• Veneers / Laminate

  • Minimal-Prep Veneers to Transform Your Smile

    Whether you want to enhance a single flawed tooth, or you want to rejuvenate your entire smile, porcelain veneers may be the solution. Ultra-thin veneers attach to the front of your teeth, concealing blemishes and reshaping irregular teeth.

    What Are Veneers?

    Porcelain veneers are thin shells, created to correspond with the shape and color of your teeth. They attach directly to the front of your teeth. In this way, they can correct even severe aesthetic flaws. Because of his commitment to biomimetic dentistry, Dr. Yum uses ultra-thin veneers. These restorations are about the thickness of a contact lens, but they are incredibly strong and durable. Thanks to their reduced size, Dr. Yum will need to remove very little enamel, if any, before affixing them to your teeth.

    Dental porcelain comes in a range of shades, and Dr. Yum will choose the most natural-looking color available. He will also take impressions of your teeth to ensure that your veneers are a near-perfect match to your smile. In most cases, you will receive your custom-crafted veneers in just two weeks. In some instances, you may only have a one-week turnaround!

    Are You a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?

    If you are embarrassed by one or more of the following concerns, porcelain veneers may be the solution for you:

    • Severe stains that teeth whitening cannot reduce
    • Misshapen or overly small teeth
    • Worn teeth
    • Small spaces between your teeth
    • Slightly crooked teeth
    • Hairline cracks or small chips

    Because we use minimal-prep veneers, you may be a candidate for this treatment, even if you have suffered some enamel erosion. Nevertheless, Dr. Yum will conduct a complete consultation to make sure this treatment is suitable for your smile.

    The Advantages of Porcelain Veneers

    If you are a candidate for veneers, you will enjoy their many benefits. First, veneers are very lifelike. Thanks to our advanced materials, they are virtually identical to dental enamel. Second, they are easy to care for. In fact, you will maintain your veneers just like your natural teeth – with brushing, flossing, and routine dental visits. With this regular care, your veneers could last ten years or more. Thanks to the many aesthetic and practical benefits of porcelain veneers, you will enjoy an improved self-confidence, and you will be more willing to share your smile with those around you.
