What if I told you there was a single cosmetic procedure that could completely transform the appearance of your smile? At Azalea Dental, our team can place porcelain veneers and instantly correct a number of esthetic imperfections. We understand the desire for a beautiful smile is strong, but finding the time to see the dentist for multiple procedures can be difficult. With this esthetically pleasing treatment option, you can achieve stunning results with one procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions About Instant Smile Improvement

How do veneers work?

With this cosmetic treatment, we custom-make a shell of porcelain, which will be placed over the front of a tooth. Held in place with a powerful adhesive, the restoration instantly improves the appearance of the tooth.

Why are they made from porcelain?

Answer: Porcelain actually mimics the translucent nature of tooth enamel, so restorations made using this material have an attractive, lifelike quality. In addition, the material is strong and can withstand bite forces and pressure. Finally, the material is stain-resistant, so your new veneers stay bright and free of discoloration.

What imperfections can veneers address?

Answer: We may recommend a restoration to correct the appearance of minor misalignment and cover up unsightly discoloration. Veneers can also close gaps between teeth and repair ones that have become chipped or cracked. Finally, should a tooth be malformed or worn down, we can use a restoration to correct it.

How are they placed?

The process begins with tooth preparation. We remove a very thin layer of structure to make room for the veneer. Next, we will take a digital impression, which the CEREC machine will use to mill the veneer we design. Once complete, we make sure the new restoration fits properly before attaching it to the tooth. The entire procedure can be completed in a single visit, so you leave the office with a beautiful new smile.
