Yes, veneers are considered a permanent procedure. They need a thin layer of enamel to be removed from your teeth prior to placement and are bonded to the remaining tooth structure. For this reason, only a trained dental professional can make repairs or adjustments to your veneers, otherwise you could damage your teeth.
The lifespan of your veneer depends on the type you choose, and your veneers will eventually need to be repaired or replaced just like any other dental work. A set of porcelain veneers typically lasts 15 years or more, which is why we provide this option to our patients looking for lasting results.
Generally, no. Veneers are a minimally invasive treatment option and doesn’t cause pain. Patients who receive 2-4 veneers typically experience no discomfort during their treatment experience. However, patients who receive eight or more veneers may experience some sensitivity or tenderness in their gums following their procedure. Your dentist will administer local anesthetic or sedation as needed to ensure your comfort.
On average, you can expect the process of getting your veneers to take 3-4 weeks. You’ll visit our office 2-3 times during this time, from your initial consultation to the final fitting and application.
Dr. Lesuer offers high-quality porcelain veneers. Porcelain is chosen for its strength, durability, and lifelike appearance. It closely matches the natural qualities of enamel to ensure a beautiful smile makeover.
