What Are Porcelain Veneers?
We offer porcelain veneers as a way to perfect patients' smiles. They are made from very thin layers of porcelain that are bonded to the front of your teeth using dental cement. But first, we'll need to create a model of your teeth/mouth in order to personalize your veneers to suit and match the rest of your natural teeth. The model will be sent to a dental lab and your veneers will be custom-made and then sent back to us. Before the veneers are placed, your teeth will need to be reshaped, therefore, your enamel will be shaved down. Now your new smile is one step closer to being complete.
If you have minor cracks or chips on your front teeth, porcelain veneers can permanently improve their shape and function. Cracks should also be dealt with in a timely manner. If it's just a minor crack where your tooth enamel can be shaved down a thin cover bonded to the tooth, we'll use porcelain veneers. If it's more major, we'll discuss other treatment options.
Gapped spaces can leave patients with low self-esteem. They can hinder the appearance of your smile and also negatively affect your oral health due to teeth shifting. By adding a thin coating of porcelain to the front of your teeth, small gaps can easily be filled, leaving you feeling much more confident in your smile.
If you have teeth that are crooked, bent inwards, or that have pits or bumps, porcelain veneers can be used to reshape them into your desired shape so they have a nice, natural look. They'll completely restore your smile and camouflage any defects that left you feeling like you previously needed to hide your smile.

Porcelain Veneer FAQs
What is a temporary veneer?
While your permanent veneers are being custom-made, you may be given a temporary veneer to cover your tooth in the meantime. Because it'll only be temporarily bonded to the front of your tooth, you'll need to take extra precautions when eating or brushing your teeth. Definitely avoid chewing gum or biting into apples or ice.
Will my teeth be sensitive after getting porcelain veneers?
As you get used to your new porcelain veneers, you may experience some tooth sensitivity. Every patient's experience varies, but some report sensitivity lasts for a few days to a couple of weeks. If you're experiencing sensitivity, avoid eating or drinking things that are too hot or too cold. Rinsing your mouth with warm salt water can also help reduce swelling, along with taking over-the-counter medications like Tylenol as needed.
How long do porcelain veneers last?
Porcelain veneers, when taken care of properly and following a good oral hygiene routine, can last upwards of 10 years or more. If your veneers ever crack, chip or fall out, you should contact our dental office immediately to have them repaired or replaced.
