Veneers Q & A

What are dental veneers?

Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells that cover your front teeth. They are custom-made to fit each tooth. Dr. Lin uses porcelain veneers that match the look and feel of natural teeth. Although veneers can be made out of resin composite materials, porcelain is the most stain-resistant material.

Veneers are useful for covering the appearance of several common aesthetic problems, including:

  • Worn enamel
  • Uneven alignment
  • Irregular spacing
  • Discoloration or staining
  • Damaged surfaces
  • Decay

Dr. Lin assesses your teeth and overall oral health carefully before deciding on the most suitable course of action, and he discusses your options with you during your consultation at his Livermore office.

What are the advantages of veneers?

Porcelain veneers from Dr. Lin maintain the natural appearance of your teeth. They also offer the following advantages to other cosmetic dentistry options:

  • Resistance to stains
  • Well-tolerated by your gums
  • Ability to lighten darker teeth so they appear whiter
  • Look great with no invasive dental work
  • Strengthen teeth

Veneers can be a less expensive way to improve crooked, broken, or misshapen teeth than some other dental procedures. Dr. Lin is passionate about providing the most effective treatments for his patients and makes a point of keeping up-to-date with the latest research and technologies.

How do I care for my veneers?

How long your veneers last in large part depends on how you care for them, so it’s very important that you continue to care for your teeth by brushing and flossing. Coffee, tea, and red wine may stain your veneers. Furthermore, you should try not to bite down hard because though it’s unlikely, veneers can crack or chip.

Also, because enamel is removed when you put on veneers, if your veneers get damaged, you’ll need to replace them with new ones.

Veneers are an ideal cosmetic solution for improving the appearance of defects on your front teeth. If you’re concerned about how your teeth look and want the smile you’ve always dreamed of, book an appointment online or over the phone with award-winning dentist Brent C Lin, DDS at his Livermore office today.
