Natural-Looking Porcelain Veneers to Recreate Your Smile
Whether you want to change your tooth shape, size, or color, porcelain veneers are the answer. Veneers can even be used to make slight position alterations. Dental veneers are wafer thin pieces of porcelain and an adhesive layer that replace your original tooth enamel. Porcelain is used because it replicates the natural appearance and function of teeth, making the veneers indistinguishable from any other beautiful smile. The bonding adhesive layer is composed of light-sensitive resin that is hardened with a curing light to ensure great-looking and long-lasting results.
To apply porcelain veneers, our dentists must first remove a small amount of your tooth enamel, typically less than a millimeter. This step is essential because it creates space for the dental veneers to fit inside your mouth and ensures improved tooth appearance and function. If you have any questions or concerns about the process of removing enamel, our staff members are happy to answer them.
When your original teeth are discolored, worn down, chipped, misaligned or irregularly shaped, speak with one of our dentists to determine if dental veneers are the right option for you. Since every mouth is different, our staff must first analyze your smile to see if porcelain veneers are the best treatment to achieve the results you desire. A wide range of dental treatments are available at our offices, including teeth whitening, invisible braces, and crowns, so we can meet almost type of cosmetic need.
