Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells that Dr. Shenasi permanently seals to the front side of your visible teeth. 

They’re designed from an impression of your smile and are made using materials that look just like tooth enamel, so your veneers look just like natural teeth once they’re bonded in place. 

How can veneers improve my smile?

Veneers mask cosmetic defects in your teeth and enable Dr. Shenasi to redesign the appearance of your smile. With veneers, Dr. Shenasi can correct a wide range of aesthetic concerns, like:

  • Teeth that are cracked, chipped, worn down, or fractured
  • Teeth that are too small
  • Widely spaced teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Staining that hasn’t responded to a professional whitening treatment

Dr. Shenasi can also use veneers to make your smile more symmetrical.

What are the benefits of veneers?

The biggest benefit of veneers is how simple, easy, and minimally invasive the procedure is. Unlike other restorative options, veneers only require Dr. Shenasi to remove a very thin layer of enamel from the front side of your teeth.

Veneers are also very well-tolerated by gum tissue and are stain-resistant.

What happens when I get veneers?

Your veneers procedure starts with a cosmetic consultation with your dentist. You and your dentist discuss your cosmetic goals and what you hope to get out of your veneers. 

It sometimes helps to bring in pictures of smiles that you admire to give them a better idea of how you’d like your smile to look.

Next, you and your dentist select a size, shape, and color for your veneers that compliment your facial features. Your dentist shaves a very thin layer of enamel from the front side of your teeth. 

They then take an impression of your smile to send to a dental lab (where your permanent veneers are designed and fabricated) and fit you with a set of temporary veneers to wear in the meantime.

When your permanent veneers are ready (which typically takes a couple of weeks) you come back to Dental Town DC, where your dentist permanently bonds them to your teeth, giving you a beautiful new smile that you can share with the world.
