One of the best ways to improve the quality of a stained or otherwise damaged smile is through the use of high quality dental veneers. Our dentist can tell you the many benefits of porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin ceramic shells that are molded to the teeth, and then attached using a resin cement, for a permanent and brilliantly white smile. It's possible to get only a few veneers, if only some of your teeth are badly stained or discolored.
Veneers work best on teeth with serious stains, chips, cracks, or other cosmetic issues. They can even save a tooth from being removed, by stabilizing the tooth and protecting it from further damage. By adding a veneer before a tooth is completely beyond repair, patients may be able to avoid an expensive and uncomfortable crown or bridge. Veneers are painless and sturdy, and need little extra care to work correctly.
The procedure to create and install custom veneers depends on the amount of teeth to be covered, the quality and size of the teeth, and the material used to create the veneer. Dental veneers are made from two main materials. The first is porcelain, which is stronger and more realistic looking, but also more expensive. Porcelain veneers are usually fabricated in a separate dental laboratory from molds, then installed. Composite veneers are less expensive and can be fabricated in the dentist's office for a one visit installation, but can be weaker and need more care. Contact us to find out what materials they offer.
Veneers can even hide gaps or uneven teeth. A thin layer of the tooth that will have a veneer attached is removed, to make room for the veneer to attach. The amount that needs to be removed depends on the damage and size of surrounding teeth. Dental veneers are permanently attached dental appliances, and cannot be removed. If you would feel more comfortable with a removable veneer, you may want to look into Lumineers. These are high quality porcelain veneers that are attached in a way so they can be removed later, and don't require the teeth to be removed or reshaped. They do have a higher price point than traditional veneers, but for some patients they may be a better choice. Talk to our dentist to decide which type of veneers would be right for you.

Now I Can Smile Again!
The dentist just made my front teeth/smile look like I had veneers implanted! She took away all my dark spots and heading without crowns and painful implants. It looks amazing! Thank You 🙂
The dentist was very kind + caring. Highly recommend! I only had a few days left on my dental insurance + she helped to prioritize my care + fit me in so that I could get issues taken care of in a pinch. The office manager, couldn't have been sweeter + she helped me to understand the sometimes tricky insurance pieces + actual prices I'd be paying before I made any decisions. A+ experience.
