Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers offer an aesthetically appealing, natural looking smile that is unmatched by other restorative procedures. Veneers are strong, long lasting restorations made of ultra-thin porcelain that are bonded to the front of your teeth. Veneers are resistant to staining, and they allow us to brighten, lengthen, and reshape your teeth. Veneers can be a big part of achieving the smile of your dreams.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers are ultra thin and are permanently bonded to the front of your teeth. These thin shells of porcelain have the ability to dramatically improve your smile. They blend perfectly with your natural teeth, and can help alter the contour, width, length, and color of your teeth.

Porcelain Veneer Process

First, you and the doctor will have a consult appointment to answer all your questions in regards to smile design, review the different options that are available today, and design your smile based on your facial characteristics and the image you want to project. He will then gather some diagnostic information, x-rays, photographs and models of your current smile to aid him in making your new smile. He will do a mock up smile in wax on your models to aid the ceramist during the process.

On the following appointment, the doctor will make the changes necessary to your existing teeth to allow for the final porcelain to fit perfectly. An impression is then taken to allow the master ceramist to create your custom porcelain veneers and Parkside Dental Health will fabricate your temporary veneers. These temporary veneers will give you a preview of your new smile.

Once your permanent veneers are completed, the doctor will be ready to try them in. Before the veneers are bonded into place, the doctor will verify that they fit perfectly, look beautiful and most important, that you love them. Once everything is perfect, he bonds the porcelain veneers into place and your new smile is complete.

Your smile is now something to be proud of. Please see our Smile Gallery to look at some of our many successful smile makeovers using porcelain veneers.

The most important element of an extraordinary smile makeover is the dentist/artist that creates the smile design. In addition, a superior dental lab is one that works with a ceramist that understands the nature of crafting beautiful porcelain veneers. The doctors and the ceramist work together to bring to life the desires of the patient. This cooperation and communication ensures that the smile transformations that we perform are works of art.
