What are porcelain veneers?

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells made with porcelain materials. These cosmetic coverings bond to the surface of your front teeth to improve their shape, size, and color. Porcelain veneers can transform your teeth for a more attractive appearance. They are also stain-resistant and rarely discolor over time. 

The Queens Dental Group team may recommend veneers if you’re unhappy with the way your smile looks. Since veneers target the teeth in the front of your mouth, they offer a straighter, whiter, Hollywood smile.

Which dental concerns can porcelain veneers address?

Porcelain veneers can address multiple cosmetic concerns, such as:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Uneven teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Teeth that are too small or large
  • Worn teeth
  • Crooked teeth

If you have minor tooth damage, porcelain veneers are ideal alternatives to dental crowns.

What can I expect from porcelain veneers?

Placing veneers is a quick process that typically takes two visits. When you arrive, the team performs a dental exam and removes a small amount of enamel from your tooth’s surface. This step ensures the veneers blend in with your teeth, rather than appearing bulky or unnatural.

Before you leave, the team takes impressions of your teeth to create your custom-made porcelain veneers. They place temporary veneers over your teeth to protect them while you wait for your permanent cosmetic coverings. After two to three weeks, you return to the office for your permanent veneers.

The team removes your temporary restorations and cleans and etches your teeth. This process creates a rough surface to which the veneers can adhere. After preparing your teeth, your provider applies a special solution that allows the veneers to bond. They make any necessary adjustments before cementing your new veneers in place.

How do I care for porcelain veneers?

With proper care, porcelain veneers can last for 10-30 years. Taking care of your veneers is essential to extend their longevity. To protect your veneers, the team encourages you to:

  • Brush and floss twice a day
  • Avoid chewing on ice, hard candies, and sticky sweets
  • Visit for a professional teeth cleaning twice a year
  • Rinse with a fluoride mouthwash
