If you’d like more dramatic changes to the shape, length, spacing or color of your teeth, we’ll use dental veneers, or laminates, to bring you the results you desire.
Veneers (or laminates) are thin shells of durable porcelain that are bonded to the front of a tooth. The process typically takes two to three visits to complete, whether you do a single veneer or multiple ones, and can dramatically change your smile. During the first visit, we take photos and models and create a custom wax-up of how your teeth will look. Your teeth are then prepared, impressions and bite relationships are taken and temporaries are fabricated. The temporaries will mimic the final result, so you can go home, look at your smile and discuss any changes you may want. Our ceramist will then shape and colorize each individual dental veneer, and during the second visit they are tried in and further refinements can be made to their shape or color if needed. Our in-house dental lab is fully equipped so the ceramist can make refinements while you wait; optimizing aesthetics and minimizing the number of times you’ll need to visit our office. Once you’re happy with the way your mouth looks, we will bond them to your teeth with safe, long-lasting cement.
