Porcelain veneers are the ultimate in enduring beauty. They are unmatched in natural artistry and conservative treatment. Veneers are usually less than one millimeter, like a contact lens, in thickness and are bonded directly to the teeth. They are made from porcelain in the shade that you choose and can instantly correct tooth discoloration, chips, old fillings, misaligned teeth, and other smile deficiencies. They can last indefinitely and with proper brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups they are proving to be some of the longest lasting restorations we can do in dentistry. Since they go only on the outside of the teeth, sensitivity is seldom in issue.
Reasons to choose Porcelain Veneers
Chips, stains, or gaps between teeth don’t have to mean an end to your vibrant smile. Porcelain veneers, thin shells of ceramic material placed over the natural tooth surface, can remove these flaws and restore your smile’s appearance. Designed to mimic the natural translucency of enamel, porcelain veneers look and feel like your natural teeth.
If you want to straighten crooked teeth, repair cracks, or remove deep discolorations, porcelain veneers can completely transform your smile. Blending artistry and science, your dentist will select veneers that compliment your other teeth, facial features and personality. Many patients select porcelain veneers because they:
- Look completely natural
- Offer strength and durability
- Cost less than other options
- Renew your image and boost confidence
Porcelain Veneers Procedure
On your consultation visit, we will show your our large gallery of smile makeovers so you can choose what fits your desires. We will then formulate a plan and decide what treatment fits your needs the best. The tooth color, position of the gums, and your bite will be discussed and together we will decide on treatment that will give the most stable long-term results. We used several different porcelain systems depending upon the particular needs of the patient.
We use some of the finest ceramists in the world for our Cosmetic Porcelain Veneers. Although the fee may be slightly higher, they provide a level of beauty that is unsurpassed in the cosmetic dentistry world. Our gallery features a variety of patients with several different porcelain systems. We match patient needs with their cosmetic wants to create a natural beauty and excellence that we expect to last for decades. Because these veneers are extremely thin, less than a half a millimeter, they blend in naturally with the teeth with almost no tooth preparation.
