Porcelain Veneers: Before

While porcelain veneers are suitable in many cases of cosmetic dental improvement, the first step is your consultation appointment with our caring office team. We’d like to learn about your ideal smile, and assess your overall health and your oral health. We can perform restorative procedures, such as filling a cavity or making sure your gums are healthy, before applying your custom-fitted veneers.

Porcelain Veneers: During

Porcelain veneers are a minimally invasive procedure, and we will start by taking careful measurement of your teeth. The veneers can be shaped to close small gaps and give uniform shape, color and size to mismatched teeth.  We remove a thin layer of enamel from the front side of teeth receiving veneers, to assure a comfortable and natural-looking fit. The custom-crafted veneer is placed on the front of the tooth, and permanently bonded into place.

Porcelain Veneers: After

There is little down-time after veneer placement. You should care for veneers the same way you care for the rest of your teeth. That means twice daily brushing, daily flossing and attending cleanings and checkups twice a year. Porcelain can stain over time, just as tooth enamel can, so limiting deeply colored foods and drinks is advised, when possible. One of the best after-veneer activities is enjoying the brilliance of a new smile.
