What makes veneers such a great option?
Veneers Are Custom-Made to Enhance the Overall Look of Your Smile
Incredibly Natural-Looking ResultsVeneers are made from medical-grade porcelain that closely replicates the shine, texture, and color of your natural teeth. Each porcelain veneer is customized to your unique features to deliver the most subtle, yet transformative, results.
Comprehensive CoveragePorcelain veneers are one of the only cosmetic procedures that can address multiple concerns at once. Whether you have stains, chips, gaps, or a combination of several imperfections, veneers can provide complete coverage in a single treatment.
Long-Lasting OutcomesThanks to advancements in dentistry, porcelain is becoming increasingly strong and durable. With proper care, many veneers can last up to a decade before needing to be replaced.
Comparing Veneers vs. Dental Bonding
One of the most commonly used alternatives to porcelain veneers is dental bonding.
Although dental bonding is reversible and more cost-effective, it does not offer the same strength, long-term results, or lifelike outcomes as veneers. If these benefits are important to you, then veneers are a worthwhile investment.

To Qualify for Veneers, You Should...
Have Healthy EnamelTo make room for your veneers, your doctor will need to remove some of your enamel. Therefore, you should have a sufficient amount of enamel if you are considering veneers. If you have thinning enamel, you may still be a good candidate for LUMINEERS®.
Free from Teeth Grinding
Although porcelain veneers are very strong, they are not indestructible. If you grind your teeth excessively, it can increase the risk of fracturing your restorations. In some cases, an oral appliance can help.
Have Correctable IssuesVeneers can treat a wide range of cosmetic concerns. But if you suffer from pronounced misalignment or severely crooked or gapped teeth, you might be a better candidate for other treatments such as braces.
Maintain Realistic Expectations
Veneers are considered a permanent investment and will need to be replaced at some point in the future. You should have realistic expectations about how long they can last before needing replacement.
