Before After  

Porcelain veneers (sometimes referred to as laminates) can change an entire smile.  Porcelain laminate veneers are quick, painless, and dramatic.  They can change shape, color, size, and arrangement of teeth or any combination of these factors.  They can be used as an alternative for orthodontic treatment.  The best part about porcelain laminate veneers is that they can be placed in two visits.  The technique consists of first shaving a thin layer of outer tooth structure (about the thickness of an eggshell).  An impression is then taken of the prepared teeth and is sent to a dental laboratory.  In the lab, a ceramist will make very thin porcelain facings consisting of all the changes in shape, size, color and teeth arrangement that are needed to have a great looking smile.  At the second visit, the laminates are bonded onto the prepared teeth with a white light gun.  The bonding material acts as an adhesive for the laminates.  Porcelain laminates are the most popular technique used for dramatic smile makeovers.
