Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are restorative devices that your dentist bonds to the front surfaces of your teeth. They cover up stains, breakage, and other cosmetic defects you’d rather people not see when you smile. 

You may get veneers for teeth in the front of your mouth that aren’t molars. If you have similar cosmetic damage on a molar you’d like to treat, you’re probably better off getting a crown. 

The team at Laguna Beach Dental Excellence creates your custom veneers using high-end porcelain, which mimics the slight natural opacity of your teeth. Your veneers are also shaped and color-matched to fit in among your other teeth. 

The process of getting veneers is simple and involves removing a minor amount of enamel from the surfaces of the teeth being treated. Dr. Fazeli then bonds the veneers to the teeth using a strong dental cement before making some final adjustments with shaping and polishing. 

Am I a good candidate for veneers?

There are countless reasons why dental veneers might catch your interest. During a consultation at Laguna Beach Dental Excellence, the team examines your teeth and gums to ensure they don’t need to treat any oral diseases before you start the process of getting veneers. 

You might be a candidate for veneers if you’re interested in hiding:

  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Discoloration
  • Stains
  • Worn-down teeth
  • Large gaps
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Particularly small or short teeth

Some tooth discoloration can be treated with LED teeth whitening procedures at Laguna Beach Dental Excellence. However, stains from root canal treatments, excessive fluoride, and other causes may not respond well to whitening, making veneers the preferable option. 

How can I make my veneers last?

Making veneers last as long as possible requires that you heed Dr. Fazeli’s aftercare instructions. You should also care for your veneers by avoiding foods and actions that could break them or cause them to fall off. 

Veneers typically last 7-15 years as long as you:

  • Brush your teeth twice daily using the proper technique
  • Floss every day
  • Visit Laguna Beach Dental Excellence for regular cleanings
  • Avoid using your teeth as tools (to open packages, twist-off tops, etc.)
  • Avoid biting down on solid candies and objects

If your veneers wear down over the course of years or decades, visit Laguna Beach Dental Excellence to discuss getting replacements with the team.
