Natural-Looking Porcelain Veneers
in Portland

If you’d like a way to improve the color, shape, size, and uniformity of your teeth all at once, porcelain veneers are a great option! With dental veneers, you can customize exactly how you would like your smile to look, and our team can work with you to make your new smile appear natural, yet flawless. Veneers are tooth-colored shells that are applied over the teeth after some of the enamel has been removed, and they are considered a permanent cosmetic procedure.

Veneers FAQS

Veneers are far more stain-resistant than natural teeth, but it is possible for them to stain. Natural teeth are more porous than they appear, which means they can absorb things like coffee, dark-colored sodas, and berry juice and become stained over time. Porcelain veneers also cannot absorb teeth whitening products, which is why we always ensure that our patients are satisfied with the color of their veneers before they are placed.
A local anesthetic is always used before veneers are placed so the appointment is comfortable and pain-free. You may feel a little soreness in your teeth and gums after the numbness wears off, but it shouldn’t be anything that over-the-counter pain medication or a warm saltwater solution can’t relieve. Veneers also do not cause tooth sensitivity, as they cover the natural teeth and protect them from heat, cold, and other things that trigger sensitivity.
Dental veneers are not usually covered by insurance, as they are considered cosmetic treatments. If you decide to use veneers for restorative purposes, some dental plans may offer partial coverage. If you have any questions about financing your porcelain veneers, feel free to reach out to our team! We are always happy to help patients find ways to fit the cosmetic services they want into their budgets.
