What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin shells cemented onto the facial surfaces of your teeth. They are attached using a powerful adhesive and can last for many years. There are many types of veneers, including porcelain, composite, palatal, removable, and Lumineers®.
At Symphony Dental Studio, we offer porcelain veneers to provide patients with durable and beautiful results. Porcelain is a tooth-colored material that closely resembles natural teeth, and resists stains better than other types of veneers. Porcelain is also a strong material and can last longer than composite materials while providing some structural reinforcement to some teeth.
Am I a Candidate for Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a popular option among patients who wish to improve the overall appearance of their smile and correct cosmetic issues. If you wish to improve any of these concerns with your teeth, veneers may be the perfect solution:
Chips or cracks
Stains or discolorations
Worn down tooth enamel
Uneven spaces between teeth
Veneers can also be an alternative to teeth whitening treatment if you want a whiter smile with longer-lasting results.
Porcelain Veneer Treatment
When you visit our office, we will examine your oral health and discuss what you'd like to change about your smile. There are many cosmetic dental services available, and the right one for you will depend on your goals, your dental health, and your budget.
Receiving veneers typically requires two office visits. During the first visit, we will take impressions of your teeth and send them to a lab to create the veneers. To prepare your teeth for veneers, your dentist will remove a small portion of the tooth structure.
There is often no discomfort associated with placing a veneer. Prior to removing some tooth structure, we will numb the area so you can relax comfortably during treatment. After the tooth structure has been removed, we will place a temporary veneer over the teeth. Our team will examine the way it fits and feels so we can make any necessary adjustments to your final veneer.
Once the final veneers are ready, you will return to our office for a second visit. Your dentist will remove the temporary veneer and bond the final porcelain veneer to your teeth using a strong adhesive. We will make any last-minute adjustments as necessary and you will leave our office with a new, stunning smile.

Frequently Asked Questions: Veneers
How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last?
Porcelain veneers can last for 10–20 years with proper care. Brush and floss your veneers just like you would natural teeth, and see your dentist regularly for exams and cleanings. Just like with natural teeth, avoid biting into or chewing on anything very hard to avoid breaking or chipping the material.
What’s the Difference Between Veneers and Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are a restorative treatment that is used to restore strength to damaged or weakened teeth, while veneers are a cosmetic treatment that improves the appearance of teeth. If you have a tooth that is badly damaged or decayed, you may need a crown to restore its shape and prevent further damage. If your teeth are healthy and you'd like to improve the way they look, then veneers are a great option.
Will My Veneers Get Stains?
Porcelain veneers do not stain because porcelain is not porous. Tooth enamel, however, is a porous surface that can become stained from coffee, tea, red wine, and other foods. Composite resin veneers are also porous and can stain or yellow over time. Porcelain veneers are the ideal choice to ensure longer-lasting results.
How Much Do Veneers Cost?
The cost of your veneers will vary depending on the number of teeth you wish to have them placed on. During your visit with us, we will provide you with a cost estimate for your veneers so you know what to expect. Most dental insurance plans do not cover veneers because it is a cosmetic procedure, but we encourage you to contact your insurance provider directly prior to your appointment to find out the details of your coverage. Find out how much your veneers would cost by scheduling an appointment at our San Francisco office.
