Porcelain Veneers

Cosmetic Dentists in Las Vegas, Summerlin, and Henderson, Nevada

Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of ceramic material. Normally, porcelain is very brittle. But when it is bonded to a tooth with special gel, it hardens and becomes remarkably like a real tooth in strength and appearance.

Porcelain (or “ceramic”) veneers are not false teeth. They are shells that cover only the front of an existing tooth. Porcelain veneers are very common and can be used to cover virtually any type of cosmetic damage to the front of a tooth.

Porcelain Veneers are natural looking

There’s a misconception that porcelain veneers make your teeth look large and white. Chances are, however, you’ve seen many people with veneers and never even noticed. In reality, the ceramic shells are so thin, and their coloring is so precise, people will only notice how beautiful your new smile is. The goal is an improved smile, yet one which is based on the natural shape of your teeth.

Placing Veneers is a painless, straight-forward procedure

It takes about three appointments over the course of a month:

  • An initial exam
  • An appointment where a mold of your mouth is created
  • The application of the custom-made veneers

Porcelain Veneers are durable

The porcelain veneers are bonded to your teeth with special dental cement. The porcelain looks and feels like a real tooth, while the cement gives the porcelain the strength of a real tooth. There really is no special upkeep for your veneers – in fact, they don’t stain as easily as real teeth. Just treat them (hopefully) as well as you do the rest of your teeth, and they should last for years to come.
