What Are Veneers?

Veneers involve applying a thin shell of material to cover a tooth's visible surface. Veneers can help with stained, chipped, misshapen, or irregularly spaced teeth. They can care for these cosmetic problems and others in two easy appointments.

We offer two types of veneers:

  • Composite Veneers: Composite veneers are a durable tooth-colored material that the dentist applies to each tooth that needs correction. Composite veneers are more affordable than porcelain, though they are more prone to staining.
  • Porcelain Veneers: The dentist applies thin porcelain shells to prepared teeth and cements them in place. They are long-lasting and stain-resistant.
The Veneer Process

Getting veneers begins with a consultation. The dentist will ask you what problems you want to correct and what you expect from the results. The dentist will then help you determine whether composite or porcelain veneers are best in your case.

After deciding on the veneer type, the dentist will take digital impressions to map your teeth in 3-D. The dentist prepares the tooth by removing a thin layer of enamel. They then take another set of digital impressions to help the lab create your veneers.

If you are getting porcelain veneers, the dentist provides a set of temporary veneers to protect your teeth while the lab makes the final product.

After your porcelain veneers return from the lab, the dentist cements them to your teeth. You can begin enjoying your enhanced smile.

Benefits of Veneers

Replaces Multiple Cosmetic Procedures

If you have multiple problems like chipped, stained, or misshapen teeth, veneers can cover all these issues simultaneously. Straightening, repairing, and whitening teeth separately takes more money and time.

Quick Application

Composite veneers (bonding) usually take only one visit, while porcelain veneers take two visits a few weeks apart.


Both types of veneers last for years, though porcelain lasts somewhat longer.


Porcelain veneers have excellent stain-resistant qualities.

Are You a Good Candidate for Veneers?

Most adults are good candidates for veneers, but patients must be willing to invest time and care in their oral health. Composite veneers stain relatively easily, so patients must be careful to keep them clean whenever possible and avoid highly pigmented foods and beverages.

People with bruxism (tooth grinding) may not be the best candidates for veneers since the extra pressure may chip or crack them. If you regularly chew ice, pens, or other non-food objects, you may damage your veneers.

Frequently Asked Questions About Veneers

How long do veneers last?
Porcelain veneers may last 12 years on average though longer in many cases. Composite veneers last for approximately 4 to 8 years.
Do porcelain veneers come off easily?
The dentist will use a special cement to prevent the veneers from falling off. If they do slide off, you should call your dentist immediately to have them put back on. Exposure to the air could irritate the pulp inside your prepared teeth.
What is the difference between a veneer and a crown?
Veneers are thin sheets of material that cover only the forward-facing tooth surfaces. Crowns are caps that completely cover the tooth.
Do veneers cause cavities?
When properly applied and maintained, veneered teeth are no more likely to develop tooth decay than natural teeth.
After my veneers wear out, do I have to have them replaced?
Preparing a tooth for veneers involves removing its natural surface. This factor means that you will have to have the veneers replaced after they have reached the end of their useful lives.
Will veneered teeth be sensitive to hot or cold?
When you initially get veneers, your teeth may be more sensitive for a limited time. Avoid hot and cold foods for a few days after having the veneers placed. Soon you will be able to eat and drink as usual.
