What issues to porcelain veneers correct?

Dental veneers, which are wafer-thin pieces of porcelain designed to fit over the front of your teeth, can be used to correct teeth that are:

  • Slightly misaligned or worn
  • Have gaps and spaces in between them
  • Chipped or fractured
  • Stained or spotted
  • Irregularly shaped
  • Too short, pointed, or long

How are porcelain dental veneers applied?

You will typically need two appointments for your veneers to be applied. During the first appointment, Dr. Terteryan will examine your teeth to ensure no other issues need to be corrected before your veneers are applied. Then he will thoroughly clean your teeth and remove a minute layer of tooth enamel to make room for your veneer.

He will take a mold of your teeth, which is used by his dental lab to manufacture your custom veneer. You’ll be fitted with a temporary veneer while your permanent veneer is made. At your second appointment, Dr. Terteryan and his team will attach the permanent veneer to your smile, check your bite, and buff the veneer until it shines like a natural tooth.

How long will porcelain dental veneers last?

With proper care, porcelain veneers typically last for 10-15 years, while composite veneers usually last for 5-7 years. You’ll need to brush and floss daily and attend regular dental appointments. Your veneers won’t decay, but your natural teeth still need attention and care to ensure their longevity and health.
