Q: What are porcelain veneers?

For a good reason, porcelain veneers are among the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments at Aesthetic Smiles Dentistry. Few treatments create a more dramatic transformation than dental veneers. 


When you admire the seemingly perfect smiles of celebrities and public figures, it’s often a great set of veneers you’ve noticed. Thanks to advancements in dental technology, veneers are now far more affordable and accessible to many more people. 


Veneers are incredibly thin, tooth-shaped “shells” that fit directly over the surface of your natural teeth. The high-quality porcelain materials used in veneers have the same slightly translucent appearance as tooth enamel. 

Q: What are some cosmetic issues porcelain veneers
can improve?

Some of the issues porcelain veneers can correct include:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Fractured teeth
  • Discoloration not treatable through teeth whitening
  • Irregularities in the shape or size of teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Minor misalignment

When compared to the expense of having numerous treatments to address more than one aesthetic issue, dental veneers offer a great return on your investment. 

Q: What steps are involved in getting porcelain veneers?

Once you and your dentist decide that dental veneers fit your needs, you arrive for your visit and rest comfortably in the treatment chair. Aesthetic Smiles Dentistry strives to make every visit enjoyable with Netflix, music, blankets, and neck pillows. 


An injection of numbing medication ensures you remain comfortable from start to finish. Your dentist begins by removing a small portion of your natural tooth enamel to make room for the veneers. A set of impressions gathers information on the specifications of your prepared teeth, and the dental lab relies on this data to craft your custom veneers.


Your dentist places temporary veneers to protect your prepared teeth until your permanent veneers arrive. At that point you return to the office to have your veneers checked for appearance and fit. Cementing the veneers in place completes the treatment, and your new smile is ready to share with the world.
