What are Veneers?
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells created from a tooth-colored porcelain material. After being created specially for you right here in our office, these shells are bonded to the front of your natural teeth to whiten and enhance the look of your smile. Getting veneers generally takes two visits to our office: one to take an impression of the teeth to be treated, and one to cement the shells to your teeth.
What are Veneers for?
Veneers are a form of cosmetic dentistry to consider whether you are trying to whiten your teeth, or correct their shape or size. Cosmetic veneers can be a great way to improve your appearance. Veneers can help to fix teeth that are discolored, worn down, chipped, broken, misaligned, uneven, irregularly shaped or that have gaps between them.
How long do Veneers last?
The expected lifetime of a veneer is somewhere between seven and twenty years. Veneers sometimes come off or chip. If this happens, the porcelain can be repaired or replaced. Also, over time, the living tooth and gum tissue around the veneers will undergo changes that may require alterations to your veneers.
