We are trained in the art of using porcelain veneers to completely change a smile. Veneers or laminates (facing with porcelain) can be used to alter the size, shape, color and alignment of your existing teeth.

Porcelain Veneers used to treat tetracycline staining
Tetracycline is an antibiotic used to treat a number of illnesses. One of its major drawbacks is that it causes severe staining in teeth if it is used in growing children. These teeth have a gray or dark brown appearance to them. The discolored teeth usually do not respond to any form of whitening and can be the source of much annoyance in a young man or woman.
The picture below shows a typical appearance of what tetracycline staining looks like. The after picture shows a much improved smile with the discoloration completely eliminated. Total length of treatment was approximately 2 weeks.
You can see how dark the teeth are in this view. Also note how the teeth are tilted to one side. This Patient had tried to unsuccessfully bleach her teeth several times.

While veneers may not be the answer for everyone, they can be a miraculous cure for those patients who thought that nothing could be done for their teeth.
Porcelain Veneers Instead of Orthodontics
Porcelain veneers are a perfect alternative to braces. With veneers we can correct teeth that are not aligned correctly and have gaps or spaces.
Older patients who have always wanted straighter teeth but did not want to undergo years of treatment with braces will love this new technique.
Gaps, chips, spaces, crooked teeth can all be corrected in as little as two weeks with veneers.
