Veneers


Close up of dental veneerVeneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom-made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile.

Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many cosmetic dental conditions for the front teeth.

As with most dental restorations, veneers may someday need replacement; however, they are still very durable and will last many years, giving you a long-lasting, beautiful smile.

Reasons for Porcelain Veneers

•  Crooked teeth
•  Misshapen teeth
•  Severely discolored or stained teeth
•  Teeth that are too small or large
•  Unwanted or uneven spaces
•  Worn or chipped teeth

What Do Porcelain Veneers Involve?

Receiving veneers usually requires two visits to complete the process. The teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer. A mold or impression of each tooth is taken and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and your dentist.

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

After your visit you will receive care instructions for your veneers. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your beautiful veneers.
