Veneers are thin handcrafted porcelain shields worn on the front of the tooth which improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or worn. Veneers are thin as contact lenses, and are an aesthetically pleasing option of closing gaps, lengthening teeth, and providing symmetry to make your smile more natural. Veneers are intended to last for many years without changing color. They are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry. Ask your dentist if veneers may be right for you.

Enhancing the smile is easy with veneers

The process of obtaining veneers is simple. First, patients will consult with Dr. Benjamin J. Seaton of Artistry in Smiles to determine if porcelain veneers are right for their needs. In some cases, the dentist may recommend alternative solutions such as dental crowns or composite resin bonding. If a patient chooses porcelain veneers, preparations are made. It requires that the dentist removes a thin portion of the tooth enamel from the tooth’s front before taking an impression or mold. A dental ceramist uses the image to fabricate the final veneer for placement. The dentist may place a temporary veneer over the tooth until the final one returns to the dental office for bonding. The result is entirely natural and beautiful!

Am I a candidate for porcelain veneers?

Most patients who have smiles free from periodontal disease and tooth decay considering aesthetic changes to the teeth near the front of the mouth may be an ideal candidate for porcelain veneers.
