A veneer is a thin piece of porcelain used to re-create the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel. Dental veneers are typically used to improve the appearance of teeth that are stained or discolored, which can be attributed to a number of different factors, including:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Gaps
  • Crowding
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Severe stains

Dental veneers are also used to quickly, effectively, and painlessly change the shape of one or more teeth that may be chipped, uneven, misaligned, or even worn down. They can also be used to close small gaps between teeth.

Benefits of Veneers

Because the shade of a veneer is carefully matched to your natural teeth, they’re difficult to differentiate them from your natural teeth. Porcelain is also naturally more stain-resistant than tooth enamel and is thus less affected by coffee or red wine.

Though the bonding material protects your underlying tooth, you still need a regular oral hygiene routine. This includes brushing your teeth at least twice a day, flossing once, and having regular professional checkups and cleanings. While you can eat almost anything you like, use reasonable precautions; dental veneers are not made of an indestructible material. People who grind their teeth at night are often advised to wear a night guard. Essentially, porcelain veneers have the same strengths and weaknesses as a natural tooth and should be taken care of in exactly the same way.

How Long do Veneers Last?

With proper care and attention, porcelain veneers can last 10-15 years.
