In cosmetic dentistry, probably the most common procedure that I do is porcelain laminate veneers. There are different types of veneers: there’s, what we call, 'the no-prep veneer' where we don't have to prep the tooth or do anything to the tooth other than make the veneer to cover up the tooth. Then, there's prepped veneers where we have to alter the shape of the tooth and change the entire shape, length, width of the tooth to create the proper smile. I could think of hundreds of cases where we've changed people's lives by changing their smile. Your smile is one of the very first, if not the first, thing that a person looks at when they're looking at another person, is the smile. Not only for self-satisfaction or personal feelings of happiness, it's also very important out in the business world, in the professional world, to have a pleasing smile, especially if they're working with people.

Enjoy The Benefits Of Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are a fast and easy cosmetic dentistry solution. These customized dental coverings are made of thin, highly durable material to mask many of your smile’s aesthetic issues.
We offer two types of veneers:
- Traditional porcelain veneers, which beautify your smile but require some gentle removal of your teeth’s enamel to ensure a more natural look
- No-prep veneers, which are thinner yet still very strong and do not require any preparation of your teeth, so they are often done in one visit
Either version will enhance the strength of any teeth that may have been weakened over the years, leading to improved oral health and prevention of further issues.

Veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth and can last for many years with the proper maintenance.
