Dental Veneers FAQs
Answered by our cosmetic dentist.
- Do veneers ruin your teeth?
No. Although before the treatment, your dentist must remove some enamel from your teeth, so your new smile will appear natural. Then, we’ll bond the veneers to the front of your teeth with an adhesive.
This means this procedure is irreversible. But we’ll strive to preserve as much healthy tooth structure as possible.
- Does it hurt to get veneers?
Patients typically report no pain or discomfort during the procedure.
After the procedure, you may experience some tenderness. You can alleviate it with over-the-counter medicines like Ibuprofen.
- Are porcelain veneers worth it?
Porcelain veneers are an excellent option if you wish to improve your smile and self-esteem. It’s an investment in your appearance, dental health, and quality of life.
- How long do porcelain veneers last?
Porcelain veneers can last 25 years or longer with proper care and maintenance!
You can preserve your veneers’ longevity by:
- Flossing at least once a day
- Brushing twice daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste
- Going to your biannual dental appointments
- Avoiding extremely hard foods like ice and certain candies
- Avoiding tobacco products
- Do porcelain veneers stain?
Because porcelain is a non-porous material, your veneers won’t absorb stains easily.
Your natural teeth under the veneers will still stain, per usual. And over time, your veneers may show some signs of discoloration.
We recommend you avoid or minimize your consumption of highly-pigmented foods or beverages, such as:
- Red wine
- Marinara sauce
- Dark-colored berries
- Soy sauce
