How Porcelain Veneers Improve Smiles

Porcelain veneers conceal and cover flawed areas of a smile. This procedure produces the appearance of straight teeth free of chips, gaps, cracks, and permanent stains. Dr. Whitman may suggest veneers to patients who will benefit from a total smile makeover.

The process of creating a stunning smile transformation with veneers is non-invasive and usually only requires two office visits. Veneers are constructed from fine, high-quality porcelain and are made in a dental laboratory just for you. A veneer is a shell-like, tooth-shaped piece of porcelain that will be bonded to the front side of a tooth. Once our team has determined that porcelain veneers are right for your needs, Dr. Whitman will take impressions of your teeth to evaluate the precise specifications needed to create your veneers.

Veneers are a permanent cosmetic enhancement. Because of the care Dr. Whitman takes to ensure that each veneer fits each tooth properly and because of the materials used to construct them, veneers will look natural. Porcelain has properties that are very similar to the natural composition of a tooth and even reflects light the way a tooth does. Veneers are also very resistant to stains.

After receiving veneers, patients enjoy a straight, beautiful smile. Many patients experience emotional and psychological benefits as well because they are no longer embarrassed or self-conscious about their smiles.
