Porcelain Veneers

If you suffer from chips, stains, or gapped teeth, you may feel self-conscious or even hide your smile. This can limit your quality of life.

At South Ogden Smiles, we provide custom porcelain veneers which can conceal dental imperfections and help you achieve your ideal smile.

Are porcelain veneers the right treatment for you?

Take Your Smile from Ordinary to Extraordinary

High-Quality Materials

Veneers are made from medical-grade porcelain that is carefully crafted in a lab to match the shade, shine, and texture of your natural teeth. These lifelike qualities make veneers virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.

Comprehensive Coverage

While other cosmetic dentistry treatments can only address one cosmetic imperfection at once, porcelain veneers can conceal chips, minor gaps, deep discoloration, and misshapen teeth – all in one treatment.

Long-Lasting Results

Veneers are made from stain-resistant porcelain, meaning they will not stain like your surrounding teeth. Although veneers will eventually need to be replaced, you can enjoy the stunning results for many years.

Here's how veneers are placed...

Recommendations and Requirements for Patients Considering Veneers

Amount of Tooth Enamel

In order to place veneers, Dr. Patrick Tanner will need to remove a small amount of enamel. Therefore, you should have a healthy amount if you are considering veneers.

Grinding Habits

Patients who grind or clench their teeth may not be good candidates for veneers, since excessive pressure and strain can prematurely fracture the porcelain. With the help of an oral appliance, many patients can reduce the pressure put on their veneers during sleep.

Treatable Issues

Although veneers can conceal a wide range of cosmetic imperfections, they are not recommended for patients with large gaps or severe malocclusion. If you suffer from these issues, you may be better-suited for orthodontics.

Commitment to Permanent Upkeep

Although veneers are a long-lasting treatment option, they will need to be replaced at some point. Therefore, you should be ready for a permanent investment. And although they do not stain or develop cavities, veneers need to be cared for just like your natural teeth.

If they will eventually need to be replaced, are veneers really worth it

Veneers Can Last over 10 Years or More

Although they will typically need to be replaced at some point in your lifetime, veneers have shown outstanding success rates. One study by the British Dental Association showed that up to 95 percent of veneers were still in good condition after a decade

Veneers are more expensive than other procedures, such as dental bonding, but can deliver the natural-looking, highly aesthetic results you deserve for many more years

More Information About Porcelain Veneers

Looking for a way to dramatically enhance the appearance of your teeth and transform your entire smile? Dr. Patrick Tanner is proud to offer elite cosmetic dentistry services including custom-made porcelain veneers a his South OgdenUtah practice. Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain shells that cover the front surface of your teeth, instantly transforming your smile from ordinary to extraordinary.

Placing Porcelain Veneers

Older couple outdoorsDr. Tanner performs a thorough examination of each patient's mouth before installing porcelain veneers. During the exam, he will evaluate the condition of your teeth using various techniques and top-notch technology. For some people who have excess gum tissue, Dr. Tanner recommends a gum lift procedure before receiving porcelain veneers. Before creating your custom porcelain veneers, we make note of what you want to change about your smile.

Receiving porcelain veneers requires two visits. During your first visit we will prep your gums and teeth for the treatment. Dr. Tanner takes your existing features into account to create a seamless smile that complements your smile, as well as your entire face. A thin layer of your tooth enamel will be removed from your tooth's front surface to make room for the veneer. Next, Dr. Tanner will take a mold of your modified tooth, which will be sent to a lab to guide the creation of your veneer.

During your second appointment, Dr. Tanner will install the wafer-thin porcelain coverings by bonding them directly onto your teeth using a safe cement formula. Porcelain veneers are one of the most requested treatments at our South Ogden, Utah dental facility. They provide a beautiful, natural look, and immediately transform your smile.

Things to Think About…

Here are a few questions that you should ask yourself before consulting with your dentist about porcelain veneers if you have minor cosmetic imperfections:

  • Are your teeth cracked, chipped, broken, discolored, or worn down?
  • Are you unhappy with the size, shape, texture, or color of your teeth?
  • Are there gaps in between your teeth?
  • Is your smile misshaped or misaligned?

If you answered yes to any of those questions then porcelain veneers may be an ideal solution to your cosmetic needs. It is important to schedule a consultation with Dr. Tanner to discuss your long term and short term goals before seeking treatment.

Making Your Veneers Last

Although veneers are durable and repel stains, they may have to be replaced every few years. Practicing good oral hygiene is an essential element to making your porcelain veneers last. Dr. Tanner recommends his patients in Ogden, Utah schedule routine checkups, avoid eating and chewing hard objects, and stop using tobacco products. Grinding and clenching your teeth can damage veneers, so if you tension condition such as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), seeking treatment can protect your porcelain veneers.
