Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin, customized shells developed to cover an existing tooth. Made of porcelain or resin composite material, these aesthetic dental coverings are used to conceal teeth that are worn down, uneven, discolored, chipped or cracked. When you receive veneers at the office of Dr. Monica Muñoz, DDS, your dentist and her professional lab technician will produce your veneers using a model of the natural shape and look of your teeth.

Veneers are effective at improving the appearance of dark or excessively stained teeth that may be resistant to whitening. Plus, this dental technique is customized to fulfill your specific needs, with each shell specially designed to fit the natural size and shape of your teeth.

Am I a good candidate for veneers?

To determine if veneers are right for you, your dentist will conduct an examination of your teeth and the surrounding structures. In order to get veneers, you will need a certain amount of existing tooth structure. Therefore, this option is not appropriate for people with missing teeth.

Veneers may be right for you if:

  • You have discolored teeth due to staining from medications or other dental treatments
  • You have teeth that are worn down, chipped, or broken
  • You have gaps in between your teeth
  • You have teeth that are irregularly shaped, uneven, or in poor alignment

Schedule an appointment with Dr. Muñoz to discuss your expectations for dental veneers.

How can I care for my veneers?

Veneers are a long-lasting option to cover and restore the appearance of teeth that suffer from damage or staining. You can extend the life of your veneers and keep them looking great by avoiding foods and beverages that stain your teeth, such as coffee, red wine, or tea. Talk to your Monrovia, California dentist for specific instructions on how to properly care for your veneers to enjoy a more beautiful smile.
