The goal of porcelain veneers is to provide optimum aesthetics for the smile, while also helping to improve occlusion. Since each veneer is customized per tooth, it is critical that these restorations not only blend naturally together or alongside existing teeth, but restore the most ideal size and shape of the tooth or teeth. By using Digital Smile Design software, we can design each new tooth digitally as they relate to each other and facial aesthetics as a whole. This process removes any guesswork during the design process and enables us to show you a digital representation of what your teeth will look like before treatment begins! When you are satisfied with your new smile, the porcelain veneers will be created and then bonded to your teeth. Veneers require that a small portion of tooth enamel be removed before they are bonded to ensure that they fit naturally into your smile without appearing bulky.
