If you have healthy teeth and gums, but you're not satisfied with the way your smile looks, ask about veneers. Porcelain veneers or "laminates" can help brighten front teeth that have permanent stains or discoloration that can't be whitened. They may be used to correct small gaps between the front teeth, or to fix teeth that are poorly shaped, slightly crooked, or broken. We may recommend veneers to cover teeth that are chipped, worn or eroded at the gum-line from aggressive brushing. Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells made by a master lab technician that we affixes to the teeth in a simple, comfortable procedure that requires just a few appointments. They are fabricated from glazed porcelain. This is the best material available, based on durability, stain resistance and a natural look, but due to the fact they are custom-made by hand, cost for some is a consideration.
Long-lasting results can be considered "permanent" tooth whitening!
Virtually instant gratification.
No long-term orthodontics required.
Won't last forever.
Potential for tooth sensitivity - As you age, non-treated teeth will yellow naturally and may have to be bleached in order to match.
Not reversible and not permanent.
Avoid prescription-grade fluoride, which can stain; discontinue fingernail biting, which can chip or crack the porcelain. If you tend to grind your teeth or play a sport such as racquetball, soccer, or basketball, a professional mouth-guard is strongly recommended. Good oral hygiene and regular dental visits are needed to keep your teeth health.
