Not all beautiful teeth come from Mother Nature and not every pearly smile you see was achieved through whitening alone. Porcelain veneers can enhance the color, shape, and position of your teeth and smile. In some cases of mild crowding or tooth positioning concerns, veneers can provide an instant orthodontic result. Veneers provide long-lasting whitening and are more stain resistant than other restorations. You can count on the artistry and technical precision of Lee Dental Centers’ highly trained dentists when planning your cosmetic dental treatment.

Porcelain Veneers FAQ
Do you have to drill on my teeth to apply veneers?
Although the preparation of the tooth will be as conservative as possible, most cosmetic veneer cases require preparing or removing some tooth structure so that your new smile will have a natural, esthetic contour. We want your new teeth to look like you, only better. Preparing teeth allows us to avoid bulky, over-contoured, unnatural looking veneers. Because veneer procedures are irreversible, our doctors will make sure you understand all cosmetic options for selecting the method that will deliver the best results.
Should I whiten my teeth if I want veneers?
The veneer is made of porcelain, and the shade will be selected by you and your dentist. Whitening prior to any cosmetic procedure allows you to select a lighter shade for your restorations that will blend and match any visible natural teeth. Porcelain restorations, created in lab, are color stable and will not respond to whitening products like our natural teeth do. It is important to consider the long-term shade you want for your smile prior to your veneer or cosmetic procedure.
