Porcelain VeneersAn Overview

Whether you have a single cosmetic blemish or want a total smile makeover, porcelain veneers can give you the beautiful smile of your dreams. 

A porcelain veneer is a custom cosmetic solution made of high-quality dental ceramic. Like a thin shell, a veneer fits over the front and sides of a tooth. The veneer is intended to provide patients with a permanent solution for improving the appearance of their smile.

Porcelain veneers can be used to treat a wide range of cosmetic concerns. Dental veneers are custom-designed to look and function like your natural teeth so you can enjoy a beautiful and confident smile. Feeling good about your smile can help you enjoy a more fulfilling life- porcelain veneers can address your cosmetic concerns.

Porcelain Veneers Can Be Used to Treat:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • A cracked tooth
  • Damaged tooth
  • A chipped tooth
  • Misshapen tooth

Porcelain Veneers What to Expect

Precisely designed porcelain veneers achieve an end result that looks and feels like a natural smile. Dental veneers are custom-designed by our highly trained cosmetic dentists. The veneers are shaped and color-matched to blend seamlessly with your adjacent teeth.

The thin shell is made from a highly durable material that reflects light like natural tooth enamel. The material is stain and decay resistant providing patients with a long-term cosmetic solution.

At the beginning of treatment, a minimal amount of tooth enamel is removed from the surface of the tooth making room for the veneer. Because removal of tooth enamel is required for successful results, porcelain veneers are considered a permanent treatment option. Once the tooth is prepared, molds are taken and used to create a well fit veneer.

The dental veneer will be bonded to the surface of the tooth and polished to a natural sheen. Once the veneer is secured it can be cared for like your natural teeth. Routine dental cleanings and twice-daily brushing and flossing can help keep your dental veneers healthy and beautiful for years to come.

Porcelain Veneers FAQs

How long do porcelain veneers last?

Porcelain veneers are durable and designed to last for many years. With proper care, maintenance, and regular visits to our dental office they can last over 20 years.

Can you get teeth whitening with porcelain veneers?

Dental veneers are more stain-resistant than natural teeth and can maintain their beautiful appearance with good oral hygiene. You will not need to whiten your veneers because they can brighten your teeth by multiple shades.

Can you get a cavity with porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are not susceptible to tooth decay, but the natural teeth under them can get infected. Remember to maintain your oral hygiene and schedule biannual visits with us so that we can spot the earliest signs of infection.

Is it painful to receive porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneer treatment is not painful because we numb the treated area prior to your procedure. Following treatment, patients who receive four or fewer veneers will feel minimal pain, and those who receive eight or more veneers may feel soreness in the gums or jaw.
