If your teeth suffer from gaps, chips, stains, or discolorations you may be a candidate for porcelain veneers, a highly effective and minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that can achieve beautiful results.

Porcelain veneers are thin facings custom-made of the highest quality ceramic materials that are designed to fit perfectly over the front of your teeth. One of the most conservative cosmetic treatments available, veneers can mask a host of dental imperfections to give you the smile that you have always wanted. Porcelain veneers not only enhance and improve the shape of your teeth, they are able to create an overall whiter and brighter smile.

One of the most appealing aspects of the process of fabricating porcelain veneers is that they involve minimal tooth preparation and take just a few visits. Porcelain veneers, once they are fabricated and fitted, are permanently bonded to the underlying teeth. The result is a naturally pleasing smile that is both strong and durable.

Veneers are routinely used to fix:

  • Teeth that are discolored (that cannot be corrected with teeth whitening)

  • Teeth that are worn down

  • Teeth that are chipped or broken

  • Teeth that are misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped (for example, have craters or bulges in them)

  • Teeth with gaps between them (to close the space between these teeth)

A new, younger smile can be achieved by replaced yellowed, worn bondings with beautiful porcelain veneers.

Worn teeth make you look older than you have to be. Porcelain veneers give a younger, more vibrant look.

Frequently asked questions

Do veneers ruin your teeth?

Dental veneers do not damage your natural teeth. Veneers can actually protect your natural teeth from further breaking down and dental veneers can add strength to your natural teeth especially if your natural teeth are already fragile.

What is the procedure for getting a veneer?

To prepare a tooth for a veneer, your dentist will reshape the tooth surface, to the thickness of the veneer that will be added to the tooth surface. Next, we will take an impression, of your tooth. This is then sent out to a dental laboratory, which will make a custom veneer specifically for your teeth. It usually takes 2-4 weeks for the veneers to come back from the laboratory. Temporary dental veneers can be used in the meantime.

How do I take care of my new veneers?

A dental veneer is a long-term restoration that, if properly cared for, can serve you well for many years to come. Once your veneers are placed, it requires the same brushing, flossing, and periodic checkups as your natural teeth. Avoid biting your fingernails and chewing on hard or sticky objects such as ice, pencils, or taffy, which can damage or loosen your veneers. Remember, clenching and grinding your teeth puts excessive pressure on both natural teeth and dental restorations. Unless treated, this habit can compromise the longevity and integrity of your dental work, including veneers.

How long do dental veneers last?

How long veneers lasts depends on various factors, including your level of oral care, diet, and oral habits. While the standard answer is that dental veneers can last anywhere from 5 to 15 years, existing literature confirms that most dental veneers remain in place at 15 to 20 years.
