, they can redesign your smile to be perfectly in line with how you’d like it to look.

What are veneers made from?

Veneers are typically made from porcelain or composite resin, both of which are durable materials that have a color and translucency very similar to your natural tooth enamel.

Hollister Smiles Dental: Diana Boado, DDS, also offers Empress® veneers, which use a special heat-pressed glass ceramic that’s remarkably more durable and fracture-resistant. 

That means less of a likelihood of chipping or breaking your veneers, which means fewer dental visits and a lower cost over the long term.

What is the process of getting veneers?

First, you and Dr. Boado have a consultation to discuss what you’re hoping to get out of veneers. You might want to bring pictures of smiles that you admire in order to help Dr. Boado visualize the type of look you want to achieve.

Then, you select a size, shape, and color for your veneers, and Dr. Boado removes a thin layer of enamel from the front side of your teeth. 

She takes an impression or mold of your smile and sends it off to an off-site dental laboratory that specializes in custom-building your veneers so they fit perfectly on your teeth.

You wear a set of temporary veneers until your permanent ones are ready, at which point you come back to Dr. Boado so she can permanently seal them to your teeth.
