What are Veneers?

Veneers are made of a thin sheath of porcelain that is customized based on the specifications provided by Dr. Heil and our team. Using your desired tooth shape, size, and color, these unique restorations are made to blend in beautifully with the rest of your smile. They fit snugly over the surface of each tooth, creating a new and improved aesthetic that offers greater confidence.

They are designed to cover nearly all cosmetic imperfections, including:

  • Chipped/Cracked Teeth
  • Stains/Discoloration
  • “Short” or “Stubby” Teeth
  • Minor Misalignments
  • Minor Gaps Between Teeth

If you are interested in receiving veneers, you will need to be in good general oral health and have no signs of tooth decay or gum disease. If so, you will need to have these addressed before moving forward with any method of cosmetic treatment.

What is the Process for Receiving Veneers?

To be considered for veneers, you will first need to schedule a consultation with Dr. Heil. It is during this visit that he will examine your teeth and make note of all flaws you wish to hide. After evaluating your smile, he will determine if you are a qualified candidate for veneers. If approved for treatment, he will remove a small portion of tooth enamel from each tooth that will receive a veneer. This will ensure the restoration lays flat against your natural tooth when put into place.

Next, he will take impressions of your smile, which will be sent to a dental lab where technicians will use the specifications provided to fabricate your custom veneers. While waiting, you will wear temporary veneers, and you will need to follow specific instructions to avoid damaging your temporary teeth.

Once your finalized veneers are ready, you will return to have the temporaries removed. Dr. Heil will then carefully place each one onto the appropriate teeth, making sure they blend in nicely and lay flat. After a final polish, you will be free to leave and start enjoying your new smile.

The Benefits of Veneers

There are many reasons people continue to choose veneers to transform their smiles. While the rich and famous understood these benefits early on, they are now a safe and affordable option you can enjoy as well.

Some of the most common benefits associated with veneers include:

  • Improved appearance and boosted confidence (you won’t look “overdone” or appear to have a “fake smile”)
  • Greater durability against the pressures of daily wear and tear
  • A more conservative approach, allowing you to keep more of your natural tooth structure (as opposed to dental crowns)
  • Are versatile in covering a wide range of imperfections
  • They are more stain-resistant than traditional tooth enamel
  • They can last 10 years or more with regular maintenance
