What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells (made of porcelain) that adhere to your natural teeth to improve the health and look of your smile. Porcelain veneers are:

  • Extremely durable
  • Very realistic
  • Improve your smile

Veneers can fix multiple cosmetic dental issues, such as:

  • Discoloration: Teeth whitening may not always fully fix our tooth’s discoloration, and veneers can provide us with lasting white teeth.
  • Uneven teeth: The wear and tear of our teeth can cause unevenness and cosmetic issues that veneers can easily fix.
  • Worn enamel: Are your teeth sensitive due to worn-down enamel? Porcelain veneers are durable and strong, removing that sensitivity.
  • Genetics: Sometimes, we aren’t happy with the look and feel of our natural teeth, such as wide spacing, and veneers can provide the look of your dream smile.

Smile Makeover: The Process for Porcelain Veneers

Once your eligibility is determined, we will go through treatment details and then we can prepare your teeth for the veneers and the correct color for the veneers will be chosen. Veneers can often be put on in two dental visits, over the course of six weeks.

Your teeth will be thoroughly cleaned to get rid of any bacteria, and then a grinding tool will be used to create a rough texture on the tooth for the veneer to stick to. Then, cement is used to bind the tooth to the veneer for a strong and lasting hold.

Unlike many dental treatments, veneers don’t have a long recovery time after placement. You can eat and drink after having the veneers placed. Porcelain veneers often last at least 10-15 years.
