Dental Veneers FAQs
What is involved in getting porcelain veneers?
Thinking about cosmetic dentistry in Fort Wayne, Indiana and wondering what’s involved with getting veneer teeth? Here’s what to expect:
Before placing veneers, our team must remove a significant portion of enamel to make room for the veneer to sit flush on top of the front sides of your teeth. Once the teeth are prepared, we’ll take impressions of them and send them to an off-site lab where they’ll handcraft your custom veneers. In the meantime, we’ll place temporary veneers on your teeth that will stay on until your next appointment.
When we receive your custom veneers in Fort Wayne, Indiana, you’ll come back into the office and we’ll bond them to your teeth and check the fit. In as little as two to three appointments, you’ll be flashing a new and improved smile!
Custom veneers vs. crowns. What’s the difference?
A custom veneer is made to cover just the front side of a tooth whereas a dental crown completely covers an existing tooth. Porcelain veneers are considered a cosmetic procedure while crowns (though they can also be used for cosmetic reasons) are usually used for restorative needs — such as when a tooth is damaged or weakened by an external factor like decay or dental trauma.
Are dental veneers permanent?
The procedure itself is permanent because it requires enamel removal. However, over time, porcelain veneers are subjected to normal wear and tear just like natural teeth. Because of this, veneers usually must be replaced every 15 to 20 years to look their best. If you maintain a healthy oral hygiene regimen and take care of your veneers properly, however, they may last even longer before needing to be replaced!

"I have seen Dr. Rorick and his staff twice now...and I am pleased and impressed. My teeth are not in the best shape...but guess that what happens when you don't see a dentist for the better part of a decade. The first time was to have a broken tooth (the back molar) removed. Having it removed went painlessly. Everything him and his staff did...I felt pretty much nothing. Second time was for a cleaning and a "treatment plan". At no point did I feel like I was being talked down to or condescended. That was part of the reason I stopped seeing a dentist in the first place. His payment plans and his willingness to take things at his patient's pace as opposed to his own pace just adds to his appeal. Plus...my husband likes Dr. Rorick and his staff and he hates doctors, dentists, nurses and pretty much everyone else in the medical field." - Jessica H
