Porcelain Veneers: FAQ

Would you believe that veneers have been around since the 1920s?! They debuted in Hollywood, no surprise, but porcelain veneers have come a long way from the red carpet and are surprisingly more common and more natural looking today than you might suspect.

Between the 1920s and the 1950s, regular people outside of Hollywood started getting veneers to help improve the look of their smile. The veneers we think of today came about sometime around the 1980s, as veneers became more affordable and easier to place with bonding agents that allowed dentists to make them more permanent and even more attractive.

Today’s options for dental veneers include traditional and no-preparation veneers. If you select the traditional route, Dr. Damaris Browning will shave off enamel from the tooth or teeth receiving the veneer, then take an impression of your slightly shaved tooth so the veneer can be crafted to fit your tooth exactly. Though it will take around three weeks for your veneer to be ready once Dr. Browning sends out the impression, there are temporary veneer options you can wear in the meantime, so you don’t have to worry about an unsightly, “shaved” smile while you wait for your custom veneer. No-prep veneers are fitted directly over your existing smile and do not require any shaving of your natural teeth.

Today’s veneers can last anywhere between 10 and 30 years and can be the solution to the smile you’ve always dreamed of. Dr. Browning takes time and cares to craft a smile that will match the shape and style of your natural teeth to give you a smile that looks almost perfect and totally real.
