Our Porcelain Veneers Process
Getting porcelain veneers is a quick and painless procedure that’s typically completed in two appointments. During your first visit, Dr. Guice will take a detailed impression of your teeth so your veneers can be customized to match their unique appearance. He’ll also gently buff the surface of your teeth to ensure a perfect fit.
In about two weeks, your custom-crafted porcelain veneers will be ready and you can return to our office so Dr. Guice can bond them to your teeth. He’ll do this using a strong dental resin that hardens when it’s activated by a special light.
Dr. Guice will double-check that your porcelain veneers look and fit just right before he solidifies the bond. Once your veneers are in place, your smile will light up the room wherever you go.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is getting porcelain veneers painful?
Porcelain veneers are a minimally-invasive, non-surgical procedure that should result in little to no pain. Dr. Guice will numb your teeth before placing the veneers to ensure you don’t feel anything during the procedure.
You may experience some mild discomfort at first, but this will typically fade within a few hours. Any pain that you do experience should be manageable with over-the-counter medications such as ibuprofen.
How long do porcelain veneers last?
With proper care, porcelain veneers will typically last for about 10 years. If you maintain excellent oral hygiene and visit our Huntersville practice at least twice a year for checkups, they may last even longer -- sometimes up to 20 years.
To help maximize the lifespan of your porcelain veneers, avoid habits that are bad for your teeth such as biting your fingernails or chewing ice cubes.
Will dental insurance cover porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are an elective cosmetic procedure, so most insurance providers won’t cover them. However, you may be able to get a portion of your treatment cost covered in some cases. The amount of payment you receive will vary based on the terms of your specific plan. If you have any questions about your insurance, our team will be happy to assist you.
What if my porcelain veneer falls off or gets damaged?
If your porcelain veneer falls off or gets damaged, don’t attempt to fix or reattach it yourself. This could end up making the issue worse and set your treatment back significantly. Instead, try to keep the veneer clean and out of harm’s way until our Huntersville cosmetic dentist can see you.
How do I take care of my porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers can be maintained just like natural teeth, with daily brushing and flossing. No special tools or cleaning solutions are necessary to keep them clean. As long as you keep up with your oral care at home and visit us for regular checkups, your veneers should last for several years.
Can porcelain veneers fix crooked teeth?
Yes! In many cases, Dr. Guice can use porcelain veneers to help crooked teeth appear straighter. This allows you to achieve a stunning smile without the need for braces or other orthodontic treatments.
If you’d like to correct the appearance of crooked teeth, give us a call at (704) 895-3858 and schedule a consultation at our Huntersville, NC practice. We look forward to helping you achieve your smile goals!
