Veneers — a great option for aesthetic improvement.

Dental VeneersIf the entire front of the tooth needs to either be repaired or cosmetically improved, porcelain veneers can be an option. A veneer is an overlay with a thin layer of a strong and esthetic porcelain. We can use porcelain veneers to achieve very natural looking results in changing the color, shape, length, alignment and spacing of your teeth.

Veneers typically require two appointments; the first visit is needed to prepare the teeth by removing a small amount of tooth structure from the front surface of the teeth and then an impression is taken so a model can be made. The case is sent to the lab. At the second visit, the veneers are tried in, cemented and adjusted to perfectly fit you.

We always do a cosmetic model of your present teeth. This allows our professional laboratory to create “wax models” which represent how we anticipate your teeth and smile will look when completed. This allows you to be closely with the doctor in determining your new smile and achieve the results you both desire.
