Porcelain Veneer FAQs

Are you interested in porcelain veneers, but have questions about treatment? Discover more about veneers with answers to these common questions:

What are the benefits of dental veneers?

Porcelain veneers:

  • Blend in with the natural smile
  • Brighten discolored teeth
  • Straighten the look of slightly crooked teeth
  • Add structure to injured teeth
  • Last for many years

Please let Dr. Stevens know if you would like to receive veneers and he will create a custom treatment plan for you.

How do veneers compare to dental bonding?

Although porcelain veneers and dental bonding treatment are similar, there are several main differences between the cosmetic treatments. Dental veneers offer a longer-lasting cosmetic treatment. Because dental veneers cover the front of teeth, they are best used for larger areas of discoloration or damage. Dental bonding is more often recommended for patients with small chips or cracks in the teeth, although it offers a more economical cosmetic option.

Can you whiten porcelain veneers?

No, like other restorative or cosmetic solutions, porcelain ceramic veneers do not respond to whitening treatment. Dental veneers are often used to brighten intrinsic tooth stains. Intrinsic stains are located within the teeth and are often caused by a dental injury. These types of stains also cannot be treated by professional whitening treatment but may be covered by veneers. If you have old dental veneers that have become discolored, we can provide you with a new set of veneers.
