Porcelain Veneers

porcelain veneers

Chips, stains, or gaps between teeth don't have to mean an end to your vibrant smile. Porcelain veneers, thin shells of ceramic material placed over the natural tooth surface, can remove these flaws and restore your smile's appearance. Designed to mimic the natural translucency of enamel, porcelain veneers look and feel like your natural teeth.

Reasons to Choose Porcelain Veneers

If you want to straighten crooked teeth, repair cracks, or remove deep discolorations, porcelain veneers can completely transform your smile. Blending artistry and science, your dentist will select veneers that compliment your other teeth, facial features and personality. Many patients select porcelain veneers because they:

  • Look completely natural
  • Offer strength and durability
  • Cost less than other options
  • Renew your image and boost confidence

Revitalize Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are used to cover discolorations and imperfections. These restorations can also serve as an effective substitution for crowns on the front teeth because they can aesthetically change the size, color, and shape of your teeth. Often, your dentist can mount the veneers using little or no anesthesia. Resistant to staining, porcelain veneers last for years and are not affected by things like coffee, tea, and cigarettes.

To prepare your teeth, the dentist will first remove about half a millimeter of the natural enamel, which allows for the thickness of the veneer. Next, the doctor will take a mold of the teeth. These models are sent to a lab where a skilled technician will fabricate your custom veneers. Finally, your dentist will permanently bond the veneers to the natural teeth.

Common Questions about Veneers

For anyone who wants to consider improving their images with porcelain veneers, we have provided frequently asked questions and answers to offer more information about these restorations. If you want to discuss your options, call your dentist and schedule a consultation appointment.

How do veneers work?
Crafted from solid dental porcelain, veneers cover your front teeth to remove flaws that hinder your beautiful smile. Traditional porcelain veneers are customized to fit the size, shape, and color of your teeth so that you achieve a gorgeous appearance and natural-looking restorations.

What do porcelain veneers cost?
We can't give you an estimate on the price because each set of veneers is specifically designed for that individual patient. During your consultation appointment, the dentist will discuss your visions, evaluate your mouth, and create a complete plan for updating your smile. At that time, we will review costs and payment options.

Can I remove the veneers at a later date?
If you choose custom veneers, the restorations are permanent because your doctor will remove a thin layer of enamel to prepare your teeth for the porcelain veneers. Little or no-prep options like Lumineers do allow patients the flexibility of returning to their original smiles. However, Lumineers don't work in all cases, so you will need a consultation and exam to determine the best option for your smile.

Why can't I just whiten my teeth instead?
In some cases, professional teeth whitening can brighten your smile and revive your appearance. When you have gaps, permanent stains, or chips, bleaching your teeth won't address the issues. Porcelain veneers literally cover the teeth and create a straight, attractive smile.

Does it take a long time to get veneers?
Most of the time, patients complete the whole process in four to six weeks. During this time, you will have an initial exam, take impressions for the veneers, and return for final placement.

The Proof is in Our Patients
I was nervous going to the dentist but actually had a great experience there. The hygienist Kathy was so sweet and totally made me feel at ease and so was the doctor. I am not more comfortable to go back and do not need to be so nervous anymore because I feel like I’m in good hands the staff is friendly and warm.

Best dentists I’ve taken my family to. They are very skilled and go the extra mile for every single patient. They definitely know how to make it an easy experience on the kids too. Each kid says, “I had a good time,” at the dentist... Very comforting to have considering some of the horror stories we have experienced with other local dentists.

My kiddos have been going to see Dr. Kim for about 6 years now. Always great service and experiences. It also helps that there is free wifi, coffee and lemon flavored water 🙂

Iiona Virgin

Always courteous and friendly staff. The wait time getting into the Dentist is never long. The dentist will take the time to discuss what is going to be done. Also, they will help you relax if nervous about seeing the Dentist.
