Porcelain Veneers

Cosmetic Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain Veneers are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored material bonded to the front surface of your teeth to improve your smile.  Porcelain Veneers resist stains and better mimic the way that light reflects off of natural teeth.

Veneers can be used to fix discolored teeth, chipped or broken teeth, or teeth that are uneven, irregularly shaped, or have large gaps between them.  Veneers are a more invasive treatment option than dental bonding.  Getting Porcelain Veneers requires several office visits, from the initial consultation visit, to the preparation of the Veneers, and a later visit for the application of the Veneers. 

The dentist will prepare your teeth for Veneers by removing a small amount of enamel from the surface of your teeth.  Next the dentist will take an impression of your teeth, which will be used to construct your Porcelain Veneers.  Once the Veneers are made, your dentist will temporarily place them on your teeth, and trim and color as necessary.  Once the dentist is happy with the fit and color, your teeth will be cleaned, polished and etched.  The Veneers will then be permanently cemented into place.  A follow up visit will be scheduled where further adjustments can be made.
