Veneers

Renew your Confidence with Veneers

Conceal imperfections with porcelain shells that fit over the front of your teeth. Porcelain veneers can address many cosmetic concerns with a single treatment. The team at the Miller Center can use veneers to create a smile that compliments your unique features and gives you renewed self-confidence. To learn more about how you can benefit from porcelain veneers, contact our Livingston office and schedule a consultation with Dr. Craig Miller.

Let you smile dazzle.

Veneers require a healthy foundation. Candidates should have healthy teeth and gums. If you suffer with bruxism (teeth grinding), we must address the condition before moving ahead with veneers and other cosmetic treatments.

Veneers can provide tremendous benefits for those who wish to address:

  • Discoloration or staining, especially if the teeth are affected by intrinsic stains that do not respond to teeth whitening treatment
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Mild to moderate misalignment
  • Uneven, misshapen, or worn teeth

Minimal-prep Porcelain Veneers

We know that good and fast results are what our clients are looking for. If you want to correct your cosmetic issues in a relatively short amount of time, we can place minimal-prep porcelain veneers.

Dr. Miller recommends them for the following reasons:

  • Preserves tooth structure and enamel
  • Reduces patient pain
  • Protects gingival health
  • Saves chair time
  • Produces outstanding esthetic results
  • Accommodates future restorations

Examining and preparing the tooth

During your first appointment, we will determine the coloration and alignment you wish to achieve. To prepare your teeth for the next step, Dr. Miller will remove less than one-quarter of a millimeter of enamel from the teeth you wish to treat.

Making an impression

After taking an impression of your prepared teeth, we will place temporary veneers, which provide an excellent appearance and fit while you wait for your permanent veneers to be fabricated. Based on the fit and feel of your temporaries, we can make adjustments to your permanent veneers.

Installation procedure

Our lab uses strong, esthetic e.max® and Empress® lithium disilicate ceramic to craft your veneers. Once your permanent veneers are ready, you will return to our office where we will apply them to your teeth with bonding cement for a secure hold.

Questions & Answers

For patients who want even faster results, we also provide dental bonding. Bonding takes one day and typically costs less than porcelain veneers. Unlike porcelain veneers, bonding does not require impressions or lab manufacturing. Instead, the dentist will apply a liquid resin to your tooth, molding it for a cosmetic appearance before hardening it with a special light.

What are porcelain veneers?

A porcelain veneer is a layer of porcelain placed over a tooth. Veneers improve the aesthetic of a smile and/or protect the tooth’s surface from damage.

What is composite bonding?

Composite bonding is most often used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of discolored or chipped teeth. The composite resin used in bonding can be shaped and polished to match the surrounding teeth.

Should I choose composite bonding or porcelain veneers?

There are pros and cons to both porcelain veneers and composite bonding. Tell us about your concerns and goals during your consultation and we will find the right solution for you.

How many veneers do I need?

It's ultimately up to you to decide how many veneers you need. You may wish to get veneers just on the teeth which are most visible when you smile.

How long is the process?

A veneer or bonding can take as little as one appointment. The length of the process depends on how many teeth need veneers or bonding and how complex your solution is.

How long do veneers last?

Veneers are permanently bonded and last as long as your natural teeth. Keep your teeth healthy and bright with regular care and checkups.

Are veneers a covered insurance benefit?

You must contact your insurance provider to find out if they will cover veneers. We can provide you with a quote for your provider after a consultation.
