Porcelain veneers are very thin shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth. Our dental veneers are made with CEREC technology. By using 3D images of your teeth, these dental veneers can be made to fit your teeth exactly. Porcelain veneers are made by CEREC to match the exact shade of your teeth, so they will be completely unnoticeable once they’ve bonded.

At McCullough Dental, we are passionate about beautiful smiles that endure. Once placed, porcelain veneers gorgeously cover unseemly cracks, holes, stains, and gaps in or between teeth—and they do it for a lifetime.

What Advantages Does the CEREC Method Offer?

CEREC is an extremely fast, accurate method of creating veneers. By using 3D computer imaging and manufacturing, CEREC can create veneers that fit your teeth exactly. Best of all, this technology allows us to create your veneers on the same day of your appointment.

You might be worried this diminishes the quality of the veneers, but it doesn’t. CEREC-made porcelain veneers are just as pearly, sturdy, and enduring as traditionally-made veneers. There’s simply no reason to wait to get that dream smile of yours!

Should I Consider Getting Teeth Veneers?

We like to consider ourselves dental artists at McCullough Dental, so veneers are one of our favorite cosmetic treatments. Their flexibility allows us the creativity to create an attractive new tooth design for our patients. There are plenty of reasons to consider getting porcelain veneers, namely:

  • Whitening: Veneers can match the color of your enamel perfectly for a stained tooth, or you may choose a full set of lighter-colored veneers to give you a uniformly white smile.
  • Shaping: Porcelain veneers can help adjust the appearance of teeth that are cracked, crooked, broken, or misshapen.
  • Spacing: Veneers can close unwanted gaps between your teeth when our dentist molds the veneers into the ideal shape to fill out your teeth and make your smile whole.

Perhaps one of the best advantages of veneers is that they are multi-purpose. You can get teeth whitening, straightening, and restorative work all done at the same time!

What Is the Process of Getting Porcelain Veneers?

At McCullough Dental, the porcelain veneer process is straightforward. We view each patient as a member of our family, so we cater our services specifically to their needs.

With that in mind, here’s a general overview of what the veneer process looks like:

  1. First, you and your dentist will have a conversation about whether dental veneers are right for you. If you both decide it is, then we will take scans of your teeth so we can design a veneer to fit your unique smile.
  2. Before bonding the veneer to your tooth, the dentist will make sure the veneer fits the space and matches the color of your other teeth.
  3. Next, the dentist will clean your teeth. This will let the veneer adhere more strongly to your teeth. We will also need to file down a small layer of your tooth enamel to ensure a slimmer, more natural fit.
  4. Dental cement is then applied, which your dentist will harden with the help of a specialized ultraviolet light.

After that, your teeth veneers are finished! With proper care, they can last upwards of 10–15 years.

The best part is, they don’t require any special attention! Veneers act as a part of your natural teeth. You just need to brush and floss your teeth every day like normal, and you can keep your now straight and sparkling smile for a long time to come.
