Veneers

Are you self-conscious about your smile because of worn, chipped, or crooked teeth?

Veneers conceal these imperfections to give your smile a whiter, straighter appearance. 

Dr. Patrick Tanner in South Ogden, UT, can craft custom veneers to give you the smile you've dreamed of.

See How Veneers Work

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are placed over the front of the tooth. Porcelain veneers are a natural-looking solution to a number of cosmetic issues and can give patients a brighter, more symmetrical smile.

Financing Options Available

Because veneers are cosmetic, most insurance plans do not cover them. We do not want financial barriers to prevent patients from achieving the smile of their dreams. We accept all major credit cards and offer financing through CareCredit®. 

Minimal/No-Prep Veneers

Traditional veneers require a small amount of enamel to be removed from the tooth for the veneer to fit properly. The altered tooth will always require some sort of restoration following treatment. Minimal/no-prep veneers require even less enamel to be removed, making them a great option for patients with sensitive teeth or who do not want to permanently alter their smile. Our practice offers both Lumineers® and DURAthin® veneers, especially lifelike brands of ultra-thin veneers. 

Learn About the DURAthin Difference A No-Prep Smile Transformation

We're proud to offer DURAthin veneers, a revolutionary cosmetic treatment that requires special expertise to fabricate and place.

These wafer-thin veneers can be applied directly to the surface of your teeth without any enamel removal, offering you a gentler aesthetic solution than traditional porcelain veneers, crowns, and many other popular cosmetic dentistry services.

If you ever change your mind about wearing your DURAthin veneers, you can easily have them removed, and your natural, fully functional smile will be waiting underneath.

Our South Ogden practice welcomes patients from all over Northern Utah. If you're ready to enhance your appearance with DURAthin veneers or any of our other life-changing veneers options, contact us online or call us at:

Dr. Tanner is the first dentist I’ve ever been too that I felt cared more for me than he did my money. Best experience I’ve ever had at the dentist hands down!

Candidates for Dental Veneers

Sufficient Enamel

If you have worn or thin enamel, you may not qualify for traditional veneers. If your tooth has significant damage or trauma, a crown may be a better option for you. 

Minor Misalignments

It is important to remember that dental veneers simply conceal imperfections. If you have significant alignment issues or want to correct crooked teeth, your dentist may suggest traditional orthodontics or orthodontic alternatives such as Invisalign®.

Overall Good Oral Health and Hygiene

If you suffer from poor oral health due to decay, gum disease, or teeth grinding, these issues must be addressed before you qualify for porcelain veneers. This ensures the tooth structure under the veneer is healthy. You must also have good oral hygiene.

Veneer Placement

We use wax-up models to help patients envision their new smiles before proceeding with treatment.

Initial Consultation

During your initial consultation at our South Ogden, UT, dentistry practice, your dentist will examine your mouth and discuss your dental history as well as your dental and cosmetic goals. This allows him to determine if veneers are a good option for you. 

Impressions

Next, your dentist will take impressions of your mouth. At our dental practice, we use both traditional and state-of-the-art digital impressions. Your impressions will be sent to our trusted dental lab. While veneers can be made with resin, our dental lab uses high-quality DURAthin porcelain veneers and Lumineers for natural-looking, stunning results. 

Preparation

Your veneers will arrive back at our dental practice within two to three weeks. Dr. Tanner will prepare your tooth by removing a small amount of enamel. Traditional veneers require 0.5-0.7 millimeters of enamel to be removed, while no-prep requires even less. This simply ensures the veneer fits properly and blends seamlessly with your natural teeth. 

Placement

Once the tooth is prepared, your veneer will be permanently bonded to your tooth and you can share your smile confidently!

Before

After

Caring for Your Veneers

After placing your veneers, your dentist will provide detailed instructions on how to keep them bright and beautiful for years to come. Some important tips include:

Chew Carefully

Our veneers are made to withstand the force of your bite, but it's still important to take care with what you eat. Especially hard foods like nuts and popcorn kernels can crack porcelain, which will require future trips to the dentist to fix.

Avoid Staining Foods and Drinks

Porcelain veneers are naturally stain-resistant, but frequent consumption of staining substances like dark sauces, wine, and coffee can cause discoloration. Cigarettes and other tobacco products can also take away from the bright appearance of your veneers.

Practice Good Oral Hygiene

Veneers need to be taken care of just like natural teeth. Be sure to brush and floss regularly, and pay special attention around your gums to prevent food particles from collecting under your veneers. Biannual checkups with your South Ogden dentist are also important to maintaining a healthy, beautiful smile.

Choose the Right Toothbrush and Toothpaste

Hard-bristled brushes and toothpastes with ingredients like aluminum oxide, calcium carbonate, and sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) can scratch porcelain veneers and take away from their bright appearance. It's important to use a soft toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste to avoid damage. Our South Ogden team is happy to recommend brands that will keep your smile looking great.

This is the future of Dentistry. My Son and I came to South Ogden Smiles and was more than pleasantly surprised. The staff made us feel welcomed and comfortable from the second that we walked in. Dr. Tanner was professional and took his time with my many questions. His office was clean and inviting and we never felt rushed. I will recommend this amazing place to everyone I know. The anxiety of going to the Dentist can be a terrible thing for me. I will definitely be more confident and at peace the next time I need dental work done. AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!!
