What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a strong, durable, and minimally invasive way to achieve a beautiful smile. 


Porcelain veneers, much like composite or ceramic veneers, are tooth-colored shells that are bonded to the front of the teeth. Dr. Koch perfectly matches the veneers to the color of the patient’s existing teeth to ensure a seamless solution that makes the teeth appear straight, restores worn teeth, improves the color, or repairs chipped or cracked teeth simply and easily. 

Porcelain Veneer FAQs

If you’re considering porcelain veneers, it’s likely that you have some questions about the procedure and outcome. Review the most common questions about porcelain veneers below, and be sure to contact our friendly, knowledgeable office staff with any additional questions.

How are porcelain veneers attached to the patient’s teeth?

The preparation process for porcelain veneers depends on the type of porcelain veneers. At Koch Aesthetic Dentistry, we offer minimal prep, or prepless, veneers, as well as porcelain veneers.

Minimal prep or prepless veneers largely retain the structure of the tooth and require only minimal reshaping and light resurfacing before attachment of the veneer. 


Non-minimal prep veneers require Dr. Koch to shave off the top layer, or enamel, of the teeth to receive the veneers. This creates space in the gums and mouth for the veneers to lay on top of the teeth. Once the teeth are prepared for the veneers, Dr. Koch uses a special bonding agent to attach the veneers to the natural teeth. Quickly after, he applies a special curing lamp that hardens the agent, giving the patient minimal downtime following the application procedure.

What are the benefits of porcelain veneers?

There are so many reasons why a patient may choose porcelain veneers instead of an alternative restorative option. A few benefits of porcelain veneers include:


  • The resemblance to the natural tooth enamel
  • Resistance to staining
  • Resistance to decay
  • Easily restore stained, broken, or small gaps between the teeth
  • Simple maintenance
How long do porcelain veneers last?

With proper care and maintenance, our porcelain veneers at Koch Aesthetic Dentistry can last anywhere from twenty to twenty-five years. In most cases, Dr. Koch can replace porcelain veneers if they are no longer in their original pristine condition.

How much do porcelain veneers cost?

The cost of porcelain veneers is dependent upon how many veneers are required to achieve a youthful, beautiful smile. During your smile analysis, Dr. Koch and our friendly office staff provide a comprehensive treatment plan, including costing information, to help the patient determine if porcelain veneers are the best option.
