Our team is proud to offer custom porcelain veneers to patients of all walks of life, designed to restore your smile quickly, while offering beautiful results, a natural appearance and full function of your teeth.

Are Veneers a Good Option for Me?

If you’re looking for a more conservative approach to improve your smile, veneers may be a good option. Veneers require a minimal amount of tooth preparation, and provide the great results patients want.

With two types available, porcelain and composite, veneers offer an alternative to crowns and implants. Porcelain veneers are the more expensive option; longer lasting and more stain resistant. Composite resin veneers are an affordable way to restore your teeth to their natural beauty.

Veneers are not a good option for people who grind their teeth, especially at night, heavily filled teeth, or limited enamel on the tooth in question.

How Are Porcelain Veneers Applied?

In order to create a custom, natural fit, we’ll begin the process by meeting with you to determine the “look” you’d like to achieve, while checking the appropriateness of your teeth for veneers and obtaining the best color matches.

Next, we’ll lightly sand the enamel on the teeth to be fitted with veneers to maintain the same tooth thickness. Then, we take an impression of your teeth, so the veneers can be shaped for a perfect fit, with the correct color and shape. While your new “teeth” are being made, we may place temporary veneers on your teeth until the permanent ones are ready.

At the next visit, we will have you approve the color and shape of your new veneers prior to cementing them. Your teeth will be cleaned with a mild acidic solution, and then a tooth-colored bonding adhesive is applied along with the veneers to cement them into place. The veneers are then buffed to blend in with your other teeth.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are custom-fitted “shells” that are applied and bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth. They are used to cosmetically correct teeth that are

  • Crooked
  • Misshapen
  • Gapped
  • Chipped
  • Stained
  • Cracked
  • Worn

The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

As a conservative dental approach to cover teeth imperfections and fill in any gaps, porcelain veneers are an ideal choice because

  • Very little of the actual tooth enamel is removed
  • They provide a natural-looking alternative, which is less expensive than crowns
  • They are strong and stain-resistant
  • With proper care, they can last 10-15 years
  • The procedure produces very little pain or discomfort
