What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility.
Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. We place veneers routinely, and design each case individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient’s smile.
Will they look like normal teeth?
When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea, or even cigarette stains. Dr. Olson has been placing veneers for over twenty-five years and has completed extensive classses in cosmetic dentistry involving smile design. he works with a ceramist on the mainland who has done hundreds of cases, just like yours. Even crooked teeth or poorly spaced teeth can be straightened and appear completely aligned with porcelain veneers instantly.
How durable are porcelain veneers?
With proper care, porcelain veneers will brighten your smile many years to come.
Dr. Olson has found that the best material for a long term, durable, beautiful smile is a procelain product reinforced with Leucite particles called IPS Empress ™. This strong porcelain plus proper care, will help ensure the longetivity of your beautiful teeth.
