What are Porcelain Veneers?
Think of veneers like covers for the fronts of your teeth. Made of extremely thin porcelain, veneers are fitted right over the top of your existing tooth and firmly bonded in place to give you a beautiful smile. While porcelain itself is a brittle material, once that material is cemented to your tooth it acquires that tooth’s strength and has a solid, all-natural feel.

Porcelain Veneer Procedure
It takes a two-step process to place veneers. First, we remove a small layer of the existing tooth’s surface to make room for the new veneer. We then use our digital impression scanner to capture an impression of the teeth receiving veneers. This means no traditional goopy mess for impressions. We send this impression off to our lab where they will create your new veneers matched to the tooth shade of your choice. Once the veneers arrive at our office from the lab, a thin coating of cement resin is placed on the tooth before the veneer is fitted on top and bonded. The whole process is fairly simple and requires little to no anesthesia.
In a short time, you will have a brand new, confident smile that you are proud to show off.
How Do I Take Care of My Veneers?
One of the great benefits of porcelain veneers is how resistant they are to future staining. With a regular brushing and flossing regimen, porcelain veneers should last 10-15 years and maintain their bright whiteness. Immediately after the procedure, you may have some increased sensitivity to hot and cold, but that should dissipate quickly. The only things you really shouldn’t do with veneers are chew ice or bite your fingernails, as both can cause the veneers to chip.
