Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front and top surfaces of your teeth. They are a good choice for improving your smile and they have become popular due to their simplicity and versatility. With veneers as an alternative to bonding, there is no reason to settle for gaps between your teeth or teeth that are stained, poorly shaped, or crooked. Veneers placed on top of your teeth can correct these conditions and help you achieve a beautiful smile.
When bonded to your teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and they are also highly resistant to staining from coffee, tea, red wines, or cigarettes. Cared for properly, porcelain veneers can last for well over a decade.
Dr. Nogueira and Dr. Ruel will ensure your veneers are crafted from the highest quality materials. The procedures to prepare and complete for veneers generally require three appointments:

The care and follow-up for your veneers includes a follow up visit after one or two weeks. While you may experience some sensitivity to hot and cold after your veneers are placed, this is normal and it should dissipate after a couple of weeks. Our staff will educate you on proper cleansing techniques to insure a healthy, beautiful new smile!
