Porcelain Veneers

  • Porcelain Veneers

    Use porcelain veneers to completely reshape your teeth for a beautiful, white smile.

    The Problem:

    • Stained or discolored teeth
    • Unsightly gaps between front teeth
    • Chipped teeth
    • Rough or jagged edges on front teeth
    • Teeth that are too small or large in proportion to rest of the mouth
    • Crooked teeth
    • Worn teeth

    The Solution:
    A porcelain laminate (often called a veneer) is a thin shell of porcelain that covers the front of each tooth. They bond directly to the front of the tooth, similar to the way artificial fingernails work. Each porcelain veneer is a work of art, carefully crafted in a laboratory to fit your individual smile.

    In the hands of a highly skilled dentist, porcelain veneers can provide you with an incredibly natural, beautiful smile. They are virtually undetectable and can dramatically improve your appearance. They are durable and long-lasting when compared to other cosmetic treatments.

    Although they are highly durable, porcelain veneers are not permanent. Well crafted laminates will last many years, but will eventually need to be replaced.

    Porcelain veneers are an excellent investment. However, they are not appropriate for teeth with excessive decay. In those cases, porcelain crowns are the only alternative. In the event that you desire only to improve tooth alignment, orthodontic treatment may be another alternative.
