Makeover Your Smile With Porcelain Veneers from Your SE Portland Dentist

Beautiful teeth can make a huge difference in your appearance and confidence, and not everyone is born with a perfect smile. If your teeth are discolored, worn down, chipped, broken, misaligned, or irregularly shaped, veneers are a great way to create the smile you’ve always wanted.

Porcelain veneers are resilient, thin shells of tooth-colored material, custom designed to cover the front surface of teeth. They are designed and made to exact specifications for you and then bonded to your teeth, providing a strong foundation and a healthy, natural look.

Our Process for Custom Veneers in Portland

Your First Appointment

During your first appointment for veneers at our Portland dental clinic:

  • Your tooth or teeth will be prepared and shaped for the new veneer. Some of the tooth enamel will be removed to ensure a proper fit.
  • Our team will match the shade of your veneer to the rest of your teeth so you’ll have a natural-looking smile. 
  • We will take an impression in order to create and place a temporary veneer.

At this appointment, before matching the shade, Teeth whitening may be suggested to lighten your other teeth for a brighter smile. 

Your Second Appointment

During your second appointment:

  • The temporary veneer will be removed.
  • We will place your veneer on the tooth to ensure proper fit and aesthetics.
  • Once everything looks and feels good, final adjustments will be made.
  • Your tooth will be prepared for the bonding process.
  • Finally, we will permanently apply the veneer to the tooth for a secure, long-lasting fit.

Sometimes a follow-up appointment is necessary a week after the veneer’s placement. During this appointment, we will make sure the gums have responded well to your new veneer.

FAQ About Portland Dental Veneers

What Type of Portland Dentist Offers Veneers?

General Dentists, Cosmetic Dentists, and even Orthodontists can offer veneers to their patients.

Dr. Jason McMillan at Mint Dental Works in SE Portland has a post-doctoral focus on cosmetic procedures and offers top-quality veneers that will leave you with a beautiful new smile, typically completed within two appointments.

What is the Difference Between a Veneer and a Crown?

Typically, crowns are used to restore a damaged or decayed tooth, while veneers are used to restore the aesthetics of your smile.

While dental crowns cover the entire surface of your tooth, dental veneers only cover the front of your tooth. 

Can You Get Veneers With Missing Teeth?

Veneers aren’t intended to cover spaces, but are a tooth-colored shell meant to cover a tooth that may be discolored or damaged. 

If you are missing a tooth, your Portland dentist may suggest a dental implant to fill the space and enhance the form and function of your smile.

Can You Get Cavities With Veneers?

While dental veneers themselves cannot get cavities, it is possible to get a cavity on the tooth the veneer is adhered to.

Maintaining good oral hygiene and having regular dental exams with your Portland Dentist must remain a priority after getting veneers to ensure your smile stays healthy!

Can You Get Veneers With Crooked Teeth?

In some instances, you may be able to get veneers if you have crooked teeth. You may be a good candidate if your tooth is a little out of position or slightly rotated. Your dentist will need to examine your teeth to find out if veneers would be right for you. In the case of extremely crooked or misaligned teeth, straightening may be recommended.
