Porcelain Veneers

When you want a beautiful smile fast, porcelain veneers are the way to go.

This cosmetic dentistry solution works for almost anyone, helping hide a variety of issues. At our Santa Fe dental clinic, we have placed hundreds of porcelain veneers for our patients, and we want to help you too.


What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers are thin, porcelain shells that fit over the front of your teeth, obscuring the teeth behind them.

Unlike caps, or crowns, which necessitate filing down your healthy teeth to fit a prosthetic tooth over the top, veneers only cover the part of the tooth that others can see.

Porcelain veneers differ from composite veneers, which are made of a malleable substance that is molded onto teeth and dried with a special light. Composite veneers, however, are not as strong and do not last as long.

What Conditions Do Porcelain Veneers Help?

Many people with yellowed or otherwise discolored teeth opt to get teeth whitening.

It works well and quickly — but is not for everyone. Some teeth are stained too badly for teeth whitening, but porcelain veneers cover stained teeth, so your teeth look beautiful again.

Orthodontics such as Invisalign straighten teeth and close gaps, but orthodontics doesn’t work as well for those who have gaps between many of their teeth. For these people, our dentist can make porcelain veneers slightly larger than their actual teeth, so once they are in place, there will be no more gaps. This technique works for lengthening small teeth as well.

Some people have one or more misshapen teeth. This could be due to genetics or another factor. Porcelain veneers are the best solution for misshapen teeth because they cover them up completely. This does not always work with composite veneers.

Cosmetic Dentistry in Santa Fe

When you are choosing a cosmetic dentistry solution, you want to be sure you will get the result you expect.

The dentist must remove a thin layer of each tooth to make room for the veneers, so you will be fit with temporary veneers while your permanent ones are being created in the lab. At this time, you’ll get a glimpse of how you’ll look with your porcelain veneers.

Not everyone gets a full set of veneers. Some only need one to cover a misshapen tooth. Some get just four on the top to improve the look of their smile. Our dentists carefully match your veneers to your other teeth so no one knows you have veneers — all they know is that you have a beautiful smile!

If you live in the Santa Fe area and are considering getting porcelain veneers, make an appointment today at our dental clinic.
