Veneers

Veneers

Veneers are composed of extremely thin sheets of porcelain, and are used to cover the existing tooth. This effectively “fixes” or conceals issues such as cracked, chipped, severely stained, or very misshapen teeth. Because they are made out of porcelain, they often look almost exactly like natural teeth, even reflecting light in the same way. Hardly anyone will be able to notice the difference. Veneers are also very durable and resistant to stains. If they are damaged, we can quickly and easily repair them as well.

What Problems Do Veneers Fix?

Porcelain veneers are able to conceal:

  • Cracked teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Jagged or uneven tooth edges
  • Severe stains
  • Dead teeth

What to Expect

Before the procedure beings, we’ll need your help to figure out exactly what you want out of your veneers. Once we know that, we can make sure they satisfy you completely. We’ll then examine your mouth and teeth to verify that veneers are the best step for you to take. Our team of experienced professionals will give you a local anesthetic before removing a small part of the enamel from your tooth, making room for the veneer. Then, we’ll take a mold of your tooth, which will allow us to make the veneer fit as closely as possible. This means that your veneer will be secure and comfortable. We’ll even check with you to make sure that everything is looking the way you want it to.

Your veneers will be fabricated over about two weeks. Once they’re done, we’ll call you back and put them on. Your veneers will feel so much like natural teeth, that odds are you won’t even be able to tell the difference!
