Can I still get cavities with porcelain veneers?
Yes, you can. With the veneers, you do have to keep them clean at all times, as it is possible to get a cavity in the space between the teeth and the veneers. Because the tooth under the veneer is still a regular tooth, you must maintain your veneers as if they were actual teeth. We always recommend regular oral hygiene practices including brushing and flossing at least twice a day. Maintaining optimal oral health will help prolong the life of your veneers and your natural teeth.
How durable are veneers?
Porcelain veneers are made to last for years and many patients have had their veneers last much longer with proper care and maintenance. The veneers that our office typically utilizes in our work with patients come with a warranty of approximately five years, but as I stated, veneers can last longer depending on how well you care for them. Veneers are quite stain-resistant. After several years, your veneers may begin to develop minor stains, but generally speaking they maintain their structure and color for some time.

Can I get veneers to match the shade of my current teeth?
If you do not place veneers on every tooth, it can be a bit of a challenge to match the color of the other teeth, but this is something we can easily manage. What we have found is that we can often match veneers to our patients’ teeth on site with little or no problem. In less typical cases, we send the patient to our nearby lab, where the technicians can create a custom color match to ensure the patient is completely satisfied with the end-result.
How much do porcelain veneers cost?
The cost of porcelain veneers in Buffalo ranges among dentists. Our office charges around $950 a veneer which many patients are surprised to learn is quite low in comparison to other offices in the area. If a patient chooses Lumineers, a more cosmetic option, the charge is closer to $1,050 per veneer. However, since this option is longer-lasting, the higher cost is often justified by the longer lasting duration. Porcelain veneers are sometimes covered by insurance and that is certainly something we would be happy to look into for you.
