Who Needs Dental Veneers?

Dental Veneers may be used to:

  • Close spaces between teeth
  • Improve the appearance of crooked teeth
  • Repair chipped or broken teeth
  • Cover stained or discolored teeth

Types of Dental Veneers

There are several types of dental veneers available:

  • Composite resin veneers are made using a tooth colored, biocompatible material that is applied directly to the tooth and sculpted into place. This type of dental veneer requires little to no preparation to the tooth and is not permanent.
  • A lumineer is a type of dental veneer. These also require little to no tooth preparation and can be removed if desired. Lumineers are not for everyone; the dentist can help you decide if they are right for you.
  • Porcelain veneers are thin, translucent shells of tooth-like material. Porcelain veneers are highly stain resistant and have similar light reflecting properties compared to natural teeth.

Porcelain Veneers What to Expect

About The Porcelain Veneer Procedure

Porcelain veneers generally take 2 – 3 visits to complete. After a comprehensive evaluation and consultation, the dentist will prepare the teeth by removing a small amount of enamel from each tooth. An impression will be taken and you will be fitted with temporary veneers while your final restorations are being created.

In approximately 2–3 weeks, your new porcelain veneers will be ready to be permanently attached to your teeth. After the dentist checks the fit and color and both you and the dentist are satisfied, a special bonding cement will be used to secure the porcelain veneers to your teeth.
