Dental Veneers

Are You a candidate for veneers?

Porcelain veeners are very thin shells of porcelain which are bonded onto the front side of teeth to make them look more attractive. Although porcelain itself can be brittle, when bonded to a strong understructure such as teeth, it becomes very strong and durable, and it resists staining. Veneers are used typically to improve the appearance of teeth that are misaligned, or have become discolored, worn or chipped.

Porcelain veneers can be a viable alternative to other cosmetic procedures because they do not require the same time commitment as Invisalign or traditional metal braces.

Dental veneers are thin coverings made of durable porcelain that go over your teeth. They are as thin as a contact lens, yet as strong as natural tooth enamel.

Porcelain Veneers from Elmwood Dental Center can be applied in as little as 1-2 office visits. In addition, these veneers can last between 10-20 years! Can you imagine such a short visit with such lasting benefits?

Also, porcelain veneers can be used to simply enhance your smile, or drastically improve serious smile shortcomings. Dental veneers will make a world of difference in your smile, and can be used to remedy a variety of smile problems.
Porcelain veneers can fix the following problems:

  •   Spaces Between the Teeth (Diastemas)
  •   Broken or Chipped Teeth
  •   Unsightly, Stained or Washed Out Fillings
  •   Permanently Stained or Discolored Teeth
  •   Mis-Shapen or Crooked Teeth
  •   Whiten Dark Yellow or Stained Teeth


In this mini-movie, the original teeth were quite discolored and misaligned. After adding veneers, the teeth are nice and white, and look properly aligned. All ready for an attractive, bright smile!




The original teeth in this mini-movie have a pronounced gap, and the bottom edges are irregular, almost chipped looking. With the veneers added, the gap disappears and the teeth are nice and even.
