Porcelain Veneers-Laminates

If you have discolored and stained, chipped, cracked, slightly misaligned teeth, or have metal fillings, you may want to consider porcelain veneers. To see what your smile would look like with veneers, we recommend you review our extensive before and after gallery.  We customize each smile to each person. There are many things we talk to you about and discuss to make the perfect smile for you.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

A porcelain veneer is a thin ceramic shell that  is custom crafted under magnification in a dental laboratory. While your new veneers are being fabricated you will wear a natural looking temporary that will resemble your projected result. Typically veneers are completed in 2 visits over 3 weeks.

They are then bonded directly to the front surface of the teeth to create a perfectly shaped, absolutely gorgeous smile. 

Veneers can be made as thin as a contact lens

Veneers can correct many aesthetic dental problems, including:

  • Stains or Discoloration
  • Misalignment or Crookedness
  • Spaces Between Teeth
  • Chips and Cracks
  • Sharp, Fang-like Appearance
  • Other Imperfections
