Porcelain veneers provide dramatic smile enhancements in less time!
Ranieu Family Dental prides itself on helping patients discover brilliant new smiles. Dental veneers can dramatically transform a smile by not only correcting chips and discoloration but also the size, length, and rotation of teeth. While it sounds complicated, veneers are a conservative approach in improving the aesthetics of a smile.
Either made from porcelain or resin composite materials, veneers are thin shells made to cover the surface of teeth. They are custom designed to the exact size, shape, and color required to fit into your smile.
While veneers provide a conservative way to repair bad teeth, the steps behind the process require a high level of training to produce accurately. So what’s involved in bringing a smile like this to life?
Your complete smile transformation will be complete within 3 to 4 weeks. First, you will consult with our dentist in Vancouver, WA about your interest in veneers, discuss your smile goals, and create a treatment plan that includes the shape, size, and color goals for your new porcelain veneers. Your porcelain veneers will be colored to perfectly match the rest of your natural teeth or they can be colored to create a brighter smile.
During your first treatment appointment, your dentist will gently reshape the enamel on the front of your tooth or teeth receiving the veneer(s). This ensures the veneers look natural and fit correctly on your teeth. Then, your dentist will take an impression of your teeth. We’ll send this to our preferred dental lab to create your custom-designed veneers. After the impressions are done, your dentist will place temporary veneers on your teeth while your custom designs are being created.
Once the custom veneers have been made and received by our dental office, we will schedule your next appointment. During this time your dentist will ensure the porcelain veneers fit correctly, remove the temporary veneers, then permanently bond the custom veneers to your teeth with expert precision.

How do I care for my porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers provide patients with an instant smile enhancement. You need to care for them just as you would your natural teeth – by brushing and flossing twice per day and maintaining your routine dental check-ups. Other simple maintenance and upkeep will be monitored by our dentists in Vancouver, WA at your visits. Follow these guidelines and your new porcelain veneers will be dazzling for years to come!
Will my porcelain veneers stain?
Veneers are made of a composite resin that doesn’t stain as easily as your natural tooth enamel because it is less porous. But it can still become discolored over time with prolonged exposure to drinks like coffee, tea, or red wine. Smoking and not keeping up with your oral healthcare routine can contribute to porcelain veneer discoloration. If you notice your veneers are becoming discolored, talk to your dentist about options for upgrading. Tooth whitening isn’t an option for veneers because the surface material isn’t the same as tooth enamel.
