Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are ultra-thin pieces of porcelain or zirconia shaped to look just like the front side of your teeth. They’re permanently bonded to your teeth, where they cover up any cosmetic imperfections and give your smile a full makeover.

Your veneers are custom-designed for your particular smile, and because porcelain has a similar color and translucency as your natural tooth enamel, your veneers will make your newly upgraded smile look both beautiful and natural.

Dr. Henne also offers Lumineers® for her patients at Cherry Family Dental. Lumineers are similar in function to veneers, but they’re even thinner, making their application an even less invasive process than regular veneers already are.

How do veneers enhance my smile?

Veneers mask the entire front portion of the tooth that they’re bonded to, which enables them to cover up any imperfections in your teeth, in addition to reshaping and resizing your teeth. With veneers, Dr. Henne can improve:

  • Cracks and chips in your teeth
  • Staining that hasn’t responded to professional whitening treatments
  • Teeth that are too small, misshapen, or have large gaps between them
  • Teeth that are worn down

Veneers are like a facelift for your smile and can give you an entirely new and beautiful look.

Am I a candidate for veneers?

In order to get veneers, you need to have healthy teeth and gums. If you have any dental conditions, like tooth decay or signs of gum disease, Dr. Henne will need to treat them before you can begin the process of getting veneers.

What’s involved in getting veneers?

First, you share your cosmetic goals with Dr. Henne, who helps you pick out the size, shape, and color for your veneers. In constructing your dream smile, Dr. Henne advises you in selecting veneers that not only enhance your teeth but also complement your other natural features, like the size and shape of your gums and lips and the color of your skin and hair.

Dr. Henne then buffs off a very thin layer of enamel from the surface of your teeth and takes a 3D scan of your mouth with an iTero® scanner. She sends that scan to a lab that designs your veneers so that they fit comfortably on top of your teeth. You wear a set of temporary veneers until your permanent ones are back from the lab, at which point Dr. Henne permanently bonds them to your teeth.
