Do you have teeth that are severely discolored and stained from smoking? If so, porcelain veneers may be right for you. If you have been smoking for a long period of time, it is virtually impossible to keep your teeth white and beautiful.

Although there are countless teeth whitening products on the market that claim to remove the yellowish stains from long-term smoking, many of them do not work or only offer temporary results. Fortunately, there is a better, more permanent solution.

Porcelain veneers can give you the opportunity to restore your smile and achieve whiter teeth in as little as two visits to the dentist. They are thin shells that are resistant to stains from coffee, tea, wine, and even smoking.

Veneers are shell-like covers that are placed in front of teeth. They mask the teeth and conceal imperfections and reduce the risk of stains. While the ideal solution to keeping your veneers in good shape is to quit smoking, if you cannot quit, you may still enjoy pretty white teeth with porcelain veneers.

If you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers, our dentist will remove a bit of enamel from each of your teeth and note their dimensions. Then, your veneers will be manufactured in a lab and fitted in our office.
