One of the most beautiful and versatile restorative improvements in modern dentistry is the ability to completely transform your smile using porcelain veneers. The technology we use to create veneers for our patients is exceptional and produces a beautiful, natural result that gives our patients a long-lasting solution for a gorgeous smile.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are tooth-like, thin porcelain dental restorations that we custom design to improve the appearance of your smile. We can use veneers to correct shortened, worn, stained, chipped, and the appearance of misaligned teeth. We can even use dental veneers to close a diastema (gap) in your smile!
We design each veneer for a custom fit. They will be the correct size and length so that you can comfortably chew and speak. Veneers cover the front of your natural tooth structure. We will recommend the number of veneers that will give you the best results and a seamless appearance to your smile.
Porcelain Veneer Treatment
You can play a role in choosing your new smile by telling us what you like and don’t like about the way your teeth look. By sharing this information, we will design a new smile for you that gives you the look you want – even if it is celebrity perfect!
We will make room for your porcelain veneers by polishing away some of your natural tooth structure. That way, we can avoid a bulky appearance. We do this in a conservative way, preserving as much of your natural tooth structure as possible. Your veneers will cover your tooth with an airtight seal, protecting them and providing outstanding esthetics.
When we design your new smile, we will take impressions of your teeth, design your veneers, and our trusted dental lab will create them with realistic shading and translucency for a truly outstanding result.
Caring for Your Dental Veneers
Your veneers are strong, but not indestructible!
You should care for them by avoiding hard foods that could break or damage your natural veneers. Do not chew ice or use your teeth as tools. Avoid biting hard candy or super sticky substances that could cause damage. Brushing and flossing your teeth, as recommended, will help preserve your dentistry, as well as your natural teeth.
Regular dental cleanings and exams are the best way to prevent problems with your natural teeth or with your porcelain veneers. A small investment in prevention is great insurance to protect your beautiful smile.
