  • 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, 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 the tooth 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 thickened or bulkier than the natural tooth. An impression is made and from this, our dental technician handcrafts a veneer custom made for your tooth and smile. In some cases a temporary veneer is placed on the tooth while the dental technician designs the veneer. The veneers are tried in place and once the patient approves of the beautiful result the veneer is 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 veneer have turned out to be one of the most dependable and long-lasting treatments available in the dental field. Literally, nothing lasts forever but a person can expect a number of years from a porcelain veneer. The average lifespan, depending on patient care and lifestyle, could be 10 to 20 years.
