Porcelain veneers are cosmetic restorations that instantly transform one or more teeth by brightening, aligning, and correcting imperfections such as chips, gaps, worn teeth, discoloration, and slight misalignment. Aesthetic in nature, porcelain veneers significantly enhance the appearance of the smile, while helping to improve oral function. As a cosmetic dentist accredited by the prestigious American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Brian Gilbert has set himself apart in both training and expertise for many cosmetic dentistry treatments, including porcelain veneers. Utilizing this knowledge of technical and artistic elements of porcelain veneers, his treatments consistently bring results that harmonize aesthetically with facial shape and smiles of his patients.
Smiling and talking is a regular part of our day-to-day lives. If you are dissatisfied with how your teeth look and are embarrassed to smile, porcelain veneers can significantly enhance the appearance of your teeth and the aesthetics of your smile. With nearly thirty years of expertise in cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Gilbert is vastly experienced and personalizes your porcelain veneers treatment to your smile goals and functional needs.
The porcelain veneers process involves technical planning and artistic detail to ensure your new smile appears natural and functions correctly. Dr. Gilbert is an expert in smile makeovers and leverages this expertise to design custom treatment plans for each of his patients. During your initial consultation, we will discuss your smile expectations and how porcelain veneers can meet your needs. Next, we modify the tooth enamel by a few millimeters to make room for the porcelain veneers to rest comfortably, without appearing bulky or unnatural. Impressions of your teeth are then taken and sent to our state-of-the-art partner lab, where your custom porcelain veneers are created by experienced ceramists. At your final appointment, we will test your porcelain veneers for correct fit, color, and shape, then bond them securely to your teeth for an instant smile transformation.
