What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic option that helps to enhance and perfect the look of your smile. Despite being incredibly thin, veneers can last upwards of 10 years before they’ll need to be replaced. If you’re unhappy with your smile and ready for a change, the best option for you would be veneers. The procedure is noninvasive, quick and requires little to no local anesthetic.
Why are Porcelain Veneers needed?
Veneers can cover a range of dental woes quickly and effectively. You can experience the benefits of a fuller, healthier-looking smile without needing to undergo invasive and drastic procedures. Some of the reasons you may want to consider veneers include:
- Your front teeth are chipped and cracked
- Your front teeth are uneven or spaced
- You have severe discoloration and staining
- You’re unhappy with the look of your smile
- You want a dramatic change without the extensive work

Who’s a good candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
The majority of patients who want veneers can have the procedure done safely and easily. Veneers are ideal only for adult patients and should not be considered for pediatric patients or teenagers. Veneers are easy to care for and can last for a decade, so they’re great for those individuals looking for solid, long-lasting results. We can determine if you’ll benefit from veneers with a simple dental examination.
What happens during the Porcelain Veneer procedure?
Little to no anesthetic is required in order to begin the veneer procedure. We first file down the front teeth to create a rougher surface for the veneers to adhere to. Impressions are taken to craft the porcelain veneers themselves. You’ll then come in for a second appointment and will have the veneers placed permanently using dental-grade bonding adhesive. Your veneers will be smoothed down and filed so that they look completely natural and even while enhancing your existing smile and appearance.
