What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin, ceramic dental restorations that are bonded to the front surface of the teeth, effectively covering up imperfections in the smile. Veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment because they can be used to address a number of cosmetic flaws including chips in the teeth, discoloration, or uneven spacing. Often referred to as “instant orthodontics,” because the restorations can completely transform the smile in such a short period of time, veneers mask minor imperfections and accurately mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural teeth, providing a seamless result. Traditionally, porcelain veneers had to be fabricated in an off-site dental laboratory, which required multiple dental appointments over the span of several weeks.
Using CEREC® technology, we can create strong, high-quality veneers that are customized for each patient within one office visit. Veneers can then be created in less than one hour while you relax in our comfortable office setting. You are then able to leave our office with a brighter, healthier-looking smile than when you arrived for your appointment. It’s that easy.
The benefits of Veneers:
Some of the advantages of veneers include:
Durability – treatments can last up to 15 years
Correct a variety of cosmetic flaws
Customized for your specific aesthetic goals
Alternatives to Traditional Veneers:
While traditional porcelain veneers are an enticing treatment option, we understand that patients have diverse needs when it comes to boosting the appearance of their smile. We offer Dental Bonding , LUMINEERS™ and the Snap-On Smile® to patients who desire less-invasive, more affordable cosmetic treatment.
Dental bonding is a versatile cosmetic dentistry treatment offered at our practice that can be used to cover up stains or cracks in the teeth, repair chipped teeth, or transform their shape. A tooth-colored resin is placed on the teeth to create an aesthetically pleasing result. Dental bonding is a pain-free treatment, and is a convenient, inexpensive way to gain a flawless smile.
LUMINEERS™ are often referred to as no-prep veneers because they are ultra-thin ceramic pieces that can often be bonded to the front of the teeth with little to no removal of enamel. This makes the placement of LUMINEERS™ a less-invasive procedure than traditional porcelain veneers, without sacrificing appearances. During an initial visit, an impression is taken of the teeth to be sent to a LUMINEERS™ dental lab, where customized restorations are created. You can then return in approximately two weeks to have your brand-new smile placed.

More about Teeth Whitening
Even individuals who have excellent oral health can experience tooth discoloration, causing them to feel self-conscious about their appearance during normal social activities, such as when taking pictures. While brushing and flossing can go a long way toward preserving the shade of the teeth, there are several factors which can dull the smile. These include consuming abrasive food and drink such as coffee or tea, smoking, using certain medications, aging, and even genetics.
Although over-the-counter teeth whitening products can achieve satisfying results for some patients, professional whitening is the safest, most effective, and longest-lasting option for improving the look of the teeth. We offer Boost Whitening and Whitening Deep Bleaching™ teeth whitening systems. These treatment options can be customized based on individual cosmetic goals and sensitivities.
