Porcelain Veneers

You’ll get a chance to view different smiles.

A great way to improve your smile can be found with veneers. A veneer is a very thin layer of porcelain that is fixed over the front of your teeth to alter their size, color or shape to blend in best with the rest of your smile. Veneers can close a gap, and hide stained, crooked or chipped teeth.

Dr. Palani has extensive experience in placing veneers and in cosmetic dentistry in general. He understands how to create a natural, beautiful look that is also lasting and healthy.

His process includes custom shade matching when he is trying to match a veneer to your natural adjacent teeth. This process creates a beautiful yet natural-looking smile that can help to improve your self-esteem.

With a natural appearance and durability, a porcelain veneer offers you an aesthetic, new smile. One that is stain resistant and will last for years. In your free consultation Dr. Palani will discuss your options with you and suggest the type of veneer that’ll work the best for you.

Creating your new smile with Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers

Dr. Palani helps you choose the exact shade of your new teeth.

After talking with you about your objectives for your smile, Dr. Palani will take low-dose digital x-rays and give you an oral exam. Then he’ll take impressions of your teeth to create study models to in order to determine exactly how to place the teeth for the most natural look that matches your objectives, personality and your appearance.

Next he’ll use special guides to help you select the shape and shade of your new teeth. There are many different “looks” your new veneers can give your smile. Like a Hollywood smile. That’s a look that is straight with white square teeth. Or he can give you a look that matches your natural teeth.

Custom Shade Matching

When Dr. Palani needs to match your veneer (or a crown) to adjacent natural teeth, an option he provides is custom shade matching. A natural tooth is not one shade all the way through, and Dr. Palani works with an expert from his local lab to color map your natural tooth so that your veneer will exactly match.

Minimal-Prep Veneers

Porcelain Veneers

Dr. Palani uses a very strong porcelain to make contact lenses thin veneers.

New developments have made the porcelain used for veneers strong enough to be made wafer-thin. Previously, a veneer required the shaving down of the natural teeth and anesthesia. Veneers placed this way were irreversible.

Dr. Palani uses high-grade, strong porcelain, which has superior aesthetics and a bright, translucent look. He also uses top-quality labs for the best outcomes.

Cosmetic Bonding

Dr. Palani usually recommends porcelain veneers because of their greater stain resistance and durability. But if porcelain veneers are out of your price range, an affordable alternative is cosmetic bonding. This involves utilizing a very thin coat of tooth-colored composite resin that’s bonded onto the front of your teeth in order to smooth out any imperfections. However, while less expensive, cosmetic bonding isn’t as strong or as stain resistant as a veneer.
