Porcelain Veneers or laminates are thin egg-like shells that are custom fabricated in a dental laboratory by a skilled ceramist and then bonded on to tooth structure. They are used to:

  • Improve color
  • Repair chipped or broken teeth
  • Eliminate spaces (close gaps between teeth)
  • Enhance the appearance of teeth discolored because of root canal treatment, tetracycline stains, excessive fluoride, and/or large composite resin fillings
  • Lengthen worn teeth
  • Correct smile defects (irregularly shaped teeth)
  • Improve shape of dental arch (misaligned teeth)
  • Improve the alignment of the dentition- Crooked teeth and crowded teeth

The procedure involves reducing a small portion of the tooth enamel on the face of the tooth. An impression is then taken and sent to the laboratory to create custom made facings which are then bonded to the tooth structure. Veneers will provide you with an outstanding natural appearance.

They can be placed over stained and damaged teeth that show the effects of wear from coffee and tobacco use; when placed artfully, they will mask these unattractive teeth and create a smile makeover that will reflect beauty and brilliance.
