What are porcelain veneers?
Veneers are customizable pieces of porcelain that are placed on the front of teeth to alter their shape, size, or color. They are one of the most versatile cosmetic dental solutions because they can address a vast variety of imperfections, such as:
- Chipped teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Permanently stained teeth
- Uneven tooth lengths
- Worn teeth edges
During your initial consultation, we will accomplish several objectives, including:
- Discussing your concerns with your smile along with your ideal results
- A physical examination of the teeth and gums
- Imaging such as x-rays
- Answering any questions, you have about veneers or the veneer process
- Showing you before and after photos to help you get an idea of how veneers can transform a smile
Once we determine that you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers, we can move forward with the process.

The porcelain veneers process
The cosmetic procedure starts when we take impressions of your teeth. These impressions are used to design the size, shape, and contours of the veneers along with the appropriate color. We are always careful to work with our patients on realistic expectations and designing the veneers to give a natural looking smile that enhances but does not distract from natural facial features. We then send all the information to a high-quality ceramist for fabrication.
Once the veneers are ready, you will return to the office for final placement. Dr. Spilkia will check each veneer for proper fit before attaching them to the front of the teeth with a special dental bonding agent. You will leave the office with a brand-new smile that looks straight and evenly placed without ever having to undergo orthodontic treatment. The best part is that veneers can typically be done in just two appointments, making them a convenient option for cosmetic dental treatment.
Advantages of porcelain veneers
When it comes to receiving cosmetic dental treatment such as porcelain veneers, it’s important to consider the benefits. During the consultation process, we will help you decide whether porcelain veneers are right for you. Some of the many benefits to consider are:
- You can have a brand-new smile in as little as two appointments
- Veneers are completely customizable, which means that you can have a say in the color, shape, and contours of your teeth
- Porcelain is a strong ceramic material that resembles tooth enamel for a natural looking appearance
- Veneers are a non-invasive procedure
Taking care of your veneers
Taking care of your porcelain veneers is just like taking care of your natural teeth. Make sure to practice good oral hygiene daily, including brushing and flossing, and maintain twice-yearly dental visits. It’s also important to avoid biting down on hard objects or non-food items, as they have the potential to cause veneers to crack.
