Porcelain Veneers: Case 2
This woman changed her smile with 8 upper porcelain veneers and 6 lower porcelain veneers.
If you have minor dental imperfections that disrupt the symmetry of your smile, Dr. Cummings provides durable, highly aesthetic porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin porcelain shells that can conceal misalignment, stains and discolorations, shape and size inconsistencies, and the over appearance of the anterior (front) teeth. At our on-site dental lab, a skilled ceramist can create custom porcelain veneers in just one week, which is half the time required to have veneers created offsite. Dr. Cummings will create a wax mock-up so that you can preview your new smile before the procedure.
Unsure about undergoing treatment with porcelain veneers? Composite veneers are an alternative that can help you decide if a permanent enhancement is what you want. In a single appointment, composite veneers provide instance change, helping you achieve a consistent color, shape, and size in the appearance of your front teeth. Dr. Cummings applies a custom-shaded composite resin on the front surfaces of the teeth to create an appearance of symmetry and health. A special curing light hardens the resin in minutes. Finally, Dr. Cummings polishes the resin to achieve a beautiful, natural-looking appearance. Composite veneers require no alteration of your teeth and can be removed at a later date if you choose.
It is not uncommon to convert composite veneers to porcelain veneers. This woman had her composite veneers for 5 years and was tired of the discoloration.
