Porcelain Veneers

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are thin wafer-like casings that are bonded to the front of your teeth with a strong adhesive and are highly resistant to staining. Each veneer is custom shaped to your tooth and colored to match the surrounding teeth or most any shade that you would be interested in. They are a great option for people who do not have structural issues with their tooth and still have a strong root system, but need to fix the appearance. While veneers are a cosmetic solution for many individuals, they can also protect your damaged teeth.

Porcelain Veneers Procedure

Upon your initial consultation, our team will evaluate your teeth and ask what you would like to improve. Once you decide to have the veneers completed, we will schedule an appointment to customize your veneer templates and you will leave with temporary veneers while your permanent ones are being created. Our practice and staff are here to ensure you are comfortable during every visit.

At the final appointment, we will replace the temporary veneers with bonded, beautiful porcelain veneers. The total process typically takes between three to four weeks from start to finish, resulting in a radiant smile.
