What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic treatment designed to cover up imperfections including gaps, misshapen or chipped teeth, and severe stains that cannot be removed with traditional whitening techniques. Each veneer is a small, thin, tooth-shaped piece of porcelain that fits around your tooth and replaces the front chewing surface. By using a set of multiple veneers, you can easily correct almost any cosmetic issue with your teeth and get the bright, beautiful smile you deserve.

The Veneers Placement Process

The veneer placement process typically takes two appointments over the span of 2-3 weeks. Dr. Walton will begin by cleaning and numbing your mouth. Then, he will remove a very thin layer of enamel (about 0.5mm) from your teeth. This enamel is removed to ensure that your veneers will fit onto your teeth seamlessly. Impressions and photos of your teeth will then be taken and used to create your permanent veneers. In the meantime, you’ll wear a set of temporary veneers to keep your smile looking great in between your appointments.

When your veneers have been completed and sent to our office, Dr. Walton will check them for proper fit and finish, and bond your permanent veneers into place using dental cement. Finally, your new teeth will be buffed and polished, and the procedure is complete.

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin coverings placed over the entire front part of your tooth that will look like natural teeth. Veneers can be used to help correct many dental issues, including discolored, stained or chipped teeth  gaps in one’s teeth, and crooked or damaged teeth.

How long do veneers last?

The lifespan of veneers varies for people based on risk factors, but on average, you can expect them to last for 10 to 20 years with routine maintenance.

How painful are veneers?

Most people don’t experience any pain or discomfort when having permanent veneers fitted or after, but some tooth sensitivity is expected in the days or weeks following the treatment.

Can you get cavities with veneers?

Porcelain veneers themselves cannot get cavities. However, the teeth they adhere to are still subject to decay, which is why it is so important that you maintain a solid oral hygiene routine. If a cavity forms at the junction of the tooth and the veneer, your dentist will need to remove the decay and possibly replace the veneer.
