Nothing is as frustrating as having cracked, crooked, and discolored teeth. Not only do they affect your appearance and confidence, but they also impact your oral health. At Bella Smiles Cosmetic and family dentistry, we understand the importance of a smile makeover and that’s why we offer a variety of cosmetic dental options including porcelain veneers.
These hard, thin, and wafer-like shells are bonded to your tooth enamel to mask a variety of teeth imperfections such as gaps, cracks, chips, and discoloration. These veneers are designed to mimic your natural teeth in shape and appearance, and best of all they are stain-resistant.

Are porcelain veneers effective? They are if done by a qualified and experienced dentist. At Bella Smiles, we fix the dental veneers with precision to ensure they are durable. You generally need two or three dental visits based on your dental health.
The first visit involves planning and diagnosis. Dr. Gibson will explain and discuss with you the goals of the treatment, what to expect, and the limitations. She will do an x-ray and get an impression of your teeth and mouth. Additionally, she will remove a small portion of the enamel to make room for the veneers. Due to the trimming of the tooth, you may get a local anesthetic to prevent sensitivity.
The model of your tooth is then sent to the laboratory and it may take two to three weeks for the dentist to get the veneers back. A temporary veneer is used to protect your teeth as you wait.
During this visit, Dr. Gibson will bond the veneers using special cement, and she will then activate the chemicals in the cement using light beams to hasten the hardening process.
A follow-up visit is required after a few weeks to monitor check how the gums respond to the veneers.
Porcelain veneers last between seven and 15 years after which they will need to be replaced.
Although dental veneers don’t require special care, you still need to maintain good oral hygiene to promote the durability of the veneers.
The cost of dental veneers differs depending on the extent of the procedure and the number of teeth that need to be fixed. However, they range from $1,000 to 2,000 per tooth.
