Porcelain veneers are very thin, durable, customized “facings” of porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. They are semi-translucent, which improves your smile with a natural appearance. Porcelain veneers mimic your natural teeth, renewing the position and shade of the teeth that they cover creating the appearance of a perfect and beautiful smile.

Porcelain veneers can be used on one or several teeth and can treat multiple situations including:

  • Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile
  • Crooked teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Discolored or stained teeth
  • Teeth that are too small or large
  • Unwanted or uneven spaces
  • Worn or chipped teeth

Each person is unique so careful planning and clear communication are essential to achieving a smile that is naturally beautiful and functionally accurate. The final result is dependent on many factors. The first piece of the puzzle is being clear about what you want the teeth to look like after the final porcelain veneers are in place. It is important for the patient to communicate the result they want and the dentist to clearly understand it. Beautiful results are also dependent on the dentist and the ceramist being very skilled and taking the necessary time to get exquisite results. Our doctors have spent many years of additional education beyond dental school becoming experts in cosmetic dentistry. We work with only the best personally-selected ceramists, who are experts and artists in their own right to ensure your result.
