Five Benefits of Dental Veneers
Instant Smile Improvement
This cosmetic procedure can instantly hide most physical flaws on compromised teeth. Often, veneers can conceal more than one imperfection on a single tooth.
Veneers provided by our Vancouver, BC, practice can enhance teeth affected by stains that don't respond to professional whitening.
With proper brushing and flossing, our top-grade porcelain veneers can protect and improve the look of your teeth for 15 years or longer. It is best not to bite into ice, objects like pens, or hard foods with your veneers.
Our dentists are highly trained in designing customized veneers made from porcelain to blend in seamlessly with the shade, shape, and size of your existing teeth.
A healthy-looking smile after veneers are placed can give you more confidence in social and professional situations. After all, your smile is the first thing people notice about you.
The Veneers Placement Procedure
- This virtually painless procedure usually takes two appointments once you've had your comprehensive oral exam with one of our dentists at Norris Dental.
- First, a special tool will be used to remove a very small amount of enamel from your affected tooth or teeth. This allows the veneer to lay flush with surrounding teeth and look natural. You may not need local anesthesia but it is available for your comfort.
- Then, your dentist will take precise digital impressions of your smile, which will be sent to an outside lab where dental artisans will craft your customized veneers.
- After about two weeks, you will return to our Vancouver practice. Your dentist will make sure they look and fit perfectly before permanently bonding them in place. Now you can show the world your brand new smile!
You may be an excellent candidate for porcelain veneers if you:
- Have sufficient tooth enamel
- Do not grind your teeth
- Are free of gum disease or tooth decay
- Have only minor gaps or misalignment
Consider a Complete Smile Makeover
If you have multiple cosmetic goals, a smile makeover can give you comprehensive results. This custom combination of cosmetic treatments can upgrade every dimension of your smile.

Your dentist can examine your teeth to determine the best course of treatment to fit your unique needs and goals.
Does Dental Veneer Placement Hurt?
Because we use local anesthesia, and because veneers only require a small amount of enamel to be removed, placement is virtually painless. If you feel any pain, please inform your dentist so they can address any discomfort immediately.
Dental Veneer Maintenance
Caring for your veneers is easy:
Brush your teeth at least twice a day, floss at least once each day, and visit your dentist for your regular exams and cleanings.
Though the porcelain is durable, limit or avoid especially sticky or hard foods such as caramel or ice.
To prevent damage to your new smile, it is best to bite hard foods like raw vegetables and tough meats with teeth that do not have a veneer. This simply ensures that your porcelain is not damaged or pulled from the tooth.
With proper care, your veneers can last for 15 years or longer.
Cost of Veneers
Because veneers are considered cosmetic, insurance providers will not cover this treatment. The cost will vary depending on the number of veneers you need to achieve your cosmetic goals, and whether you need preparatory treatments before your veneers can be placed. During your consultation, your dentist will develop a treatment plan, and we can then provide an accurate cost estimate.
Are Veneers Permanent?
Yes. However, it is important to remember that porcelain will wear over time. This makes your veneers more likely to chip, crack, or sustain other damage. Eventually, your porcelain veneer will need to be replaced. Because your tooth has been altered to accommodate the veneer, it will always require some sort of restoration.
