What exactly are porcelain veneers?
Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are “cemented” to the front surface of the teeth to improve their cosmetic appearance. Veneers provide a conservative, non-aggressive way to rejuvenate your smile! Porcelain veneers are amazing at enhancing the shape, size and color of the tooth.
Why use porcelain veneers?
The attraction of veneers is not only the final natural appearance, but the conservative nature of preparation of the tooth. With veneers very little natural tooth structure is removed making them much more cosmetically safer and conservative than crowns. When veneers are bonded into place, the virgin strength of the tooth is captured as well. The many clinical and cosmetic benefits of porcelain veneers make them an excellent cosmetic treatment option for those who want to enhance the appearance of their teeth beyond just whitening.
Save time with porcelain veneers!
Getting porcelain veneers is very time-convenient. It takes two appointments to complete a veneer smile makeover. The first appointment is the shaping-impression appointment. While our specialized porcelain artist is custom crafting the ceramic veneers, you will wear provisional veneers to keep comfortable and socially confident. Then in about 2 weeks a second appointment would involve the cementing or bonding of the veneer onto the natural tooth, polishing the area, and making any minimal adjustments. After this you will be excited to go and show off your new smile!
