Veneers Before & After
What to Expect with Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are most often used to cover discolorations and imperfections, such as cracks, gaps, and crookedness. Veneers can aesthetically change the size, color, and shape of your teeth, making them an effective alternative to crowns on the front teeth. Often, Dr. Holloway can mount the veneers using little or no anesthesia, making it a safer and quicker procedure. Best of all, once you have the veneers, they will last for years and are not affected by things like coffee, tea, and cigarettes. Veneer procedures are two-fold. To prepare your teeth, Doc will first remove about half a millimeter of the natural enamel, which allows for the thickness of the veneer to adhere comfortably. Next, Dr. Holloway will take a mold of your teeth. These models are sent to a lab where a skilled technician will fabricate your custom veneers based on the goals you and Doc have agreed on for your unique smile and needs. After about a week at the lab, your veneers will come back to Floss and your appointment will be set to have the veneers permanently bond to the natural teeth.

How do veneers work?
Crafted from solid dental porcelain, porcelain veneers are shaped and bonded to cover your existing front teeth to remove flaws such as deep stains, cracks, gaps and crookedness. Traditional porcelain veneers are customized to look like your natural teeth by fitting the size, shape, and color of your smile goals so that you achieve a gorgeous, natural appearance.
What do porcelain veneers cost?
Each set of veneers is specifically designed for that individual patient. During your consultation appointment, Doc will discuss your goals, evaluate your mouth, and create a complete treatment plan for enhancing your smile. Once the treatment plan is created, we will be able to give you cost options and discuss payment plans.
Can I remove the veneers at a later date?
Custom veneers are a permanent solution because Doc will remove a thin layer of enamel to prepare your teeth for the porcelain veneers. If you would like to discuss other more temporary or reversible solutions, Dr. Holloway-Kleidosty will provide you with those options at your consultative appointment.
Why can't I just whiten my teeth instead?
In some cases, professional teeth whitening can brighten your smile and revive your appearance. When you have gaps, permanent stains, or chips, bleaching your teeth won't fix the issues. Porcelain veneers literally cover the teeth and create a straight, attractive smile.
How long does it take to get veneers?
Most of the time, patients complete the whole process in four to six weeks. During this time, you will have an initial exam, take impressions for the veneers, and return for final placement.
