Achieve a Beautiful Smile with Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are extremely thin pieces of durable, tooth-shaped porcelain that are custom made in color and shape by a professional laboratory. They are attached to the front of your teeth to create a beautiful and dazzling smile.

Veneers can be the ideal solution to completely reshaping your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns when it comes to treating dental conditions.

While doing dental restorations, veneers are not permanent and may need to be replaced someday. However, they are durable and will last many years, helping to form your new beautiful and long-lasting smile.

Reasons to get porcelain veneers:

  • Cosmetically – create a uniform, white, beautiful smile
  • Crooked teeth
  • Severely discolored teeth
  • Teeth that are too small or large
  • Unwanted or uneven spaces
  • Worn or chipped teeth

That is involved in getting porcelain veneers? 

Getting veneers usually requires two visits to complete the process, with little or no anesthesia used during the process. To prepare your teeth, they are lightly buffed and the surface is shaped to allow for the thickness of the veneer. You and your dentist will then choose a  shade, or color, for your mold that is taken for your teeth.

During your second visit, your teeth will be cleansed with a special liquid to achieve a durable bond. Bonding cement is then placed between your tooth and veneer and a special light beam will be used to harden the set bond.
