Porcelain & Non-Invasive
If you want to transform your smile into a work of art, porcelain and non-invasive veneers are just right for you. Our dentists at Dental Artistry are highly skilled in the art of cosmetic dentistry, and we're passionate about helping our patients achieve their dream smiles.
Porcelain and non-invasive veneers are excellent options for those looking to enhance the appearance of their teeth without undergoing extensive dental work. Veneers are thin, custom-made shells placed over your teeth to improve their shape, size, and color.
What Do Porcelain And Non-Invasive Veneers Correct?
What’s The Difference Between These Two Types Of Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin, durable shells made from high-quality dental porcelain. They're custom-made to match the shape, size, and color of your existing teeth, and are bonded to the front of your teeth to create a beautiful, natural-looking smile. Porcelain veneers are a great option for patients looking for a long-lasting, low-maintenance solution to their cosmetic dental issues.
Non-invasive veneers, also known as composite veneers, are a great alternative to porcelain veneers for patients looking for a more affordable and less invasive option. Non-invasive veneers are made from a tooth-colored composite resin that is applied directly to your teeth and shaped to improve their appearance. This option is perfect for patients who want to improve the appearance of their teeth without undergoing extensive dental work.
Did you know that porcelain and non-invasive veneers were first invented in hollywood in the 1920s as a way for actors to transform their smiles for film roles quickly? Today, they've become a popular option for anyone looking to enhance their smile and boost their confidence!

Q: How long do porcelain veneers last?
A: Porcelain veneers can last up to 10-15 years with proper care and maintenance. It's essential to practice good oral hygiene, avoid biting hard objects, and visit your dentist regularly to ensure the longevity of your veneers.
Q: Can non-invasive veneers be removed?
A: Yes, non-invasive veneers can be removed if necessary. However, it's important to note that removing them may cause some damage to the natural tooth structure, and a new veneer or restoration may be needed.
Q: Will getting veneers hurt?
A: The process of getting veneers is typically painless. Your dentist will numb the area with a local anesthetic before removing a small amount of tooth enamel (for porcelain veneers) or placing the veneer (for non-invasive veneers). You may experience some sensitivity or discomfort after the procedure, but this can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.
Q: Can I eat and drink normally with veneers?
A: Yes, you can eat and drink normally with veneers. However, it's important to avoid biting hard objects (like ice or hard candy) and to limit the consumption of foods and drinks that can stain the veneers (like coffee, tea, and red wine).
CARING FOR PORCELAIN AND NON-INVASIVE VENEERS
We always say that porcelain and non-invasive veneers should be cleaned with a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Avoid abrasive cleaning products, as they can damage the surface of the veneer. Flossing is essential to remove food particles and plaque between teeth. Use caution around the edges of porcelain veneers to prevent them from chipping or breaking.
Regular polishing helps keep porcelain and non-invasive veneers looking bright and beautiful for years. Specialized polishers are available that have been formulated specifically for these restorations. They provide mild abrasives to gently polish away stains without harming the underlying structure of the restoration itself.
It's essential to protect your veneers from further staining by avoiding certain foods such as red wine, coffee, tea, and berries, which can all cause discoloration over time if not properly removed from surfaces regularly. We also recommend that patients wear a mouth guard when playing sports or engaging in activities where their teeth could become injured due to impact or contact with hard objects like balls or elbows during play.
No matter which option you choose, our team at Dental Artistry will work closely with you to ensure that your veneers are perfectly customized to your unique smile. Our goal is to provide you with a natural-looking, beautiful smile that you'll be proud to show off.
