What Are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are wafer-thin, customized shells of porcelain that are applied to the front side of your teeth. To allow the veneer to sit properly over your natural tooth, a layer of enamel will be removed and your natural tooth will be modified. Due to the modification process, veneers are considered a permanent solution for your smile. Veneers can improve teeth that are:
- Broken or chipped
- Misshapen or shortened
- Permanently discolored
- Slightly crooked
- Spaced too far apart with a gap

This will lead to improved personal and professional relationships and more memorable first impressions. It’s no secret that we’re more drawn to people who smile. Don’t be stuck behind one that you’re not happy to show off!
Porcelain Veneers FAQs
What is the veneers procedure like?
The veneers procedure takes place over the course of a few appointments. First, we’ll remove a thin layer of your natural teeth’s enamel and shape them to fit the porcelain shells. Next, we’ll take impressions and send them to an off-site lab, where your custom veneers will be created. Once we receive your veneers, we will check them for shade, size, and fit, before permanently bonding them to the front surface of your tooth.
Is there anything I can’t eat or drink once I get veneers?
No! The beauty of veneers is that they function just like natural teeth. The porcelain material is very strong and holds up well against all food types. Additionally, porcelain is stain resistant and allows you to enjoy all of your favorite colored foods and beverages.
What makes porcelain veneers different from other kinds of dental veneers?
Porcelain veneers differ from other types of veneers by their strength and customizability. Oftentimes, porcelain veneers provide the most natural appearance as they can be matched to the exact shade of your teeth. In addition to their look, porcelain is a durable material that provides long-lasting results.
