Veneers are a fantastic way to fix front teeth. You can whiten your teeth, close spaces, and create a great smile. It is a way to instantly straighten crooked teeth.
• Spaces between the teeth (diastemas)
• Broken or chipped teeth
• Unsightly, stained or washed out fillings
• Permanently stained or discolored teeth
• Misshapen or crooked teeth
• Whiten dark yellow or stained teeth
Porcelain veneers can instantly straighten smiles, close spaces, reshape, and accomplish minor realignment of your teeth. You can have that “Hollywood” smile you’ve always wanted.
Veneers are very thin and are bonded to the front of your anterior teeth. These veneers are about 0.3mm to 0.5mm in thickness but are very strong once bonded to your teeth. They have a “life like” appearance with the beauty and durability only porcelain restorations can afford. Veneers have several advantages over crowns (caps). There is no “dark line” that is sometimes seen with older front crowns. They transmit light better and, therefore, have a more translucent appearance giving a natural, esthetic look. Veneers do not require the massive grinding of tooth structure that caps do, yet, they accomplish a lifelike esthetic result.
How’s it done? After a through discussion with us to establish just what you wish to accomplish AND establish what can or can not be done, your first appointment usually involves some minor contouring of the front teeth and taking an impression of the teeth. The veneers are tried in, and, if satisfactory, they are bonded in place. The results are instant and spectacular! Many times, we combine bleaching with porcelain veneers to make that perfect smile. If some front teeth are already badly broken down, we can place new all porcelain crowns combined with veneering and other cosmetic techniques. Usually, we can give you that smile you have always wanted.
