What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic material that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular.

Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. When placing more than a few veneers a wax up will necessary to change shape and lengthen the teeth.  We place veneers routinely, and design each case individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patients desired smile.

Will they look like normal teeth?

When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea, or even cigarette stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options.

How durable are porcelain veneers?

With proper care, porcelain veneers will brighten your smile for well over a decade.

Dr. Chad will ensure that your veneers are crafted from the highest quality porcelains and are bonded with the most advanced and proven materials available.  Refraining from chewing ice or other hard items or using your veneers to open things will prolong their life, and if accidental breakage or damage occurs, it is usually possible to replace only the veneer involved.
