Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells that are permanently bonded to the surface of teeth. They are typically used to eliminate unwanted imperfections, such as gaps, stains, chips, or misshapen teeth.

Made from durable, high quality materials, porcelain veneers help create natural looking smiles that patients can be proud of. Dr. Yip has used porcelain veneers as a treatment option since opening his practice, and takes the time to understand your aesthetic goals to determine what type and style of veneer will work best for you. During your first visit, he will examine your smile and discuss your expectations to ensure the end result is a comfortable, natural addition to your smile.

To prepare for the procedure, small amounts of enamel are removed from each tooth that requires a veneer. Then Dr. Yip takes an impression of your smile and prepares your teeth for temporary fittings while your permanent restorations are being created. It will take approximately 2-3 weeks for your new restorations to be ready.

Porcelain veneers are aesthetically pleasing and blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. With proper care and maintenance, they will last for a very long time. If you have minor imperfections in your smile that need to be fixed, you could benefit from porcelain veneers.
