Why Choose Ceramic Veneers for a Beautiful Smile?

Veneers are thin ceramic coverings that are bonded to the front of teeth to eliminate flaws like stains, chips, gaps, and misalignment. Dentists have been using veneers to correct crooked, misshapen, and discolored teeth for decades. They were actually developed by a California dentist in the 1920s, who designed them for celebrities to wear temporarily on-screen! The materials used for veneers, as well as the bonding used to affix them to teeth, have improved drastically since then.

Arrowhead Dental Lab has been creating my veneers for nearly 20 years. I find their Elite veneers to be the most vibrant and lifelike. Their highly skilled ceramic technicians apply an unprecedented number of ceramics to each veneer, creating a subtle, translucent quality that allows light to reflect like a natural tooth. It’s nearly impossible to differentiate between their veneers and real teeth!

I love showing patients what we can do for them. The process for creating your veneers begins when we discuss options for your particular situation during your office visit. Arrowhead then produces wax models of your teeth based on the digital scans and photos that we take. The models let us show you what the final result will look like. We then create temporary veneers that mimic what Arrowhead’s ceramicists will specifically tailor for your mouth. The results are beautiful and natural and will last for at least 10 years. Many of my veneers look fantastic 20 years later if my patients take good care of them!
