Our experienced cosmetic dentist, Dr. Michael Wei offer porcelain veneers as an innovative solution to treat number of dental issues that can affect self-confidence, including chips, gaps, discoloration and misalignment. Made up of thin shells of ceramic material, porcelain veneers are custom-designed to look and feel like your natural teeth. This virtually painless procedure can help you achieve long-lasting results and significantly enhance the appearance of your smile.

- Improved appearance of chipped, fractured, stained, uneven and worn teeth
- Aesthetically pleasing appearance
- Protected tooth structure
- Custom-designed to match your natural teeth
- Highly resistant to staining and discoloration (more than natural teeth)
- Minimal pain or discomfort
- Can be used to strengthen weakened or cracked teeth
- Can be used to whiten even the darkest teeth that resist traditional whitening methods
- Improves teeth affected by chips, gaps, misalignment, stains and discoloration
How Porcelain Veneers Work:
If you have gapped, chipped, stained or misaligned teeth, you can get them repaired for a complete “Smile Makeover” with porcelain veneers. Each porcelain veneer is designed to complement your smile, and improve your appearance by providing you with a dazzling white smile almost “overnight.”
“Porcelain tooth veneers” are thin shells of handcrafted dental porcelain that are fitted over front teeth to repair smiles and bites. The porcelain veneer treatment usually involves just two visits and is completely painless:
- First, Dr. Wei examines your teeth and considers your existing dentition and bite, as well as your skin tone, features, length of your teeth, facial structure and face shape. During your first visit, many times he will take impressions for a diagnostic wax-up. This is used as a blueprint for your final smile – something you can visualize. The next visit, the teeth are prepared by removing a small portion of enamel to allow for the thickness of the veneers and to ensure a strong seal. An impression is then taken and prepared to send to the lab where the porcelain dental veneers will be created. Then a trial smile (temporary veneers) will be made to give you a “test drive” of your new smile. At this time, Dr. Wei can make changes to your smile before the permanent veneers are bonded to the teeth. Your new porcelain dental veneers are usually returned to our office within two weeks.
- The second visit is when the temporary veneers are removed and the new porcelain veneers are placed on the teeth. Porcelain dental veneers provide a strong, safe, and durable solution to stained, cracked or crooked teeth.
