Custom Shells Capable of Enhancing Any Smile
Porcelain veneers are durable, custom made, natural looking covers that are bonded to the surface of teeth. Appearing as an undeniably perfect, and healthy natural smile once set in place! Often utilized to repair chipped, decayed, or even stained teeth, veneers are also effective in reshaping a tooth or securing gaps throughout a smile. They can sometimes be chosen instead of crowns; especially for patients seeking a simpler approach to cosmetic restoration. To prepare the tooth for a veneer, a minimal amount of enamel is ground down to accommodate its placement. Not to worry though, this procedure is less invasive than a typical filling.
What Are The Advantages Of Same-Day Veneers?
Before the technological advancements were introduced, obtaining veneers was a grueling process of 2 to 3 appointments and required the patient to wear uncomfortable temporary veneers. Fortunately, thanks to new techniques developed and the equipment we’ve invested in, getting veneers is more seamless than ever before.
Same-Day Veneers offer the following advantages:
- Utilizing an efficient, accurate, and comfortable digital 3D scan, there is no longer a need for messy impressions.
- Complete treatment in as little as just one simple visit.
- The preservation of more of your natural tooth structure, due to less drilling being required thanks to modern advancements in the procedure.

Lay the Foundation.
To clear out space for your veneer, a thin layer of enamel is removed from the surface of your tooth. While the amount of enamel removed is trivial, the area is still numbed to prevent this process from being felt at all. We then take a highly accurate digital scan of the treated area; no longer having to rely on the usage of messy impressions or awkward large trays in your mouth!
Set in Stone.
A 3D scan is used to create a detailed digital model of your veneers. They are then milled right on location with our custom in-house technology, perfectly bonding these new glistening shells onto your teeth permanently. Depending on the quantity of veneers you require, the entire process can be completed in as little as one appointment.
