Veneers

What are veneers?

Veneers reshape or enhance the appearance of teeth creating beautiful smiles. This cosmetic procedure is more conservative than crowns as it requires only minimal shaving on the front of the tooth.


What is the process?

We begin by imagining the patient's new smile. How can it be perfected? This is of utmost importance. We then create the desired look by applying temporary material to outline the desired smile so it can be visualized by the patient. The final veneers are produced in a laboratory and cemented permanently for the patient. 


What are the risks?

De-bonding can occur over time. Clenching and grinding can cause chipping. Most risks can be reduced by appropriate cleaning and avoiding directly biting into harder foods (e.g. apples, corn, etc).


How long do they last?

Properly cared for veneers last approximately ten years.
