What are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are made of a thin layer of porcelain that fits securely and seamlessly over your own natural teeth.
Porcelain veneers are an easy, painless way to correct a variety of dental issues
including discoloration, cracks, gaps, and short or misshapen teeth.
- Consultation: Porcelain veneers require at least two dental appointments. During your first appointment, your dentist will examine your teeth to ensure they are healthy enough to accept veneers. If you have any kind of decay or gum disease, this will need to be treated first before the process can proceed.
- Preparation: If you are ready for veneers, your teeth will be prepped by having a thin layer of enamel shaved from the front of your teeth. This allows room for the thin layer of veneer and also roughens the surface to allow for a more secure bond between your teeth and the veneer.
- Placement: After your teeth are prepped, your dentist will then take an impression of your teeth. This impression will then be used as a mold for your veneers. Your personalized veneers will be ready in just about two weeks. Your second appointment will be much faster as your dentist will simply need to put the veneers in place and ensure they are secured and fitted properly.
Who Should Get Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are a versatile option to correct a wide range of dental concerns. Since they are an overlay that rests upon the existing teeth, porcelain veneers provide a mask to hide any imperfections without removing your natural teeth.

Porcelain Veneer Limitations and Considerations
Limitations of Use
Though porcelain veneers can hide most cosmetic dental issues, they cannot correct oral health issues. Cavities, gum disease, and other health matters will need to be corrected before veneers can be placed.
Keeping Up With Dental Health
Veneers can perfect the look of your teeth but they will not prevent decay. It is important that you keep up with brushing, flossing, and regular checkups to ensure you do not have decay forming beneath the surface of your veneers.
Veneers are Permanent
A thin layer of enamel must be removed in order to make room for the veneer and to create a roughened surface for the veneer to adhere to. Due to this, it is not possible to go back to your natural teeth. However, veneers are comfortable, safe, and easy to care for which means there is really no reason to reverse the process.
