Porcelain veneers are one of the most beautiful, durable, and smile changing procedures that cosmetic dentistry has to offer.

Common problems that veneers are used for:

  • Spaces between the teeth
  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Unsightly, stained or discolored teeth
  • Crooked or misshapen teeth
  • A smile line that is tipped or slanted

Porcelain veneers can be the solution to these problems, as they truly create a smile makeover.

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin custom-made porcelain shells that are permanently bonded to the front and sometimes middle teeth. The veneers are designed to reshape, widen, or alter its color, creating the appearance of a nearly perfect tooth.

Porcelain Veneer Procedure

The tooth is very slightly shaped to allow room for the thin porcelain covering so that the final resulting tooth will not be bulkier than the natural tooth. An impression is made and from this, our dental technician handcrafts a veneer for your tooth and smile. In some cases, a temporary veneer is placed on the tooth while the dental technician designs the veneer. When the veneers are ready and the patient approves, they are bonded into place. The procedure is totally without discomfort and the results are one of the most beautiful and smile changing treatments in the field of dentistry.

Dental Veneers Durability

Porcelain veneers are one of the most dependable and long-lasting treatments available in the dental field. The average lifespan, depending on patient care and lifestyle, could be 10 to 20 years.

“It was great to get all my treatment done in one office. I did not have to go somewhere else to get my implants done. And what surprised me the most was that the implant procedure was totally painless. I now get so many compliments on my smile.”


I would like to take this opportunity to speak about Dr. Robert Marx and his dental practice.  I first met Dr. Marx in the worst of circumstances, i.e., I had an abscessed and infected tooth, was in pain, and was absolutely terrified.  I found his practice purely by chance and he took emergency cases and… Read more “Ramona Pansegrau”

“I spent all my childhood with a gap that got the best of myself and my confidence. Now I can’t stop looking in the mirror and loving my smile. I now feel as good on the outside as the inside. I have a new confidence in myself. This changed my life.”


I have a beautiful smile thanks to Dr. Marx and the staff. They have expertly matched shape, color and size for the perfect veneers. They were extremely patient during the process and had my greatest desires in mind to achieve this. I am very impressed by their skill, equipment and talent.


“You provided me with the improved dental appearance without any fears coming to fruition. My “smile” is better than when I was a teenager, as everyone has told me. I get in arguments about my birth date – “you can’t be that old”. Just what a woman loves to hear. Thank you.”


“After my orthodontic treatment I feel my new confidence has propelled me in my career.”


Dr. Marx and his staff are the most excellent group of people I have ever met! Very professional, knowledgeable and friendly, absolutely caring in every aspect of their service. I was a cry-baby and fearful of dentists. Dr. Marx has never once hurt me or caused me to be fearful in any way. I am… Read more “Barbara J.B. Martin”

I found Dr. Marx through his website and the great references I found there. I have been phobic about dentists since I had a scary one when I was a child, but have done what was necessary to keep my teeth healthy. My front teeth were cracked to the gums as well as having moved since… Read more “Mary Eisenhower”
