For those seeking a quick and simple cosmetic improvement to their smile, we offer porcelain veneers that can improve the look of your teeth in just two visits. Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin shells of porcelain that cover the outside of your teeth to mask any imperfections. We can shape your veneers to a specific size, color, or shape that suits your smile goals. This is an ideal option for those who have good overall oral health but want a cosmetic upgrade. Since porcelain veneers are a form of cosmetic dentistry that can improve several concerns at once, many people use them as a “smile makeover.” With just two office visits, yellowed, crooked teeth can be transformed into brilliant white, straight smiles. Our doctors focus on patient transparency as well as education. We will let you know if there are any concerns prior to having porcelain veneers placed, such as gum disease, and we are open to answering any questions you may have about the process so that you achieve your smile goals.
The process for getting porcelain veneers is simple compared to many other cosmetic dentistry services. During your first visit, we will remove a small layer of enamel from the front of your teeth to make space for the porcelain veneer. We then take a digital impression of your mouth and teeth using our CareStream 3600 digital scanner. This oral scanner replaces the need for messy, gag-inducing impressions, and allows us to capture a more accurate image of your tooth structure. We send these images to our high-quality, reliable dental lab to construct your porcelain veneers. During this time, you will be fitted with temporary veneers that look like natural, attractive teeth. Once we get your porcelain veneers back from the dental lab we can begin the process of securing them to your teeth. The veneers will be evaluated with how well they fit to your teeth and match the color you desire. Once everything has been approved by you, we will bond the porcelain veneers to your teeth. Veneers are very strong and durable, so you will not have to worry about biting into tough foods or chewing. When properly taking care of your teeth and porcelain veneers, you can expect them to last you for many years.
