Veneers are a permanent cosmetic procedure. They require a thin layer of enamel to be removed from your teeth before the veneers are bonded to the tooth structure. For this reason, only a trained cosmetic dental expert can make repairs or adjustments to your veneers.
Porcelain veneers typically last 10-15 years before needing to be repaired or replaced. Be sure to keep up with your regular checkups and cleaning to keep your veneers in the best condition possible.
Generally, no, veneers are not a painful procedure. Patients who receive 2-4 veneers experience little to no discomfort during or after placement. However, patients who receive 8-10 veneers may experience some sensitivity or tenderness. Your dentist will take every precaution during your veneer preparation and administer local anesthetic as needed to ensure your comfort.
You can expect getting your porcelain veneers to take 3-4 weeks. You will visit our office 2-3 times over the course of your treatment, from your initial consultation to the final fitting and application.
Our dentists place high-quality veneers made from dental porcelain. This material is chosen for its durability, strength, and lifelike appearance.
