porcelain veneers

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front side of teeth. They are an option for correcting stained, chipped, decayed or crooked teeth. Porcelain veneers are made by our dental lab, working from a model provided by us.  Because it's necessary to remove a small amount of enamel from your tooth to accommodate the shell, placing veneers is usually an irreversible process. We may recommend that you avoid some foods and beverages that may stain or discolor your veneers such as coffee, tea or red wine. Sometimes a veneer might chip or fracture. But for many people the results are more than worth it. Paying close attention to the fit and function of your teeth is of supreme importance when placing veneers.  Simply applying them without regard to how your teeth function will virtually guarantee future dissatisfaction.  When we design veneers, we take into account the unique movement of your jaw, your esthetic desires of what you'd like to achieve, and design a natural, real-looking smile for you.  If you have any questions about veneers ask us!!
