Porcelain Veneers or Dental Veneers

Porcelain Veneers information

Porcelain veneers go by a number of different names including dental porcelain laminates or dental veneers.  They consist of intricately small pieces of porcelain that bond to your existing tooth.  The purpose of a veneer is to make the outward appearance of your tooth better and more uniform with your other teeth.

Many celebrities make use of veneers early in their career to get that award-winning smile that you’ve always dreamed about.  If you are a regular wine drinker, coffee drinker, cola drinker or smoker, there is a chance that your teeth may become discolored.  Certain medications may also affect the color of your teeth, making veneers a good option for you.

Porcelain veneers are created to be more resistant to stains than your existing tooth and are very natural looking, blending in with the rest of your teeth and jaw structure.

What should I expect?

As with all things, preparation is key and nowhere is this more important than when we are dealing with your smile!  Your visit will begin with a consultation, so that we may examine your existing teeth and get a better idea of what it is that you hope to accomplish with your veneers.  Then, we need to take pictures or x-rays if required, of your teeth as well as molds, or impressions of your existing teeth.

Once the molds are completed, the veneers are constructed and upon completion, you are scheduled for an additional appointment to install them.  Setting the veneers is a painless process and can be done quickly, depending on on how many veneers are being created.
