With proper care and routine maintenance, your new veneers will last for about 10 years.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are incredibly thin shells that are attached to the very front of your smile. Veneers can cover a range of imperfections and flaws that would otherwise cause the need for more invasive and expensive work. Veneers can totally transform your entire smile and are incredibly long-lasting. Veneers typically last for about a decade before they may need to be replaced.
Why would Porcelain Veneers be needed?
You may need veneers if you have gaps and spaces between your teeth. Veneers can even help to cover areas of severe discoloration and staining. This restorative option is ideal for patients who have unsightly and uneven teeth, especially if the teeth are cracked or chipped. You may want to have veneers placed before a big event, like a graduation or wedding.

Who’s a good candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Most patients who want veneers can easily have the procedure done in our office. Little to absolutely no anesthetic is required, so it’s safe and easy for most individuals. We will perform an exam and consultation with you before the veneers are placed to ensure that they’re right for you. If your front teeth are decayed or loose, you may need other treatment.
What happens during the Porcelain Veneer procedure?
The front of your teeth are buffed slightly to make room for the new veneers. Impressions are then taken of this area and sent to a local dental laboratory. Lab technicians work to create your new veneers and send them back to our office. Your second appointment involves bonding the veneers to your teeth. We will make slight adjustments to these restorations as needed to perfect the fit and feel. With proper care and routine maintenance, your new veneers will last for about 10 years. If the veneers start to show signs of wear and tear, they can be replaced easily and quickly so that you always have a full smile.
