The Veneer Placement Process

At your first veneer appointment, Dr. Major will clean and numb your mouth. Then, he will remove a very thin layer of enamel from the teeth which will be receiving veneers. This is done so that the veneer can fit onto the tooth seamlessly.

Then, your Jackson cosmetic dentist will take images and dental impressions of your teeth, which will be sent to a dental lab where your veneers will be made. It will take about 2-3 weeks to create your veneers, so you’ll wear temporary veneers until your permanent prosthesis is sent to our office.

When your veneers have arrived at Jackson Family Dentistry, you’ll come back for your second appointment. Dr. Major will check each of the veneers to make sure they fit perfectly, and he’ll make any necessary minor adjustments. Then, your veneers will be bonded to your tooth permanently with dental cement. Finally, Dr. Major will buff and polish your teeth, and the procedure is complete.

veneers and Lumineers Frequently Asked Questions

What ARe Veneers?

Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped dental prostheses that are designed to cover up the fronts of your teeth. They are typically made out of a porcelain ceramic material that looks and feels just like a natural tooth. This versatile options can be used to cover up almost any cosmetic flaw in your smile, from staining to misshapen or chipped teeth. However, veneers are not a restorative treatment, and they cannot be used to treat teeth that are damaged or decayed.

What’s The Difference Between Lumineers And Veneers?

Lumineers and veneers are essentially the same aside from one significant detail. Lumineers are much thinner than traditional veneers (Lumineers are only about as thick as a contact lens). This means that, in most cases, Lumineers do not require the removal of any tooth enamel. This is why Lumineers are often called “no-prep” veneers. For this reason, Lumineers are a popular option for patients who do not like the idea of having enamel removed from their teeth.

Can Veneers Be Removed?

Traditional porcelain veneers are not removable. There is a simple reason for this. When your Jackson Doctor prepares your teeth for veneers, a layer of enamel that is about 0.5mm thick must be removed from each tooth that is getting a veneer.

This process is required to ensure that you can have your veneers placed without adding bulk to your teeth. It also exposes a better surface to which your veneers can be bonded, ensuring that they can be cemented permanently to the tooth.

0.5mm of enamel is a very small amount and after your veneers have been placed, your teeth will be just as strong as they were before they were trimmed. However, if your veneers were to be removed, your trimmed teeth would be much weaker than they were before your treatment.

This means that veneers cannot be removed and the procedure cannot be reversed. If any of your veneers ever fail in the future, you will have to replace them to ensure that your mouth remains healthy.

Can Lumineers Be Removed?

We also offer Lumineers at Jackson Family Dentistry. Lumineers, also known as “no-prep veneers” can sometimes be removed. Lumineers are only about 0.2mm thick, so they can often be placed onto your teeth without trimming away any of your natural enamel.

However, in some cases, it may still be necessary for your Jackson dentist to remove a thin layer of enamel before the Lumineer can be placed. This varies from patient to patient. 

If your Lumineers have been placed without requiring any trimming or preparation, they can be removed. However, there is usually no need to do so, unless there are serious issues with your initial treatment with Lumineers.

Can Veneers Be Stained or Whitened?

This depends on the material used to make the veneers. Porcelain veneers are made of a strong, thin, and durable ceramic material. Porcelain is completely non-porous, which means that there is no way for pigments and stains from eating and drinking to build up on the veneer. 

If you have porcelain veneers, they will remain bright and white without staining. It is still important to brush and floss properly, of course. Your natural teeth that are not covered with veneers can still become stained over time, which may reduce the appeal of your smile.

Resin veneers, on the other hand, are made of a composite dental material, similar to the material used for dental bonding and tooth-colored fillings. They are relatively durable and are cheaper than porcelain veneers. However, they are not as stain-resistant. If you don’t brush properly, stains could build up on your resin veneers over time.

In addition, neither porcelain veneers or resin veneers can be whitened with traditional teeth whitening products. Hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide, which are used to whiten enamel, have no effect on these materials. 

In some cases, stained resin veneers can be buffed and polished to remove a thin layer of resin and expose the whiter material underneath, restoring your smile. However, this is not usually necessary as long as you are caring for your teeth properly.

How long do veneers last?

When it comes to enhancing your smile, veneers offer an impressive longevity. On average, veneers can last anywhere from 7 to 15 years, and sometimes even longer with proper care and maintenance. This longevity is due to the high-quality materials used in their construction, usually porcelain, which is known for its durability and resistance to staining. However, their lifespan also greatly depends on your oral hygiene habits, diet, and how well you protect your teeth. Regular check-ups with your dentist, like Dr. Ben Heffter or Dr. Pako Major at Jackson Family Dentistry, can ensure that your veneers remain in top shape for as long as possible.

Are veneers painful?

The process of getting veneers is typically pain-free. Before the procedure begins, a local anesthetic is applied to numb the area, ensuring your comfort throughout. The procedure itself involves minimal shaping of the natural tooth to accommodate the veneer, which is generally not painful. Some patients may experience slight sensitivity or discomfort after the procedure, but this is usually temporary and subsides within a few days. At Jackson Family Dentistry, we prioritize your comfort and aim to make the process as painless as possible.

Can you get cavities with veneers?

While veneers cover the front surface of your teeth and provide some protection, they do not make your teeth invincible to cavities. The uncovered parts of your teeth are still susceptible to decay, especially if you neglect your oral hygiene. It's crucial to maintain a consistent brushing and flossing routine, even with veneers. Regular dental check-ups are also essential to catch any potential issues early. Remember, veneers are an investment in your smile, and taking care of your oral health is the best way to protect this investment.

Which is more expensive, veneers or lumineers?

The cost of veneers and lumineers can vary based on several factors, including the complexity of your case, the number of teeth being treated, and the specific materials used. Generally speaking, traditional veneers tend to be more expensive than lumineers. This is because veneers are often custom-made from high-quality porcelain and require a more involved preparation process. On the other hand, lumineers are thinner, require less preparation of the natural tooth, and are usually less expensive as a result. However, it's important to discuss with your dentist at Jackson Family Dentistry to understand which option is best for your specific needs and budget.

Do veneers and Lumineers require special care?

No special care is needed for veneers and Lumineers beyond good oral hygiene practices, such as brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and regular dental check-ups. It's also advisable to avoid biting on hard objects or using your teeth as tools. If you grind your teeth at night, your dentist may recommend wearing a night guard to protect your veneers or Lumineers from excessive wear. Additionally, it's important to attend regular dental appointments so your dentist can monitor the condition of your veneers or Lumineers and address any issues that may arise.
