Porcelain Veneers.

Veneers are a fast and safe way to rejuvenate your smile. They re-sculpt, recolor, and strengthen the teeth.

It’s a thin shell that covers the front surface of a tooth to improve the appearance of discoloration, shape, length, spacing, damage, or wear. Remember the blocky, fake, overly-white Hollywood smiles of a few decades past? Unfortunately, that’s what comes to mind when most of us think of veneered teeth. But today’s improved porcelain materials and technologies ensure beautiful, natural-looking teeth.

No one will know you have veneers – they’ll only notice your gorgeous smile.


How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last?

With proper care, porcelain veneers can last between 10 to 15 years. Their lifespan depends on factors such as oral hygiene practices, lifestyle habits, and regular dental check-ups.  Maintaining veneers is similar to caring for your natural teeth. Regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups are essential. Avoiding teeth grinding and wearing a protective guard during sports or while sleeping can help prolong their life.

Are Porcelain Veneers Right for Me?

Porcelain veneers are suitable for individuals looking to improve their smile’s aesthetic. Ideal candidates are those with healthy gums and teeth, looking to correct issues like minor misalignments, gaps, or discoloration. Your natural teeth remain largely intact beneath the veneers. A small amount of enamel is removed to accommodate the veneer, but the overall structure and health of the tooth are maintained. A consultation with our dental professionals can help determine if veneers are the best option for you.

Benefits of Veneers:

Porcelain veneers offer a transformative solution for enhancing your smile, addressing a variety of dental imperfections such as discoloration, chips, gaps, and misalignment. Veneers have numerous advantages, including: 

  • Aesthetic Improvement: Porcelain veneers offer a significant transformation in your smile, correcting issues like discoloration, chips, gaps, and misalignment.
  • Stain Resistance: Porcelain is less prone to staining compared to natural teeth, helping your smile stay brighter for longer.
  • Durability and Strength: Made from high-quality materials, these veneers are strong and resilient, closely mimicking the strength of natural tooth enamel.
  • Minimal Tooth Alteration: Unlike other cosmetic procedures, veneers require minimal alteration of the natural tooth, preserving more of your natural tooth structure.
  • Customization: Veneers are highly customizable in terms of shape, size, and color, ensuring they blend seamlessly with your natural teeth for a natural-looking smile.
  • Fast and Efficient Procedure: The entire process of getting veneers is relatively quick and efficient, making it a convenient option for those seeking cosmetic improvements.
  • Improved Oral Health: By covering damaged or weakened teeth, veneers can help protect against further deterioration and improve overall oral health.
  • Long-Term Solution: Offering a balance of aesthetics and functionality, porcelain veneers are a long-term solution for enhancing your smile.

Our Procedure.

At Garden State Dental Design, the procedure is simple, the outcome is predictable, and we'll help you keep your veneers looking great for a long time.


We start with a thorough evaluation including impressions, photos, models, bite records, x-rays, and an examination to be sure the gums and teeth are healthy. An appropriate relationship between the bite and jaw is crucial to the longevity of veneers.


The doctor takes the time to understand exactly what you want to accomplish: your concerns and your cosmetic goals; to custom-design a smile for you.


Prototype veneers (replicas of the permanent ones) are made and tried on to allow you to “test drive” your new smile before starting treatment. We make minor shaping and placement adjustments, as desired, and you wear them for a few days to get feedback from friends and family during this trial period.


With your approval on the design, teeth are shaped by removing damaged or unsightly enamel: this process can take as little as two to three hours depending on the number of teeth being treated, and final impressions are taken.


Our in-house ceramist makes your individual, permanent, porcelain veneers within ten days of final impressions. At your delivery appointment, the porcelain veneers are bonded to your teeth; this attachment is, in most cases, as strong as the bond of natural enamel to dentin.


You’ll return for final polishing and finishing several weeks later. We recommend hygiene visits every three months and specific home care regimens (brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash) to ensure your porcelain veneers continue looking like new. We encourage the use of a bite guard at night to protect your veneers from wear.
