Porcelain Veneers to Mimic Natural Teeth

Porcelain veneers are used not only for super white Hollywood makeovers. Depending on the patient’s preference, we can use porcelain veneers to simply restore the smile back to its original healthy state.

In the case below the patient just wants to have a natural looking smile without the blemishes of decay and old fillings.  Detailed characteristics were built into the porcelain veneers to make them come to life.  In these close-up photos we can see spots of white decalcification, layers of translucency, and intentional surface textures.  Combined with proper tooth length, contour, shape, and proportion, the result is a natural and beautiful smile.  When this patient smiles in real life, it is very difficult to tell that the teeth have been restored.
