Porcelain Veneers

The Facts About Dental Veneers
Even a subtle change in your smile can make a dramatic difference in the way you look and feel and on your social outlook!




Dental Veneers are an excellent cosmetic remedy for a variety of dental conditions that affect the appearance of the front teeth. Durable and color stable, veneers are, in many cases, the perfect way to restore the natural function and beauty of your teeth, so you can smile with confidence! Veneers, usually fabricated from porcelain, are a thin, semi-translucent shell, custom made to fit precisely over an existing tooth. They are permanently bonded, held in place by a special resin that adheres the back of the veneer to the front of the tooth. The finished result is extremely strong and durable.




Though veneers are not suitable for every patient, they are a cosmetic alternative for a variety of dental conditions affecting the front teeth, including:

  • closing diastemas (spaces between the teeth)
  • restoring broken or chipped teeth
  • covering unsightly, stained or washed-out fillings
  • whitening permanently stained or discolored teeth
  • correcting uneven or crooked teeth

Advantages and Benefits of Veneers
When your smile is disfigured by decay, abrasion, chipping, breakage or imperfect development, our goal is to restore its natural beauty so you can smile with confidence. At one time, resin fillings or crowns were the only available treatment for the above types of conditions. Today, a third alternative is available, one with proven result! There are many benefits
and advantages to having porcelain veneer applied to your front teeth. These may include any or all of the following considerations:

  1. Only a small amount of natural tooth structure (if any) is removed during
    the procedure.
  2. A healthy, natural look is achieved with little of no discomfort.
  3. Veneers are often less expensive than alternative procedures.
  4. Veneers are strong, durable and color-stable.
