Boost your confidence

If you don’t like how your smile looks, you may hide your teeth when you smile, speak, or even eat. But with a set of veneers from Dr. Wilson, you can feel confident in your appearance and smile proudly once again.

The Veneers Treatment Process

Tooth prep and fitting

To begin the treatment process, your Santa Rosa dentist will clean and numb your mouth. Then, he will trim away a thin layer of enamel from each tooth that’s getting a veneer. This must be done to ensure that your new veneers don’t change the way your teeth fit together. Once your teeth have been trimmed, he will take impressions of your teeth.

Building your veneers

Dr. Wilson will send you home with a set of temporary veneers to protect your teeth, and then he will send your impressions to our partner dental lab. Here, highly-skilled lab technicians will create your permanent veneers out of tooth-colored porcelain materials.

Final veneer placement

You’ll come back in a few weeks once your porcelain veneers arrive at our office. Then, Dr. Wilson will remove your temporaries and check the fit of your permanent veneers. If everything looks good, he will attach your veneers to your teeth using dental cement. Then, he will buff and polish your veneers and your teeth, and send you home to enjoy your new smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

Check out these frequently asked questions, or call us to speak with our team.

Can Veneers Be Repaired If They Are Damaged?

The ability to repair a veneer depends on the extent of the damage. Minor chips or cracks can sometimes be repaired without replacing the entire veneer. However, if the damage is significant, the entire veneer may need to be replaced. It's important to consult with your dentist if you notice any damage to your veneers. They can assess the severity and recommend the best course of action.

How Do I Care For My Veneers?

Caring for your veneers is similar to caring for your natural teeth. Good oral hygiene practices, such as brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and using an antiseptic mouthwash, are essential. Avoid using abrasive toothpaste, as it can wear down the polish on your veneers. It's also advisable to avoid habits that can damage veneers, such as biting nails, chewing ice, or using your teeth to open packages. Regular preventative dental care and cleanings are crucial for maintaining the health of your veneers and your natural teeth.

What Are Veneers Made Of?

There are two main types of materials used to create veneers: porcelain and composite resin. 

Porcelain veneers are the most popular choice due to their natural appearance and durability. Porcelain closely mimics the light-reflecting properties of natural teeth, making it an excellent choice for creating a natural, beautiful smile. Additionally, porcelain is stain-resistant, which means your veneers will maintain their bright, white color for many years.

Composite resin veneers, on the other hand, are made from a tooth-colored filling material. While they don't have the same light-reflecting properties as porcelain, composite resin veneers can still significantly improve the appearance of your smile. They are also less expensive than porcelain veneers and require less tooth preparation, making them a popular choice for many patients.

Choosing the right material for your veneers depends on your individual needs and goals. Your dentist can help guide you in making the best decision for your smile.

Can Veneers Be Whitened?

Veneers, unlike natural teeth, do not respond to traditional whitening treatments. This is because veneers are made from materials such as porcelain or composite resin, which are resistant to the bleaching agents used in whitening products. Therefore, if you have veneers and are considering whitening your teeth, it's important to discuss your options with your dentist.

If your veneers have become stained or discolored over time, your Santa Rosa dentist may be able to polish them to restore their original color. In some cases, if the staining is severe or the veneers have become worn or damaged, replacement may be the best option.

How Often Do Veneers Need To Be Replaced?

Veneers, especially those made from porcelain, are known for their durability and longevity. However, like any dental restoration, they are not designed to last forever. On average, you can expect your veneers to last anywhere from 10 to 15 years, although some patients may find that their veneers last up to 20 years or more. 

The lifespan of your veneers can be influenced by several factors. These include the quality of the original veneer placement, your oral hygiene habits, and your lifestyle. For instance, if you grind your teeth at night, smoke, or frequently consume staining foods and drinks, your veneers may not last as long. Regular check-ups with your dentist can help ensure that your veneers remain in top shape for as long as possible.

How Do You Care For Veneers?

Just brush and floss your teeth normally, and make sure you come to Sean Wilson DDS for preventative dental care like teeth cleaning and oral exams. As long as you take great care of your grin, your new veneers are sure to keep your smile looking brilliant for years to come.

Are Veneers Permanent?

Yes. Veneers are considered to be a permanent procedure because some of your natural enamel must be trimmed during the treatment process. This means you can’t have your veneers removed in the future. In order to keep your teeth healthy, you will need to keep your veneers for the rest of your life, and have them replaced if they wear out or are damaged.
