Porcelain Veneers

Am I a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers can be used to fix a multitude of cosmetic dentistry issues. They are most often recommended if patients have:
Worn enamel
Chips or cracks
Tooth wear and tear
Uneven teeth
Slight misalignment
Gaps and spaces
Discoloration from permanent stains
Teeth that are dissimilar in color or contour
However, those who smoke or have weak teeth may not be candidates for porcelain veneers. If your teeth have extensive damage, dental crowns may be a viable alternative option. Additionally, those who have periodontal disease, decay, missing teeth, or who need major orthodontic work may require additional treatments prior to having veneers placed. Ask our dentistry team if you are eligible for this type of treatment.

How Do Veneers Work?

Porcelain veneers are strong, thin restorations that adhere to the front teeth surfaces. Once bonded into place, they camouflage chips, cracks, discoloration, and other cosmetic flaws, enhancing your smile and overall appearance.

Porcelain Veneers Placement

Initial Consultation

Tooth Preparation

In preparation for veneers, your dentist must prep your tooth. To do this, a small amount of enamel is removed from each affected tooth. This not only creates room for your restorations, but it also ensures that your veneers bond appropriately.

Tooth Impressions

Once each tooth has been prepared, your dentist takes impressions, which are used to create customized veneers. These tooth impressions may be taken with traditional dental alginate or with a digital handheld wand.

Temporary Veneers

After impressions have been taken, temporary veneers are bonded to each tooth. These restorations help protect your smile while your final veneers are being created. Though the specific timeline depends on each case, most patients wear temporary veneers for at least a couple of weeks.

Veneer Fabrication

Your impressions are promptly sent to our partner dental lab. A skilled ceramist adds layers of medical-grade porcelain to achieve the desired effect. Modern dental porcelain mimics natural tooth enamel so that patients can enjoy truly lifelike results.

Veneer Placement

When your custom veneers are finished, they will be shipped to our office. You will then be scheduled for another appointment for placement. After assessing the fit, color, and quality of your new tooth veneers, your dentist will carefully bond them into place using high-quality dental cement.
