Porcelain Veneers Q & A


Wear A Smile You
Can Be Proud Of


What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin “shells” that fit over the surface of your natural teeth to correct a wide array of aesthetic concerns. They are a great way to achieve dramatic improvements in a relatively short period of time, and without the need for braces, crowns, or other cosmetic options.

Porcelain veneers are completely customized to conform to your aesthetic goals. No two sets of veneers are exactly alike, and you might be surprised at just how stunning your new smile is after receiving a new set of veneers.

How can veneers improve my smile?

Porcelain veneers help you achieve the smile of your dreams by correcting common dental problems, including teeth that are:

  • Discolored
  • Misshapen
  • Misaligned
  • Broken or chipped
  • Gapped
  • Worn

Porcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry option. When you admire the “perfect” smiles of many celebrities, you’re very often admiring a gorgeous set of veneers.

Am I a good candidate for porcelain veneers?

Getting porcelain veneers requires several visits with Dr. Yampolsky. During your initial consultation, she examines your smile and gathers imaging to determine the full scope of your restorative and cosmetic needs.

If you have areas of active decay, she corrects those before moving forward with veneers.

What’s it like to get porcelain veneers?

Once our teeth are healthy, Dr. Yampolsky creates your individualized treatment plan by considering your face shape and aesthetic goals — you play an active role in designing your new smile.

Next, Dr. Yampolsky removes a very small amount of your natural tooth enamel to make room for the veneers. A local anesthetic ensures you remain comfortable during this process.

A set of impressions are taken to give the dental lab the information needed to craft your custom porcelain veneers. You receive a set of temporary veneers to wear until your next appointment. Dr. Yampolsky partners with an excellent dental ceramist with a reputation for creating gorgeous, natural-looking veneers.

Once your veneers arrive, you return and collaborate with Dr. Yampolsky to ensure a proper fit and optimal coloring. The shade of your new veneers can be adjusted with colored dental cement. Once you’re both pleased with the look of your new smile, she bonds the veneers into place.
