Veneers can be used for both restorative and cosmetic purposes. When one or two teeth have been damaged by decay or dental trauma, veneers can be used to both protect them from further damage and restore their natural appearance. For patients who are interested in undergoing a complete smile makeover, veneers can be placed on all of their front teeth for a beautiful, consistent look.

Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted from a medical-grade ceramic material. They are designed to improve the aesthetics of teeth by covering imperfections such as discoloration, chipping, or irregular shape. Porcelain veneers are highly durable and resistant to stains, making them a popular choice for smile makeovers. The shade and shape of each veneer is carefully chosen to blend seamlessly with the patient’s existing teeth, resulting in a beautiful and natural-looking smile transformation.
What is the process for
receiving dental veneers?
Getting custom veneers placed involves multiple steps. The process begins with an initial consultation where Dr. Alesh assesses the patient’s teeth and discusses their desired outcome. Next, our team prepares the teeth by removing a thin layer of tooth enamel to create adequate space for the veneers. Impressions of the teeth are taken and sent to a dental lab to fabricate custom veneers. During the final appointment, the permanent veneers are bonded to the teeth using dental cement and adjusted for proper fit and appearance.
How long do
dental veneers last?
The longevity of veneers depends on several factors, including the material used, oral hygiene practices, and individual habits. On average, porcelain veneers can last between 10 to 15 years before they need to be modified or replaced. Regular dental check-ups, proper oral care, and preventing the teeth from clenching and grinding together at night can help extend the lifespan of porcelain veneers. Once it’s time to replace your veneers, our team will be glad to assist you.
