Porcelain Veneers

If you’re unhappy with the color, shape, or condition of your teeth, dental veneers provide a complete and painless solution to give you the aesthetically beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. Our veneers are made from incredibly thin layers of porcelain that we custom design to specifically fit over your existing teeth giving you a brilliant smile you’ll love to show off.

We recommend porcelain veneers for most applications since they offer the most superior aesthetic, strength, and longevity. There are many innovative variations used with porcelain veneers. With the help of our award-winning ceramists, we choose the best blends of porcelain to craft the perfect customized veneers keeping your facial features, skin tone, and many other important details in mind for an absolutely stunning final smile.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin layers of porcelain carefully crafted by adding one layer at a time to achieve the ultimate shape, shade, and look you desire. Our team of dental artists delicately sculpt the ideal shape to design the right veneer for each one your teeth. This material is cured to create a diamond strength hardness. The veneers are then cemented carefully to your teeth to address any functional problems and improve cosmetic imperfections.


Why Consider Porcelain Veneers?

Transforming the beauty of your teeth and smile can take your appearance back years. That’s why porcelain veneers are a popular choice to fully enhance your teeth if they are permanently stained over time by beverages or nicotine. Veneers are also a perfect option for teeth with chipped edges and minor fractions from the aggressive force of grinding your teeth. The aesthetics of veneers are permanent compared to traditional whitening procedures making them the ultimate choice for a brand-new and everlasting smile. Porcelain veneers are also used to hide imperfections such as chipped teeth, spaced or misshapen teeth, and teeth worn down over time.

Porcelain veneers are designed to be both attractive and durable, providing a strength similar to the natural enamel of your teeth.

Veneers give you more than just a cosmetically beautiful smile. They reinstate your confidence and bring back the joy of laughing and smiling in front of others.  This may be just what’s holding you back from getting that well deserved promotion or having the self-confidence to find your forever love.


Understanding the Process

We want you to feel confident and excited about your veneers as we design your new smile. In our office we meet to discuss the process of original records and the design of your new smile prior to moving to the second phase of preparation and delivery. This ensures sure you get the look you want that works with the shape of your face, mouth and lifestyle.

In most cases, the process takes no more than two appointments after the original design & records appointment. The design & records appointment includes taking detailed measurements of the size, desired shape, length and shade of the teeth while keeping your facial features and shape in mind. Each smile is unique, so we want to create a beautiful smile designed just for you.


First Porcelain Veneer Appointment – Preparation

During your first appointment, post the design & records visit, the teeth are either buffed for the bonding strength of non-invasive veneers or slightly prepped in the case of  deeply stained teeth to produce beautiful final veneers without any color variations. We want your new veneers to stay consistent to all your teeth regardless of their degree of darkness. Because the veneers are a thin material placed on top of your teeth, we remove a slight layer of your enamel to make room for the veneers. This process varies depending on the level of staining, damage, and misalignment.

Next, we take an impression of your teeth to create your veneers. We also set temporary veneers on your teeth until your custom-made veneers are ready to be placed. The temporary veneers are your first exciting preview of what’s to come with the final custom porcelain veneers. Temporary veneers offer something closer to what the final product will look like even though your final veneers are much more superior in shade, texture, luster, and smoothness.


Second Porcelain Veneer Appointment – Placing Your Custom Veneers

When your custom veneers are ready, we remove the temporary veneers, clean the area, and place your veneers to check the exact fit of each single veneer so you have a stunning smile prepared closely to your own teeth. When you are pleased with the aesthetics and they fully meet your expectations, the veneers are permanently cemented to your teeth revealing your brilliant new smile. We test the function, fit, and durability of the porcelain veneers to make sure they live up to our high-quality standards.

During the entire process it is our focus to ensure you are absolutely comfortable, and the process is pain-free and enjoyable.
