Porcelain Veneers for a Flawless Smile

Porcelain VeneersSome patients come to us loving their smile but wanting just a little bit more in terms of aesthetics.  To perfect an already great smile, we may suggest porcelain veneers.  Porcelain veneers are often our go-to tool to correct minor imperfections on the surface of teeth or spacing issues.

Here are some frequently asked questions and answers about veneers:

Q:  Are veneers heavy or thick?  Will I feel them in my mouth?

A:  No, in fact veneers are thinner than a fingernail, once they are in place you won’t even know they are there!

Q:  How long do they last?

A:  Properly installed, veneers can last from 10-20 years.  A great investment for an enhanced smile!

Q:  How are they attached?  Can they fall off?

A:  Veneers are attached to your tooth with a very strong bonding compound.  They do not fall off and provide years of durable use.

Q:  Do veneers look like natural teeth?

A:  Porcelain is the perfect material to copy tooth enamel, as it is incorporates luster, shine and translucence to look just like your natural teeth.

Q:  What if the surrounding teeth are a different color?

A:  Generally what we recommend is that we use a whiter shade of porcelain for the veneer and perform tooth whitening in conjunction with the veneer process to give you a perfect match throughout your mouth.

Q:  Do veneers stain?

A:  No, porcelain veneers do not stain, even over time.
