Will My New Veneers Look Fake?

One of the things people considering veneers struggle with is whether their new smile will look unmistakably fake. There is a clear distinction between a beautiful natural-looking smile and something that looks paid for and inauthentic, and people generally prefer the former. So, will veneers look fake?


Like any elective or cosmetic procedure, people spend a considerable amount of time weighing their options before deciding if that thing is right for them. Veneers are no different. Some popular questions asked include:

  • What will I look like with veneers? 
  • Would they look big and flashy, unnaturally white, or fake? 
  • Can they look natural? 

Patients who come in for consultations ask these questions all the time. Different shades, sizes, and options are available for mouths of all types, so talk to Dr. Wallace about your goals.

What Problems Do They Solve?

Porcelain veneers are one of the most versatile cosmetic dentistry procedures in practice because they affect multiple smile features at once. In addition to being the most sought after restorative, cosmetic option for teeth, veneers can solve combinations of the following issues:

  • Discoloration
  • Chips
  • Teeth size
  • Unattractive shapes
  • Crookedness

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are a thin layer of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of teeth. One of the major drawbacks to relying on organic enamel is its proclivity to the dying qualities of coffee, tea, and wine. For comparison, these ultra-thin layers are virtually undetectable and highly stain-resistant. Veneers are also incredibly strong due to the nature of porcelain as long as they are properly cared for.

Life After Veneers

What kind of life can people considering veneers look forward to after their procedure with Dr. Wallace?

  • Resolution of issues such as chipped teeth, discoloration, uneven tooth sizes, and crooked teeth.
  • Patients can achieve fast results. Unlike teeth whitening or other restorative options that take time to show results, porcelain veneers can be placed in less than a month over the course of two office visits spaced one to two weeks apart. 
  • Teeth that haven’t responded to traditional whitening treatments are covered up. 
  • Porcelain veneers look like natural teeth! Experts craft porcelain veneers to resemble and function like natural teeth. Dr. Wallace will ensure that the shade for your new set of veneers looks natural.
