Common Questions and Answers About Veneers

Question: What are veneers?

Answer: Porcelain veneers are shells crafted to look like a natural tooth, which fit permanently over the visible portions of your teeth to improve your smile’s appearance.

Question: What are they made out of?

Answers: Veneers are made out of extremely thin, translucent layers of porcelain.

Question: Will they look natural?

Answer: Yes. Similar to the way that your teeth are made up of many translucent tissue layers, these ceramic shells are engineered to create the same appearance for a natural finish.

Question: How long with the treatment take?

Answer: You will visit us twice. During your first visit, we will remove a very minimal portion of your tooth’s outermost layer, called enamel, for a wonderful fit with your porcelain veneers. We will also take impressions. During your follow-up visit, we will bond the veneers to your teeth and your makeover will be complete.
