Questions and Answers About Porcelain Veneers

Question: What is a porcelain veneer and what does it do?

Answer: A veneer is an extremely thin shell crafted out of multiple super-thin layers of porcelain. These ceramic casings will allow you to completely customize the look of your smile.

Question: How will porcelain veneers improve my smile?

Answer: By gathering your esthetic preferences, such as tooth shade, tooth size, tooth shape, and more, we will custom design each veneer. We will then place them over the visible part of each tooth to transform your smile. This cosmetic treatment will also allow you to fill spaces between teeth, create the illusion of a more aligned smile, and will result in a much more uniform grin.

Question: How do I know if I qualify for porcelain veneers?

Answer: For the most part, your oral health will need to be in good standing. In addition, it is important that you feel fully informed regarding veneers – in some cases, you may discover you simply require a less complex treatment (such as teeth whitening) rather than receiving a full smile makeover. We will determine candidacy during a cosmetic consultation with you.
