What are veneers?

Veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite resin bonded to the surfaces of your permanent teeth. Once placed, the veneers cover minor oral imperfections that don’t respond to other treatments.

You might need only one veneer if you break a tooth, but the team at Dentist at Rock Creek typically recommends getting at least six veneers to ensure optimal results.


What types of issues can veneers cover-up?

At Dentist at Rock Creek, the team uses veneers to cover minor oral imperfections, including:

  • Broken and chipped teeth
  • Severe discoloration or uneven coloring
  • Gaps between the teeth
  • Smaller-than-average teeth

Your dentist might also recommend veneers if you have pointy or unusually shaped teeth.


What are the types of veneers?

Dentist at Rock Creek offers several types of veneers, including:


Porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers are shells of porcelain. Your dentist removes a thin layer of enamel from your teeth –– about one millimeter –– before bonding porcelain veneers to your teeth. Afterward, they take impressions of your teeth and send them to a lab.

The lab creates a custom set of porcelain veneers. They are incredibly durable and mimic the color of your natural tooth enamel.


Composite veneers

Composite veneers are a less invasive treatment option. Instead of removing a thin layer of enamel from each tooth, your dentist simply applies a composite resin to their surfaces. The resin dries immediately, covering up imperfections, like stains or cracks.

After an oral exam and discussion of your goals, the team at Dentist at Rock Creek can determine the type of veneers that will most benefit you.


How long do veneers last?

Veneers typically last 12-15 years, but it’s possible to extend their use by practicing good oral hygiene. The team at Dentist at Rock Creek recommends brushing your teeth twice daily, flossing regularly, and wearing a mouthguard when working out or playing sports. 

Take precautions to protect them, including:

  • Not chewing on objects, like your fingernails or ice cubes
  • Avoid chewing with your front teeth
  • Never open packaging with your teeth
  • Wearing a night guard if you grind your teeth during sleep
