Smiling is part of our everyday lives and relationships, and an embarrassing smile can seem to hold you back at times. Creating a smile that is attractive and interesting can be quick and easy with porcelain veneers, which can correct a variety of dental issues including:

  • Crooked or uneven teeth
  • Oddly shaped teeth
  • Cracked or damaged teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Worn enamel
  • Gaps between teeth

What are porcelain veneers?

Veneers are made of thin layers of porcelain that is permanently bonded directly to the front portion of a tooth. Porcelain veneers are a go-to solution in cosmetic dentistry because they are a conservative, non-invasive approach to correcting a patient’s smile. Following the procedure, some patients may experience slight sensitivity that usually subsides rather quickly.

Benefits of porcelain veneers include:

  • Results fast! The process for veneers takes about two visits
  • Minimally invasive procedure
  • Natural-looking results
  • Helps boost your self-confidence
  • Can correct multiple dental issues with one, simple solution

Additional advantages of porcelain veneers are:

  • Resistance to stains.
  • Durable and long-lasting – up to 15 years.
  • Restoration of functionality.
  • A customized solution.

Veneers, thin layers of natural-looking porcelain bonded to the front surfaces of front teeth, are considered a cosmetic (rather than restorative) treatment. Your dentist will discuss your medical history, and provide information on the benefits and risks of porcelain veneers. Because veneers are conservative and non-invasive, the most typical side effect reported is minor tooth sensitivity immediately following the procedure.

Although the satisfaction rate for patients with porcelain veneers is very high, they may not be the most suitable solution for everyone. During the consultation, your dentist will determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure. While porcelain veneers bring new life to the smiles of many patients, Drs.
