Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped coverings that Dr. Tourtlotte and the dental team bond to the front surfaces of your visible teeth. They cover up any cosmetic concerns to give you a smile that’s full, even, and flawless. Made from porcelain or composite resin, they have a color and translucency that’s just like tooth enamel, so your smile will still look very natural.

People love veneers because they’re easy to install, don’t require any sort of invasive procedures, and can give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of. River Oak Dental Spa also offers Lumineers, which are an even thinner version of veneers that look great and require the removal of less tooth enamel.

In what ways can veneers improve my smile?

Veneers cover up the entire visible area of your teeth, enabling Dr. Tourtlotte and the team to totally redesign your smile. With veneers, you can improve the appearance of teeth that are:

  • Chipped, cracked, or fractured
  • Worn down
  • Crooked
  • Misshapen
  • Stained or severely discolored
  • Too large or too small
  • Widely spaced
  • Crowded

And because you can select the size, shape, and color of your veneers, you can make sure that your new smile perfectly complements the rest of your appearance.

What’s involved with getting veneers?

You can improve your smile with veneers in as little as two visits to River Oak Dental Spa. During your first visit, Dr. Tourtlotte and the team buff the surface of your teeth to make room for the thickness of the veneer. Because veneers are so thin, they only remove a minimal amount of enamel.

Then, they take an impression of your teeth, which they send to a state-of-the-art lab that uses it to design and fabricate your veneers. You wear a set of temporary veneers in the meantime and return for a second visit once your permanent set is ready.

At your second appointment, Dr. Tourtlotte and the team check that your veneers fit your teeth perfectly and look excellent. If everything is up to your standards, they use a special dental cement and curing light to bond them to your teeth, and you leave the office with a stunning new smile.
