If you are looking for dramatic results, porcelain veneers are by far the most popular and effective way to get that WOW smile! Preferred by many of our clients, porcelain veneers give you the ultimate smile makeover experience. This procedure is simple and comfortable, transforming your smile in as little as two to three visits.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers instantly reshape your teeth and smile. Made from porcelain, veneers are ultra-thin, custom made ceramic restorations that are placed on the front of your teeth. Most cosmetic dental problems, such as chipped, cracked, stained, discolored, aged or misaligned teeth, can be solved with porcelain veneers. They can be used to lengthen or shorten your teeth to restore your smile.
This treatment, also referred to as instant orthodontics, can reposition your teeth and is a good alternative to traditional braces if you want immediate results. Veneers resist discoloration and are the most natural looking restoration available. Porcelain veneers are custom made, and blend in with your natural teeth, giving you the brightest, whitest smile possible.
The Porcelain Veneer Process
Your porcelain veneers are custom designed to give you the smile that you want to achieve. We work with you to carefully plan the color, shape and size of the veneers to give you the beautiful, natural smile you are looking for.
This simple procedure can be completed in as little as two to three visits. The first visit is used to discuss your goals for your new smile. During the second visit, your teeth are prepared for porcelain veneers. This includes removing a small amount of enamel from the surface of the tooth that is being treated. Unlike crowns or caps, veneers require very little reduction of the natural tooth. Then, impressions are made, and temporary veneers are placed to protect the newly exposed tooth. These temporary veneers will be adjusted to allow us to create the exact size and shape of veneers that look perfect for your smile.
The permanent porcelain veneer is then custom-designed to fit naturally and perfectly over each individual tooth, using the temporaries as a guide for size and shape. Within three weeks, you will return to have your new custom made veneers put into place.
