Are you getting ready to pack up and head to the coast this summer for some relaxing time by the ocean? If so, you should bring your swimsuit, your sunscreen, your towels, and, of course, a smile that will look fabulous in photos. But what if your teeth have a few imperfections that make you feel self-conscious? Talk to your cosmetic dentist. They might recommend that you get veneers, which can be the key to achieving a beach-ready smile.

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are thin, custom-made pieces of porcelain that get permanently attached to the outward-facing surface of teeth. Their job is to disguise flaws and imperfections, such as chips, cracks, stains, small gaps between the teeth, and more. They look incredibly natural and can be used to cover just one tooth, a few teeth, or all of the teeth that are visible when you smile.

What Is Involved in Getting Veneers?

The veneers process starts with a consultation. Your dentist will evaluate your oral health and learn about your goals for treatment. If you are a good candidate for the procedure, your dental team will get to work on designing your custom veneers. Every detail about them, including their size, shape, and color, will be tailored to complement your unique facial features.

To prepare your teeth for veneers, your dentist will need to remove a sliver of enamel from your teeth. Do not worry — you will wear temporary veneers to protect your teeth after they are prepared. After a laboratory fabricates your permanent ones, they will be secured onto your teeth, and you will be ready for many years of gorgeous vacation photos.

How Long Does It Take to Get Veneers?

The timeline for getting veneers depends on your dentist’s schedule, how quickly the dental lab can work, and whether you require any preliminary treatments (such as teeth whitening) before you can move ahead with veneers.

Typically, the entire process takes at least a few weeks from beginning to end. Therefore, you should plan accordingly if you want your new look to be ready in time for your beach vacation.

Of course, if you run out of time before your vacation, there is no need to be too sad. Veneers usually last for 10 – 15 years or longer, so you will have ample opportunities in the future to let your new smile shine.

Veneers can make you feel like a star during your next vacation! Talk to your cosmetic dentist to learn more about them.
