About Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are very thin shells that cover the visible part of your teeth. Veneers are a popular choice because they improve the appearance of your teeth—quickly, easily and effectively. Patients love how soon they can have a dramatic transformation in their smile and in their confidence. The entire process takes 2-4 weeks, depending on the number of veneers you request. Because dental veneers are so versatile, they are a popular cosmetic dental solution, correcting various problems simultaneously, including:

  • Misalignment of teeth
  • Discoloration and deep staining
  • Chipped and weak teeth
  • Gaps and spaces
  • Minor crowding

Dental veneers are thin, strong layers of material, custom-made to fit over teeth and improve their color, shape and overall appearance. There are only two types of dental veneers: porcelain and composite.

Porcelain Veneers 

High quality porcelain bonds to teeth well, is durable, and provides superior aesthetics.

a. Traditional full thickness veneers
b. Minimal prep veneers
c. No prep veneers

Composite Veneers also know as composite bonding

At Optima Dental we take composite veneers a step further, and in addition to high quality porcelain, we utilize Emax and Empress porcelain in our veneers. These are two of the top-rated materials available in cosmetic dentistry today.

a. Less expensive than porcelain
b. Great aesthetics
c. Limited longevity and uses

The Process of Dental Veneers

1. First appointment = consultation
2. Second appointment = preparation of teeth
3. Third appointment = placement of veneers

The most important factor in cosmetic dentistry is meeting your expectations. We want to make sure you understand the procedure, know what results to expect, and make sure you are comfortable throughout the process.

At Optima Dental, we have created a time-tested process of quantifying and understanding the expectations you have about your dental veneers, and delivering beautiful aesthetics with highly predictable results.


Patient Examples

Below are several case studies of cosmetic dental patients who were seeking dental veneers to solve a variety of issues. These patients expressed different desires and expectations in how they wanted their teeth to look and perform, as well as considering financial investments.

We hope these cases will give you a better understanding of how veneers can help you achieve everything you are hoping for in your smile.

Veneers Patient “A”

Patient’s problems & concerns

Prior to her wedding, Patient A was concerned about her smile. Her main priority was to correct her chipped and thinning teeth, in addition to correcting minor issues in the spacing of her teeth.

Patient’s expectations

This patient’s goal was to correct the above dental issues with veneers, and also produce a naturally beautiful smile that was in harmony with the rest of her teeth and lip position.

Outcome

The bride-to-be was all smiles, and the results exceeded her expectations. She received an all natural and beautiful looking set of veneers with great alignment and healthy tissue adaptation.

Type of veneers used

We utilized “minimal prep” veneers, also know as ultra-thin veneers, for their brilliance, strength, and durability.

Veneers Patient “B”

Patient’s problems & concerns

Patient B was concerned with several problems with her smile, including crowding, deep staining, chipped teeth, existing fillings, rough tooth texture, misalignment and differences in heights.

Patient’s expectations

This patient’s goal was to correct the above problems with veneers, in addition to getting a slightly lighter and natural shade of teeth.

Outcome

Natural and beautiful-looking veneers corrected the above problems and exceeded our patient’s expectations.

Type of veneers used

We utilized “minimal prep” veneers, also know as ultra-thin veneers, for their brilliance, strength, and durability.

Veneers Patient “C”

Patient’s problems & concerns

Patient C expressed that she had hated the deep staining in her teeth since a young age. She struggled with this for years and desperately wanted lighter teeth. This was her primary concern, along with gum recession and chipping of the teeth.

Patient’s expectations

This patient’s goal was to obtain dental veneers that would mask the internal staining, and give her the whitest teeth possible.

Outcome

We utilized the lightest dental veneer shade available to give our patient the white, bright smile she had desired for so long.

Type of veneers used

We utilized porcelain veneers with full thickness for a natural appearance and superior aesthetics.

Veneers Patient “D”

Patient’s problems & concerns

The primary concern of Patient D was to replace unnatural, bulky and defective composite veneers. Unlike porcelain veneers, composite veneers “leak” over time (in this case, after a few years) giving the smile a stained appearance.

Patient’s expectations

This patient’s goal was to have dental veneers that were natural-looking and in harmony with the shade and shape of his real teeth.

Outcome

The beautiful and natural-looking transformation exceeded our patient’s expectations. His teeth were also brought inward for more natural contours.

Type of veneers used

We utilized porcelain veneers with full thickness for a natural appearance and superior aesthetics.

Veneers Patient “E”

Patient’s problems & concerns

The primary concerns of Patient E included an unnaturally gummy smile and short teeth with severe wear.

Patient’s expectations

This patient’s goal was to obtain a beautiful and very bright smile with a natural length of teeth. The patient expressed the desire for the brightest teeth possible.

Outcome

This beautiful natural transformation exceeded our patient’s expectations of very bright teeth with normal proportions.

Type of veneers used

We utilized porcelain veneers with full thickness for a natural appearance and superior aesthetics.

Additional procedures

To vastly improve her appearance, we added length to her teeth by reducing the amount of gum.

Veneers Patient “F”

Patient’s problems & concerns

The primary concerns for Patient F included limited finances, existing decay between his front teeth, as well as crowding, and misalignment.

Patient’s expectations

This patient’s goal was to correct considerable misalignment and crowding, and to treat the decay with a less costly alternative to porcelain veneers. Our strategy would produce a more acceptable aesthetic result until the patient would be financially situated for porcelain veneers (in a few years).

Outcome

We exceeded our patient’s expectations with a much less costly alternative to porcelain veneers, vastly improving his smile while giving him a long-term strategy for continued improvements.

Type of veneers used

We utilized composite dental veneers, also known as composite bonding, for quick, convenient results that provide highly aesthetic and seamless results.
