Veneers Q & A

What is a dental veneer?

Veneers are ultra-thin, custom-made porcelain shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth. They protect the surface of your teeth, help repair damage, and improve the aesthetics of your smile.

The simplicity and versatility of veneers make them one of the most popular ways to improve your smile and dental health. Successful placement and personalized matching demand a high degree of technical skill as well as keen attention to cosmetic detail. Dr. Bloom has more than 20 years of experience placing veneers and takes great pride in ensuring you receive the highest quality care.

How do veneers work?

It’s common to have chipped, cracked, stained, or uneven teeth over the course of your life. It may hurt your confidence, cause pain, or make chewing and biting difficult. Veneers offer a relatively simple solution to correct these problems — a solution that looks and feels natural, protects your teeth, and restores your smile.

First, Dr. Bloom removes a small amount of enamel from your tooth so that once he attaches the veneer, it forms a durable bond while looking and feeling natural. Then he makes an impression of the prepared tooth and determines the best color and shade to match your other teeth.

The impression can be made using the state-of-the-art CEREC® imaging system, which allows for same-day fabrication of your custom veneers. By comparison, the traditional process takes 2-3 weeks.

Once the custom veneer is finished to your personal specifications, Dr. Bloom places the veneer to ensure it fits well and looks beautiful. Next, he cleans your teeth and bonds the veneer to your tooth.

Do veneers look like my normal teeth?

Because Dr. Bloom uses the highest quality materials and his technical expertise, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are almost invisible. Your tooth looks healthy and strong, and your smile is restored.

How long do veneers last?

Veneers can brighten your smile for more than a decade. They’re even highly resistant to staining from coffee, tea, and tobacco, though proper care and regular hygiene are recommended to prolong their lifespan. In the event damage does occur, Dr. Bloom can usually just replace the veneer itself.

If a tooth is causing you discomfort or hurting your confidence, consult Dr. Bloom to see if veneers can help. Call or book your appointment online.
