To place veneers, we must remove a thin layer of your enamel. This helps the veneers fit properly over the top of your teeth and look natural.
This does mean, however, that once the teeth are prepared, the process is not reversible. Dental enamel will not replace itself, and you will need to keep veneers in place to prevent sensitivity and keep your teeth healthy and looking great.
This is one of the reasons why we take our time to work with you and create a treatment plan that is right for your needs. Veneers are an investment in your smile, your appearance, and your self-confidence. We'll take all the time necessary to design beautiful veneers that are customized to complement the shape of your smile, your bone structure, and even your own skin tone. We want you to be absolutely thrilled with the end result.
With good home care habits, veneers can last as long as 10 years, but eventually they will need to be replaced. Veneers are stain-resistant and durable, but like your natural teeth, they can eventually wear down. When the time comes to replace your veneers, we will again develop a new set to make sure your veneers look natural and age appropriate.
