How can dental veneers help my smile?
Thanks to their design, dental veneers can change the shape, height, width and color of your teeth. A single veneer can cover imperfections on one tooth or your dentist can use a veneer on every visible tooth to completely overhaul your smile. Veneers’ porcelain materials greatly resemble natural teeth and blend in with your smile to provide the most natural look possible. Dentists use veneers in many situations, including to repair:
- cracked teeth
- chipped teeth
- discolored or yellowed teeth
- uneven teeth
- small gaps
- small overlaps
Are dental veneers permanent?
Veneers are a permanent porcelain dental restoration and made to last upwards of 20 years before requiring replacement. Since veneers require preparation of the tooth, the procedure is considered irreversible. The preparation stage of veneers involves removing a thin layer of enamel from the surface of the tooth to help the veneer bond to the tooth and to make room for its width.

Your veneers will look and function like natural teeth. Also similar to natural teeth, your veneers will require a strong at-home dental care routine to help them remain strong, healthy and clean and lengthen their lifetime. Luckily, caring for your veneers is as easy as caring for your natural teeth. Dentists recommend brushing twice a day using a soft brush. Use a back-and-forth motion to brush the front and back of each tooth. Additionally, floss at least once daily between each tooth, remembering to include the back of your last molar. Coupled with regular bi-annual dental examinations and cleanings, your at-home oral care routine will keep your natural teeth and veneers healthy for many years to come.
