Porcelain Veneers Q & A

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are medical-grade ceramic shells that your dentist bonds to the fronts of your teeth. At Core Smiles, the team uses veneers to conceal a range of cosmetic imperfections, including:

  • Cracks and minor breaks
  • Chipped teeth
  • Intrinsic dental staining
  • Minor misalignment
  • Small gaps between teeth

Get in touch to find out if porcelain veneers are right for you. 

Am I a good candidate for porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers may be right for you if you have:

  • Good oral health
  • Good oral hygiene habits
  • Specific cosmetic or restorative goals
  • A sufficient amount of healthy enamel

Your dentist at Core Smiles must treat any conditions such as gum disease before placing your veneers. If veneers aren’t suitable for you, they can recommend other cosmetic procedures that can help you achieve your desired results.

Julie didn’t like her smile. She didn’t want to consider Invisalign or orthodontic treatment and wanted to improve her smile with porcelain veneers.



We used Digital Smile Design technology to virtually design Julie’s new smile. Through an advanced 3d printing process, we were able to deliver 12 porcelain veneers that integrated beautifully with Julie’s face.



Anne recently turned 50 and was unhappy with the appearance of her teeth. For years, she complained about grinding her teeth down.



We placed 10 porcelain veneers to restore Julie’s teeth back to their natural length.

What happens during the veneers procedure?

During your initial consultation, your provider evaluates your oral health and takes X-rays, photos, and dental impressions. You discuss your cosmetic goals, and they make recommendations for the type of veneers that may work best for you.

The team at Core Smiles uses a safe and gentle procedure to remove a thin layer of tooth enamel to make space for your veneers to fit flush against your teeth.

Then, your provider takes highly detailed impressions of your teeth. They send your impressions to a trusted partner lab, where your porcelain veneers are custom-made to fit your teeth. 

Traditional porcelain veneers can take up to two weeks to create, so they provide temporary veneers to protect your teeth while your permanent restorations are made.

Once your veneers are ready, you have your second appointment. Your provider ensures your veneers fit your smile, preserving your natural bite and alignment before bonding them to your teeth.

What are the benefits of porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers provide a variety of significant benefits. Modern porcelain veneers look natural and lifelike. You don’t need to take any time off to recover, and your veneers can last for up to 10 years with proper care. Veneers are also easy to care for — you simply brush and floss them, just like your natural teeth.
