Porcelain Veneers An Overview
Porcelain veneers are a long-term cosmetic solution for enhancing your smile. Whether you want to address a single damaged tooth, or are seeking a more comprehensive smile makeover, dental veneers can be used to create a balanced, beautiful smile.
Dr. Caleb Robinson helps patients customize their smiles with modern porcelain veneer restorations. His eye for facial aesthetics, advanced training, and compassionate manner give him the unique skill set to create natural looking dental veneers that complement your appearance. Dr. Robinson may recommend dental veneers alone or as part of a phased treatment plan for a total smile makeover.
What are dental veneers?
A dental veneer is an ultra-thin porcelain shell that fits over the front and sides of a tooth. The shell is custom designed and used to improve the appearance of the smile and to protect the tooth from potential future damage.
Dental veneers are made from high-grade dental porcelain designed to mimic the natural luster of tooth enamel. Dr. Robinson custom crafts the veneer to fit the shape, size, and color of your adjacent teeth. The veneer is permanently bonded to the affected tooth and blends seamlessly with your smile.
Dental veneers can be used to restore:
- Misshapen teeth
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Missized teeth
Dental veneers can last for upwards of 25 years with proper oral hygiene and routine visits to your dentist. Dental veneers are considered a permanent dental restoration and require the removal of a minimal amount of tooth enamel to make space for the veneer to sit evenly with adjacent teeth. For patients with growing smiles, or who are looking for a more temporary solution to cosmetic dental concerns Dr. Robinson may recommend dental bonding.
