What are veneers?

Veneers are a quick and easy way to get beautiful looking teeth.  Veneers are thin porcelain shells that fit over the front of the teeth.  They can correct spacing, color, shape, and crowding in most cases.

Modern veneers are often by Dr. Etchison using the no prep/minimal prep method.   This is different from older veneers where the teeth were shaved down prior to veneer placement.   The veneer materials we are using nowadays also have superior longevity.

Veneers are usually performed in two appointments.  The impression appointment, which is usually around 30 minutes, and the delivery appointment, which is usually around 3 hours.

You can even try on and take a test run with veneers in temporaries to see what is possible.   No prep veneers are reversible and can be removed if needed, though it rarely if ever happens.

Veneers can change your self-esteem and dramatically improve your overall appearance.  If you are thinking about a new smile, Dr. Etchison would be happy to sit down and provide consultation on what is possible. He is a trained Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry dentist that uses the best and latest smile design principles around.   Please look at our gallery for some of his work.

To begin the process, patients perform a two-week home treatment at home. After those two weeks, patients return to our facility to receive chair side teeth whitening treatments.
