What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin shells that are placed on top of your natural teeth to transform their appearance. Veneers are custom fit to match the shape, size, length, and color of your natural teeth for a natural solution to your smile insecurities.

Because porcelain veneers have the light-reflecting properties that natural teeth do, they are highly stain-resistant and tolerant of your favorite foods and drinks.

Veneers will completely transform your smile, so it’s important that you choose a qualified dentist that has the experience and artful touch to help you achieve natural-looking results.

FAQs About Porcelain Veneers

To help you better understand if you can benefit from porcelain veneers, check out some frequently asked questions.

Q: What conditions can porcelain veneers treat?

A: Veneers are ideal in a variety of situations. Many patients with discolored, damaged, misaligned, or worn-down teeth seek veneers as a solution to transform their smile. To determine if you are a candidate for veneers, we are happy to schedule a consultation with you!

Q: What steps are involved in the procedure?

A: We ensure that we take our time throughout the process, always explaining our reasoning and helping you understand the process. Veneers typically take a total of three appointments to be properly secured in your mouth.

During the first appointment, our prosthodontist in Chicago will discuss your smile goals with you and provide realistic expectations of what you can expect. Feel free to ask as many questions as you have during this appointment!

The second appointment consists of preparing your teeth for your veneers. We will remove approximately 0.3 to 0.8 millimeters of enamel from your natural teeth to create room for your veneers. We will take impressions and send them to a dental laboratory where your custom smile will be created. We will place temporary veneers over your natural teeth until your final veneers are ready.

The third and final appointment consists of cementing the veneer to your tooth and removing any excess material.

Q: How can I care for my new porcelain veneers?

A: Caring for your new veneers isn’t as complicated as you may think. Make sure to continue brushing and flossing daily to maintain good oral health. Avoid chewing ice or biting into crunchy food.

Q: How long do veneers last?

A: How long your veneers will last depends on how well you care for them! On average, veneers last 10 years, but some patients are able to extend their lifespan up to 20 years! Despite porcelain being a tough and durable material, it isn’t immune to damages. If you believe you need to get a veneer fixed, don’t hesitate to call our team.
