Why patients may consider veneers for their teeth

Our team is here to help patients choose the solutions best for their smile, and when imperfections are detracting from an otherwise beautiful look, porcelain veneers are a viable option for many of our patients!

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are custom-made ceramic facings that are created specifically for a patient to bond over the front of an anterior tooth to cover an imperfection. Veneers are used for teeth that are:

  • Permanently stained
  • Misaligned
  • Broken
  • Spaced
  • Unusually shaped

Why choose porcelain veneers?

While there are several cosmetic dentistry solutions available to our patients, there are none like the ease of porcelain veneers. Veneers are completed from start to finish within weeks, and provide patients with a corrective option that can last a decade or longer. It starts with the preparation of the tooth. The front enamel may be filed down before impressions are made for fabrication of the new restoration. The impressions are mailed to a laboratory to a ceramist for creation and mailed back to the dental office within two weeks. Patients come back into the office for a placement appointment, during which the new veneers are bonded onto the natural tooth. Patients leave with a brand new look! Veneers are made to match the shape, size, and color of the existing teeth in the smile for seamless integration.
