Porcelain Veneers

Your perfect smile might not warrant dental surgery, orthodontics or even crowns. Instead, dental veneers might be a great option for you! In fact, veneers can be an excellent solution for discolored, cracked, misshapen or chipped teeth. One of the best features of all is that your porcelain dental veneers are custom fabricated specifically for your smile!

The procedure for placing dental veneers usually does not require any anesthetics, but that can be determined by your preference. It is important to us is that you be happy with your choice because that will mean even better results. Besides, when it comes to knowing what you like, you are the subject matter expert.

Custom porcelain veneers typically require two visits because the custom veneers are fabricated in a laboratory. First, a mold is made of your teeth. Next, when the custom veneers are ready, you will return for a second visit.

During your second visit, a small amount of enamel is removed from the surface of teeth where the veneer is to be fitted. Your teeth are also cleaned so that the veneer can be colored to match natural color of the your other teeth. The final step in the veneer process is one minute of light curing to dry the cement and fasten the veneer securely in place.

A follow up visit may be required in order to check the fitting of the veneer, but this is done on a patient-by-patient basis. Due to a variety of reasons, such as lifestyle and other situations, each patient’s experience with the dental veneer procedure is unique. That is why we adapt our process to your specific need.
