What Can Porcelain Veneers Address?
Porcelain veneers offer an extensive range of benefits for patients who want to improve the appearance of their smile. With porcelain veneers, you can address many common cosmetic dental concerns and achieve a natural-looking result. For instance, veneers can help create a more symmetrical smile for patients with tough stains that are impervious to professional tooth whitening. In addition, veneers can also address issues such as chips, fractures, uneven teeth, crooked teeth, and damaged teeth.
Veneers are thin, ceramic shells that are permanently bonded to the front and sides of your teeth to create a seamless smile. Dental grade ceramic closely mimics the appearance of the natural teeth, making it one of the most ideal materials for natural-looking veneers. At Stein Center for Advanced Dentistry, we strive for dental excellence, so we only use the highest quality materials and state of the art dental technology to craft high-quality veneers.

What To Expect During The Porcelain Veneers Process at our Dentistry
If porcelain veneers are right for you, your treatment will begin with an in-depth dental examination. During your examination, Dr. Weiss or Dr. Stein will determine if any treatment is needed to restore health to your smile. In all cases, dental issues such as periodontal disease or tooth decay will need to be addressed before any cosmetic treatment.
Next, we will take high-quality digital impressions and shade analysis of your teeth to aid in the fabrication of your custom veneers. The impressions are sent to a high-end dental lab, where a master ceramist will craft your veneers. During the fabrication process, Dr. Stein or Dr. Weiss will gently file your natural teeth in order to create an adequate bonding surface for your new veneers.
Due to the amount of preparation needed to support dental veneers, they are considered a permanent restoration. With proper care and excellent oral hygiene, custom porcelain veneers can last many years.
Porcelain Veneers FAQs
Do teeth decay under veneers?
It is possible for teeth to decay under veneers. Cavities can form behind veneers resulting in tooth decay. This may threaten your oral health, and can shorten the lifespan of your veneers.
Do porcelain veneers break easily?
Porcelain veneers do not break easily. They are very durable and are considered to be slightly stronger than natural teeth. Veneers can break or crack so it is still important to be careful with them.
Do veneers stay white?
A proper diet and a good oral care routine helps veneers stay white longer. On average they remain white for about 10 years before needing replacing. Coffee, red wine, and any deeply colored foods or drinks are more likely to stain your veneers.
