Porcelain Veneers Q & A

What are porcelain veneers?

Veneers at Charles M. Marks, DDS & Dental Associates are custom-made, tooth-colored porcelain shells. Your dentist can bond them to the front and sides of your natural teeth to improve the way they look. Veneers are often ideal if you have teeth that are:

  • Stained
  • Chipped
  • Cracked
  • Misshapen 
  • Too small
  • Gapped
  • Unsightly

Veneers are a simple, long-lasting, natural-looking solution for teeth with imperfections. Porcelain veneers available at Charles M. Marks, DDS & Dental Associates offer enhanced comfort at an affordable price.

Am I a good candidate for veneers?

To find out if veneers are the right solution for your teeth, a Charles M. Marks, DDS & Dental Associates specialist reviews your oral health history and examines your gums and teeth. They take dental X-rays and discuss your desired outcome. If you have tooth decay or gum disease, your dentist can treat these conditions before veneer placement.

What happens when getting veneers?

To prepare for veneer placement, your dentist creates a unique model of your teeth. They send the information to a dental lab, where technicians develop custom-fit veneers just for you. 

When the veneers are ready, your dentist prepares your teeth by removing a small portion of the enamel. They bond porcelain veneers over the top and sides of your teeth to perfect your smile.

How should I care for my new veneers?

Care for your new veneers by brushing your teeth twice daily and flossing every day. Don’t chew on hard objects like ice, hard candy, and popcorn kernels. Wear a mouthguard at night when you sleep if you’re a teeth grinder. Your dentist offers custom mouthguards to better protect your new veneers.

While porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, your provider might suggest you limit or avoid tea, coffee, tobacco, and red wine to maintain your gorgeous white smile long term. See the Charles M. Marks, DDS & Dental Associates team every six months for routine dental cleanings and exams.
