Porcelain Veneers: FAQ

At Jordan Dentistry in Cumming, GA, we offer a number of general and cosmetic dentistry services, including porcelain veneers. We get a lot of questions about this particular service; here’s a list of the most frequently asked questions!

  • What are Veneers? Porcelain veneers are thin, light porcelain shells that cover the front of teeth to improve their appearance.
  • How Long Does It Take? Generally the process takes three appointments: a consultation and fitting, an appointment to place the veneers, and a follow-up. The whole thing should take about two-three weeks, depending on a number of factors. Veneers
  • Will They Match my Teeth? Yes! We will carefully color-match your teeth as part of the process. Many patients have their veneers made several shades lighter, and then have whitening done on their natural teeth to match. Talk to Dr. Jordan about all your options. And remember, porcelain veneers should never stain.
  • Will They Fall Off? Porcelain veneers are strongly bonded and should not fall off, but if they do, see your dentist immediately for repair or reattachment.
  • How Long Do They Last? With proper care, veneers can last anywhere from seven to 20 years. Brush and floss daily as you normally would, with a nonabrasive, ADA approved-toothpaste, and continue to see your dentist every six months so they can check for any signs of trouble.
  • Will My Insurance Cover Veneers? That depends. Some insurance plans do cover a portion of veneer services up to 50%; some may even cover more. The friendly, knowledgeable staff at Jordan Dentistry can help you find out!
