Porcelain Veneers

Custom-Designed Porcelain Veneers


When you have multiple issues with your smile’s appearance, such as severe tooth discoloration, chipped teeth, worn down tooth surfaces, and more, improving your smile can seem complicated. However, when we design a cosmetic smile makeover, our goal is to minimize the amount of work needed while also optimizing the health and appearance of your smile. Porcelain veneers often allows us to accomplish that thanks to their ability to successfully correct multiple types of tooth blemishes conveniently and with highly lifelike results.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

A porcelain veneer is a thin shell of dental porcelain that’s designed to bond permanently to the front surface of your tooth. The porcelain is custom-tinted and layered to match the color, shade, and shine of your healthy, natural tooth structure. The veneer is designed according to highly precise measurements of the tooth’s size, shape, and contour. To place a veneer, we’ll carefully sculpt a minimal amount of enamel from the tooth’s front surface, which allows the veneer to sit flush and blend in discreetly with the surrounding teeth.

The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

The lifelike appearance of porcelain veneers is one of their greatest benefits, as you can significantly improve your smile’s appearance with just a single treatment. However, choosing porcelain veneers also has several benefits for your long-term oral health. For example, improving certain blemishes can improve your bite’s overall balance, as well as the health and integrity of your teeth. The ability to preserve most of your healthy tooth structure also means you have a reduced risk of issues such as damage or infection (decay) to the underlying tooth.
