Dental veneers correct dental flaws to improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile. They are thin shells that are attached to the front of your teeth, and they are made out of porcelain to match the appearance of tooth enamel, giving you a natural-looking smile. We can make dental veneers for one tooth or multiple teeth, and we can even make them for all of your teeth in order to brighten your entire smile. Our dentists may recommend dental veneers in order to correct dental imperfections such as:

  • Large spaces between teeth
  • Extremely stained, discolored or yellowed teeth
  • Irregularly shaped teeth
  • Slightly crooked teeth
  • Broken, chipped, fractured or worn teeth

Dental veneers are:

  • Custom-made. We custom-make dental veneers with CEREC technology to repair the specific dental imperfections of your teeth and whiten your smile.
  • Convenient. Once applied, they do not require any extra maintenance other than brushing and flossing and the regular two visits to our office during the year for teeth cleaning.
  • Minimally-invasive. Dental veneers are attached to the front of your teeth, meaning that little tooth enamel needs to be removed in order to apply them (less than would be for a dental crown).
  • Stain-resistant. Because we use porcelain, a stain-resistant material, your dental veneers maintain the brightness of your smile.

With our state-of-the-art technology, the process for receiving dental veneers is more convenient and comfortable than in the past. With our cone beam imaging technology and digital x-rays, we can quickly receive a more in-depth look at your mouth to see what teeth could be benefited by veneers and plan your treatment. We also use CEREC technology so that we can create your dental veneers in one visit to our office, eliminating the need for temporary veneers.

To prepare your teeth for dental veneers, our dental team will clean your teeth and then etch them to help the dental veneers stay connected. During the bonding process, your dental veneers are attached to your teeth with a dental cement. A UV light is shone on your teeth, which will harden the cement. The dental team then removes any additional cement and checks the fit of your dental veneers. After that, you are ready to show the world your new smile!

Our talented dentists and team look forward to helping you achieve an even more beautiful smile with dental veneers! If you have any questions about dental veneers or would like to schedule a consultation with one of our dentists, please contact our office today. We look forward to seeing you and your smile!
