Never again will you feel the need to hide your smile because of stained, distorted, or gapped teeth. Your smile is meant to be shared with the world. Our goal is to leave our patients with a smile that they are proud of. Porcelain veneers can fix those minor imperfections, with a natural tooth-colored overlay. This is a versatile cosmetic option, bringing your desired smile to life.
Veneers can help you with any of the following imperfections:
- Discolored teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Slight tooth misalignment
- Small teeth gaps
- Irregularly shaped teeth
What are Porcelain Veneers?
A porcelain veneer is a wafer-thin shell made from materials that give it a natural tooth color, making appearance corrections unnoticeable. These shells cover the surface of teeth, adjusting the size or shape of teeth.
Will they look like normal teeth?
When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea, or even cigarette stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options.
How durable are porcelain veneers?
With proper care, porcelain veneers will brighten your smile for well over a decade.
Our doctors will ensure that your veneers are crafted from the highest quality porcelains and are bonded with the most advanced and proven materials available.
Refraining from using your veneers as tools to open and cut things will prolong their life, and if accidental breakage or damage occurs, it is usually possible to replace only the veneer involved.
Veneers- The Process
Your initial appointment with your dentist will include an examination to see if a porcelain veneer is the best option for you, keeping your desires and health in mind. Sometimes an x-ray is needed during this initial appointment.
The tooth in need of the veneer will be cleaned, polished, and roughened up so that it can eventually stick to the veneer. An impression of the tooth is taken to have a customized veneer created.
Once the veneer is ready for placement, it is cemented into place and bonded to your natural tooth.
Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. We place veneers routinely, and design each case individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient’s smile.
