Treatment with Porcelain Veneers

Dr. Halim will review each patient’s budget, concerns, and goals in order to create a custom treatment plan. To begin treatment, Dr. Halim will remove a small amount of the tooth enamel to ensure that the veneers adhere to the teeth. Then, he takes impressions of the teeth. Once the porcelain veneers are fabricated, he will check the fit and color of the veneers. Finally, he will bond the veneers to the teeth.

We recommend that patients stay away from hard foods that can damage the veneers. Some beverages such as coffee, tea, and fruit juice can also cause staining. It typically takes two weeks for patients to fully adjust to their dental veneers. After this period, veneers should feel comfortable and just like natural teeth.

Porcelain Veneer FAQs

Learn answers to commonly asked questions that many patients may have about dental veneers:

What are the benefits of porcelain veneers?

Dental veneers require no special maintenance to look and feel like natural tooth enamel. They can treat crooked, cracked, misshapen, discolored, chipped, or broken teeth. Veneers can also close small gaps between teeth. As a longer-lasting alternative to dental bonding, porcelain veneers provide durability and balance to the smile.

Do veneers change color?

Veneers are made of a stain-resistant and durable material. Once we color-match your veneers to your natural teeth, they should remain the same color for years. However, if they begin to stain, they can’t be treated with traditional teeth whitening methods. The discolored veneers will need to be replaced.

Do veneers get cavities?

No, veneers can’t get cavities. However, your natural tooth is still under the veneer. The natural tooth structure is still susceptible to tooth decay. Make sure that you keep up with a quality oral healthcare routine. Brush and floss like you would normally, and make sure you’re visiting for your bi-annual checkups. Our office makes sure that everything is still in good condition.

Do veneers break easily?

While veneers are very thin, they don’t break easily. They’re made of extremely durable dental ceramic material. It isn’t as strong as your natural tooth structure, but it comes very close. To avoid risking breaks or chips, try not to bite down on anything hard directly with your veneers. Try to distribute pressure evenly when you bite and chew as well.

How long do veneers last?

Veneers last over 10 years in most cases. As they age, the adhesive used to adhere them to your tooth does weaken over time. After the 10-year mark, you may notice your veneers loosening or falling off. If this happens, contact us immediately to get a replacement veneer.

Am I a good candidate for porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are able to take care of a wide variety of cosmetic dental problems. If you have discolored, broken, or misshapen teeth, veneers offer a solution. They can also treat gaps between your teeth as well. You have to be in overall good oral health to get veneers. You also need to be looking for a permanent solution. Once you get veneers, you always have to have a restoration, as the natural tooth structure is removed to make room for the veneers.
