Porcelain Veneers

Overview

A veneer improves the appearance of a tooth by covering the visible front surface with a custom made, tooth-colored porcelain overlay.

A veneer is often prescribed for a tooth that is:

  • Discolored or stained
  • Worn down, chipped, or broken
  • Misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped

It may also be prescribed to “fill the gap” between two otherwise healthy teeth.

Patient Experience

After a thorough exam of your teeth, gums, and supporting bone structure, Dr. Lason will discuss the treatment and answer any question. Upon agreed treatment, the doctor will:

  • Apply a local anesthetic to the affected area of your mouth
  • Remove a small amount of enamel from the front and edge of your tooth to make place for the veneer
  • Clean and polish the tooth’s surface
  • Bond the veneer in place to permanently affix it
  • Expose the veneer to a special hand-held light to harden the repaired surface of your tooth
