Porcelain Veneers

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin shell-like restorations that are made to cover up small imperfections on the front of your teeth. Despite being thin and comfortable to wear, veneers can withstand a lot of force and pressure, and it’s not uncommon for them to last for at least a decade. Veneers are made to mimic the look and feel of your natural teeth so that no one will know you’re wearing them but you. Veneers can even save you money from having to have more invasive procedures done to correct cosmetic problems.

Why would you need Porcelain Veneers?

You may need or want veneers because you’re ready to transform your entire smile. If you feel badly about your smile and want to change it without undergoing a lot of invasive work, veneers are a great choice for you. Some of the reasons you may want to have veneers placed include:

  • You have discolored and heavily stained teeth
  • Your teeth have spaces and large gaps between them
  • Your teeth are not uniform and look uneven
  • Your front teeth have small cracks and chips in them
  • You want a full, beautiful and white smile

What are the benefits of Porcelain Veneers?

One of the key benefits to choosing porcelain veneers is that they require little to no anesthesia to place. The procedure is done quickly and comfortably, so you’ll be away from the office and enjoying your new smile in no time. Veneers are incredibly resilient and last a lot longer than people may think. Veneers are custom-made for each individual patient to create a natural-looking aesthetic.

What can you expect during the procedure for Porcelain Veneers?

You will first come in and have an examination and consultation prior to the procedure. This will help us to determine what you’re looking to achieve with the help of new veneers. Next, the very fronts of all of your teeth will be gently filed down to make adequate room for the veneer work and to improve the actual adhesion. Impressions are taken by our staff and sent to a dental laboratory where the veneers themselves are custom made for your unique smile. The next step will be to have the veneer work placed, which does not take much time. They are fully adjusted to give the appearance of a naturally gorgeous look.
