Porcelain Laminate Veneers

I’ve been in practice here in Western New York for over 30 years, but I’ll bet you didn’t know that I was one of the first dentists in Western New York to offer porcelain laminate veneers back 30 years ago.

Why did I do that? Because I was trained in San Francisco at the University of the Pacific, which was a state-of-the-art cosmetic dental school. We learned cosmetic dentistry well before many other dental schools were even teaching cosmetic dentistry, including porcelain laminate veneers.

I’ve been doing these for three decades. I’ve done thousands and thousands of porcelain veneers and smile makeovers for so many patients, and I love doing porcelain laminate veneers. In fact, today I cemented 15 of them just today. They’re the greatest procedure to improve your appearance in one or two short visits. ‘

Porcelain laminate veneers are a very thin layer of porcelain that’s bonded to the surface of the tooth, almost like a false fingernail is put on your finger, but the thing about the porcelain is it’s so thin and so strong and durable that once it gets bonded to the tooth, it’s almost impossible to damage the porcelain; it’s so strong. You can come in for a free cosmetic evaluation. Whether you have some spaces between your teeth, if your teeth are crooked, discolored or chipped, or uneven, or you have large fillings in your teeth, porcelain laminate veneers can change the way you look and change the way you smile for the rest of your life.
