Smile wide and smile proud. Never hesitate to smile.
Porcelain veneers help improve the appearance of a tooth by covering the visible front surface with a custom-made, tooth-colored porcelain overlay to cover stains, small gaps and other aesthetic flaws.
In most cases, we can complete your porcelain veneer treatment in just one visit, and with proper care, your new smile can last many years.
A porcelain veneers procedure is performed on teeth that have minor cosmetic imperfections such as chips or cracks, discoloration, misshapen crowns, uneven spacing between teeth, gapped teeth, broken-down enamel and other flaws.
The goal of this type of dental work is to create an attractive, natural-looking result for you.
Veneers are popular because they’re easy to apply, require little preparation time and provide excellent results. They also don’t affect chewing function like some types of restorative treatments do.
They also are strong and durable, which means you can bite and chew with confidence without worrying about chipping off pieces of your restoration.

During our initial consultation, we will take impressions of your upper and lower jaws so we can make sure everything fits together properly before starting the process.
Your veneers will be designed in our in-house lab, which means you can be fitted quickly with your new smile.
Next, we use special light-curing resin material to bond the veneers directly onto your existing teeth. This bonding technique allows us to achieve maximum strength while still maintaining flexibility.
Once bonded, we polish the entire area until it looks perfect and you walk out of our office smiling!
After getting your veneers installed, there are a few things you should keep in mind to ensure long-lasting beauty.
1. Brush twice daily using gentle brushing motions. Brushing after meals helps remove food particles and bacteria that could cause staining.
2. Avoid sticky foods and beverages – these substances tend to stick to the surfaces of your newly repaired teeth and stain over time.
3. Use only water-based products. Oil-based products can leave stains behind.
4. Rinse thoroughly after each meal and brush immediately afterward. The longer food sits on your teeth, the more likely it is to become stained.
5. Don’t forget to floss at least once per day. It removes plaque buildup and prevents gum disease.
