Veneers are a permanent cosmetic procedure. They need a thin layer of enamel to be removed from your teeth prior to placement and are bonded to the remaining tooth structure. For this reason, only a trained dental professional can make repairs or adjustments to your veneers.
The lifespan of your veneer depends on the type you choose, and your veneers will eventually need to be repaired or replaced just like any other dental work. Porcelain veneers typically last 10-15 years, while ceramic veneers can last up to 20 years.
Generally, no, veneers are not painful to receive. Patients who receive 2-4 porcelain veneers typically experience no discomfort. However, patients who receive eight or more veneers may experience some sensitivity or tenderness in their gums due to the length of the procedure.
With porcelain or ceramic veneers, you can expect the process to take 3-4 weeks. You’ll visit our office 2-3 times during this time, from your initial consultation to the final fitting and application.
We offer dental veneers made from high-quality porcelain or ceramic. Each material is chosen for its strength, durability, and lifelike appearance.
