Veneers: An Amazing Option to Revamp Your Smile

Have you ever looked at a celebrity and wondered how they have such perfect teeth? Well, more often than not, the answer is dental veneers.

Veneers can mask oral imperfections and make your smile look better in less time and without any complex procedures.

At AV Dental Wellness Group in Lancaster, California, our dentist has helped change the smile and life of many patients using veneers. Keep reading to learn more about dental veneers and their benefits.

What Are Dental Veneers?

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells attached to the front surface of your teeth that enhance your smile’s appearance. They are made from porcelain or resin composite materials.

Veneers are used in the treatment of several cosmetic dental concerns such as broken or chipped teeth, misaligned teeth, stained or discolored teeth, and tooth gaps. 

At AV Dental Wellness Group, we offer patients four types of veneers:

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers resemble natural teeth in color and shape and are the strongest and most durable of all options.

Composite Veneers

Composite veneers are a more affordable alternative to porcelain veneers but aren’t as durable.


Lumineers are made of ultra-thin porcelain laminates and require the least amount of time for preparation and application. However, they don’t last as long as porcelain veneers.

Removable Veneers

As the name suggests, these veneers are removable. They are also a significantly cheaper alternative. Custom clip-on veneers and instant veneers are the two types of removable veneers available.

What Are the Advantages of Veneers?

Let’s take a look at a few advantages of dental veneers:

  • They are stain-resistant.
  • They resemble natural teeth.
  • They can brighten your teeth, and in effect, your smile.
  • They don’t require as much shaping as crowns but are durable.

Things to Know About Veneers

Here are a few things you should know about veneers:

  • The veneer procedure is irreversible.
  • Veneers last between 7 to 15 years. You may need to replace them after that period.
  • Veneers are stain-resistant, but you need to minimize drinking coffee, tea, and sauces to maintain their brightness.
  • Veneers may not be a good option for people who excessively grind or clench their teeth.
