What is a porcelain veneer?
Have you always dreamed of having a "Hollywood" smile? Did you know that most actors are not born with those beautiful, straight, bright smiles? Most actors such as Tom Cruise and Hilary Duff have had their teeth enhanced with porcelain veneers.
What Veneers Do
A porcelain veneer is an ultra-thin layer of porcelain that fits over your natural tooth structure to cover imperfections such as:
- Spaces between teeth
- Stains or discoloration
- Excessive wear
- Size discrepancies
- Chipping or fractures
Veneers can even be used to cover slight tooth misalignment issues, helping patients avoid the need for braces.
The process for completing veneers is relatively straightforward, and we can typically complete your new smile in one to two weeks. During your first visit, Dr. Daftary or Dr. Zaner will prepare your teeth for veneers and create temporary restorations for you to wear while your permanent veneers are crafted at a dental laboratory. After one or two weeks, when your final veneers are ready, you will return to our dental office to have your final restoration permanently placed. At this time, our dentists will make any adjustments necessary to ensure that your new smile looks and functions the way you want it.
