A “Secret” Way to Beautiful Teeth
Porcelain veneers may be the answer you are seeking. Also known as porcelain laminates, veneers are extremely thin layers of tooth-colored porcelain that cover the front surface of your teeth. Veneers can disguise teeth that have become discolored, broken, chipped, or worn down from years of wear. They work beautifully to reshape and size teeth to be more attractive, and they can be sized to disguise gaps between teeth.
How Veneers Are Made
The process is not complicated and won’t involve many appointments. During your first visit, we remove enough tooth enamel to accommodate the new veneer. We then create a mold of your tooth, which will be used by our lab to create the porcelain veneer for your tooth. At your return visit, we will bond the new veneer to your teeth, and your new smile is complete.
Why We Like Veneers
Veneers look natural, they don’t stain easily, and they don’t irritate your gums. The color can be matched to adjacent teeth, or it can be used to lighten teeth that appear too dark. Care is simple. You will care for your veneers just as you do your normal teeth by brushing twice daily and flossing. Another reason we like veneers is that they provide a beautiful result, yet they are a conservative treatment that preserves tooth enamel.
