What are porcelain veneers made of?
Porcelain veneers are an ultra-thin shell made from high-quality ceramic. The ceramic material will have similar properties to natural tooth enamel, reflecting light in much the same way.

What can porcelain veneers be used to change?
Porcelain veneers are often the most suitable option for permanently addressing a range of cosmetic concerns or tooth damage. Dr. Butler may recommend them for:

  • Gaps between teeth.
  • Discolored teeth considered resistant to teeth whitening, or for permanent whitening.
  • Misshapen teeth, or teeth that appear too long or too short.

Porcelain Veneers What to Expect

Dr. Butler will meet with you and thoroughly evaluate your oral health before recommending porcelain veneers. During an initial consultation, Dr. Butler will take the time to listen to your goals and educate you on any underlying dental problems that could affect your long term outcome if not addressed as part of your overall treatment.

The first step in the process for placing porcelain veneers is to design your new smile and to prepare the teeth. Dr. Butler will remove a small amount of surface tooth structure to accommodate the placement of the veneers. Once this is done, dental impressions will be taken for use in the creation of your new veneers. Typically, we will place temporary veneers while you wait to protect the teeth and allow you to get used to the look and feel of veneers.

Dr. Butler will permanently attach the new veneers, making adjustments as needed for a comfortable bite and proper fit. The surface is polished and sealed for a natural luster and smooth texture. Dr. Butler will go over how best to care for your new porcelain veneers, emphasizing the importance of daily brushing, flossing and regular visit with us so that we can monitor the condition of your restorations.
