Porcelain Veneers

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers (sometimes called porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are most often used to correct slight imperfections such as, color, shape, size, length or small gaps. Using a strong adhesive the porcelain veneer shells are easily bonded to the front of your teeth. Once your porcelain veneer is properly positioned a special light beam is used causing the adhesive to harden and cure very quickly. The porcelain veneer procedure can quickly improve the overall appearance of your teeth and give you the confidence to smile again.

Experience and knowledge utilizing the latest advanced techniques are necessary for a successful porcelain veneer restoration. The correct preparation of your tooth for your porcelain veneer is essential. This important step creates room for the porcelain veneer to fit within the mouth while restoring natural tooth function and creating a better appearance than the original tooth. Choosing the proper color and shape of your porcelain veneer is also technique-sensitive and special consideration should be given to your natural tooth color as well as the tone and color of your face and hair. As an experienced Prosthodontist, (the specialty of full-mouth restoration and correct oral function) Dr. Wesley has the extensive training necessary to achieve the porcelain veneer result you deserve.

Same-Day Veneers

Porcelain Veneers are routinely used to fix:

  • Discolored Teeth possibly caused by: root canal treatment; stains from tetracycline or other medications, excessive fluoride; or large resin fillings that have discolored the tooth
  • Worn down or uneven front teeth
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped teeth
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Teeth that do not respond well to teeth whitening or power bleaching

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers:

  • Since porcelain veneers are individually sculpted for each patient, it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between a veneer and a natural tooth.
  • Unlike natural teeth, custom-made porcelain veneers resist coffee and tea stains, and cigarette smoke because they are made of high-tech materials.
  • Gum tissue responds well to the porcelain material used to create veneers.
  • With porcelain veneers, as opposed to crowns, your natural teeth remain largely intact with only a minimal amount being altered to fit the veneer.
  • For teeth that resist whitening, veneers can make even the darkest teeth appear bright white.
