Imperfections addressed by porcelain veneers
One of the best things about porcelain veneers is their versatility. Not only can they be used to hide a wide range of cosmetic issues, but they can be used on a single tooth or all the teeth visible within the arch. Sometimes called laminate teeth, veneers are commonly used to cover:
- Minor gaps between teeth
- Cracks or chips on teeth
- Permanently discolored teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Teeth that are misshapen
- Worn down teeth
The porcelain veneers process
The first step on the path to your new smile is a consultation. During this appointment, Dr. Moran will discuss your specific issues with your smile, your desired results, and answer any questions that you may have about the procedure. Once we determine that porcelain veneers are best suited for your needs, we can move forward with the process. It is important to note that teeth need to be healthy before receiving porcelain veneers. Any issues of decay or disease will need to be addressed prior to beginning the veneers process.
Preparing your teeth for veneers requires removing a small portion of the enamel. This is so the veneers do not stick out once they are bonded to the front of your teeth. Next, impressions are taken of your teeth and sent to a lab along with specifications for custom-fabricating your veneers. Finally, when they are ready, you will return to the office where Dr. Moran will check the fit and appearance before bonding them into place.

Veneers are thin, hand-crafted porcelain shields worn on the front of the tooth which improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or worn. Veneers are as thin as contact lenses and are an aesthetically pleasing option of closing gaps, lengthening teeth and providing symmetry to make your smile more natural. Veneers are intended to last for many years without changing color. They are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry. Ask your dentist if veneers may be right for you.
