WHAT IT IS
Many people dislike their smile. They are embarrassed to smile for pictures, and they cover their mouths when laughing. Sometimes people misjudge a person as unfriendly just because the person doesn’t smile very much.
Cosmetic dentistry using veneers can be life-changing for many individuals. A veneer is an extremely thin shell of porcelain that bonds to the front of a tooth (enamel). Our dentists use veneers to change the shape, color, size and symmetry of the teeth and smile.
In cosmetic dentistry, porcelain is the material of choice because it replicates human enamel the most naturally. We use porcelain systems which are recognized as the best available in cosmetic dentistry today. In the right hands, each system is capable of achieving beautiful results, and we will help you decide which system is best suited for you.
Porcelain veneers are a conservative treatment, and can improve the color, shape, symmetry and overall appearance of your smile. Porcelain veneers are not just for elective purposes. While they are the “gold standard” treatment for improving your smile, they are also used to replace old mercury fillings, fix cracked and broken teeth, and replace enamel that has been worn down over time.
