Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers involve using a thin layer of porcelain to re-create the appearance of your natural teeth. Dr. Oh custom-fits each veneer to the individual teeth in your mouth before bonding it to them.

Veneers can restore frail teeth and cover up imperfections, such as stains, gaps, cracks, or misshapen teeth.

Veneers can be derived from porcelain or composite resin. Out of the two materials, porcelain is the most stain-resistant material, and it also tends to be a better match to your natural enamel.

How do I get veneers?

You start with a consultation to discuss your goals and decide the best type of veneers for your needs. You return for another appointment where Dr. Oh prepares your teeth for the veneers.

Dr. Oh shapes your existing teeth by removing a tiny amount of enamel from the surface. Once your teeth are prepared, Dr. Oh takes a mold of your teeth and sends them to a lab that creates your individualized veneers.

When your veneers come back from the lab, you return to the office where Dr. Oh custom fits your veneers to each of your teeth. Dr. Oh cleans and etches the surface of your teeth to prepare them for the bonding process before applying a special cement and light source that makes the adhesive bond securely to the porcelain.

What are the benefits of veneers?

Veneers are an impressive and natural-looking way to correct cracked, crooked, or misshapen teeth.
