What Are Veneers?

Veneers are thin, durable porcelain shells created and customized to fit securely over your natural teeth. They cover the surface of each tooth, masking imperfections in your smile and giving you a new look in only a few easy appointments. Porcelain veneers are popular treatment options because they address mild to moderate dental imperfections without major alterations to teeth and enamel.

Veneer Placement Options

Veneers are a versatile option to help you get the smile you want. We'll tailor our services to fit your needs and discuss the best options for your situation. Placement techniques vary but include:

Single tooth placement: This placement method is recommended when you have one or several individual teeth that stick out as unwanted focal points in your smile. If you're generally happy with how your smile looks except for one or a few areas, we can place a single veneer on a specific tooth or teeth.

Multiple veneer placements: This is generally the more common technique for placing veneers. Multiple veneer placements will involve treating many teeth at once. This technique usually offers a very even and uniform look.

Our dentists will always discuss your options, whether you want single tooth placements all your most visible teeth rejuvenated. We also offer other excellent cosmetic options like teeth whitening or simple Invisalign® treatments that can be combined with your veneer placement services to achieve the desired appearance. We offer services you can trust and will never push any procedures that won't benefit the cosmetic appeal of your smile.

Our Veneer Process

Getting veneers at our practice generally requires three easy appointments. Everyone's smile needs are different, but we've streamlined our process to make it accessible and convenient. The three stages of our process are:

Initial Consultation: We'll begin the process with a thorough oral exam. This exam will involve our dentist taking a detailed look at the oral condition of your whole mouth. After determining if veneers are the best option to enhance the cosmetic appeal of your smile, we'll create impressions that will serve as the model for your dental prosthetics using our iTero® scanner, an advanced intraoral camera ergonomically designed for your comfort.

Preparation & Temporary Placement: At this appointment, we'll prepare your teeth for fitting your veneers. This may involve gently reshaping some teeth to ensure a good fit. We'll place temporary veneers while you wait for our trusted dental lab to craft your permanent restorations. The turnaround for our veneers is generally around one week.

Permanent Veneer Placement: You'll come in for your final appointment when we receive your permanent veneers. We will ensure that your veneers are securely bonded to your teeth and aren't causing any discomfort or bite alignment issues. Once everything is secure and fitted properly, you'll head home with a beautiful new smile!

During the process, we offer wax mock-ups of your future smile should you want to see your projected results before the final placement. This service is available at a nominal extra cost. We will also provide traditional impressions if your situation requires or you prefer them over our digital scanner. As always, we'll discuss your best options and help you come to a decision you're comfortable with.

When Are Veneers a Good Treatment Option For Me?

In certain situations, veneers are the most effective option for restoring your smile. If you have minor misalignments or have tried whitening and it has been ineffective, veneers may be a great option. Veneers can address situations like:

  1. Deep discolorations
  2. Minor damage like chips, cracks, or wear
  3. Teeth that look small or worn down
  4. Unwanted gaps between teeth
  5. Misshapen or uneven teeth
  6. Minor bite misalignments
