Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain mimics tooth structure better than other restorative materials. We can manipulate its color and translucency to re-create the look of any tooth. Harder than enamel, porcelain withstands wear and lasts for years. Porcelain resists stain better than tooth enamel. Very rarely will it discolor, unless the surface has become damaged.

We can correct many tooth problems with porcelain veneers: crowded teeth, short teeth, worn teeth, discolored teeth and misaligned teeth. Porcelain veneers are thin wafers of porcelain, about the thickness of a fingernail, that are bonded onto the front of teeth. They can restore worn or chipped teeth. They can close spaces between teeth or lengthen teeth. They can cover stained teeth. Teeth straightening with porcelain veneers can be an alternative to wearing braces.

To do them right, we shave a small amount of enamel from the fronts of your teeth and then bond on the porcelain with special bonding techniques that holds it so tightly, it almost becomes like an integral part of your tooth. The amount of surface reduction required to place porcelain veneers is minimal and doesn’t damage the tooth. We try to remove as little tooth structure as possible to give you the smile you want.
