Quickly Achieve a Flawless Smile

If transforming your smile in just two appointments sounds too good to be true, you may be the perfect candidate for porcelain veneers. Dental veneers are thin shells of durable porcelain, custom-made to fit over teeth with cosmetic flaws and give you the dazzling smile you deserve. Veneers can give you years of function and beauty, whether you’re masking a single tooth or creating a glamorous, Hollywood-ready smile.

Porcelain veneers are a safe, non-invasive cosmetic treatment that can resolve many cosmetic issues. Boost your confidence and smile freely with teeth that will turn heads.

The Porcelain Veneer Process

During your consultation, Dr. Berchelmann will take digital images of your teeth to ensure your veneers will fit your mouth exactly. To mask a single tooth, he’ll craft porcelain shells that match the color of your existing teeth and look completely natural. For a full smile makeover, he can create the perfect white teeth of your dreams.

At your next appointment, Dr. Berchelmann will prepare your teeth for your custom porcelain veneers. He may need to remove some of your existing enamel so the shells don’t extend past your natural teeth. Then, with a special dental adhesive, he’ll affix your veneers to each tooth for a permanent bond.

With that, your procedure will be complete and your new teeth will be ready to show the world. We recommend brushing with a non-abrasive toothpaste and a soft toothbrush, in addition to flossing, so you can enjoy many years of confidence in your beautiful smile.
