Veneers Q&A

What are veneers?

Veneers are small porcelain or ceramic overlays that are attached to the front of the teeth to correct minor imperfections and abnormalities. They’re extremely thin and will not change the feel of the teeth once Dr. Razzaq puts them in place. They’re designed to improve your smile and protect your teeth.

What problems can veneers correct?

Veneers are used to correct a wide variety of imperfections and abnormalities of the teeth including:

  • Gaps and spaces: Easily concealed by veneer overlays
  • Small or abnormally shaped teeth: Improving appearance of teeth of almost any shape or size
  • Damaged teeth: Protecting chipped or broken teeth on the front or back of the tooth
  • Discoloration: Due to smoking, alcohol, or use of certain medications

How many trips to the dentist will it take to get my veneers?

Most veneer treatments take 3 trips to the dentist.

Your first visit is your consultation and diagnosis to determine if you’re a good candidate for veneers. Dr. Razzaq will assess your teeth to see if veneers are the best solution for your dental issues.

Your second visit will involve preparing your teeth for your veneers by removing a half a millimeter of the enamel from the tooth surface so the veneer can bond properly. Dr. Razzaq will take an impression of your teeth so the lab can have a model from which they’ll create your veneers.

Your third visit will be 2-4 weeks later where Dr. Razzaq will do your final preparation and bond the veneers to your teeth. Once they’re bonded, she will clean off any excess cement, evaluate your bite and make any final adjustments necessary.

Are veneers permanent?

Veneers are designed to be permanent once they have been bonded to the teeth. If a veneer is broken or damaged, another one must be put in its place to protect the tooth from damage.
