Porcelain Veneers

High Quality Porcelain Veneers

You may have heard people say that celebrities have Veneers and this may seem like the best way to replicate picture-perfect teeth. Porcelain veneers can really transform your smile! They are really thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel. It is often the material of choice for those looking to make slight position alterations, or to change tooth shape, size, and/or color. They are very durable and look great – just like natural teeth, only better. Our patients love the way veneers improve their appearance. Porcelain veneers do not require a lot of preparation, and they can be placed in just two or three visits to the dentist. If you’re looking for a smile makeover, porcelain veneers may be just the solution you’re looking for.

What Makes Porcelain Veneers Special?

Porcelain is a very strong, translucent material that closely r esembles the appearance of your natural tooth enamel. Porcelain laminate veneers consist of a compilation of several thin ceramic layers which replace original tooth enamel, and an adhesive layer. To apply a veneer, a very small amount of the original tooth enamel must be removed, usually less than a millimeter. This is essential as it creates room for the porcelain veneer to fit within the mouth and most accurately restore natural tooth function while creating an even better appearance than the original tooth. Light-sensitive resin is placed between the original tooth and the veneer and then hardened using a special curing light. Porcelain Veneers look so natural, in fact, that people won’t notice you’ve had any work done – they will just notice your beautiful smile! Since veneers have a very smooth, glass-like finish, they are also resistant to staining and attracting bacteria that can harm your teeth.

What Problems Can Porcelain Veneers Fix?

One of the great things about porcelain veneers is that they are so versatile. They are an excellent choice for correcting cosmetic dental flaws. Veneers look completely natural and can fix a number of problems, including:

  • Changing the shape of uneven teeth
  • Covering chips and cracks in teeth
  • Concealing gaps between your teeth
  • Correcting the appearance of slightly misaligned teeth
