Enhance Your Smile With Dr. Cooper
Veneers are thin shells that can be placed over the surface of your teeth to cover cosmetic flaws. They’re made from durable, tooth-colored porcelain to ensure a natural appearance and long-lasting results.
Dr. Cooper will customize your veneers so they blend in seamlessly with your smile, helping you look more youthful and attractive. We recommend veneers for treating the following issues:
- Chipped and cracked teeth
- Stained and discolored teeth
- Crooked or misshapen teeth
- Gaps between teeth
The Veneers Process
Getting veneers is a fast and easy process that’s typically completed in just two appointments. Traditionally, your dentist takes a detailed impression of your teeth during the first visit and sends it to a laboratory. After about two weeks, your veneers are ready for placement.
At Contemporary Dental Arts, Dr. Cooper uses CAD/CAM technology to design and place your veneers in a single appointment. This allows you to skip the typical two week waiting period and enjoy the benefits of a beautiful smile right away.
Candidacy for Porcelain Veneers
Any patient who wants to cover cosmetic flaws in their smile is a candidate for veneers. Generally speaking, there are no major health obstacles that prevent patients from qualifying for this treatment.
If you have a tendency to grind your teeth or bite your fingernails, we recommend breaking these habits. Otherwise, you risk damaging your veneers.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is the veneers procedure painful?
Dr. Cooper will administer a local anesthetic to numb your teeth and gums before placing your veneers, so you won’t feel any pain. You may feel some mild discomfort after the procedure, but this will fade within a few hours.
How long do veneers last?
With proper care, your veneers will last seven to fifteen years.
How many appointments does the procedure require?
Typically, veneers can be placed in two appointments roughly two weeks apart. But thanks to our CAD/CAM technology, we can customize and place your veneer in just one appointment.
Does dental insurance cover veneers?
Veneers are a cosmetic treatment, so they’re rarely covered by insurance. However, there are some exceptions depending on your provider.
What if my veneer falls off or is damaged?
If you damage a veneer, or if one falls out of your mouth, do your best to keep it clean and store it safely. Don’t attempt to fix or reattach the veneer on your own. Call us right away if you experience any problem with your veneers.
How do I take care of my veneers?
Veneers can be cared for just like natural teeth, with daily brushing and flossing. No special cleaning products or techniques are necessary.
Do veneers work for crooked teeth?
Yes — in many cases, we can use veneers to help your teeth appear straighter.
