Porcelain Veneers

What are Porcelain Veneers?

If you’re feeling badly about your appearance and want to make a dramatic change, porcelain veneers are the go-to option. The procedure to place them is noninvasive, easy and quick. Little to absolutely no anesthetic is required and they are matched to your exact needs and specifications. Veneers can help to cover teeth that are discolored, stained, broken, cracked, chipped or unevenly spaced.

Why are Porcelain Veneers necessary?

Veneers are necessary to makeover your smile without any invasive treatment being needed. Despite these restorations being thin and lightweight, they can last for 10 or more years and stay in place when eating, chewing and doing everyday activities. There is no easier way to completely transform your smile than with the use of veneers. Some reasons to consider veneers include:

• Your teeth are stained and discolored
• Your teeth are short or uneven
• You have spaces and gaps between teeth
• You have broken, chipped or cracked front teeth
• You want a smile you can feel proud to show off

Who's a candidate for Porcelain Veneers?

Because veneers are so easy to place, they’re ideal for most adult patients looking to change the look of their smile. We will examine your teeth to make sure they do not need any additional treatment before fitting you with veneers. Veneers are surprisingly durable and you won’t need to pamper or worry about the restorations for years to come. They are made professionally just for you so that they look real and natural.

What occurs during the procedure for Porcelain Veneers?

We may or may not need to use any form of anesthetic for the procedure. The first step is to buff the front teeth to make room for the veneers and to improve their ability to adhere to the dentition. Impressions, or molds, are taken and used to craft the new veneers that you’ll be wearing. You will be scheduled to come in for a second appointment so that the permanent veneers can be placed. We may make small adjustments to the new veneers before allowing you to see your brand new, beautiful smile.
