Your smile is one of your defining characteristics. If you have teeth that are chipped or stained or have large gaps in between, you may feel self-conscious about smiling or laughing, and will take steps to hide your damaged teeth.

If you are unhappy with the look of your smile, we encourage you to consider porcelain dental veneers. These small porcelain shells are bonded to the front of your teeth to hide damage and stains and damage, as well as close gaps between teeth, so that you can have the smile you deserve.

We first clean your teeth and remove some tooth enamel from the teeth that are receiving veneers. Then, we send an impression of your teeth to a lab to custom craft the veneers before we place temporary dental veneers on your teeth. We want to ensure that your new veneers match the color of your natural teeth to blend in and look beautiful. When the permanent veneers are ready, our dentists lightly etch the tooth surface and uses dental cement to secure the dental veneers in place.

With proper care, dental veneers can last up to fifteen years, though they need to be brushed twice a day and flossed daily just like natural teeth. We encourage you to also see our dentists regularly for dental cleanings and exams. While veneers are strong, they can be damaged if you chew on your nails, ice or other hard objects that can crack or chip the porcelain material. Dark-colored food and drinks can also stain your veneers. Over time, the dental cement can wear away, causing your dental veneers to come loose and fall off. If you experience any problems with dental veneers, schedule an appointment with our dentists right away.
