They Will Be Too White

If you watched the hit ‘90’s sitcom, Friends, then you likely remember the episode where Ross had his teeth professionally whitened to the point that they glowed in the dark. One of the misconceptions that some patients have about dental veneers is that like Ross; their teeth will be so white that they will glow in the dark and make you feel like the next joke on the block. One of the best parts about porcelain dental veneers is that we can match them to your surrounding teeth so that they look more natural.

And although there may be some patients out there who leave their dentist’s office with a mouth full of fake looking teeth, here at our office Dr. Dean Glasser will ensure that your teeth look as real as possible each and every time.

They Don’t Last

Another misconception that some patients have about dental veneers is that they don’t last. However, it is estimated that dental veneers can last anywhere from about 7-20 years depending on the patient and how much wear and tear they place on their teeth.
