Not everyone has a naturally perfect smile, but with porcelain veneers, no one will be able to tell! Forget about chips, cracks, gaps, or uneven teeth with this realistic, easy-to-care-for, and affordable cosmetic solution. Learn more about porcelain veneers below!

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

At Smiles Dental, we create custom-made porcelain veneers to correct a wide array of cosmetic dental flaws. This includes closing spaces and gaps between teeth, whitening stained teeth, improving the appearance of irregularly shaped teeth, correcting teeth that are slightly crooked, and restoring teeth with chips, fractures, or wear and tear. Veneers are made from thin sheets of porcelain or resin. They are extremely realistic and can be made to perfectly match your tooth shade and size for a completely natural look.

Porcelain Veneers Procedure

You will first have a consultation with us to evaluate whether or not dental veneers are the ideal solution for you. Our team will then take impressions in order to create veneers that are perfect for your smile. Once your veneers are ready to go, we will bond them directly to your teeth. Sometimes we have to shave down your natural teeth to accommodate your veneers. Because both porcelain and resin are realistic and stain-resistant, you can be confident knowing that your veneers will look just like natural teeth!

Caring for Porcelain Veneers

You can care for porcelain veneers just as you would natural teeth—but it’s important to make sure that you brush and floss daily and avoid biting down on too many hard foods in order to keep them in good shape. Porcelain veneers can last up to 25 years if taken care of properly.
