Veneers Before and After: Are they worth it?

Veneers Before and After: Are they worth it?

We aren’t all born with perfectly straight, nicely-shaped teeth, which is why so many people choose to get veneers.

Veneers are essentially a more attractive, protective cover for your existing teeth and can help improve your smile and give your confidence a boost without surgery. They’re easily accessible and you can have your own veneers installed right at Smile Center.

Scroll down to learn more about how veneers are made and attached to your existing teeth so you can decide if this is the right choice for you.

What are veneers?

Veneers are wafer-thin caps that cover your existing teeth. They help improve discoloration, close any unsightly gaps in your teeth, and help your smile appear straighter.

Veneers don’t solve any major dental problems - they only help your teeth look better. If you have serious decay in your teeth, you need to get that treated first before you ask your dentist for veneers. However, if you have stubborn stains on otherwise healthy teeth, then veneers are a good option for you.

What are veneers made of?

You can get composite resin or porcelain veneers for your teeth. Each comes with its own benefits:

Composite Resin

  • More affordable and can be placed on your teeth in just one visit
  • Easy to fix if they get damaged
  • Require less enamel to be removed before they are placed on the tooth
  • Last up to eight years


  • Stronger and last longer
  • Appear more like natural teeth
  • Stain resistant
  • Minimal enamel removal when compared to a crown or a cap
  • Last as long as 15 years

Both options require a skilled dentist as your veneers need to be shaped to your teeth exactly.

What happens when I make an appointment for veneers?

Before your dentist can make veneers for you, he or she needs to examine your teeth and make sure you don’t have any other dental problems that could be hidden from view with a new cover on your tooth. You need to have healthy, strong teeth and not grind them at night in order for your veneers to last and be worth the money.

Once your dentist approves you for the procedure, you’ll go in for follow-up visits to have your teeth scanned so that your dentist can make the veneers to fit your teeth exactly. Then, your teeth will be gently reshaped so that the cap can fit on your teeth as naturally as possible.
