Veneers are thin, custom-designed porcelain coverings that are adhered to the front surfaces of teeth to enhance smile appearance. Because they require minimal tooth preparation, they are often used to make cosmetic changes to otherwise healthy teeth, such as closing gaps, or to restore contour and shape to worn teeth to create a more youthful appearance. They are the ideal solution for minor smile imperfections such as stained, chipped, slightly rotated or overlapped teeth. We can usually complete your veneers in as little as two visits.
The artistic beauty of porcelain makes it the perfect restorative material for dentistry – we combine multiple shades in the veneer fabrication process to achieve the luster and translucency of natural teeth. This highly polished, long-lasting material is resistant to staining from food and beverages so you always have a gorgeous, bright smile!
Porcelain Crowns and Veneers are often combined to complete a “smile makeover”. Your smile design begins with a thorough examination of the teeth and gums to determine your smile shape, size, symmetry and overall oral health.
We work closely with you to create just the right look – we may use a wax replica of your smile so we can view your design together and make decisions. Our doctors then convey detailed instructions to dental laboratory technicians to fabricate your custom restorations and arrive at the best appearance, fit, bite and speech function.
