Enhancing Your Smile and Confidence with Natural-looking Porcelain Veneers

What would you like to change about your smile? Is it the color, shape, alignment, or size of your teeth? Porcelain veneers from Eckland Family Dental can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile. Expertly designed and placed by Dr. Kale Eckland and the team, porcelain veneers present a conservative yet transformative smile enhancement.  

Understanding dental veneers

Dental veneers are super-thin porcelain coverings bonded on the front surface of teeth to transform their aesthetics. While porcelain veneers are widely used, there are instances where your dentist may opt for composite veneers—crafted from tooth-colored material—to achieve similar cosmetic enhancements.

Your dentist can use dental veneers to cover up numerous imperfections, including:

  • Severe tooth discoloration
  • Uneven gaps between teeth
  • Uneven or misshapen teeth
  • Slight tooth misalignment 
  • Chipped or worn-down teeth

Contrary to popular belief, achieving stunning results with dental veneers doesn’t require a lengthy treatment process. In fact, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to learn that it typically takes only 2-3 dental appointments to transform your smile and bid goodbye to those bothersome cosmetic flaws. And the best part? The results are swift and remarkably natural, ensuring you’ll love the outcome.

What’s the process of placing dental veneers

Composite veneers only require one dental appointment because they are placed directly to your teeth. While composite veneers work, they aren’t long-lasting, so they may not be ideal for patients looking for durable aesthetics. That’s where porcelain veneers come in.
 
Unlike composite veneers, you need more than one appointment to transform your smile with porcelain veneers. The first visit involves preparing your teeth by removing a bit of the shiny enamel. We’ll remove about 0.5mm of the enamel to create space for your veneer. Then, we will take digital scans of your teeth and send the records to our partner dental lab to create your customized veneers.  

Until your veneers are ready, we’ll temporarily restore your smile to protect it from infections and injury. When your aligners arrive, you’ll book another appointment with our office for placement. Our dentist will carefully bond your new veneers to your teeth, ensuring optimal fit and alignment.

Many Happy Faces

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.
