What Are Veneers?

Veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment that can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile. These thin, custom-made shells are crafted from porcelain or composite resin and are designed to cover the front surface of your teeth. Veneers are used to correct a variety of dental issues, including discolored, worn down, chipped, broken, misaligned, uneven, irregularly shaped teeth, or gaps between teeth. The process involves removing a small amount of tooth enamel to make room for the veneer, which is then bonded to the front of the tooth, enhancing its shape, color, and overall appearance.

The Veneers Treatment Process

Consultation and Treatment Planning

The first step towards getting veneers involves a consultation with Dr. Sarno at Foothill Modern Dental. During this appointment, your oral health will be evaluated, and you will discuss your smile goals and expectations. This is your opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the process. Dr. Sarno will explain the procedure in detail and may take X-rays or make impressions of your mouth and teeth.

Preparing the Teeth

Before veneers can be placed, the teeth must be prepared. This involves removing about 0.5 millimeters of enamel from the tooth surface, which is roughly equal to the thickness of the veneer to be added. After the enamel is removed, Dr. Sarno will make a model or impression of your tooth. This model is sent to a dental laboratory, where your veneer will be custom-made to fit your tooth and improve your smile.

The Benefits Of Veneers

Improved Smile Aesthetics

Veneers are made of durable porcelain ceramic materials. Porcelain is non-porous, so it cannot become stained, unlike natural teeth. Veneers also hold up well to the forces of biting and chewing, and are very resistant to breakage and wear.


Porcelain veneers are highly durable. With proper care, they can last between 10 to 15 years, making them a long-term solution for enhancing your smile.

Minimal Enamel Removal

Compared to other cosmetic dentistry treatments, veneers require minimal tooth enamel removal. This makes veneers a less invasive treatment option for improving the appearance of your teeth.
