Porcelain Veneers: What you need to know

Porcelain veneers are wafer thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving the look of your smile. Veneers are an excellent cosmetic solution for teeth that have been chipped, stained, or misaligned.

Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. At Mount Olive Smiles Mount Olive Family Dentistry, Dr. Kimes ensures that your veneers are crafted of the highest quality and is dedicated to give you a great new smile.

Will they look like normal teeth?

When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, red wine, tea, or even cigarette stains. Because the porcelain veneer covers the surface of the tooth, the surface is extremely smooth and impervious, meaning the veneer will not pick up permanent stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options.

How durable are porcelain veneers?

With proper care, brushing and flossing daily, porcelain veneers will brighten your smile for well over a decade. Refraining from using your veneers as tools to open and cut things will prolong their life, and if accidental breakage or damage occurs, it is usually possible to replace only the veneer involved.
