Veneers are similar to crowns, except that they cover only the visible front part of the teeth. They can be made of composite resin or porcelain. The composite resin veneer can be installed in one visit only and looks completely natural. The porcelain veneer is installed under local anesthesia; a mold is created to customize the veneer. Two visits are necessary for the final veneer to be installed. Obviously, a temporary veneer will cover the tooth being repaired. Porcelain veneers last longer than composite resin ones and can’t get stained.
We also perform bridges & crowns procedures to improve the aesthetics of your smile.

Typically, a veneer lasts approximately 5-10 years. They do not require any special care other than regular brushing, flossing, and visits to the prosthodontist. If they are properly cared for then they can last much longer. Professional cleanings every 6 months and yearly exams are highly recommended.
The cost of porcelain veneers will vary depending on where you are having them done, and on how many teeth. Schedule a visit with us for a consultation.
This concern will be addressed by your dentist. Most people get their veneers in a whiter shade than their natural teeth and then undergo tooth whitening to create a matching aesthetic.
Yes! You can brush all your teeth the same way. You can floss all the veneered teeth and you should continue your regular hygiene appointments as you have in the past.
