Veneers Q & A

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are porcelain or laminate tooth-colored shells that are bonded to your teeth directly or with a bonding material. The team of dentists at Redmond Smiles custom design the veneers to fit over your existing teeth to improve:

  • Shape
  • Length
  • Width
  • Color

Your dentist at Redmond Smiles works with you to design more beautiful teeth that look natural and enhance your appearance. With proper care, dental veneers can last for many years before needing replacement.

Can anyone get veneers?

You must have healthy teeth and gums to benefit from veneers. If your teeth are damaged or if you have periodontal disease, your Redmond Smiles dentist resolves these issues before applying veneers.

You can use veneers to:

  • Hide discoloration from food stains, fluoride, fillings, and prescription medications
  • Cover gaps between teeth
  • Cover cracked, broken, misshapen, or misaligned teeth
  • Make a good smile spectacular

What are some advantages to having veneers?

Veneers are stain-resistant. Although you must maintain good oral health habits, such as brushing and flossing after meals and visiting the dentist biannually, you won’t stain your veneers if you drink coffee or wine.

The process of applying veneers is virtually pain-free. Most patients do not need anesthesia.

What are some disadvantages to having veneers?

Your Redmond Smiles dentist removes a thin layer of enamel from your teeth to facilitate bonding. Therefore, you must be sure that you want to keep veneers for life. Veneers usually need to be replaced after 10 to 15 years. You cannot return to your natural, bare teeth.

What happens when I get veneers?

You need three appointments at Redmond Smiles Family & Implant Dentistry for veneers:

  • A consultation to make sure veneers are right for you, take impressions of your teeth, and create a treatment plan
  • An appointment to have the custom-made veneers fitted, sculpted, and bonded
  • A follow-up visit to ensure the veneers fit well  

How do I take care of my veneers?

You care for your veneers just as if they were your natural teeth. Be sure to visit Redmond Smiles Family & Implant Dentistry twice a year for a check-up and professional cleaning.
