Ceramic or Porcelain Veneers

A Beautiful New Smile With Natural-Looking Veneers

A veneer is a thin ceramic or porcelain facing that covers the front of your tooth, changing its size, shape or color. Veneers can solve cosmetic concerns, such as cracked or chipped teeth, small gaps between your teeth, slightly crooked or misaligned teeth, small or poorly shaped teeth or teeth that are resistant to whitening agents. If you have been unhappy with the appearance of your smile, veneers could be the answer you’ve been looking for.

Dr. Andersen is an experienced cosmetic dentist with extensive training in the aesthetic aspects of dentistry. Making smiles look better is a central part of her approach to dentistry, and she puts great care into improving the appearance of her patients’ smiles. She has perfected her planning and preparation for veneers over the years so that she is able to obtain beautiful, natural-looking results.

Veneers can also help lengthen the shape of teeth and serve as an alternative to braces.

Premier dental lab for top-quality results

For the best quality in veneers, Artisan Dental partners with one of the country’s best aesthetic dental labs. Our lab provides superior veneers made from top-quality porcelain with a very beautiful and lifelike appearance. Ceramic veneers are created by a master ceramist and can take one to three weeks to craft. During this time, Dr. Andersen provides you with temporary veneers to wear, which provide a beautiful smile until your permanent veneers are ready to be placed.

What Can Be Accomplished With Porcelain Veneers?

Many problems with your teeth can be solved with porcelain veneers:

  • Restoring worn or chipped teeth
  • Fixing stained or discolored teeth, including those with tetracycline staining
  • Closing spaces between teeth
  • Lengthening teeth
  • As an alternative to braces

Your Route To A Beautiful New Smile

Designing your smile

Your new smile design starts with external photos of your face and smile, at all angles. We take impressions of your teeth and prepare an exact model that mimics both the appearance and function of your teeth and gums.

Digital representations are used to provide an example of how your new teeth will look.

The new smile is designed using the photos and the model of your teeth. Before creating your veneers, Dr. Andersen will show you how your new smile will look on a digital representation. Any changes you want will be made, and once you are completely satisfied, detailed instructions are sent to our high-quality cosmetic lab to fabricate the veneers.
