Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Getting porcelain veneers is minimally invasive.
Dental veneers are less invasive than other cosmetic dental procedures. Your dentist will only need to cut away half a millimetre from the front surface of your teeth - much less than a crown would require. The procedure requires little or no anesthesia, and the high-quality, long-lasting results are immediately visible after the veneers are applied.
Veneers are long-lasting and durable.
Veneers are durable and they resist decay and staining better than natural teeth. This is due to their non-porous nature. Porcelain veneers will last between 10 and 15 years if maintained properly.
Maintaining dental veneers is easy.
Maintaining dental veneers is the same as caring for your natural teeth. Floss at least once a day and brush twice each day. We also advise that you see your dentist for regular checkups and cleanings. Following these simple tips, you can maintain your beautiful smile for years.

FAQ's About Porcelain Veneers
Patients who have the following dental concerns are indicated for porcelain veneers.
- You have cracked, chipped, or broken teeth.
Chipped, cracked, or crooked teeth can be treated in a few ways and having dental veneers is one of them. Your doctor may recommend a porcelain veneer depending on the severity of the crack, chip, or break. A veneer can be customized to match the rest of your healthy teeth, restoring your smile.
- Your teeth are extremely stained or discoloured, and whitening products won’t work.
Over-the-counter whitening products are not effective for everyone, especially for those who have heavily stained teeth. If you want a whiter, more uniform smile, you can have veneers fabricated in the shade of your choice.
- You have misaligned teeth.
Gaps between teeth and misaligned teeth are common among many people. Many feel embarrassed or ashamed to laugh or smile with them. Veneers can close small gaps and camouflage teeth that are slightly misaligned.
- You have teeth that are uneven or irregularly shaped.
Veneers can be fabricated to match the natural teeth’ size, shape and shade, making veneers a good treatment for minor cosmetic issues.
While all three of these beverages can cause staining on natural teeth, porcelain veneers are much more resistant to staining. This is because the porcelain used to make veneers is non-porous, meaning it does not absorb colour like tooth enamel. However, it is still possible for porcelain veneers to become stained over time, especially if they are not properly cared for.
To help prevent staining, it is important to brush and floss regularly and to avoid using abrasive toothpaste or whitening products. If you drink tea, coffee, or wine, rinse your mouth with water afterwards. Taking these simple precautions can help keep your porcelain veneers looking their best for years to come.
If your porcelain veneer falls off, place it in a container and return it to the dentist. You should not attempt to put back the porcelain veneer without a dentist’s help. When permanent veneers are placed without professional assistance, they may chip further.
It is essential not to delay the recementation or replacement of porcelain veneers. Doing so will increase the risk of your teeth being exposed to plaque and bacteria that can damage them.
The cost of porcelain veneers varies depending on several factors, including the number of veneers you need, the complexity of your case, the city you live in, and the experience of your dentist. In general, you can expect to pay between $1900-$2300 per veneer. However, if you need multiple veneers or if your case is particularly complex, the cost could be higher.
Some insurance plans will cover the cost of porcelain veneers if they are considered medically necessary. However, most insurance plans will not cover the cost of porcelain veneers if they are purely cosmetic. If you are considering getting porcelain veneers, it is important to consult with
