Porcelain Veneers

What are porcelain veneers?

Veneers are a cosmetic dental method for improving the shape and color of your teeth, using a thin, porcelain overlay that bonds to the surface of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are durable, long-lasting, and offer a less expensive alternative to crowns.

Veneers don’t benefit the health of your teeth or treat oral disease, but they do improve the appearance of your smile and can boost your confidence dramatically. Veneers look like your natural teeth and typically last for several years before needing to be replaced.

With veneers, you should maintain your regular oral hygiene routine, including daily flossing and brushing, and annual dental cleanings. Consistent oral care helps prolong the life of your veneers. 

Why should I get porcelain veneers?

Because veneers are strictly cosmetic, your dental team may suggest you consider veneers if your teeth are healthy but are:

  • Crooked or misshapen
  • Chipped or worn
  • Stained or severely discolored
  • Too small or too large
  • Uneven
  • Spaced unevenly or have gaps

Veneers can help your smile appear instantly more balanced, even, and vibrant, with no downtime or pain. Porcelain veneers resist stains due to coffee, tea, or wine, helping you maintain your smile for years to come.

What does getting porcelain veneers entail?

To get a new set of veneers requires two visits, one to create impressions of your teeth and one to place your veneers. During your first visit, the Serenity Laser Dental PC team takes digital impressions of your teeth and also assesses the natural color of your teeth. 

If needed, your dental team may smooth the surface of your tooth using laser dentistry techniques before making an impression. A trusted dental lab creates your new set of veneers, using advanced technologies that produce the most natural-looking results possible. 

You return for your second visit, and the dental team applies the veneers to the surface of your natural teeth using a specialized adhesive and exposure to ultraviolet light to harden the bond. The process is painless, and you leave with an instantly more radiant smile.
