What Are Veneers?
Veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells placed atop your natural teeth, covering cosmetic imperfections. Dr. Flax customizes your veneers to match your teeth color, shape, and size, allowing them to blend seamlessly into your smile.
Using porcelain veneers for your smile makeover can help perfect the following cosmetic dentistry problems:
- Discolored or stained teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Misshapen or missized teeth
- Broken, cracked, or chipped teeth
- Misaligned teeth
Traditional teeth veneers are about 0.5 mm thick and require a very tiny portion of the tooth to be removed before placement to ensure a seamless transition.
Ultra-thin, minimal-prep veneers are often as thin as 0.3 mm. We can place this type of veneer with minimal or sometimes no tooth preparation at all.

The Veneers Process: From Consultation to Transformation
The journey to your dream smile begins with a consultation at Flax Dental. During this initial appointment, our skilled professionals will assess your oral health, discuss your smile goals, and determine if porcelain veneers are the right choice for you.
Once you and Dr. Flax have determined veneers are right for you, a small amount of enamel is gently removed from the surface of your teeth to create space. Don’t worry — this step is painless and ensures a snug fit.
If you opted for minimal-prep veneers, you may not need this step. We’ll then take precise impressions of your teeth to create custom veneers that fit your unique dental anatomy.
While your permanent veneers are in fabrication at the dental lab, you’ll receive temporary veneers to protect your teeth and give you a preview of your new smile.
Once your custom veneers are ready, they are bonded to your teeth using a strong adhesive. Dr. Flax and his team meticulously ensure proper fit and alignment for a seamless result.
He’ll make any necessary adjustments to guarantee comfort and satisfaction before you leave our office with a dazzling, confident smile.
Caring For Your Veneers

- Brush Gently: Use a soft toothbrush and gentle toothpaste to brush your teeth twice daily.
- Floss Regularly: Clean between your teeth daily using floss, including around your veneers.

Are porcelain veneers suitable for everyone?
Yes, porcelain veneers are a suitable, versatile option for many seeking smile enhancement. However, a consultation with dental professionals is necessary to determine if you’re an ideal candidate.
How long do porcelain veneers last?
