What Are Veneers and Laminates?

Did you know that dental veneers and dental laminates are very similar? Both consist of incredibly thin porcelain or resin shells that are customized to the shape and color that achieves the results you are looking for. Before applying the veneers or laminates, your cosmetic dentist will administer a local anesthetic and buff your natural teeth, removing approximately half a millimeter from their surface. This prepares your teeth to be bonded to the veneers or laminates.

Benefits of porcelain veneers:

  • Stain Resistant
  • Durable
  • Quick Placement
  • Improved Self Confidence

Before the veneers are bonded to your teeth, your dentist will take a mold of your mouth and send it to the dental lab where your laminates will be created. Once completed by the dental lab, you will return to the dentist to have your laminates or veneers applied and bonded to your teeth. At this appointment, your dentist will bond the veneers to the surface of your teeth, ensuring they have a perfect fit and achieve the natural look you desire.

Veneers and laminates can be used to solve a variety of cosmetic irregularities, including teeth that are:

  • Chipped
  • Broken
  • Spaced apart
  • Irregularly shaped
  • Misaligned
  • Decayed
  • Discolored

You’ve probably heard of several celebrities and well-known public figures who have opted for this treatment. As a relatively conservative cosmetic procedure, veneers and laminates continue to be one of the most popular procedures performed by cosmetic dentists today.

How Do I Take Care of My Veneers or Laminates?

Part of why veneers and laminates are so popular is that care and maintenance are incredibly simple. You care for them in the same way you care for your natural teeth! You may continue your normal brushing and flossing routine immediately. You may experience some sensitivity between your two appointments as a result of the prepping that has been done prior to having your veneers bonded, but otherwise, the recovery from this procedure for most patients is relatively quick and painless.
