What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are extremely thin, custom made shells of ceramic material (porcelain) that are bonded to the front of teeth. Porcelain is the preferred material for veneers because it closely resembles natural tooth enamel. When teeth are discolored, uneven, crooked, or have gaps between them, veneers can conceal these imperfections to improve your smile.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers offer many benefits:
- Cover imperfections. Veneers can conceal a wide variety of imperfections in your teeth from discoloration to gaps with just one cosmetic procedure.
- Natural appearance. Porcelain veneers closely resemble tooth enamel in texture and color, giving you a new smile that looks natural.
- Durable. Porcelain is a strong and durable material that provides equivalent bite force to your natural teeth.
- Minimally invasive. Veneers are minimally invasive but provide maximum results. They are a conservative alternative to correct the shape, color or size of a tooth without having to do a full crown.
Are You a Good Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain Veneers are becoming an increasingly common cosmetic procedure. If your teeth are primarily healthy but don’t look their best, veneers provide a fast solution for a natural looking smile. A simple evaluation can determine whether or not you are an ideal candidate for porcelain veneers. Any restorative procedures that may be required will need to be performed first before you can receive veneers.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are veneers removable?
Once veneers are attached to your teeth, they can only be removed by your dentist. A very thin layer of enamel must be removed before the veneers are attached, which means they are essentially permanent.
Are veneers covered by insurance?
Unfortunately, because veneers are considered to be a cosmetic procedure, they are not covered by insurance. However, financing options are available to make them more affordable by dividing the cost across multiple payments.
How long do veneers last?
On average, veneers last 10-15 years. With excellent care and maintenance they can last longer, up to 30 years or more in some cases. If you are careful about what you eat and bite with your veneers and you take good care of the teeth under the veneers, they are more likely to last longer.
Are veneers made of other materials besides porcelain?
Some veneers are made of composite material, either custom or prefabricated. These veneers cost less, but they don’t tend to last as long or look as natural as porcelain. We recommend and provide porcelain veneers due to their many benefits.
