Porcelain VeneersAn Overview
The secret to those amazing smiles!
Of all the cosmetic dental procedures available today for changing and improving the look of your smile, porcelain veneers are among the most popular and successful with our patients. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain custom fabricated to perfectly fit your teeth and blend with your appearance.
The process involves removing a small amount of tooth structure to make room for the veneers, which are permanently attached to the teeth. Once the veneers are bonded to your teeth they are undetectable and you have the smile of your dreams.

Choosing the Right Cosmetic Dentist
When it comes to the integrity and durability of your results, choosing the right cosmetic dentist plays a key role. Cosmetic dentistry includes a range of treatments and procedures that are used to repair teeth or change their appearance, most involving the use of ceramic or composites that are adhered to the teeth. A highly trained and experienced dentist who takes a comprehensive approach can make the difference between a result that supports long-term oral health and one that breaks down over time.
Dr. Sousa evaluates all aspects of your teeth, gums, and jaw joints to look for any signs of instability that could compromise results over time. A bad bite, malocclusion, TMJ dysfunction, or other structural concerns can place stress on veneers and lead to damage. Addressing any underlying concerns as a part of your treatment plan means that your result will feel as good as it looks.
