What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are incredibly thin shells of false teeth that are attached to the front of your smile. Rather than having more invasive work done, veneers cover an array of flaws and imperfections that may have you feeling ashamed to smile. Despite being thin and lightweight, veneers are durable and can last for up to a decade before they may need to be replaced. The procedure to place veneers is easy, quick and you’ll benefit from a fully transformed smile.
Why would Porcelain Veneers be needed?
Because veneers are so durable and realistic-looking, you can benefit from a natural smile that lasts for years. You may want veneers because you’re going to be getting married, attending a reunion, graduating or just because you want to look your best. Some of the flaws that veneers can cover include:
- Chipped and cracked teeth
- Spaces and gaps between teeth
- Discolored or stained teeth
- Uneven, unsightly teeth

What makes you a good candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Most patients are good candidates to have porcelain veneers placed over their existing teeth. We will perform an exam before the veneers are made and placed for you. In the event that your teeth need additional work, like a root canal or filling, we may recommend other treatment options. Our goal is to provide you with a smile that you’ll love for life.
What can you expect during the procedure for Porcelain Veneers?
First, we will buff the front teeth so that the veneers sit comfortably and smoothly on top. This helps to prevent the veneers from looking bulky or fake. We then take impressions of the front of your teeth so that new veneers are made just for you. Your second appointment involves placing the veneers. We’ll make small adjustments to them to perfect your smile and you’ll be amazed at how you look. If you’ve been ashamed of your smile in the past, it’s time for a change with the help of veneers.
