Enhance your smile with Porcelain Veneers

Some 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. If you want to take your smile from “okay” to “stunning”, ask us if veneers are a good option for you!
