Veneers work by replacing the front surfaces of your teeth. They are made out of special ceramic materials that look and feel just like real enamel. Veneers are thin, hollow, and fit over your natural teeth to cover them up. With a set of veneers from Springbrook Family Dentistry, you can correct almost any cosmetic problem with your smile.

Veneers are not considered to be reversible, since a thin layer of enamel must be removed from each tooth that’s getting a veneer.
To begin the process, you’ll come into Springbrook Family Dentistry for a cosmetic consultation with Dr. Finney. She will examine your mouth, discuss your smile goals with you, and help you decide on the cosmetic treatments that are right for your unique needs.
Once you’re approved for veneers, you’ll come in for a follow-up at our office. Dr. Finney will clean and numb your mouth. Then, she will use a dental drill to remove some enamel from each tooth that’s getting a veneer. This ensures that no bulk is added to your teeth by your veneers. Then, she will take impressions and images of your newly-trimmed teeth.
Dr. Finney will attach a set of temporary veneers to your teeth, then send your information to a dental lab. This is where your permanent veneers will be built out of durable, tooth-like porcelain materials. It usually takes 2-3 weeks to build your veneers.
Once your veneers arrive at Springbrook Family Dentistry, you’ll come in for a final appointment. Dr. Finney will remove your temporaries, clean your teeth, then check the fit of your permanent veneers. If everything looks good, she’ll attach your veneers with dental cement. She’ll polish your teeth one more time, then send you home to enjoy your new grin.
Veneers can be treated just like natural teeth. They don’t require any special care, so they're one of the most convenient cosmetic treatments. Veneers are also very durable and are completely immune to stains, so your new smile is sure to last.
Veneers can treat misshapen, and chipped teeth. They're also used to treat severe tooth stains, and even gapped, uneven, and crooked teeth, in some cases. No matter what cosmetic dental issues you may be facing, dental veneers can help.
With a set of veneers, you can truly transform your smile. You’ll feel more confident about your appearance and you’ll look younger. You’ll be able to speak, laugh, eat, and smile without feeling self-conscious.
Most people with cosmetic dental problems are good candidates for veneers. To qualify, you must have a healthy mouth, and you must not have any serious orthodontic issues. To see if you’re a good candidate for veneers, contact Springbrook Family Dentistry for a consultation with our dentist in Elma.
Veneers will usually last 10-15 years, but can easily last 20 years or longer with proper care. To care for your veneers, make sure you brush twice a day and floss once a day and eat a tooth-healthy diet. You should also come to Springbrook Family Dentistry every six months for a checkup and teeth cleaning from Dr. Finney and our team.
