Veneers are just a thin shell of porcelain that goes over your teeth, depending on the situation. If teeth are just discolored, sometimes it's a very, very minimal operation. If teeth are rotated or crowded, we have to do a little more tooth reduction, but it's very minimal. It's much less tooth reduction than doing the full coverage or a crown on a tooth. It does make people look younger, and feel younger, and feel better with that nice, bright white smile. Everybody wants whiter teeth today, and that's one way to do it with a permanent solution. The bar's been raised. Everybody wants whiter teeth today, and one way we can do that is with veneers.
Because it's very predictable. We can pick out a color that's appropriate for their skin for their hair and for their age. Everybody's different. Somebody with dark skin and dark hair, their teeth are going to jump out more than somebody who is very fair skinned or blonde. We do what's appropriate for that patient. The goal again is to make them look natural, but nice and white too.
Dental veneers can conceal many imperfections like chips, cracks, stains, small gaps, and misshapen teeth. They can make worn-down or short teeth look longer. They can sometimes even be an alternative to orthodontics treatment!
Our veneers are produced at Valley Dental Arts, a dental lab that uses only the best materials and technology for dental restorations like veneers. Because the lab is located near our office, you can actually work with one of their ceramists. Your veneers will perfectly match your smile!

Dental Veneers or Crowns, Our Dentists Can Help You Decide
Veneers aren’t the only dental restoration that can fix a multitude of smile flaws. Dental crowns can conceal some of the same problems, including cracks and worn-down teeth. Our cosmetic dentists will help you decide which restoration is right for you based on several factors, including:
- Extent of your dental damage
- Number of teeth involved
- Location of teeth you want to improve
- Your budget
Veneers are less invasive than crowns, as our dentists will need to remove just a small amount of enamel from your teeth to prepare them for placement. They work well in areas of your mouth where crowns aren’t always a good option, such as your front teeth.
