Do you have crooked, discolored, or damaged teeth? Try porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin, semi-transparent porcelain ceramic shells that we bond to the front of the tooth enamel. They easily change the shape, color, and size of teeth. Dental veneers are cosmetic dental solutions that improve the appearance of the smile.

Our team will work with you to determine how many veneers you require as well as where they are needed in the mouth.

Porcelain Veneers in Rehoboth Beach, DE
To begin treatment with porcelain veneers, we clean and prepare the teeth. In order to prepare each tooth for a veneer, we etch into the outer layer of the tooth. Then, we take impressions of the prepped teeth. We use these impressions to fabricate the custom-made veneers. The veneers are made to exact specifications to match the shade and shape of natural teeth.
Once the veneers are complete, we apply a resin to the teeth, place the veneers, and then set the veneers in place with a curing light. After we set the veneers, we finally clean and polish them for a natural look.
Porcelain Veneer FAQs
Learn more about veneers with frequently asked questions about this cosmetic treatment below:
What are the differences between porcelain veneers and teeth bonding treatment?
Porcelain veneers offer a more permanent solution than tooth bonding treatment. Dental bonding is best for quick fixes for single-stained teeth or chips in the tooth enamel. Veneers can cover the whole smile and create a brighter and more even look. Although dental bonding is more economical, veneers last for many more years and can fully restore the smile.
Can I whiten my dental veneers?
No, like other cosmetic or restorative treatments, you cannot whiten your veneers. Dental veneers are made of porcelain ceramic or composite materials that are not affected by whitening treatments. However, we can prepare a new restoration if you have old discolored veneers. Contact our office for a consultation.
Do dental veneers damage the natural teeth?
No, porcelain veneers do not damage natural teeth. Although we will need to prepare the enamel for veneers, this does not permanently damage the teeth.
How long do dental veneers last?
Dental veneers can last patients 15 to 30 years. Because of this, we recommend dental veneers to patients who are committed to their cosmetic treatment. Over time, patients may need to replace veneers that have become discolored over time. However, regular dental care and dental visits can keep veneers bright. Therefore, we recommend that patients continue to brush and floss regularly and visit our office twice a year.
