What to know
About Dental Veneers
Cosmetic dental veneers are used to enhance the appearance of your teeth when you’re smiling. As an aesthetic procedure, they’re purposely designed to bond over the front of your teeth, masking the healthy enamel behind them. Each thin shell of porcelain is expertly designed to create the size, shape, and color of tooth that you choose.
If you want a dramatically fast smile makeover, then Slidell dental veneers are likely the best solution. Investing in your smile can help you to feel more confident and look your best during everyday social encounters. In fact, studies have shown that having beautiful teeth can even help you get ahead during that next job interview!
Are Dental Veneers Right for You?
What type of aesthetic issues can be corrected with dental veneers? Here are just some of the cosmetic concerns that veneers can help to address:
Veneers can only be bonded to teeth that are healthy, as they’re for aesthetic purposes instead of restorative ones. We’ll need to screen your smile for signs of tooth decay or gum disease prior to initiating dental veneer treatment.

Dental Veneers Frequently Asked Questions:
Dental veneer treatment is usually phased out over 2-3 appointments, beginning with your consultation and preparation, then bonding the permanent new veneers usually about two weeks later.
This will depend on how wide your “smile zone” is. For some people, it’s only six upper front teeth. Others may need as many as 8-10 veneers or more.
Proper maintenance and protective nightguards can help your porcelain veneers last a decade or more before needing to be updated. There is also a difference in longevity between composite veneers and porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers last longer and are more durable.
Veneers are only recommended on fully developed teeth and this varies in age from patient to patient. If your teen wants a smile makeover, our cosmetic dentist also offers teeth whitening and bonding.
When you smile, the front of a crown and veneer look similar. But crowns cover your entire tooth, making them necessary in instances of damaged or decayed tooth structure. Our dental veneers in Slidell are only for enhancing healthy teeth.
