What Are Veneers?

Our office offers porcelain veneers to our patients as an ideal choice for improving your smile, and because of the simplicity they provide. Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain coverings for the front portion of the teeth that are bonded to the enamel. They can be made of different materials; composite veneers are done because of their durability, aesthetics and affordability. 
Porcelain veneers are durable and they have a realistic appearance. Veneers are a more conservative alternative to crowns since they require less removal of the tooth's original surface. These can be done on teeth that have not been compromised by large restorations or root canal treatment. With veneers in place, patients can expect straighter teeth with proper spacing, and the shade selection can be to the patient's desire.

The Procedure for Veneers

During the initial visit, we will talk with you about the procedure. If the placement of veneers is the option that we recommend, we will discuss the types and the cost. The CAD-CAM, CEREC restoration, which is done in one visit, is a great option because no temporaries are needed. Lab-prepared veneers require two visits and temporaries are needed, and we will discuss options to find what is best for each person.
