About Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth-shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile.

Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and transform your smile. They can often be alternatives to bondings and sometimes to crowns.

As with most dental restorations, veneers are not permanent and may someday need replacement. They are very durable and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long lasting smile.

Reasons for porcelain veneers:

  • Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile.
  • Crooked teeth.
  • Misshapen teeth.
  • Severely discolored or stained teeth.
  • Teeth that are too small or large.
  • Unwanted or uneven spaces.
  • Worn or chipped teeth.

What Should I Expect After Porcelain Veneers Are Installed?

Since getting porcelain veneers typically does not require anesthesia, you should be able to resume your daily tasks after your appointment. You might experience sensitivity to hot and cold food for a few days, but that should subside naturally. Veneers should be cared for like your natural teeth with daily brushing and flossing. While porcelain veneers are stain-resistant compared to the natural enamel, you should still avoid staining drinks and food to keep your smile white. To prevent harming your veneers, you shouldn't chew on hard objects, such as your fingernails or ice. You should continue to go to dental examinations and cleanings at Gardens Cosmetic and Family Dentistry so we can track the condition of your porcelain veneers, teeth, gums, and overall oral health. Dr. Ryan Martz or a team member will let you know if your veneers need to be replaced or repaired.

Porcelain Veneers FAQ

How long do porcelain veneers last?

Porcelain veneers are known for their durability and longevity. With the right care and maintenance, they can last anywhere from 10 – 15 years, or even longer in some cases. Regular dental exams and cleanings at Gardens Cosmetic and Family Dentistry coupled with good oral hygiene practices are essential to extend the lifespan of your veneers.

Do porcelain veneers stain?

One of the advantages of porcelain veneers provided at our Las Vegas, NV practice is their resistance to staining. Unlike natural teeth, porcelain is not porous, making it less susceptible to discoloration from coffee, tea, or tobacco use. However, it is still essential to maintain good oral hygiene and avoid excessive consumption of foods that stain in order to keep your veneers looking their best.

Do porcelain veneers hurt?

Getting porcelain veneers at Gardens Cosmetic and Family Dentistry is typically not painful. During the procedure, a small amount of enamel may be removed from the tooth's surface to accommodate the veneer. Local anesthesia is often used to ensure your comfort during this step. After the veneers are bonded to your teeth, you may experience some mild sensitivity, but this should subside within a few days.
