Veneers Q & A

What is a dental veneer?

Veneers are ultra-thin and custom-made porcelain shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth. They protect the surface of your teeth and improve the aesthetics of your smile.

The simplicity and versatility of veneers make them one of the most popular ways to improve your smile; however, successful placement and correctly matching it to the color of your natural teeth demand a high degree of technical skill as well as keen attention to cosmetic detail.

Dr. Porsch has nearly 30 years of experience placing veneers and takes great pride in ensuring you receive the highest quality care when it comes to improving your smile.

How do veneers work?

It’s common to have a chipped, cracked, stained, or uneven tooth over the course of your life. Veneers offer a relatively simple solution to correct these problems in a way that look and feel natural, protect your teeth, and can restore your smile.

First, Dr. Porsch removes a small amount of enamel from your tooth so once he attaches the veneer, it looks and feels natural. Then, he makes an impression of the prepared tooth and determines the best color and shade to match your other teeth.

Once the dental lab finishes making a veneer to your personal specifications, Dr. Porsch places the custom veneer to ensure it fits well and looks beautiful. Next, he cleans your teeth and bonds the veneer to your tooth.

Will my veneers be like my normal teeth?

Because Dr. Porsch uses the highest quality materials and because of his experience and technical skill in placing veneers, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are almost invisible. Your tooth will look healthy and strong, and your smile will be restored, and no one will be able to tell you had work done.

How long do veneers last?

Veneers can brighten your smile for more than a decade. They’re even highly resistant to staining from coffee, tea, and tobacco, through proper care and regular hygiene are recommended to prolong their lifespan. In the event damage does occur, Dr. Porsch can usually just replace the veneer itself.
