Completely Rejuvenate Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers
When you have a beautiful smile, it is easy to share it with others. Unfortunately, chipped, stained, or crooked teeth can compromise your confidence in your appearance. The good news is these common cosmetic imperfections can easily be addressed with porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are very thin ceramic shells that fit over the front surface of your teeth. Veneers can be used on one or more teeth to conceal a number of imperfections, rejuvenating your smile and self-confidence.

A Versatile Treatment
Porcelain veneers can conceal a full range of blemishes that can undermine the beauty of your smile. Veneers have become incredibly popular in recent years for their ability to camouflage:
- Crooked or misaligned teeth
- Gaps in a smile
- Discolored or stained teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Teeth that are small, malformed, or misshapen
If you identify with any of these aesthetic concerns, porcelain veneers could be the solution.
Placing Your Veneers
During your initial visit, Dr. Jeppson will perform an examination and discuss your cosmetic dental goals. A great deal of detail goes into creating the right treatment plan for patients to ensure their long-term satisfaction. If he determines porcelain veneers are the right therapy to meet your needs, Dr. Jeppson will prepare your teeth and gather information for the fabrication of your veneers.
First, Dr. Jeppson will remove a very small amount of enamel from your teeth to accommodate the veneers. To determine the exact size, shape, and color of your veneers, Dr. Jeppson will take impressions of your teeth and gather detailed instructions. This information will be sent to our outside dental lab, so the skilled technicians can begin crafting your customized veneers. We are proud to use IPS e.max® porcelain, which provides incredible durability and a lifelike sheen similar to natural enamel. You will typically be provided with temporary veneers until your next appointment.
Your veneers will take a few weeks to fabricate. Once they are ready, you will return to our office to have them placed. First, Dr. Jeppson will ensure that the veneers are the correct shade and shape to complement your smile. He will then carefully fit them over your teeth, and make any needed adjustments. Finally, he will use a special adhesive to secure the veneers in place. Following this simple visit, you can leave our office with a rejuvenated, camera-ready smile.
Instantly Boost Your Smile
For many patients, porcelain veneers have become the preferred cosmetic dental treatment when they consider all of the benefits veneers have to offer. Veneers provide:
- A nearly instant smile makeover
- A uniform, improved look to your entire smile
- Comprehensive enhancement when combined with other procedures, like teeth whitening
Veneers require minimal tooth alteration compared to other treatment options, like dental crowns. And compared to orthodontics, veneers can quickly correct the appearance of misalignment problems.
