Porcelain Veneers: A Reason To Smile Again
Think it’s impossible to fix one or more of these issues without braces/crowns/lengthy dental treatments? It isn’t! Porcelain veneers and Lumineers are two cosmetic dentistry treatments that can INSTANTLY eliminate imperfections. In fact, they’re so effective that they’re often referred to as INSTANT ORTHODONTICS!
Porcelain Veneers: What They Are And How They Can Help
Porcelain veneers are perhaps the most durable solution available for fixing chipped, cracked, unattractively shaped, or discolored teeth. Made of a glass-ceramic material, porcelain veneers have been experimentally proven to resist breaking, wear, and staining under most usage conditions. In fact, with proper care, porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years!
With porcelain veneers, there’s no need to change your eating habits! In addition to being incredibly durable, porcelain veneers are unaffected by temperature changes in your mouth.
Porcelain veneers look just like natural teeth. Unlike many other synthetic options, that are totally opaque, porcelain veneers mimic the faintly translucent appearance of real teeth.
Caring For Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers will eventually break, that’s an unavoidable fact. Still, there are ways to ensure that your veneers have a long, helpful life.
- Proper dental hygiene: There’s still a natural tooth underneath your veneers, so make sure you take care of your mouth. That includes brushing two times a day, flossing daily, eating fresh, natural foods, and avoiding sugars that rot teeth.
- Cut down on coffee and tea, which can stain the veneers. After drinking these beverages, brush your teeth!

Two Visits to Smile Success
You’re busy and, let’s face it, not interested in braces or spending hours in the dentist’s chair. Porcelain veneers are the ideal solution for your smile makeover. Together, you and Dr. Gershberg decide on a design that addresses your concerns – stains, gaps, crowding, chips, breaks, and other flaws can disappear. Your veneers are handcrafted from very thin wafers of porcelain and placed in a second dental appointment. See the results some of our patients have achieved with this miraculous dental treatment!
Are you interested in achieving a beautiful, lasting impression with minimal changes made to your natural teeth? Lumineers are relatively new restorations that only require moderate etching to fit over your existing smile instead of the shaving that is often done to accommodate traditional veneers. Additionally, they are thinner than traditional porcelain veneers, and can last up to twenty years if cared for properly. However, not every patient is a viable candidate for Lumineers. Be sure to talk to Dr. Gershberg and our team about whether porcelain veneers or Lumineers are the right choice for you!
