Veneers are a permanent cosmetic procedure. They need a thin layer of enamel to be removed from your teeth prior to placement and are bonded to the remaining tooth structure. For this reason, only a trained dental professional can make repairs or adjustments to your veneers.
The lifespan of your veneer depends on the type you choose, and your veneers will eventually need to be repaired or replaced just like any other dental work. Composite resin veneers typically last 5-7 years while porcelain veneers will last 10-15 years. Lumineers have a similar lifespan to porcelain veneers with good at-home care and regular cleanings.
Lumineers and composite veneers are the most pain-free way to receive veneers as they require little to no tooth preparation. While porcelain veneers do require some tooth preparation, they are very comfortable to have bonded to your teeth. Dr. Fine will take every precaution during your veneer preparation and administer local anesthetic as needed to ensure your comfort.

On average, patients can expect the process of getting porcelain veneers to take 3-4 weeks. You will visit our office 2-3 times during this time, from your initial consultation to the final fitting and application. Composite veneers are sculpted directly onto the surfaces of your teeth rather than being created in a lab and bonded to the surfaces of your teeth. Lumineers can typically be placed in 1-2 visits because they require virtually no tooth preparation.
Choose between custom porcelain, chairside composite, and “no-prep” veneers (Lumineers). These cosmetic restorations allow us to dramatically transform your smile’s entire appearance.
