If you are considering pursuing a complete smile makeover, porcelain veneers are an excellent option. By replacing only the front-facing portion of your tooth, a veneer can cosmetically conceal major or minor inconsistencies within your smile. Chips, cracks, gaps, or bleach-resistant stains can be concealed using porcelain veneers. Additionally, patients with severely misshapen teeth can completely alter the appearance of their smiles with porcelain veneers. Patients can get one veneer or a mouth full of veneers depending on their cosmetic and budgetary goals. A cosmetic consultation with one of our experienced doctors will help you get a better idea of what porcelain veneers will do for your smile.

Do porcelain veneers require an invasive procedure?
No, porcelain veneers do not require an invasive procedure. Unlike dental crowns, which replace the entire exterior of your tooth, a porcelain veneer only replaces the front-facing portion of your natural tooth. This means that only a small amount of enamel will need to be removed to make space for the veneer. Most patients can undergo the porcelain veneer procedure without experiencing any pain or discomfort.
Can I whiten a porcelain veneer?
No, porcelain veneers will not respond to whitening treatments. If you are considering whitening your smile, we encourage you to undergo this treatment before pursuing porcelain veneers.
