Veneers are a permanent cosmetic procedure. They need a thin layer of enamel to be removed from your teeth prior to placement and are bonded to the remaining tooth structure. For this reason, only a trained dental professional can make repairs or adjustments to your veneers.
The lifespan of your veneer depends on the type you choose, and your veneers will eventually need to be repaired or replaced just like any other dental work. Porcelain veneers typically last 10-15 years with good at-home care and regular cleanings. As long as you treat your veneers with the same care as your natural teeth, you can expect to keep smiling for many years to come.
Generally, no. Patients who receive 2-4 veneers typically experience little to no discomfort after the application procedure. However, patients who receive eight or more veneers may experience some sensitivity or tenderness. Dr. Harvey will take every precaution during your veneer preparation and administer local anesthetic as needed to reduce your discomfort and ensure a relaxing treatment experience.
Veneers are the most effective way to effortlessly solve a wide range of dental imperfections, such as stains, chipped or cracked teeth, gaps between teeth, worn-down enamel, misshapen teeth, and irregularly sized teeth.
Most patients can expect the process of getting porcelain veneers to take 3-4 weeks. You will visit our office 2-3 times during the process, from your initial consultation and tooth preparation to the final fitting and application when your veneers return from the lab.
