Unlock the Potential of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers, alternatively termed “dental veneers” or “dental porcelain laminates,” are wafer-thin shells of porcelain permanently bonded to teeth that are discolored, worn, chipped, or misaligned. Porcelain veneers are non-porous (they will not stain), incredibly resilient, and “kind” (non-abrasive) to opposing teeth. When firmly bonded to a sturdy substructure like a tooth, it becomes very strong and durable. Porcelain veneers are an excellent option for correcting various dental imperfections, such as discolored, crooked, or chipped teeth.

A traditional veneer is essentially a conservative crown. Rather than encompassing the entire tooth, a cosmetic veneer covers the visible part of a tooth, preserving a large amount of the natural tooth structure. They can straighten, lengthen, and whiten teeth to provide a beautiful smile and even create a more comfortable bite position. For optimal results, each veneered tooth must be shaped. This means that a thin layer (approximately .5 mm) of the natural tooth structure is refined to allow space for placement. If this is something that may be a possibility, Dr. Priya Uppal can advise on how to best get started.

The Dental Veneer Procedure: Experience Our Ultra-Conservative Approach

We prioritize your comfort and satisfaction by employing an ultra-conservative approach. Our focus is on preserving the integrity of your natural teeth while providing you with the stunning smile you’ve always dreamed of. We offer both traditional and minimal prep veneers to cater to your specific needs, budget and preferences.

Traditional Veneers: Meticulous Crafting for a Flawless Fit

For guests who opt for traditional veneers, the process begins with a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Uppal, who will carefully assess your teeth, gums, and overall oral health. Once it is determined that veneers are the appropriate solution for you, a small amount of your tooth’s enamel will be refined to accommodate the custom veneers. We will take precise digital scans of your teeth to ensure that each veneer is crafted to fit perfectly with your individual bite and tooth structure. The final step involves bonding the veneers to your teeth using specialized dental cement, creating a stunning, lasting transformation.

Minimal Prep Veneers: The Ultra-Conservative Solution

For some guests, a less invasive option may be suitable through minimal prep veneers. This method requires little to no removal of tooth enamel, making it an ideal alternative to traditional veneers. Dr. Uppal takes great care to preserve as much of your natural tooth structure as possible, maximizing comfort during and after the procedure. With experience and skill, she assists you in achieving your desired smile without causing unnecessary pain or sensitivity.

Advantages of Dental Veneers & Dental Lumineers

Resistance to staining. A significant advantage is in the nature of their material. Since porcelain is ceramic and therefore glass-like, the porcelain surface will be extremely stain resistant.

Can be used to repair minor tooth imperfections and defects. Teeth that have small chips or whose surface is worn or misshapen are often good candidates.

Can be used to cover over and conceal fillings that have become stained or discolored. Old fillings and previous attempts at cosmetic bonding that have become discolored can be easily corrected.

Can be used to make color changes for teeth that have permanent stains. Some teeth are naturally discolored. This includes teeth that have tetracycline, fluorosis staining, and those that have darkened as a result of physical trauma or root canal treatment.

In some cases they can be used as alternatives to orthodontic treatment. They can be used to close the space (called a “diastema”) between a person’s teeth. In cases where teeth are slightly crooked to extremely crooked, they can be used to create an instant orthodontics effect.
