Improve your smile with Porcelain Veneers!
The word Veneer means to cover something that doesn’t look nice with a more desirable looking surface. If you have anything that you don’t like about the way one of your front teeth looks, it can be covered over with a beautiful, life-like veneer of Porcelain.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain Veneers are thin sheets of porcelain that are ideally colored and shaped that can be bonded onto the front of your teeth. Once permanently bonded onto your teeth, they can give you the beautiful, white perfect smile you have always wanted. To schedule a NO CHARGE porcelain veneer consultation click HERE.
What Problems Do They Correct?
How are they Made?
A thin amount of enamel is removed from the front of the teeth that are to be covered by your new veneers. A mold is taken of your teeth and temporary veneers are placed over your teeth. Two weeks later, your beautiful, white perfectly shaped porcelain restorations are permanently bonded to your teeth.

How long do they last?
Many factors can determine how long they will last. Probably the most important is the way your upper and lower teeth fit together. If the teeth that bite against the Porcelain Veneers hit against the Porcelain in a way that is traumatic, it can shorten the life of the veneers. Clenching or grinding of your teeth can also crack and break Porcelain Veneers. Dr. Tamura can perform an evaluation of your bite to see if Porcelain Veneers can be placed in your mouth in a way that is harmonious with your existing bite.
No special maintenance procedures are necessary. Just brush and floss them like you do your regular teeth and see our hygienist on a regular basis for your routine cleanings and they will last a long, long time.
