Veneers Q & A

Evan Cohen DDS, PC

What are veneers?

Veneers are very thin porcelain covers that Dr. Cohen places directly over your teeth. Even though they’re delicate looking, veneers are exceptionally strong, highly durable, and look just like natural teeth.

When are veneers needed?

Veneers are a popular choice for men and women who have the following issues with one or more of their teeth:

  • Deep stains
  • Discoloration
  • Gaps
  • Cracks
  • Lack of uniformity
  • Crookedness
  • Worn teeth

For actors and actresses in the entertainment industry, veneers offer a dramatic smile makeover.  

What should I expect when veneers are applied?

Before Dr. Cohen puts your veneers in place, he prepares your teeth by filing them down slightly and roughening the surface, so the veneers adhere properly. This process is necessary to ensure your new veneers are spaced appropriately and allow sufficient space for flossing.

Between appointments, your new, custom-fitted veneers are created. While you wait, Dr. Cohen gives you a temporary cover to protect your newly prepared teeth.

When you return for your second appointment, he paints on a state-of-the-art bonding solution that holds your new veneers in place for many years to come. A special hand-held light hardens the veneers.

As the final step, Dr. Cohen buffs and polishes your new veneers before he sends you on your way with a radiant new smile.

How long do veneers last?

Veneers are considered a permanent cosmetic solution to problems with your natural teeth but require occasional replacement. They’re engineered to last more than 10 years.

Properly caring for your veneers keeps them in excellent condition and helps prolong the need for replacement. Things you can do to maintain the condition of your veneers include:

  • Daily brushing
  • Regular flossing
  • Avoid chewing on ice
  • Don’t bite down on hard candy
  • Wear a mouthguard to protect against grinding
  • Don’t use your teeth as tools
  • Maintain regular check-ups with Dr. Cohen
  • Have your teeth professionally cleaned every six months
