Veneers FAQs

Question: Porcelain veneers will make my teeth look whiter but what else will they do?

Answer: Veneers may provide the work of a variety of other individual treatments, by offering the following: They will gently cover the visible part of your teeth to camouflage cracks, chips, and texture problems like pitting. Veneers will also give you the opportunity to enjoy improved tooth size, shape, and length, while filling gaps between teeth for a truly uniform, gorgeous smile.

Question: Am I going to have to be really careful about the foods that I eat?

Answer: No. One of the most exciting benefits of veneers is their stain resistance. You can continue indulging in your favorite meals without worrying about the long-term results of pigmentation. Red wine and coffee? Not a problem.

Question: What about their ability to withstand chewing? I hear that they are prone to breakage.

Answer: This is one of those common myths that can cause patients to miss out on the advantages of porcelain veneers. They are, in fact, almost as strong as your natural teeth. This means you can expect a long life out of your new smile.
