We partner with the world’s top ceramists to create custom-made porcelain veneers to correct the form, appearance, and function of discolored or misshapen teeth.
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain designed to mask the appearance of chipped, discolored, or misaligned teeth. They are placed over the front surfaces of teeth, giving them a clean, even, and natural appearance that compliments each individual’s smile aesthetic.
Are you a Candidate for Veneers?
- Chipped, discolored, misaligned, and severely stained teeth.
- Mildly crowded teeth or mildly spaced teeth
Your Veneers can be completed in four to five appointments
Photographs are taken of your face, smile, and teeth. Together, we will establish smile goals and your preferred esthetic. We will develop a treatment plan with the use of interdisciplinary approaches to bring you the smile you desire.
Impressions will be taken at this visit to make molds of the teeth. These molds will be sent to our dental ceramist to design a customized wax version of your smile goal.
Two weeks after our initial consultation, we minimally prepare the teeth if necessary, and transfer the wax up to the patient’s mouth. This is our test run to test out our mockup to see how they look and feel with your new smile.
Any necessary adjustments to your new smile are made at this time and a final impression is taken to fabricate your customized veneers. You will go home in temporary veneers that will mimic the final result.
Two weeks later, the final veneers arrived at our office for a try-in. Your new smile is tried in and evaluated for fit, overall feel, and aesthetics. Finally, your veneers are cemented in!

One month later, we want to see how you’re healing! At this time, the tissue has healed and minimal re-contouring will be done if necessary. Final photos will be taken.
