What Are Dental Veneers?

Veneers are one of the most sought-after cosmetic dental treatments, but what exactly are they? Essentially, they are custom-made shells of porcelain that are designed to adhere to the front-facing surfaces of your teeth. Since they are incredibly thin, they conceal discoloration, chips, minor misalignment, and more in a natural-looking way. Even better, they can address imperfections like these all with one treatment!

The Process of Getting Veneers

Naturally, the first step in the process of getting veneers is scheduling a consultation with our cosmetic dentist in Jacksonville, Dr. Schumacher. After he has confirmed you are a candidate and learned about your smile goals, he will carefully “prep” the tooth by removing a sliver of enamel. Once this is complete, impressions will be taken for the dental lab. While they are being crafted, temporary ones will be applied, which will give you a chance to “test drive” your new and improved smile. When the final set is ready (which usually takes about two weeks), they will be bonded to your teeth!
