A dental veneer is an ultra-thin shell of tooth-colored porcelain or composite that is cemented over the front surfaces of your teeth to correct dental issues including worn tooth enamel, uneven tooth alignment or spacing, tooth discoloration, and chips or cracks. Although veneers fall into the category of cosmetic dentistry because they help makeover smiles with beautifully aligned, shapely teeth, they also boast protective qualities and may eliminate the need for more extensive treatments. ​

Porcelain Veneers:

Long Lasting and Strong

Composite Veneers:

Faster and Cost-effective

Porcelain veneers are a shaped layer of ceramic material that is made in a lab and adhered with dental cement to the surface of your tooth. Porcelain Veneers are not reversible as your natural tooth will need to be shaped to accommodate the veneer. Porcelain Veneers require multiple visits to the clinic as they are done in steps, but can transform your smile in as little as a week. The BENEFIT of this method is that they offer the most natural looking aesthetic and are the longer lasting of veneer options. ​

Composite or chair-side Veneers are done in a similar method as fillings, a composite material is placed directly on the surface of your tooth and sculpted by the dentist. the BENEFIT of this type of veneer is that it can be done in as little as one visit and you can walk out with a newer brighter smile within a few hours! This Method is great if you are trying to correct a smaller area or a specific tooth. Also composite veneers offer a cost effective alternative to lab made veneers.
