Your smile can be improved using porcelain/ceramic veneers to enhance alignment and the color or shape of your teeth. A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that is bonded to the front of your teeth and becomes part of the tooth.
WHAT EXACTLY IS A PORCELAIN VENEER?
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-colored ceramic materials designed to cover (laminate) the front side of teeth. They are made in our laboratory, from a model of your teeth.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PORCELAIN VENEERS?
Correctly done, a porcelain veneer will improve your smile by restoring a tooth to its original strength and appearance. Veneers are great for correcting gaps, stains, and badly shaped or crooked teeth. Think of it as Photoshop for your teeth.
WHAT ARE THE STEPS REQUIRED TO GET A PORCELAIN VENEER?
Minor preparation of the teeth will be completed during the initial visit. We’ll make models and take photographs of your teeth. After determining the desired color, our laboratory will fabricate the restoration. Upon completion, a second appointment will be scheduled. At that time, you’ll have the opportunity to review the veneer. Once approved, it will be bonded to your teeth.
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR PORCELAIN VENEERS?
We’ll asses your teeth to determine if this is the best treatment choice. Veneers are often the most conservative approach to changing the color, size, shape, or alignment of your teeth.
