Porcelain Veneers: What to Expect
Learn if you are a candidate for porcelain veneers by scheduling an appointment with Dr. Brock Hyder at Payette Dental. Patients who have extensive tooth decay or suffer from chronic bruxism, or tooth grinding, may find other treatments to be more effective. Before treatment, Dr. Hyder will assess your oral health and review your budget and goals.
Porcelain veneers are made of thin shells of dental ceramic. These shells are reflective and color-matched to teeth for a natural look. Dr. Hyder will prepare the tooth by removing a small amount of the tooth structure. He will then take molds of teeth for the permanent veneers. When finished, the permanent porcelain veneers are applied to the front of the tooth and bonded. Porcelain veneers can last 5 to 10 years with the proper care. You can brush and floss veneers twice a day just like natural teeth.

Porcelain Veneers FAQs
Can porcelain veneers fall off?
It’s very rare for porcelain veneers to fall off on their own. However, veneers may occasionally chip or crack. Your dentist can remove the veneer and replace it with a new one.
Will my porcelain veneers feel normal?
A brief adjustment period will be needed to get used to your new veneers. You may have some sensitivity in your teeth as well. In about two weeks, you’ll be able to talk and eat normally with your restoration.
When will my porcelain veneers need to be replaced?
It all depends on how well you take care of them. With proper maintenance, veneers usually last around 10-15 years.
