Problems Solved by Porcelain Veneers


Porcelain veneers can solve numerous cosmetic dental problems in the same treatment, so you have fewer visits to the dentist’s office to get the results you want. You may be able to avoid undergoing a series of treatments, and have all of your problems solved in two office visits. Porcelain veneers can also be used in addition other procedures if you need work more extensive than what veneers alone can accomplish.

Stubborn Discoloration

Porcelain veneers can cover discoloration that is resistant to whitening, so anyone can have a bright beautiful smile. Even deep discoloration can be corrected. If you have always wanted a bright, white smile, but have been told that your discoloration cannot be treated with teeth whitening, porcelain veneers may be the answer.

Minor Crookedness

Often referred to as “instant orthodontics” porcelain veneers can be used to correct the appearance of minor crookedness and twisted teeth without the need for braces and the lengthy process of gradually moving your teeth into the right position.

If you have already gone the traditional orthodontics route, only to have your teeth shift out of place later, porcelain veneers can restore the look of all your hard work without the need to repeat the process.

Correcting Tooth Size

If your teeth are too short, it can create a gummy appearance. Teeth that are unevenly sized can appear crooked and unhealthy. Porcelain veneers can be used to give your teeth a more uniform size and shape, and they can be slightly longer than your natural teeth if your teeth are too short.

Chips, Cracks, and Holes

Chips, cracks, and small holes in your teeth can be covered and sealed with veneers. This puts an end to pain and sensitivity, stops damage from progressing, and corrects the appearance of small but serious dental flaws.

Gaps between Your Teeth

The appearance of small gaps can be corrected when the teeth on each side of the gap are covered with veneers that are slightly wider than the teeth, to close the gap.

What are Porcelain Veneers?


Porcelain veneers are a very popular choice in cosmetic dentistry because they are so versatile and can accomplish so much with so little time and effort. The concept is simple. A veneer is just a very thin shell of porcelain that is bonded to the front surface of your tooth. Because it is made of porcelain, it looks like real tooth enamel. Because it is bonded to your tooth, it is very strong and durable. Typically, veneers are used to cover anywhere from two or three to a group eight teeth.

Solving Multiple Issues in One Minimally Invasive Treatment

By choosing porcelain veneers, you may be able to avoid undergoing multiple procedures. Porcelain veneers can correct the appearance of chipped teeth, cracks, gaps, minor crookedness, unevenly sized teeth, and more. The procedure itself is minimally invasive, requiring only that the enamel be prepared to receive the veneers before they are placed. It is all done in just two office visits.

Beautiful Porcelain

Dental porcelain is the material most like natural tooth enamel that is available. It reacts with light in the same way as natural teeth, so you don’t get the flat that was common with older dental materials. It can be color-matched to your teeth, so it blends in perfectly with the surrounding teeth. We can whiten your teeth first so that your veneers are matched to your optimal shade. The veneers are stain resistant.

When you have porcelain veneers, you care for them just like your natural teeth. Because they are very thin, they will feel and function like your natural teeth, too.
