We offer a number of cosmetic procedures to brighten and improve your smile. One of the most versatile options is porcelain veneers. They can create subtle improvements, or dramatic transformation of your smile in less than a month!
What are veneers?
A veneer is a thin shell covering the visible surface of a tooth. It is wafer thin, so, very little, if any, enamel will need to be removed. Although the tooth remains essentially intact, it is completely hidden by the veneer. Most common cosmetic complaints can be corrected with one beautiful, gentle, convenient procedure.
Porcelain veneers can be used to change the size, shape, and color of teeth. They can close gaps, cover chips, and smooth out an uneven smile. Veneers can even make crooked teeth appear straight and symmetrical, earning them the nickname “instant orthodontics.”
One of the most important steps in the process is your initial consultation. The Doctor will take the time to understand your goals and explain what can be accomplished. Often times study models and photos of your teeth will be taken in order to plan your beautiful smile. Once you and the doctor have decided that veneers are right for you, the next step is preparing your teeth. A thin layer of enamel may be removed, and impressions will be taken. You may be provided with temporary veneers while the permanent ones are being fabricated.
It will take about two or three weeks for your new veneers to be created. When they are ready, we will schedule your next appointment. Before bonding them, the doctor will check the color, shape, and fit. If adjustments are needed, he will carefully sculpt the veneers.
