Porcelain Veneers

What are Veneers

Veneers are custom-made shells specially prepared to make your teeth look natural. They are affixed directly to the tooth. The ultimate goal of selecting porcelain is durability, stain resistance, and a natural look. Veneers are an important tool in cosmetic dentistry. A dentist may use one veneer to restore a single tooth that may have been fractured or discolored, or multiple teeth to create a dental makeover. Many people have small teeth resulting in spaces that may not be easily closed by orthodontics. Some people have worn away the edges of their teeth resulting in a prematurely aged appearance, while others may have malpositioned teeth that appear crooked.

Multiple veneers can close these spaces, lengthen teeth that have been shortened by wear, fill the black triangles between teeth caused by gum recession, provide a uniform color, shape, and symmetry, and make the teeth appear straight. It is also recommend to use thin porcelain veneers to strengthen worn teeth. Thin veneers is an effective option for aging patients with worn dentition. In many cases, minimal to none tooth preparation is needed when using porcelain veneers

Having a tooth veneered is a simple procedure requiring just a few appointments. To provide room and help strengthen the veneer, a small amount of enamel may be removed from the front of the tooth. An impression of the tooth is sent to a dental laboratory where the veneer is made to match the color and shape of your teeth.

When it’s time to attach the veneer, your tooth is prepared by roughening the front surface with a mild etching solution. Using composite resin cements, the veneer is set in place. 

Even the most subtle change in your smile can make a dramatic difference in the way you look and feel. And when you feel and look good, you project a confident image. So, make the most of your smile. Ask us what veneers can do for you!.
