What Are Dental Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells that adhere to your teeth. Veneers are a great option for improving your smile because they can hide a variety of flaws. They are also unobtrusive and installing them is a relatively simple process.

Dr. Johnson is a skilled dentist who’s artistry and attention to detail allow him to plan and place your dental veneers, helping you to attain your perfect smile. At our practice, we understand that each patient is unique, and we want to help you design the smile that will most please you!

What Types of Flaws Can Dental Veneers Cover?

The following are a few of the issues that we can take care of using a dental veneer:

  • Discolored teeth.
  • Worn teeth.  
  • Chipped or broken teeth.
  • Irregularly shaped teeth.
  • Teeth that are uneven or misaligned.
  • Teeth with gaps between them.

Will My Dental Veneers Be Noticeable?

Once we’ve bonded the dental veneers to your teeth, they will be invisible to the untrained eye. In fact, one of the reasons why we highly recommend dental veneers is because they blend in with your natural teeth seamlessly. Another benefit of dental veneers is that they are highly resistant to staining.

Are Porcelain Veneers Durable?

If you are willing to take good care of your dental veneers, they can last for many years. We also promise to do our part by providing you with veneers that are crafted from high-quality porcelain. We’ll make sure that they are bonded strongly to your teeth and shaped to fit perfectly.

Never use your teeth to open things, and contact us immediately if you notice a breakage. If there is an issue we can often simply replace the affected veneer.
