Cosmetic Porcelain Veneers

We’re not all born with perfect teeth, and if you cannot wait through the orthodontic process, you may be wondering what other options you have. With cosmetic porcelain veneers, perfect teeth are made possible without the need for braces.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Cosmetic porcelain veneers are custom made porcelain shells intended to cover the front of the teeth for a whiter and straighter smile. Veneers are long lasting and provide the ultimate perfected look.

You May Benefit from Porcelain Veneers If:

  • Your permanent teeth have grown in crooked
  • You are unhappy with the shape of your teeth
  • You want a whiter smile
  • You have gaps that you would like to close
  • You do not want to go through the process of braces

What to Expect When Getting Porcelain Veneers

Before applying the veneers, Dr. Kim first will make an impression of your tooth or teeth the veneers are being applied to. More often than not, your porcelain veneers will be made in a lab, so a second visit will be necessary to have them applied. After the veneer is prepped, it is applied using cement to secure the veneer in place. A tool with a special light is used to harden the cement, which locks the veneer to your tooth.

If you want the perfect smile without the long-term process of braces, cosmetic porcelain veneers may be a good solution for you.
