Most people tend to think that porcelain veneers represent a cosmetic procedure that is reserved for the wealthy or famous. In reality, however, the procedure is incredibly commonplace, in part because it is both highly effective and efficient—not to mention increasingly affordable—at treating everything from tooth abnormalities to tooth discoloration. At the office of Dr. Jacqueline Subka DDS, APC, we want to highlight this procedure by presenting commonly asked questions about veneers. Our goal is to enlighten our patients about this highly achievable cosmetic dental option.


The Whats and Whys of the Process

Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin, tooth-colored material that is designed to be placed over the surface of the teeth. Each veneer is custom made to be bonded to the front of the tooth and completely changes the appearance, color, shape, size, and length of the tooth. Here are more particulars of the procedure:

  • They are designed to replace worn enamel, uneven teeth, permanent stains, and teeth that are dissimilar in color and contour.
  • They resist stains better than other types of veneers and appear more natural because they mimic the way light reflects off of the surface of teeth.
  • You are able to eat and drink foods and beverages as normal; however, overly acidic foods and beverages such as tomatoes and wine should be avoided.
  • They typically last between 7 and 10 years.
