A healthy smile shows that you have a healthy attitude about yourself. With advances in cosmetic dentistry you can have a perfect smile. Put your best foot forward when you meet the world.

Porcelain Veneers are customized to match the color of your existing teeth. Spaces between teeth can be closed. Stains will disappear. Cracks will disappear. You will have a great smile. You will have straight teeth.

Custom cosmetic veneers will feel like your own teeth. Stains, chips, and crook teeth will disappear. You will have a great looking smile and natural looking teeth.

Dr. Jeffrey Singer recommends Veneers for the following:

1- Spaces between front teeth
2- Cracked teeth
3- Chipped teeth
4- Crooked or poorly shaped teeth
5- Permanently stained teeth
6- Worn teeth

 

Your smile is the first thing everyone notices about you. When it dazzles, you seem more friendly and confident. You can’t send the same message if you smile with your mouth closed or cover your mouth with your hand. Fortunately, Dr. Singer can easily and dramatically change the appearance of your smile with porcelain veneers.

Enhancing Smiles with Porcelain Veneers

A porcelain veneer is a thin, porcelain covering that is laminated to the surface of your teeth with a special adhesive. Since veneers are extremely strong and long lasting, Dr. Singer may recommend them to:

  • Cover up severely discolored or bleach-resistant stained teeth
  • Repair a broken or chipped tooth
  • Change the shape or size of your teeth

While there are alternatives, such as composite resin bonding or cosmetic crowns, Dr. Singer often recommends veneers because they are stronger, brighter, and more stain-resistant than other treatments. Best of all, Dr. Singer creates veneers so natural looking and beautiful that they are unlike any you’ll find elsewhere.

What Makes Our Veneers Different

When we create a veneer, Dr. Singer first takes color shades of your teeth and sends this information to our lab. Through this process, our veneers have up to 32 gradations of color, matched to the natural white of your teeth.

Our veneers are created using Zirconia, an extremely strong and durable material that resists cracks and fractures. Then, up to 42 layers of porcelain from Noritake, Japan are applied over the Zirconia. Dr. Singer uses this type of porcelain because it’s the finest in the world and its consistency matches that of your natural tooth enamel.

Our award-winning ceramicist, who has studied ceramics from masters in Japan, is extremely skilled at creating this effect. Few artisans have his understanding of the color, hue, and translucency of natural teeth.

Finally, our veneers are fired in state-of-the-art ceramic ovens at 1800 degrees F.  The accuracy of this temperature is extremely important to creating beautiful, natural-looking veneers.

How Dr. Singer Applies Veneers

When you need a veneer, Dr. Singer will take an impression of the tooth. He will then reduce tooth structure from the front of the tooth. Once the lab creates the veneer, Dr. Singer will inspect it to make sure that it looks beautiful and natural, and then apply the veneer with a special adhesive. When you practice good oral hygiene and schedule regular check-ups, you can expect your porcelain veneer to enhance the beauty of your smile for many years.

Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory.  They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile.

Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile.  They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions.

As with most dental restorations, veneers are not permanent and may someday need replacement.  They are very durable and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long lasting smile.

Reasons for porcelain veneers:

  • Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile.
  • Crooked teeth.
  • Misshapen teeth.
  • Severely discolored or stained teeth.
  • Teeth that are too small or large.
  • Unwanted or uneven spaces.
  • Worn or chipped teeth.

What does getting porcelain veneers involve?

Getting veneers usually requires two visits to complete the process, with little or no anesthesia required during the procedure.  The teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer.  A mold or impression of the teeth is taken and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and the dentist.

On the second visit the teeth will be cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond.  Bonding cement is then placed between the tooth and veneer and a special light beam is used to harden and set the bond.

You will receive care instructions for veneers.  Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers.
