What are Dental Veneers and Laminates?

Dental veneers and laminates are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth, changing their color, shape, size, or length. Veneers and laminates can be made from porcelain or composite resin materials, and are permanently bonded to your teeth.

Benefits of Dental Veneers and Laminates

Dental veneers and laminates offer numerous benefits, including:

  • Correcting teeth imperfections; such as chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth
  • Closing gaps between teeth
  • Making teeth appear straighter and more even
  • Providing a natural-looking, long-lasting solution to cosmetic dental issues
  • Requiring minimal tooth preparation compared to other cosmetic treatments like crowns

The Dental Veneer and Laminate Process

The process of getting dental veneers or laminates typically involves three appointments:

  • Consultation and treatment planning
  • Preparation and fabrication of veneers or laminates
  • Bonding of veneers or laminates to your teeth

During the consultation, our doctors will discuss your goals and examine your teeth to determine if veneers or laminates are the best option for you. If you decide to proceed, they will prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel to accommodate the thickness of the veneer or laminate. Impressions of your teeth will be taken and sent to a dental laboratory where your custom veneers or laminates will be fabricated. In the final appointment, our doctors will bond the veneers or laminates to your teeth, ensuring a perfect fit and natural appearance.

Caring for Your Dental Veneers and Laminates

To ensure the longevity of your dental veneers and laminates, it's essential to maintain good oral hygiene habits and follow these care tips:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste
  • Floss daily to remove plaque and food particles between your teeth and along the gum line
  • Avoid biting or chewing on hard objects; such as ice, pens, or fingernails, which can damage your veneers or laminates

Regular dental check-ups and professional cleaning at Plaza Dental Group are also crucial for maintaining the health and appearance of your veneers and laminates.
