Perfect Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers

For individuals whose teeth are cosmetically flawed, the simple act of smiling can be quite uncomfortable, if not embarrassing.At Columbia Smiles, Dr. Nick Pournaras and his team work with patients to restore health and beauty to their teeth, giving them the confidence they need to smile big. Porcelain veneers are just one of the cosmetic dentistry treatments offered at our Columbia, South Carolina practice. Sometimes referred to as "instant orthodontics," porcelain veneers are used to mask flaws in the teeth and create bright, expertly aligned smiles.

We’re committed to helping each of our patients feel good about his or her smile. If you suffer from chips, stains, or unevenness in your smile and are interested in learning more about porcelain veneers, please contact Columbia Smiles today.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells that are placed over the teeth to cover imperfections in the smile. Dr. Nick offers traditional porcelain veneers as well as minimal prep veneers to patients of his Columbia dental practice. Patients who suffer from chipped, stained, or cracked teeth can achieve a flawless smile with either type of veneer. In addition, porcelain veneers can be used to close minor gaps between teeth, eliminating the need for more extensive orthodontic treatment. Although veneers do not actually repair these flaws, they are an excellent option for patients who have basically healthy teeth but who wish simply to conceal cosmetic imperfections. Because porcelain veneers closely resemble natural teeth, they are virtually undetectable to others. In just one visit to Dr. Nick’s inviting office, patients can completely transform their smiles.

Being Fitted with Porcelain Veneers is Easy

As with all of his dental procedures, Dr. Nick strives to make the placement of porcelain veneers as convenient and comfortable as possible. Dr. Nick and his team know that no two patients are alike, which is why they work with patients individually to determine how best to meet their specific needs. Treatment usually takes two appointments. The first begins with a consultation and thorough oral examination. Dr. Nick then takes a detailed impression of the teeth and uses computer technology to get an accurate picture of the area. These impressions are sent to an off-site lab for production. After the veneer has been created, Dr. Nick will call you in for a second appointment, during which he can prep the teeth and bond the veneers. As a skilled cosmetic dentist, he is able to alter the shape and shade of the veneer with exceptional precision, creating a natural, beautiful smile for each of his patients.

The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers offer a number of cosmetic and functional benefits. In addition to hiding chips, stains, or cracks in the teeth, porcelain veneers reinforce weakened teeth. They are also an excellent alternative to traditional orthodontic treatments, which can be uncomfortable and take a year or more to complete. Finally, porcelain veneers are a long-lasting solution to oral imperfections. When coupled with proper oral care, veneers can last up to 15 years.
