What Are Porcelain Veneers and What Can they Do for Your Smile?

A beautiful smile can enhance a person’s appearance and increase his or her confidence. Porcelain veneers are thin layers of porcelain shaped to cover the front surface of existing teeth and create the appearance of beautiful, natural teeth. Veneers should feel, look, and function like natural tooth surfaces. They are stain-resistant and require very little care beyond typical daily oral hygiene practices, like brushing and flossing. Your dentist can help you determine if porcelain veneers are right for you.

  • Who Should Consider Veneers
    Veneers are a great option for people with disproportionately large or small, oddly shaped, irreversibly discolored, or otherwise unusual teeth. Porcelain veneers can also disguise gaps or damage caused by injuries or past dental procedures. The procedure is not for everyone and cannot correct functional problems of the teeth. If you are considering veneers, your dentist can help you decide if they are a good option for you.
  • What You Can Expect with Veneers
    Porcelain veneers typically last five to 10 years. However, with proper care, they can last much longer. Cracking, chipping, and other issues are possible but not common. To ensure your veneers last, avoid clenching and grinding your teeth, biting your nails, chewing hard objects, or otherwise putting unnecessary pressure on the teeth. Veneers are not reversible, because a layer of enamel must be removed from your natural teeth before the veneers can be bonded to the surface. For this reason, it is important to determine if veneers are for you before you commit to the procedure.
