How porcelain veneers can enhance the smile

Porcelain veneers from Dr. Eric Wiitala are a great solution for patients who have imperfections near the front of the smile that they want to address quickly and easily. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain material that can cover these concerns with a natural-looking restoration. Porcelain is a material chosen for its close appearance to natural tooth enamel. These restorations, as well as others that are made by our team, are matched in color, shape, and size with remaining teeth to ensure a beautiful finished result!

Porcelain veneers are a solution many patients enjoy. Because of the way in which they are fabricated, they are custom-created for each patient based on their smile’s current condition. These strong, smooth, and tooth-like restorations can disguise several concerns, including teeth that are:

  • Gapped
  • Broken
  • Chipped
  • Worn down
  • Irregularly shaped
  • Permanently stained
  • Misaligned

What is the process of obtaining porcelain veneers?

Our team first starts with an evaluation, during which our team will determine if the patient is a proper candidate for porcelain veneers. Then, preparations are made. The dentist will file down the front of the tooth before taking impressions of the natural tooth. The porcelain veneer is made at a laboratory with information from the dentist and the finish molds, and patients return at a later time to have the porcelain veneer bonded onto the prepared tooth. The veneer will last several years with proper care and regular dental cleanings and evaluations.
