What Are Veneers?
Veneers are made from thin pieces of durable, high-quality porcelain and bonded to your front teeth to erase common flaws like those listed above. In most cases, a full veneers procedure can be completed in as few as two visits. One of the most significant advantages of this cosmetic service is that it can address multiple imperfections at once, such as staining, discoloration, gaps, cracks, chips, and even misalignment. What’s more, you can enjoy your new and improved smile for well over a decade with proper care and maintenance.
The Process of Getting Veneers
First, you’ll have a consultation with our team at Murphy Family Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry to determine whether or not this cosmetic solution is right for you. Once we’ve confirmed you’re a good candidate for veneers, you’ll be scheduled for the first phase of treatment.
During your initial appointment, Dr. Najari or Dr. Nguyen will prep your smile by removing a small amount of enamel from your front teeth. This will ensure that your veneers lay flat and look natural. You'll wear a temporary set of veneers while our lab is crafting your permanent veneers.
When your custom-made veneers are ready, you'll return to our dental office to have them permanently attached. Once they’re bonded to your teeth, you’ll be ready to show off your beautiful new smile that same day!

If you’re looking to enhance your pearly whites, veneers are an excellent option for transforming your entire smile. However, they are quite an investment, so it pays to be well-informed. Here are the answers to some of the most common questions we receive about veneers in Murphy. If you don’t see the information that you’re looking for below, give us a call. We’d be happy to answer your questions and get you started with an initial consultation.
Are Veneers Permanent?
Veneers aren’t technically permanent because they will eventually need to be replaced. However, they are considered to be irreversible. To ensure that veneers fit properly on the teeth, small amounts of enamel need to be filed away, and removed enamel will not grow back. For this reason, teeth that have been prepared in this way will always need to be covered with crowns or veneers to keep them safe.
Can Veneers Be Used for Bite Corrections?
Veneers do not change the actual position of the teeth or jaw, so their effectiveness for treating bite issues will vary on how severe the problem is. If you have a mild open bite, veneers can make the teeth appear longer and wider so that they look like they line up. Veneers can also be used to hide small gaps between the teeth. Veneers will only be recommended for misalignment that doesn’t cause oral health problems but affects your appearance.
How Many Veneers Will I Need?
The goal of veneers is for all of your visible teeth to match. Ultimately, you will receive the appropriate number to accomplish this goal. Some patients opt for a single veneer to cover one tooth while others get anywhere from 6 to 12 for a more complete smile makeover. During your consultation with us, we will discuss what the right number is to achieve the goals you have for your smile.
Do Veneers Feel Like Real Teeth?
Many patients report that properly placed veneers feel completely natural once they are placed. They don’t even notice them when eating or speaking. Veneers are carefully crafted to fit perfectly on your teeth based on impressions made after a small amount of enamel has been removed. The enamel removal prevents the restoration from protruding uncomfortably and appearing to be bulky. The porcelain material used is very smooth and will not irritate the soft tissues inside your mouth either.
