What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers are super-thin sheaths of durable dental porcelain that are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth to mask all kinds of cosmetic flaws in your grin. The porcelain material perfectly recreates natural tooth enamel, right down to the way light bounces off of it. Once your veneers have been placed, no one should even be able to tell you had dental work done!

Am I a Good Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?

If you have any of the following imperfections in your smile, veneers might be right for you:

  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Small gaps
  • Slightly rotated teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Stains or discoloration

Since veneers are a cosmetic treatment, it’s recommended that your teeth and gums are in excellent condition before placing veneers. That means that if you currently have any tooth decay or gum disease, we’ll need to treat those issues first.

The Porcelain Veneers Process

After your initial veneers consultation with one of our dentists, plan on making two additional trips to our dental office. During the first visit, we will prepare your teeth by removing a tiny sliver of enamel. This will ensure that your veneers lay flat against your smile line. Then, we’ll take impressions of your prepped teeth and send them off to our dental lab, where your restorations will be crafted. In the meantime, we can let you take your new smile for a test drive by affixing you with temporary veneers. A few weeks later, your permanent ones will be ready. Simply return to our dental office and we’ll remove your temporaries and place your permanent veneers. Your new smile will be good to go!
