What Are Dental Veneers?


Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length.

How Long Do Veneers Last For?


They can last from seven to twenty years or more. Part of what determines their exact longevity is the health of your mouth. The most common reason they fail is because of a patients oral hygiene. Loking after your teeth and gums will help them last longer.

What Types of Problems Do Dental Veneers Fix?


Teeth that are discolored — either because of root canal treatment; stains from tetracycline or other drugs, excessive fluoride or other causes; or the presence of large resin fillings that have discolored the tooth

Teeth that are worn down

Teeth that are chipped or broken

Teeth that are misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped (for example, have craters or bulges in them) where you don’t want teeth straightening

Teeth with gaps between them (to close the space between these teeth)

After we have spent time together to decide the final shape and size of our veneers, we prepare the teeth to within 0.1mm accuracy.

Our ceramic technician then artfully layers shaded porcelain to replicate the multiple layers within teeth. This leads to far more natural appearance.

The final veneers are bonded onto your teeth following our strict bonding protocol. We then polish and glaze to give a final luster.

We take pride in educating our patients in what their treatment entails.
