Porcelain Veneers/Laminates

From Average to Outstanding in Just a Few Steps

Many people desire a brighter, cleaner, more attractive smile, but have chipped, stained, discolored, unevenly spaced, or even slightly crooked front teeth. Often, porcelain veneers or laminates can provide these people with a completely new-looking smile in just a few simple appointments. If this sounds like you, we will be glad to help evaluate your specific situation, listen to the exact changes you have in mind, and help you visualize your end results. This may involve a diagnostic ‘wax up’, reviewing photos of similar case outcomes, or using a computer enhancement program to provide you with several options prior to performing the actual procedure.

Fortunately, most veneers can be applied in one or two simple appointments. Afterwards, you’ll just need to clean and floss your new smile daily, visit us regularly for professional care and maintenance, and consider wearing a night-guard to prevent any accidental gritting or grinding pressure while you sleep.

Porcelain Veneers That Do Not Require Removing Painful Tooth Structure

Lumineers or many other similar brands offer terrific cosmetic solution for permanently stained, chipped, discolored, misaligned teeth, or even to revitalize old crown and bridgework. These are porcelain veneers that can be made as thin as a contact lens and is placed over existing teeth without requiring painful removal of sensitive tooth structure (unlike traditional veneers.)

Non-Cosmetic Benefits of Veneers

  1. The strengthen the teeth. Research has shown that a bonded porcelain laminate can significantly strengthen and reinforce a tooth riddled with fractures, chipping and wear.
  2. Porcelain veneers can improve periodontal health. The highly glazed surface is more resistant to plaque that can cause gum disease when compared to resin fillings or rough tooth surfaces.
  3. Porcelain veneers resist the abrasion that can wear down natural or bonded teeth.
  4. Worn down front teeth can also affect speech causing a whistling sound when speaking, porcelain veneers may help restore normal speech when these areas are properly restored.
