Porcelain veneers are among the most aesthetic means of creating a naturally beautiful smile. They can be used to create more pleasing tooth contours, close spaces, lighten tooth colour, and more. Patients often worry that porcelain veneers won’t look natural or that we only offer one-size-fits-all results.
Nothing could be further from the truth. When placed by Preston cosmetic dentist Dr. Kaviani, veneers are a conservative solution to designing a new smile that will last for ages. Porcelain has been shown to closely mimic the look of natural tooth enamel, lending veneers a look that doesn’t give away the fact that you’ve had work done.
Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. We place veneers routinely, and design each case individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient’s smile. It takes a highly trained artistic eye, as well as skill level to create beautiful, yet natural looking smiles by using porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are usually the option of choice when creating a big change in a patient’s smile. Porcelain veneers can be used to change colour, shape, size, positioning, and inclination of teeth. A drastic change can be created by using porcelain veneers.

The process for porcelain veneers begins with an initial consultation. During this first visit, Dr. Kaviani will discuss the procedure with you. You will also be able to decide how you want your enhanced smile to look. Please feel free to bring pictures of ideal smiles to your initial consultation. During the second appointment, your teeth will be prepared as needed to allow for a gorgeous new smile.
Next, the dentist will take an impression of the area so that a veneer can be custom made to fit the tooth and enhance its beauty. When your veneer is ready, you will come into our office for your second visit. During this time, your dentist will check the size, fit, and color of your new veneer. If everything is perfect, your dentist will cement it over your tooth.
In the final appointment, the veneer is bonded to the tooth. With proper care, porcelain veneers are extremely long-lasting.
A Durable, Lasting Investment in Your Smile
Veneers have many advantages over other cosmetic procedures. While costlier than cosmetic bonding, they are more durable and stain resistant, and they have a luminescence that mimics the sheen of natural teeth. They also require less tooth reduction than porcelain crowns, so more of your natural tooth structure is maintained, ensuring stronger, healthier teeth.
We take ample time to determine if patients are candidates for porcelain veneers. If there are any additional dental health issues present, they must be addressed before moving forward with veneers or any other cosmetic dentistry treatment.
The cost of porcelain veneers can depend on many factors such as number of veneers and type of dental material and the veneering technique applied.
Porcelain Laminate Veneers
Glamorous or Natural, You Decide!
Many celebrities have veneers, it is true, but not all of us want teeth to look perfectly white and straight. During your consultation, Dr. Kaviani will spend a lot of time discussing what you want in your new smile, choosing the perfect characteristics and colour. Our goal is that no matter how white we choose to make your teeth, they look as life like as possible, mimicking nature but perfecting it.
Porcelain veneers are a very successful option in many cosmetic cases where the original tooth has developed poor colour, wrong shape, and contours. It is also a good choice for fractured teeth, gaps between teeth, and in some situations where the tooth position is compromised and there is a minor bite-related problem.
The use of Porcelain Laminate Veneers is usually minimally invasive and in some cases we can place the latest NO PREPARATION Lumineers onto the natural tooth structure.
There are many tricks to making veneers look like enamel. Blending colours, adding translucency and shaping are all very important. It is not uncommon to see slight variations in the colour of porcelain veneers upon close inspection, as this occurs even in natural teeth.
The Care and Upkeep
Many patients worry that dental veneers will be difficult to maintain, but this is the farthest from the truth. Your porcelain veneers are actually going to strengthen your teeth and be far more resistant to staining than your natural teeth.
You will want to keep up with regular oral hygiene and twice annual cleanings to guarantee that your veneers, as well as your teeth and gums, remain in good condition. Apart from traditional care and regular cleanings, your veneers should not need any further work. Naturally, with time and changes in the mouth, your cosmetic dentist may need to adjust veneers, but most patients enjoy many years of perfect and brilliant white teeth thanks to veneers.
