Porcelain Veneers

veneers

Veneers are a fantastic way to fix front teeth. You can whiten your teeth, close spaces, and create a great smile. In fact, veneers can address all of the following dental issues:

  • Spaces between the teeth (diastemas)
  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Unsightly, stained or washed out fillings
  • Permanently stained or discolored teeth
  • Misshapen or crooked teeth
  • Whiten dark, yellow, or stained teeth

Porcelain veneers are also the answer for instant orthodontics to straighten smiles, close spaces, reshape, and accomplish minor realignment of your teeth.

There are several varieties of porcelain veneers and porcelain restorations that can be used depending on the type of cosmetic change desired and the patient’s dental condition. Veneers are very thin and are bonded on the front of your anterior teeth. These veneers are about 0.3mm to 0.5mm in thickness but are very strong once bonded to your teeth. They have a “life like” appearance with the strength, beauty, and durability only porcelain restorations can afford. Expected longevity is 15 to 30 years, depending on patient care. The results are instant and spectacular!

Many times, we combine bleaching with porcelain veneers to make that perfect smile. If some front teeth are already badly broken down, we can place new all porcelain crowns combined with veneering and other cosmetic techniques. As always, talk with Dr. Wood and discuss the best plan to give you that smile you have always wanted.
