Porcelain Veneers

Summerlin, Las Vegas, and Henderson Nevada

Porcelain veneers are a common way for an experienced cosmetic dentist to transform your smile. At Inspire Dental of Summerlin, your Las Vegas cosmetic dentist Dr. Matthew Wilson can use porcelain veneers to improve the look of your teeth using an easy and convenient process.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin ceramic shells that are created to fit each specific tooth receiving treatment, also hiding imperfections. The porcelain veneers are bonded to the surface of your teeth to give you a smile that not only looks natural but also feels and functions like your natural teeth. At our Las Vegas cosmetic dentist office, porcelain veneers are widely used in Smile Design cases to transform multiple teeth and create a whole new smile. They can also fix simple problems like a misshapen tooth or a gap between teeth. With regular care, they can give you a confident smile for years to come.

Problems Solved by Porcelain Veneers

Again, porcelain veneers are an important part of transforming more complex Smile Design cases, but can also be a remedy for many of the most common dental problems that contribute to unattractive smiles, including teeth that are:

  • Discolored or stained
  • Crooked
  • Chipped
  • Cracked
  • Broken
  • Worn
  • Uneven
  • Misshapen
  • Gapped

What to Expect

The procedure for getting porcelain veneers typically requires two visits to our cosmetic dental office in Summerlin. After your comprehensive evaluation and consultation, Dr. Wilson will prepare your teeth for your porcelain veneers. This process involves removing a minute amount of tooth structure.

We take impressions of your teeth, which are sent to our trusted dental lab where your restorations are expertly designed. We will craft aesthetic and comfortable temporaries for you to wear while waiting for your permanent veneers to be made.

Each veneer is handcrafted with top-quality dental porcelain that will mimic the same light reflecting qualities and shade of a natural tooth. If you are receiving multiple veneers, we can choose a lighter shade of porcelain to provide you with a whiter smile overall. There is also the option of matching a single veneer to your existing natural teeth if only one tooth is being treated.

At your second visit, approximately two weeks later, we remove your temporary veneers and then bond your new custom designed porcelain veneers to your natural teeth. Dr. Wilson will make any necessary adjustments. The finished product results in a beautiful smile that makes you feel proud and confident!

Composite Veneers 

At Inspire Dental of Summerlin, we also provide the option of composite veneers, which are handcrafted by expert cosmetic dentist, Dr. Wilson. The difference between composite and porcelain veneers is that composite veneers can be placed in a single day, and do not require the use of a dental lab.

However, tooth preparation is still required. Dr. Wilson expertly shapes and designs your veneers, bonding the material directly to the front surface of your teeth. Once complete, you will leave our Las Vegas office with a transformed smile!
