Porcelain veneers are a relatively conservative dental treatment, requiring very little modification. The end result is a beautiful smile that will last for years to come. Due to the overall design of a veneer, most of the original tooth integrity remains intact, only to be masked by a layer of porcelain. A thin porcelain veneer is bonded onto a tooth’s prepped surface, much like a false nail is applied to a natural fingernail. This veneer is made specifically for your mouth, covering the entire face of your teeth in porcelain that has been color-matched to your natural or whitened shade.
Your veneers are made in our dental lab, which is easily matched to nearly any contour, shade, or shape. Veneers are not prone to fading or yellowing over time and can be customized to individual requirements. As with many dental solutions, porcelain veneers are not permanent and may begin to wear out or chip with time. Typically, one can expect somewhere around ten years out of their veneers, especially with proper care. Patients can still enjoy their favorite food and drink while also improving their smile quality.
