Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are ultra-thin porcelain shells. They’re shaped to look just like the front side of your teeth, where they’re permanently sealed to cover up cosmetic defects in your smile.

Because porcelain has the same color and light-reflecting properties as natural tooth enamel, your veneers look like enhanced versions of your natural teeth. 

Veneers are a popular cosmetic procedure because they can revitalize your smile with a treatment that’s quick, easy, and minimally invasive.

In what ways can veneers improve my smile?

Veneers cover up the entire visible portion of your teeth, so they effectively mask any cosmetic defects you have in your smile. Dr. Beck and the Alta Canyada Dental Group team can use veneers to treat any of the following cosmetic concerns.

  • Cracks, chips, and fractures
  • Stains that haven’t responded to professional teeth whitening
  • Teeth that are too small
  • Widely spaced teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Teeth that are excessively worn down

The porcelain used to make veneers is typically stain-resistant, so veneers do more than improve the look of your smile–they also keep it looking good for years to come.

What are the steps to getting veneers?

When you get veneers, you begin the process by having a consultation with Dr. Beck at Alta Canyada Dental Group. You select a size, shape, and color for your veneers that will enhance your teeth and help you get your dream smile but will also look appropriate in your mouth and complement the rest of your facial features. 

Once you pick your veneers, a thin layer of enamel is shaved from the front side of your teeth. The amount of enamel he removes is equivalent to the size of the veneers.

After he prepares your teeth, Dr. Beck takes an impression of your smile. He sends that impression to a lab that custom-builds your veneers so that they fit perfectly on your teeth. You wear temporary veneers while you wait for the lab to finish building your permanent ones.

When your permanent veneers are ready, you come back to Alta Canyada Dental Group, where Dr. Beck uses a sealant to bond them to your teeth permanently.
