Enhancing Smiles with Veneers: What You Need to Know

Veneers are very thin, semi-translucent covers that your dentist crafts just for you and places precisely on the visible surface of the tooth you want to enhance. Using veneers, you can change the color, size, and shape of one or more teeth. Veneers are the fastest way to achieve smile perfection. In just a few short visits, you can have a perfectly aligned, stunningly gorgeous smile with veneers.  

Everything You Need to Know About Veneers


Veneers can fix a wide variety of issues, such as:

  • Permanently stained or discolored teeth
  • Short teeth
  • Misshapen or pointy teeth
  • Uneven teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Slightly crooked teeth  

Tailored aesthetics

Dental veneers give you a chance to create your own vision of the perfect smile, with the help of advanced dental technology and a highly skilled dentist. Because they are not a one-size-fits-all solution to imperfect teeth, dental veneers make your smile uniquely yours.  

Lasting beauty

Natural tooth enamel tends to dull and even lose its original shade over time. Tooth enamel is porous, which means it contains thousands of tiny holes. Stain-causing agents, such as food and beverages, seep into these holes to discolor the natural tooth enamel.  

Carefully crafted from high-grade porcelain, veneers remain white and bright for years. Because the surface is non-porous, veneers can resist even the strongest stain-makers.

Quick procedure

Dental veneers can improve your smile in just days, whereas teeth straightening and other cosmetic dental procedures can take weeks or months.  


The dental veneer procedure doesn’t hurt, and wearing dental veneers is very comfortable.


Dental veneers are more natural-looking than ever before. In fact, people won’t notice that you are wearing them, but they will notice that your smile looks better than ever.  


Porcelain veneers are strong and sturdy enough to last 10 to 20 years, with proper care and precautions. Using a soft toothbrush, brush your teeth twice a day; floss your teeth once daily.  

You can protect your dental veneers from damage by:

  • Never chewing on hard objects, such as fingernails, pens, or ice
  • Using scissors, not your teeth, to open packages
  • Not chewing hard foods with the treated tooth; use your back teeth instead
  • If you grind or clench your teeth (especially at night), wear a mouth guard
  • If you play contact sports or engage in activities in which you may suffer trauma to your face, wear a mouth guard

While dental veneers are more resistant to stains than is natural enamel, it is still prone to stains. To keep your veneers looking bright and white, avoid eating or drinking stain-causing foods and beverages, such as wine and berries.

Types of dental veneers

There are several types of dental veneers. Porcelain is the most common material used in dental veneers, and it is the most durable. Composite resin is another common type of veneer – it involves covering the tooth with a resin and then shaping the bonding material to create a tooth-like shell.  

Veneers Treatment Overview

Getting veneers is easier than you might think and requires just a few steps:

  • Create an impression – your dentist uses advanced technology to create an image of the tooth to be treated
  • Determine the shape and color of your dental veneers
  • Short wait – it won’t take long to make your veneers (dental labs can usually make them in a week or so)
  • Evaluate the fit, color, and shape of the veneer to make sure it is perfect for you
  • Tooth trimming – your dentist will remove a small amount of tooth enamel to create enough room for the dental veneer; they also roughen the surface of the enamel to help the veneer stick to tooth
  • Bond the veneer to the tooth with dental cement; harden the cement with an ultraviolet light
  • Smile!
