Porcelain VeneersPorcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for conservatively improving your smile. As a cosmetic dental procedure, veneers create a brighter, whiter smile composed of more ideally aligned and shaped teeth. The quality of today’s porcelain veneers provides a more natural look than what has been available to past generations. This allows a beautiful and natural looking smile.
Porcelain veneers have the ability to solve several of your cosmetic concerns regarding your smile and existing teeth. These include:
- Chipped, worn and uneven teeth
- Worn enamel due to erosion or abrasion
- Discolored teeth that do not respond to bleaching
- Closure of small spaces or gaps between teeth
- Some genetic conditions that affect the color or shape of the teeth
Porcelain veneers require several visits in our office. Initially patients have a consultation to determine their esthetic desires. Next the teeth are prepared and an impression is made. Once the veneers are fabricated they will be fit and bonded to the teeth.
Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. Quad City Prosthodontic Specialists place veneers routinely and design each case individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient’s smile.
