Cosmetic veneers are thin sheets of porcelain that your FLASH Dentspa provider bonds to the front of your permanent teeth. The veneers match the shade and color of your natural tooth enamel, ensuring they blend in with your smile.
Cosmetic veneers provide a long-lasting treatment option for minor oral imperfections. With routine checkups and good oral hygiene, they often last 10 years or more.*
FLASH Dentspa uses cosmetic veneers to address various aesthetic issues, including:
Your provider might also use a veneer as an alternative to a dental crown. Ultimately, treatment aims to help you achieve a more beautiful and symmetrical smile.
FLASH Dentspa offers several types of veneers, including:
Lumineers, or no-prep veneers, are veneers that your dentist applies during one appointment. They’re made of an ultra-thin laminate that dries immediately after application. Lumineers are bulkier than porcelain veneers and don’t last as long, but they’re more affordable.
Standard porcelain veneers require two separate visits.
During the first visit, your FLASH Dentspa provider removes a thin layer of enamel from each of your teeth. Then, they take impressions of your mouth and send them to a dental lab. Techs at the dental lab use your impressions to design a set of veneers that fit perfectly.
When the lab finishes your veneers, you return to FLASH Dentspa. Your dentist applies a dental adhesive, attaches the veneers to your teeth, and uses a special light to cement them in place. Then, they provide you with care instructions.
Taking care of cosmetic veneers requires you to practice good oral hygiene. FLASH Dentspa recommends brushing your teeth twice daily, visiting the office every six months for preventive cleanings, and wearing a mouthguard to protect your veneers if you play contact sports.
It’s also important to avoid bad habits, like nail biting, opening packaging with your teeth, or chewing on ice cubes.
