Veneers Create The Perfect Smile



Veneers are custom-made tooth colored porcelain laminates designed to cover the front portion of your tooth and are generally recommended to improve the following dental conditions:

Spaces between front teeth
Cracked or chipped teeth
Slightly crooked or poorly shaped teeth
Permanently stained teeth
Worn teeth

Veneers are customized to match the color of your existing teeth—or you may choose to create a whiter smile by combining tooth whitening with your new veneers. Spaces between teeth can be closed, stains and cracks disappear! In many cases, you can have a great smile with perfectly straight teeth in a matter of weeks instead of the years required when straightening teeth with braces.

Veneers require more than one appointment to complete. During the first appointment the tooth is carefully prepared and contoured. An impression of the prepared tooth is taken to create your veneer. The custom veneer is fabricated in a laboratory using the shades and shapes we prescribe. A return visit is required to bond your veneer to the front of your tooth. Once completed, your veneers will feel like your own teeth—only better! Stains, chips and crooked teeth disappear and you're left with a great looking smile and healthy, natural looking teeth.
