Porcelain veneers can transform stained, misshapen, crooked, chipped and otherwise unattractive teeth into the smile of your dreams. Once your veneers have been placed, you will leave our office with your new confident smile for people to see.
Veneers are very thin pieces of durable porcelain that are custom designed for each specific tooth shape and size. The versatility of these veneers mean that they can conceal a wide range of cosmetic dental problems, such as:
- Chipped teeth
- Stained teeth
- Worn teeth edges
- Gaps between teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Uneven tooth size and length
The procedure starts with a custom design of your smile by taking an impression of your teeth. We then design the size, shape, contours and color scheme of each porcelain veneer to best fit your dental and facial features. Once the finished veneers have been created, we carefully fit and adhere each custom porcelain veneer to the facing of each tooth, using a special dental adhesive, under proper isolation. This gives you a completely natural-looking smile, without orthodontics or wire braces. Porcelain veneers can usually be designed, fabricated, and placed in as little as two office visits, and the results are stunning.
Are Porcelain Veneers Right for Me?
The best way to know if you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers is to schedule an appointment with our office. During your initial consultation, we will assess your oral condition and recommend the solutions that can best meet your personal goals. Generally speaking, ideal candidates for porcelain veneers will:
- Be free of gum disease and infections
- Not clench or grind teeth: Although they are durable, porcelain veneers can wear over time. In most cases, we recommend patients wear a nightguard to protect their veneers.
- Practice good oral hygiene
