Transform your smile with cosmetic porcelain veneers in Lawrence

With modern materials and techniques, we have a number of ways to improve the appearance of your smile. One of the most popular is porcelain veneers. They can be used to accomplish anything from minor enhancements, to dramatic makeovers, without extensive alteration to your teeth.

What are veneers?

A dental veneer is simply a very thin layer of beautiful, biocompatible material, adhered to the front of a tooth. It can cover permanent stains, fractures, chips, and other blemishes. Veneers can even visually alter the size, shape, and sometimes spacing of teeth. We can place veneers on one, several, or all of the visible teeth.

Composite resin may be used, though porcelain is considered the best option for several reasons. It mimics tooth enamel very closely, in both strength and appearance. When crafted by skilled cosmetic dentists such as Drs. Les and Kelly Miller, porcelain restorations are indiscernible from natural teeth.

Designing your smile

The first step in the process is a consultation. Your doctor will examine your teeth, and learn about your cosmetic goals, then discuss your options. We never tell you what to do with your smile; we listen to you and work with you to achieve your goals. If you choose veneers, the procedure can be completed right here is our comfortable office.

We utilize the latest technology, including CEREC CAD/CAM milling. What does that mean to you? It means less time and better results! Rather than sending impressions to a laboratory, we can take digital impressions and create your veneers during your appointment. However, if you are uncertain what look you want, we can provide temporary, composite veneers for a “smile trial.” When you are ready, we will replace them with permanent porcelain ones.

Creating your smile

Each veneer is designed individually, using sophisticated software. It is sculpted by the CEREC machine with precision digital accuracy. In most cases, the color is chosen to be an exact match for your other teeth. However, if we are treating all of your visible teeth, you can change the color of your smile to any shade you like!

Because the entire process is completed right here, we can see to all of the fine details, and make as many adjustments as necessary. We will consider factors such as the effect each veneer has on your bite, how well it fits the tooth, and, of course, the appearance. When your veneers are just right for a healthy, dazzling smile, they will be bonded to your teeth.
