Dental veneers are custom-made shells of porcelain designed to cover the front surface of a set of teeth and improve appearance.

Veneers are the solution for:
  • Discolored teeth
  • Worn down teeth
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Teeth that are uneven or irregularly shaped
  • Gaps between teeth
Benefits of dental veneers:
  • Veneers make teeth look natural and healthy
  • Stain resistant
  • Dark teeth appear whiter
  • Quick procedure
  • No downtime or recovery time

Getting a dental veneer usually requires two trips to the dentist:

  • Diagnosis and treatment planning
  • Your dentist will remove between 1/2 millimeter and 1 millimeter of enamel from the tooth surface. Next, your dentist will make a model or impression of your tooth and send it out to the laboratory. It usually takes up to 2 weeks for the dental clinic to receive the veneers from the laboratory
  • To prepare your tooth to receive the veneer, your tooth will be cleaned, polished and etched. A special cement is applied onto the veneer and then placed on your tooth. The final steps involve removing any excess cement, evaluating your bite and making any necessary final adjustments to the veneer

Do Dental Veneers Require Special Care?

Dental veneers do not require any special care and generally last between 5 and 10 years.

We do recommend to:

  • Continue to follow good oral hygiene practices, including brushing and flossing as you normally would
  • Avoid stain-causing foods and beverages such as coffee, tea or red wine
  • Avoid biting into hard foods in the area where the veneers are placed
