Veneers are a cosmetic dental treatment, used to improve the appearance, shape, color, and alignment of the teeth.  This process involves bonding ultra-thin shells of porcelain to the front of your teeth in order to improve the look of your smile with little to no anesthesia. Veneers can be a great alternative for those uncomfortable with orthodontic treatment.

We take great pride in achieving beautiful results for our clients. Each client is unique and brings forth different expectations and functional needs. We take the time to study your bite and smile before the veneer treatment and discuss the process, so that we can deliver beautiful and long-lasting results.

Advantages & Benefits of Veneers

Veneers are able to help your teeth look natural and healthy without going through more extensive treatments, like crowns. Since they are very thin and held in place by a strong dental adhesive, very little preparation of the tooth is required. As a plus, veneers are also extremely stain resistant.
