Porcelain Veneers

Reshape your teeth for a beautiful smile.

  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Unsightly gaps between front teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Rough or jagged edges on front teeth
  • Teeth that are too small or large in proportion to rest of the mouth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Worn teeth

The Hows and Whys of Porcelain Veneers:

A porcelain laminate (often called an veneer) is a thin shell of porcelain or lithium di silicate that covers the front of each tooth. They bond directly to the front of the tooth, similar to the way artificial fingernails work. Each porcelain laminate is a work of art, carefully crafted in a laboratory to fit your individual smile.

The Benefits of Veneers:

Dr. Roslund and his highly skilled technician can provide an incredibly natural beautiful smile with porcelain laminates. They are durable and long-lasting when compared to composite bonding techniques.

Disadvantages:

Although they are highly durable, porcelain laminates are not permanent. Well crafted laminates will last many years, but will eventually need to be replaced.

Alternatives:

Porcelain laminates are an excellent investment. However, they are not appropriate for teeth with excessive decay. In those cases, porcelain crowns are the only alternative. In the event that you desire only to improve tooth alignment, orthodontic treatment may be another alternative.
