An Overview of Porclain Veneers


 Porcelain Veneers

Do you have chipped, stained, malaligned or mishapened teeth?  Do you have spaces between your teeth?

An easy and natural looking solution would be porcelain veneers and or porcelain crowns.  Below is a real case that was just completed with real and natural results.



Porcelain veneers are one of the most effective and aesthetically gratifying remedies for teeth that are chipped, stained, or even misaligned.  Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are custom made and cemented over the front of your teeth to change their color or shape.   In this case, the patient had two existing crowns that needed replacing with full coverage crowns.  These supplemented the veneers for an overall successful outcome.

Depending on your tooth shape, some veneers do not require much modification of your tooth enamel.  The first visit would entail shaping the teeth, if necessary, taking impressions and fabricating temporary veneers.  The dental lab will then make natural looking, porcelain veneers with the tooth color of your choice.  The veneers are then cemented with a resin bonding cement system to ensure strength and stability.



Porcelain dental veneers can create a beautiful new smile with results that look and feel natural!!!

If you have always wanted to improve your smile with veneers, call for a free consultation with Dr. Johnson or Dr. Chen.
