What Is a Veneer?

Here is what you need to know.

A veneer is a custom-made ceramic or porcelain facing that is bonded onto a tooth. It can make a tooth look whiter and cover our common imperfections. It can also change the shape or alignment of a tooth. It can be used to treat worn teeth or crooked teeth too.

This cosmetic treatment is very comfortable from start to finish. Many times your teeth require no preparation or minimal preparation. We will make sure that the process is entirely comfortable. You can also be sedated for the tooth preparation if desired.

First Appointment

To begin, you, our lab technician, and the dentist will have a consultation to determine your exact wants and needs. We’ll take impressions or models and take some photographs of your teeth.

Second Appointment

Your teeth are lightly prepared so that the veneers do not appear bulky and blend in naturally with your smile. Temporary veneers are placed that mimic the planned size, shape, and color of the new veneers.

Third Appointment

We will evaluate your comfort, function, and satisfaction with the temporary veneers. This often skipped-step helps us make sure that your new smile is just what you want.

Final Appointment

The temporary veneers are removed and replaced by the final veneers. Once approved these will be bonded into place. Now all you have to do is smile until your cheeks get tired. Generally, this process takes 3-4 weeks from start to finish.

Common Patient Questions

Five FAQs about porcelain veneers.

  • How long will veneers last?
    Veneers are among the longest lasting restorations in dentistry. Most studies have found that they will last 10-20 years. We have seen many cases that have lasted much longer. How long they last will largely depend on how you take care of them. The most common cause for the premature failure of a veneer is clenching or grinding your teeth. If you are prone to this condition and are considering veneers, a nightguard may be recommended.
  • Are veneers safe?
    The best dental treatment is usually the most conservative dental treatment. Veneers are more conservative than crowns and not as conservative as orthodontic treatment. Together we can help you better understand any potential risks and make the right decision for you.
  • How much do veneers cost?

    The cost will vary according to the number of teeth requiring treatment and your individual needs. Our skilled dentist provides a fee and some payment plan options before starting any treatment.

  • Will my insurance pay for veneers?
    Since veneers are generally provided for cosmetic purposes, most patients do not have a benefit for this procedure.
  • What are alternatives to veneers?
