Veneers are an excellent option for patients who are unhappy with the cosmetic appearance of their teeth. These ultra-thin shells of tooth-colored materials can perfect your smile by masking stains, correcting misalignment, and creating uniformity. The doctor first administers a local anesthesia and then conservatively removes a thin layer of enamel and makes a mold of the teeth, from which the veneers are laboratory-customized. The doctors work with an exceptional team of ceramists to craft the veneers and achieve a beautiful, translucent result consistent with the patient’s natural teeth. Temporary veneers are worn for about one week until the veneers are ready. The doctor then removes the temporary veneers and bonds the veneers to the teeth. The entire procedure is minimally invasive and takes only a couple of visits. Once in place, porcelain veneers look and feel natural and can last for many years.
