Perfect your smile with veneers,
What are Veneers?
Veneers are a custom-made solution for perfecting your smile! Veneers are shell-like implants that are shaped and bonded directly onto the surface of an individual tooth. They are typically made from porcelain or composite resin. Veneers are perfect for concealing imperfections such as:
- Tooth gaps
- Chipped teeth
- Tooth discoloration
- Crooked or oddly shaped teeth
- Misaligned teeth
Benefits of Veneers
Each type of veneer has its own unique benefits. If you are having a tough time deciding on the type of material you'd like for your veneers, your dentist would be happy to provide a recommendation!
- Porcelain veneers - thin shells of porcelain adhered to the outer surface of the tooth that mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural teeth that are stain-resistant, and gum-tolerant.
- Composite resin veneers - while not as strong as porcelain veneers, these are more easily replaced and repaired. The resin is added to your teeth in liquid form before being cured, polished, and adhered to your teeth.
- Lumineers - Lumineers are a minimally invasive alternative to veneers made from a thin laminate that's applied seamlessly over your existing teeth. This procedure typically requires no shots, drilling, and less preparation than traditional veneers.
How Long Do Veneers Last?
With proper at-home care and regular trips to the dentist, veneers can last for several years! Composite veneers usually last for 4-8 years, while porcelain veneers last between 10-15 years.
