What Exactly are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells that we place over your natural teeth. They are delicate yet strong and durable, and can last many years with good upkeep. Veneers do not replace natural teeth, but instead conceal flaws including cracks, chips, gaps, crookedness, and discoloration. You might be surprised just how dramatically porcelain veneers can improve your smile.

During the placement procedure, we will first need to file down your natural teeth a little bit. This will make room in your mouth for the veneers, which are carefully bonded to your teeth with a special cement.

Taking Care of Your Veneers

To get the most out of your porcelain veneers and make them last, you need to maintain good oral hygiene habits. Continue brushing, flossing, and rinsing out your mouth as you normally would, and stick to routine checkups and dental cleanings every six months.

In addition, if you experience bruxism (jaw clenching and grinding), we recommend investing in a custom-made nightguard to protect your veneers from wear and tear.
