Extensive cosmetic needs are often treatable by porcelain veneers, rather than a combination of other cosmetic treatments. They also provide substantial coverage for patients experiencing severe cosmetic damage. As a result of their long list of benefits and natural appearance, veneers offer a long-standing smile makeover for those in search of a dramatic smile transformation.

About Porcelain Veneers

Planning and Prep

Crafted out of extremely thin layers of porcelain for a lifelike finish, veneers are ceramic shells – or casings – that fit over the portion of your tooth that shows when you smile. To provide you with custom-fitted veneers according to your smile preferences, we will begin by prepping your teeth during your first visit. Dr. McElravy will buff away less than a millimeter of your enamel, the outermost layer of your tooth, to promote a wonderful fit. We will take impressions of your prepped teeth, which we will send to a dental lab. A highly experienced ceramicist will create veneers based on your smile’s dimensions, as well as alterations we have agreed upon for your improved smile, such as tooth shape, color, size, and length.

Placing Your Veneers

During your follow-up visit, we will temporarily place your porcelain veneers over your teeth to assess their fit. After making any necessary adjustments, we will then bond the veneers to your teeth to complete your smile transformation.

Veneer Benefits

They Improve Many Imperfections

Porcelain veneers offer suitable cosmetic improvements to a diverse array of patients, improving the following:

  • Discoloration or stains
  • Awkward tooth shape or length
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Chips or cracks
  • Minor misalignment
  • Textural concerns

They Are Durable and Long-Lasting

Porcelain veneers are prized for their strength. Second to the incredible durability of your natural teeth, veneers may withstand pressure, resist staining, and require the same care you provide for natural smile for cosmetic improvement that lasts for many years.
