Porcelain Veneers Create Brilliant, Confident Smiles

Veneers are made from medical-grade porcelain.
This advanced dental ceramic mimics the light-reflecting properties of natural tooth enamel and will be color-matched to the shade of surrounding teeth.

Veneers are a versatile smile enhancement.
Porcelain veneers are commonly used to conceal chips, cracks, misalignment, gaps, and stubborn discoloration that does not respond to traditional whitening treatment.

Quality and durability you can feel.
These incredibly thin shells are also remarkably strong. With proper oral care, porcelain veneers can last for up to 25 years without fracturing or other damage.

Sounds impressive but are veneers right for me?​

Candidates Must Have Good Oral Health & Be Committed to Regular Check-Ups

Have Sufficient Enamel

Before veneers are placed, a certain amount of enamel must be removed. Minimal and no-prep techniques allow a broader range of patients to qualify. However, some patients with very worn or thin enamel might not be eligible for veneers. 

Free of Severe Teeth Grinding

Bruxism is characterized by clenching and grinding, which can fracture porcelain. Some patients can protect their veneers with an oral appliance. In other cases, your doctor might recommend addressing the problem before you are considered a good candidate.

Do Not Suffer from Pronounced Misalignment

Although veneers can conceal gaps between teeth and other types of minor misalignment, severely crooked teeth can increase the risk of chipping your veneers. In these cases, your doctor might recommend orthodontics.

Ready for a Permanent Investment

Veneers are more costly than other cosmetic options, such as dental bonding. The procedure is also irreversible and the restorations will likely need to be replaced at some point. Patients should carefully weigh these considerations before moving forward.

Practice Good Hygiene

Even though veneers will not stain or develop decay, patients must continue to practice good oral hygiene. Regular checkups are essential so your dentist can monitor the integrity of the restorations, as well as clean the underlying teeth and along the gums.

But There Are Less Expensive Procedures...

Dental bonding is commonly used to treat many of the same conditions as porcelain veneers. While bonding is a fine option, composite resin cannot compete with the strength, durability, and lifelike appearance of a well-crafted porcelain veneer.

Let's see how the veneer is placed...

Will They Really Look Like My Teeth?

In the past, veneers could appear unnatural, too perfect, or bulky. But with today's state-of-the-art materials, they are indistinguishable from natural teeth to all except the most highly trained eye.

Although every patient's results will vary depending on their goals, you can generally expect a brighter, more balanced, and more youthful-looking smile.

Now what if you could revitalize your whole smile with one treatment?

After

Veneers conceal minor imperfections for a bright, beautiful result.

What About Protecting My New Smile?

Veneers can simply be cared for like your natural teeth. Although everyone should refrain from certain habits, veneers patients especially should also avoid:

  • Eating ice
  • Biting your fingernails
  • Opening packages with your teeth
  • Chewing on pens or other objects

If you grind your teeth from time to time or play contact sports, speak with your doctor about receiving a customized mouthguard. 

Still considering other treatments?

Beautiful Results

No other dental treatment can address such a wide variety of cosmetic concerns. Bonding can treat a number of conditions but does not have the longevity of veneers. A crown can repair damaged teeth, but requires significant alterations to the natural structure of the tooth.

Porcelain veneers are designed to enhance the appearance of your smile immediately after they are placed.
