What are Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers are thin sheaths of dental grade porcelain. We custom craft these restorations and affix them to the front surfaces of teeth to transform damaged and cosmetically flawed teeth into beautiful smiles.

How are Porcelain Veneers Placed?

Porcelain veneer treatments are completed in two appointments. During the initial visit, we prepare your teeth by removing enough surface level tooth enamel to accommodate the added structure of the porcelain veneers. Then, we capture impressions that are used by our dental lab to craft your veneers. To protect the prepared tooth structure, we place a temporary veneer. When your final restoration arrives from the lab, we’ll call to schedule your second appointment. You’ll return for this second, shorter visit where we simply remove your temporary and replace it with a flawless, custom veneer.

Who is a Good Candidate for Veneers?

Any patient who wants to create a flawless smile without spending months or years completing more advanced cosmetic and restorative dentistry services or orthodontic treatment should consider porcelain veneers. It allows us to completely transform your smile’s appearance and function in just two short treatment appointments. We can use veneers to correct a number of cosmetic dental flaws, including:

  • Chips, cracks, and breaks in tooth enamel
  • Dental discoloration or staining that can’t be removed with traditional teeth whitening
  • Cosmetic irregularities like differences in size or shape of teeth
  • Minor orthodontic issues like unevenly spaced teeth

How Long do Veneers Last?

With proper care, your porcelain veneers will stay in place creating a beautiful smile for ten years or longer. In order to ensure the longevity of your porcelain veneers, keep the following at-home care tips in mind:

  • Brush teeth two minutes at a time twice a day using soft toothbrushes and minimally abrasive toothpaste
  • Floss daily, and consider using a waxed floss or water flosser to avoid tugging around the edges of your veneers
  • Visit our team twice each year for dental exams and teeth cleanings
  • Don’t use teeth as tools or chew on ice, nails, and other hard objects
  • Use mouthguards as directed to protect teeth during athletic events or from nighttime teeth grinding and clenching
