Veneers Q & A

What are the benefits of veneers?

Dental veneers are small, thin porcelain tooth covers that enhance the appearance of your natural teeth. Veneers are beneficial because they can:

  • Resolve small gaps
  • Perfect misshapen teeth
  • Cover cracks or fractures
  • Hide yellow or discolored teeth

Your custom set of veneers can even correct small misalignment or crooked teeth issues, so your smile appears straighter.

How long is the process of getting veneers?

From beginning to end, you can have veneers in just a few weeks. When you come into the office of Hyun S. Bang, DDS, for your dental veneers consultation, your dentist examines your teeth and takes any necessary digital X-rays.

They can let you know right away if veneers are right for you and design your smile makeover plan.

During your next appointment, your dentist carefully removes a very thin layer of enamel from each of your targeted teeth and takes impressions.

Your dentist uses these impressions to create temporary veneers to apply the same day. These impressions are also sent to the dental lab, where your custom veneers are designed.

Within about 2-3 weeks, your full set of veneers arrive back in the office. You come in for another visit to have your temporary veneers removed and your permanent veneers bonded in place.

The team at Hyun S. Bang, DDS, may recommend one additional follow-up visit the following week, just to ensure your veneers are fitting properly and to make any essential adjustments.

Are veneers permanent?

Veneers themselves aren’t permanent, but the process of getting veneers is permanent. Because the process involves removing some of your tooth’s enamel — it can’t grow back — once you commit to veneers, it’s a lifelong decision.

The expert dentists at the office of Hyun S. Bang, DDS, are dedicated to helping you have lasting results with your new veneers.

They teach you about lifestyle changes you can make, which foods to avoid, and proper oral hygiene care at home, so your veneers can last up to 10-20 years.
