Sometimes the shape, size, or color of our teeth can make them appear less attractive—even when our smile is healthy! Porcelain veneers offer the ultimate solution for smile transformations in cosmetic dentistry. Bonding a thin facing or covering, called a veneer, to your natural tooth structure, your dentist will replace the visible portion of your tooth with a natural-looking cover. By placing a veneer on top of your teeth, you can easily hide a variety of dental problems like discoloration, small teeth, or even gaps, giving your smile an instantly refreshed look.
A more conservative alternative to dental crowns, veneers can give you the smile you deserve. We make sure that our veneers will appear extremely natural; our porcelain material is color-matched to your smile to ensure that your veneers seamlessly blend into your other teeth. And while some patients opt for large sets of veneers, you can also choose to cover individual teeth that may cause you problems aesthetically. Veneers are a truly custom experience for whatever your smile needs may be.
Porcelain veneers are the top-line defense for many cosmetic dental issues. Veneers can be a great alternative to braces for slight orthodontic problems and provide a beautiful smile in a short amount of time. For cosmetic problems, like chips, broken teeth, or discoloration, porcelain veneers offer patients an innovative way to achieve better smiles through a minimally-invasive procedure.
The process of getting traditional veneers placed involves a small layer of enamel being removed to make room for your new porcelain veneer. Because of this enamel removal, traditional veneers are permanent. However, there are other veneer options that are less invasive and fully reversible. We are pleased to offer the Lumineers® procedure for patients who might be better suited for a semi-permanent smile solution.
