Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers consist of thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the front and top surfaces of the teeth.

They are used to provide protection for teeth that are chipped, crooked, dark or badly stained and to fill gaps between the teeth. Although they are very thin, once bonded they are incredibly strong. They are gaining in popularity because they dramatically improve a smile in a very short period of time.

When bonded to the teeth, porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and are resistant to coffee, tea, and cigarette stains. For appearance and durability, their resemblance to healthy white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by any other dental restoration.

How Strong Are They?

With proper care, porcelain veneers can last a decade or more. Dr. Frey is very particular about ensuring that your veneers are created from the highest quality porcelain materials and bonded with the most advanced and proven adhesives available. Once bonded, porcelain veneers are generally as strong as the original tooth.

However, you will need to do your part as well to ensure your porcelain veneers last a long time. Keep in mind that your teeth should only be used to bite down on or tear through food. Chewing on ice, fingernails, or holding foreign objects between the teeth can create forces that can chip both natural teeth and porcelain veneers. If Dr. Frey suspects you have a clenching or grinding habit, he may recommend that you be fitted with a nightguard to protect both your veneers and your natural teeth from fracture or excessive wear.

Dr. Frey has been my dentist for years. He replaced eight of my front upper teeth with beautiful crowns! He is a committed professional that will honestly advise you on procedures you need, or more unusual, the procedures you don't or can delay. His staff is knowledgeable and friendly!
