Whether you want to make a small tweak to your smile’s appearance or experience a complete transformation, dental veneers could be the perfect cosmetic treatment for you! Porcelain veneers are long-lasting, resistant to chips and stains, and customized to your unique smile goals. Read on to learn more!

What Are Dental Veneers?

Veneers are thin, yet durable, shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front side of teeth. They are completely customizable so patients can choose the shape, size, length, shade, and overall look of their veneers to get the exact smile they envision.

What Can Veneers Fix?

Veneers can address:

  • Discolored Teeth
  • Misshapen Teeth
  • Small Gaps
  • Uneven Teeth
  • Worn-Down Teeth

It’s important to note that veneers can’t treat dental problems like cavities, infection, or decay. They are solely a cosmetic-based treatment used to correct esthetic tooth imperfections. Dental disease, including gum disease, will need to be treated prior to receiving veneers.

The Longevity of Veneers

Veneers are considered a permanent cosmetic treatment because they require a significant amount of enamel removal for a snug fit. After the enamel removal is complete, there is no way to undo this step of the process. However, one of the many benefits of veneers is that they last for a long time! With proper care, the porcelain shells can last upwards of 20 years, after which they may need to be replaced.
