What Are Veneers?

Veneers are hand-crafted, custom-made shells made from porcelain. They are ultra-thin and lightweight so that they can be placed on the front surface of your teeth and adjusted for an optimal fit. Once placed, veneers correct a wide range of dental flaws and cosmetic imperfections that keep your smile from reaching its full potential.

What Do Veneers Do For Your Teeth?

Porcelain veneers offer patients a host of cosmetic benefits, including:

  • Covering up chips or cracks in the enamel
  • Hiding stains and discolorations
  • Making the teeth look more even and aesthetically pleasing
  • Correcting the appearance of gapped or irregularly spaced teeth

How Are Veneers Put On Teeth?

The process of receiving porcelain dental veneers typically takes two appointments. During your first visit, your dentist will remove a thin layer of the enamel. This allows for the proper placement of your veneers for the best possible fit and appearance. Once this step is completed, we will take impressions of your teeth, which will then be sent to a dental laboratory and used to fabricate your veneers. You will receive temporary veneers to cover your reshaped teeth while you wait for your finished veneers to arrive.

When your veneers are ready, you will return for your second appointment. Your dentist will use dental cement to bond the veneers to your teeth and cure it with UV light. As soon as your veneers are bonded, you will leave our office with a beautiful new smile!

How Long Do Veneers Last?

Porcelain veneers typically last 10-15 years. Like any cosmetic procedure, your veneers will wear down in time and eventually need to be repaired or replaced. Be sure to maintain a regular checkup and cleaning schedule to keep your smile healthy and bright!

Do Veneers Hurt?

Your tooth will have to be prepared to receive the veneers, which involves a thin layer of enamel. This process is usually relatively painless. Before your dentist begins, we will administer a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area and prevent any discomfort you might feel.
