What are Porcelain Veneers?
These are thin shells of porcelain — a material that mimics your enamel — affixed to the front teeth to conceal your smile flaws. Modern-day dental veneers are so thin, 0.3mm – 0.5mm, meaning the procedure is minimally invasive when shaving down your enamel.
Dental veneers are so versatile and can be used to correct numerous dental flaws, including:
- Stained teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Worn out, chipped, or cracked teeth
- Gummy smiles
- Slightly crooked teeth
- Permanently stained teeth
All these dental treatments can be fixed at once, and you don’t need years of treatments. Typically, porcelain veneer treatment can be completed within two months.
The Dental Veneer Treatment Process
Dr. Colby Smith uses an artistic approach to fit your veneers. When we create a smile for you, it’s unique for your mouth — no two pieces of art are the same. There are no standard shapes and sizes of veneers fabricated to fit into any smile. Everything is made from scratch after an initial evaluation of your smile.
In the initial consultation, we discuss your goals and answer your questions. If we agree veneers are the way, we shave down a small amount of your enamel and then take your smile impressions and create molds to help you visualize the outcome. Once you choose the template you like, we send the images to a dental lab to create your veneers. Meanwhile, we will install temporal veneers to protect your smile.
When your permanent veneers are delivered, we will use dental cement to bond them permanently onto the teeth. Minor adjustments will be made to ensure your bite feels great and the veneers match the surrounding teeth.

Veneers are thin handcrafted porcelain shields worn on the front of the tooth which improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or worn. Veneers are 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.
