Why do people get veneers?
A, B and C : Veneers can be used to treat a number of different cosmetic concerns, including chipped, broken, discoloured, or smaller-than-average teeth. Some people may only get one veneer in the case of a broken or chipped tooth, but many get between six to eight veneers to create an even, symmetrical smile. The top front eight teeth are the most commonly applied veneers.

How many veneers do I need?
None : This varies from person to person depending on the condition of your teeth and smile goals. You may only need a couple to fix minor cosmetic issues or you may decide to get them on most of your teeth. The most common choice is what’s called the social six, the teeth you see when you smile. For some people who have broad smiles, it’s actually eight top teeth, rather than six.

Are veneers permanent?
A Yes and….B No : Yes and no. Once you have veneers, you will need to maintain them because your enamel has been removed in order for the veneer to be replaced. Most veneers last between 10 and 15 years before needing replaced. You can maximize the life of your veneers by practicing good oral health habits, just like you would for your natural teeth. Have a good hygiene routine, address any tooth grinding issues, use mouthguards when playing sports, and don’t use your teeth as a tool (please, no opening things with your teeth!).

Do veneers stain?
B No : No, veneers do not stain because the material isn’t porous like tooth enamel which absorbs stains. If you feel like your natural teeth no longer match the shade of your veneers, then there are a couple of possible reasons for this. If your veneers are darker than your natural teeth, then it’s likely your veneers were created for you many years ago when veneers were made with a more porous material than modern veneers, in which case you should consider replacing them. Or perhaps your natural teeth are darker or more yellow than your veneers. This certainly happens with natural teeth. In order to keep your teeth bright, avoid teeth staining drinks like coffee, tea, and red wine. You should care for your veneers just as you would your natural teeth, by brushing twice daily with an electric toothbrush, flossing once daily and visiting us twice yearly for professional cleanings.
If you need your natural teeth whitened to more closely match your veneers, we would be happy to assist you with that as well.

Do I have to shave down my teeth?
NO - No. Your dentist will only need to prepare your tooth by trimming half a millimeter or less of tooth enamel. This is done so the special bonding agent has a better surface to adhere to and your porcelain veneer is more stable. With the bonding agent applied to your tooth, our cosmetic dentist will place the veneer then use a special light to quickly cement the veneer to your tooth.
