Porcelain Veneers

Our dentists working together to achieve one goal – your perfect smile

A beautiful smile can open doors and knock down barriers that stand between you and a truer, richer, fuller life.

Porcelain veneers, also known as porcelain laminates, are thin shells of porcelain applied to the front of the teeth to hide imperfections. Dental veneers are custom-designed shells of tooth-like ceramic material that, when applied over the surface of a tooth, can cover worn tooth enamel, uneven tooth alignment or spacing and chips or cracks. Dental veneers fall into the category of cosmetic dentistry because they create a bright, white smile with beautifully aligned, shapely teeth. Even better, the translucent ceramic quality of today’s veneers provides a more natural look than what’s been available in the past. They are often called as INSTANT ORTHODONTICS.

Porcelain Laminate Veneers have revolutionized cosmetic dentistry. They allow us to do magic. Their conservative non-invasive approach to create spectacular smiles within as little as 2 sittings has made them the most popular modem of cosmetic dentistry.

What are some advantages of veneers?

We have many patients select veneers because they:

  • Offer strength and durability
  • Look natural
  • May cost less and take less time than other treatment options
Caring for you Veneers

Dental veneers are long lasting and durable if proper oral health is maintained. See your Dentistry on Worthington dentist for regular examinations and cleanings to ensure the longevity of your veneers and oral health. In the event that your veneers require repair, your dentist will discuss the options available to you.

Patients with dental veneers can significantly reduce their risks for chipping and fractures by not biting on hard objects such as bones or nut shells and by not using the teeth to tear open packages etc. Your dentist will further advise you should you need to avoid eating certain foods that may damage the veneers.

Veneers are much more stain resistant that natural tooth enamel. However it is important to maintain regular brushing and flossing. Also rinsing with water, or brushing after drinking heavily colored beverages such as wine is advisable.
