What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are unique dental restorations that cover just the front of your teeth. They are thin and realistic-looking and can improve a wide variety of aesthetic conditions. How many veneers you will need depends on certain factors like the size and shape of your smile. Our goal is to create a beautiful, seamless appearance to your smile.

We create your porcelain veneers to match your face, gender, and the shape of your teeth. Each veneer will have the translucent appearance of natural teeth.

Porcelain veneers can address almost any aesthetic problem with the appearance of your teeth. Veneers can improve teeth that are:

  • Crooked
  • Misshapen
  • Shortened
  • Stained
  • Worn
  • The wrong size
  • Mismatched

With veneers, you can have a beautiful, uniform smile that is both functional and comfortable.

Your Cosmetic Procedure

In order to make room for your porcelain veneers, Dr. Kay will polish some of the enamel from your teeth. This also allows for a less bulky appearance and an airtight bond with your restoration. It also means that your veneers are a permanent commitment.

You and Dr. Kay will discuss how you would like your smile to look, and he can make diagnostic wax-ups so you can see what your smile will look like before you make your final decision. We will work with you to make sure that you have a smile that looks great, feels great, and functions like it’s supposed to.

Caring for Your Porcelain Veneers

Like all dentistry, the best way to ensure longevity is to take excellent care of your teeth. That means keeping your gums healthy and keeping your teeth free from decay. Daily brushing and flossing routines combined with regular professional exams and dental cleanings will help you prolong the life of your veneers.
