Cosmetic Dentistry - Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers, also known as porcelain veneers or composite veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored, translucent porcelain or composite resin, custom made to fit over teeth and improve their color, shape and overall appearance. Placement of dental veneers can dramatically improve your smile and appearance.

What types of problems can dental veneers correct?
Placement of dental veneers is sometimes referred to as "instant orthodontics" because they can be used to cover a variety of dental problems involving teeth in the "smile zone" including:

  • Spaces between the teeth.
  • Poorly shaped or crooked teeth.
  • Broken or chipped teeth.
  • Permanently externally stained and/or internally stained teeth.
  • Unsightly or stained fillings.

Porcelain dental veneers mask the discoloration or unevenness of teeth to make them look uniform, bright and sparklingly white. Porcelain’s smooth surface also makes it hard for stains to stick permanently, which is why porcelain is not prone to discoloration.

Dental veneers are a safe and effective dental treatment, and our experienced and skilled dental staff will offer personalized attention to each patient to ensure that the procedure is as comfortable and pain-free as possible.
