Are Dental Veneers for You?
Dental Veneers can help you look better instantly!
Dental Veneers are the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedure. A porcelain veneer is as thin as a contact lens and can be bonded to the tooth with minimal drilling. An interesting thing about veneers is that they can correct imperfections and add strength to your teeth.
Veneers are made of high-grade porcelain that looks natural, blends beautifully with the surrounding teeth, and are resistant to staining and discoloration. They can make teeth instantly better by hiding imperfections and make them dazzling white.
What conditions can dental veneers improve?
If you have any imperfections with your teeth, such as darker color, crowding or excessive spacing, dental veneers could be a solution for you. Dental veneers are porcelain coverings for the front of your teeth that stay on permanently and make your teeth look whiter while getting rid of those imperfections.
Cosmetic dentistry and dental veneers can permanently fix following conditions that make your teeth appear imperfect:
- Chipped teeth
- Permanently stained teeth
- Teeth with old fillings
- Teeth with cavities
- Crowded teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Teeth with gaps
How long will porcelain dental veneers last?
Veneers can last up to 10-15 years, but that only depends if you take good care of them on a daily basis. The main reason for veneers to fail is getting decay under them (a cavity) or simply breakage.
The best way to prevent a cavity under dental veneers is by flossing, brushing, and eating a diet free of high-sugar foods daily. It may be hard to resist carbonated and sports drinks, but by taking those things out of daily consumption your dental veneers will last years longer.
What is the difference between veneers and lumineers?
Dental veneers are made out of thicker porcelain. Therefore they tend to have a longer longevity. Lumineers are made out of thinner porcelain material and are a good option to correct minor imperfections.
Patients ask our cosmetic dentist: Do dental veneers hurt?
Our answer: NEVER. Preparing teeth for porcelain veneers is a quick procedure. A pleasant and relaxing experience is a standard at our office for any dental work. We want to make sure that patients are completely comfortable and feel minimal to no pain during the procedure. At our office, we do everything possible to make our patients comfortable and relaxed for any dental procedure.
How long does it take to make veneers?
It takes two appointments to have a new beautiful smile with custom made dental veneers.
At the first appointment, we start off by preparing your teeth for dental veneers, and we’ll install temporary veneers. At the second appointment, we would take off temporary dental veneers and put on permanent dental veneers using very strong permanent cement ( you don’t have to worry about those veneers detaching at some point.)

When a porcelain veneer is not enough: Porcelain Crowns

This porcelain crown will look exactly like your tooth before the damage and will blend flawlessly with the rest of your teeth. A dental crown can strengthen your tooth and prevent it from breaking.
