Veneers porcelain are composed of layers of thin dental porcelain that mimic the tooth’s enamel. Dental veneers adhere to the surface of the tooth and make the outward appearance of your smile more beautiful.

No matter why you want to pursue getting dental veneers, our friendly staff is here to provide you with the information you need to decide whether or not veneers are for you.
Our staff can provide you with a detailed estimate of what porcelain veneers cost after you have had your consultation. The price of your porcelain dental veneers will depend on the brand of veneers you choose and the number of teeth that are going to be covered by a veneer.
A porcelain veneers procedure is relatively simple. In order to ensure that your veneers have a custom-fit, your dentist will make a mold of your teeth. A small portion of your tooth’s enamel may need to be removed in order to attach the veneer. However, the entire procedure is totally painless. Once you have your veneer in place, it won’t shift around or stain. In fact, you will not be able to tell that it is there at all.
Porcelain crowns and porcelain teeth veneers are made out of the same material and serve similar functions. For instance, they both adhere to the structure of the tooth. They can also change the color and shape of the tooth. The primary difference between the two is that a porcelain crown fits over the entire tooth, serving as a “cap,” while a porcelain veneer only covers the front surface of the tooth.
Your dentist may recommend that you receive a porcelain crown when you have lost tooth structure due to injury, decay, age or because you suffer from bruxism. The dentist will need to take off more of the tooth’s enamel than with a veneer so that the crown can fit properly. Crowns make the tooth stronger than it was before, making them a good choice to fix issues with your back teeth.
If you take proper care of your veneers, they should last for decades. To ensure that your smile stays beautiful, brush and floss daily.
Lumineers® are an ultra-thin brand of veneer. They are so thin that your dentist may not have to remove any of your tooth’s enamel before your veneers are placed. Despite being so thin, they are very durable. They could possibly last more than 20 years!
Generally speaking, you will take care of your veneers in the same way that you take care of the rest of your teeth. This means brushing and flossing on a regular basis. You will want to be careful when you bite into certain kinds of hard foods. In addition, if you grind your teeth your dentist may recommend that you wear a custom-fitted night guard to protect your veneers.
