Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin porcelain shells designed to transform your smile. By affixing veneers to the surface of your teeth with special dental cement, Dr. Ashitey quickly and completely transforms the appearance of your teeth. 

Aesthetic Dentistry & Implant Center uses porcelain for the veneer material because it’s durable, resists staining, and perfectly matched the natural sheen of your teeth. 

Veneers are an ideal way to correct your smile if you’re suffering from:

  • A chipped tooth
  • Tooth staining or discoloration
  • Uneven teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Teeth with an uneven surface

The veneer lays over the surface of your tooth, perfecting its appearance. Each veneer will be custom-shaped to fit perfectly in your mouth and to match the color and shape of your surrounding teeth so you get a stunning, natural-looking smile. 

What’s the process like for getting veneers?

The process for getting your veneers is straightforward, but it does require two separate visits to Aesthetic Dentistry & Implant Center. 

During your first appointment, Dr. Ashitey figures out the right shade and shape for your veneer. He then prepares your tooth by removing an extremely small amount of your enamel so that the veneer can lay flush with any surrounding teeth. Dr. Ashitey uses the WaterLase® dental laser to ensure precision and to minimize your discomfort during this process. Then, he places a temporary veneer on your prepared tooth to protect it while your veneers are custom-created. 

Once your veneers are ready, you’ll come in for a second appointment, during which Dr. Ashitey places your veneers. He uses dental adhesive to affix the veneer to your tooth so that you can eat, drink, talk, and laugh normally for years to come. After placement, he ensures that your veneers are perfectly colored and aligned to give you a bright, beautiful, straight smile. 

How do I take care of veneers?

Caring for your veneers is extremely simple. You just need to maintain them like you would your natural teeth. That means regular brushing, flossing, and biannual visits to Aesthetic Dentistry & Implant Center for cleanings and exams. With proper care, veneers can last a decade or more. 

If you’re unhappy with your smile, veneers are an easy way to completely transform your teeth with just a couple of visits to Dr. Ashitey and the team at Aesthetic Dentistry & Implant Center.
