Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

There are several advantages to porcelain veneers, such as:

  • Natural Appearance: Veneers mimic the natural color and luster of your teeth, providing a natural-looking restoration.
  • Durability: Veneers are strong and durable, providing long-lasting results.
  • Versatility: Veneers restore teeth affected by chips, cracks, stains, or other dental imperfections.
  • Non-Invasive: Veneers require minimal removal of tooth enamel, preserving the natural tooth structure.
  • Cosmetic Enhancement: Veneers can be shade-matched to blend in with the color of the surrounding tooth structure, providing a cosmetic enhancement to your smile.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials that are designed to cover the front surface of teeth, improving their appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth, changing their color, shape, size, or length. Veneers are custom-crafted to fit your teeth and can be used to address a variety of concerns, such as chipped, stained, or misshapen teeth. 

Who Qualifies for Porcelain Veneers?

You may qualify for a new set of veneers if any of the following apply to you:

  • Healthy Teeth and Gums: Candidates for veneers should have healthy teeth and gums, free from decay, gum disease, or other dental issues.
  • Sufficient Tooth Enamel: Candidates should have sufficient tooth enamel to support the veneer material. The veneers require a small amount of tooth enamel to be removed before placement.
  • Dental Imperfections: Candidates should have dental imperfections that can be addressed with veneers, such as chips, cracks, stains, or misshapen teeth.
  • Commitment to Oral Hygiene: Candidates should be committed to maintaining good oral hygiene practices, including regular brushing and flossing, to ensure the longevity of the veneers.

The Porcelain Veneers Process


Before deciding whether porcelain veneers are right for you, your Carson cosmetic dentist will conduct a comprehensive examination of your teeth and gums to ensure proper health, as well as talk with you about your oral hygiene and lifestyle habits to determine if you will benefit from veneers. This will help you and your dentist agree on whether or not veneers are best for you.


To prepare for veneers, Dr. Aluning will remove a small amount of tooth enamel from the front surface of the affected teeth. This is necessary to ensure a proper fit and to create space for the veneer material.


After the teeth are prepared, your dentist will take an impression of your teeth to create a custom mold for the veneers. This mold will be sent to a dental laboratory where your veneers will be crafted.

Veneers Placement

Once the customized veneers are ready, your dentist will carefully place them onto the front surface of your teeth using a special dental adhesive. The dental veneers will be adjusted and polished to ensure a natural-looking and comfortable fit.

Porcelain Veneers Aftercare

Here are some ways you can keep your dental veneers looking and feeling their best for years:

  • Maintain Good Oral Hygiene: Brush and floss regularly to keep your veneered teeth clean and free from plaque buildup.
  • Avoid Staining Agents: Minimize consumption of foods and drinks that can stain teeth, such as coffee, tea, and red wine. If you do consume these substances, rinse your mouth with water afterward to minimize staining.
  • Protect Your Veneered Teeth: Avoid biting on hard objects or using your teeth as tools to prevent damage to the veneer material.
  • Regular Dental Check-ups: Schedule regular dental appointments with Carson Dental Care to monitor the condition of your veneered teeth and ensure their longevity.
