Porcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry option for people who want to improve the appearance of their teeth. Veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that attach to the front surface of your teeth to hide unsightly imperfections and improve the overall look of your smile. If you have discolored, gapped, uneven, or disfigured teeth, porcelain veneers may be the perfect treatment to help you enhance your smile and boost your self-esteem.

How Do Porcelain Veneers Work?

Porcelain veneers are custom-made to fit your teeth, and they are bonded to the front of your teeth to cover up any imperfections. They are made of a strong and durable dental-grade porcelain material, and they are designed to look natural and beautiful.

In order to attach the veneers to your teeth, your dentist will need to remove a small portion of the enamel to ensure the veneers fit properly and look natural. Once the veneers are in place, they can last up to 10 years with proper care.

Porcelain Veneer Evaluation

Before you can get porcelain veneers, we will need to evaluate your teeth to make sure you are a good candidate for the procedure. During the evaluation, we will perform a thorough oral exam and take X-rays to determine the health of your teeth and gums.

We may also recommend certain treatments to improve the condition of your teeth before the veneers can be placed. For example, if you have cavities or gum disease, we may recommend getting a filling or having a deep cleaning before the procedure.

The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers can provide many benefits, including:

• Improved appearance of your teeth

• Improved self-confidence

• Increased durability

• Quick results

• Low-maintenance

• Stain resistance

Additionally, a big benefit of porcelain veneers is that they can help reduce the risk of tooth decay and gum disease by providing a barrier between the teeth and bacteria and plaque. This can help maintain the health of your teeth and gums. Also, porcelain veneers can improve the alignment of your bite and jaw if your teeth are slightly misaligned. This can help reduce the risk of TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders.


Porcelain veneers are an excellent option for people who want to improve the appearance of their teeth and enhance their smile. They are a safe and effective treatment that can provide long-lasting results and improved self-confidence. If you think porcelain veneers may be right for you, contact your dentist for an evaluation to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
