Best Cosmetic Dentist for Porcelain Veneers
Total Care Dental provides Madison’s best cosmetic dentistry services. One of the quickest and easiest ways to instantly improve your smile and overall appearance is with porcelain veneers. Veneers are ultra-thin shells of enamel-like porcelain which are handcrafted by master dental ceramists and permanently bonded to the front of the teeth. Porcelain is just as strong, if not stronger, than your natural enamel. Like bonded veneers, porcelain veneers are a quick and easy way to improve your smile.
Why Choose Porcelain Veneers?
Many people are embarrassed by the imperfections of their teeth and hide their smiles from the world. At Total Care Dental, we want to give you a bright and beautiful smile you’ll want to share. Porcelain veneers resemble natural enamel and are designed to remain a bright white color and resist stains. These veneers are also less prone to chipping and mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth.
Porcelain dental veneers provide a range of advantages:
- Natural tooth appearance
- Easy on gum tissue
- More stain resistant than bonded veneers
- Makes dark teeth look whiter
- Changes tooth shape without extensive shaping work
- Long-lasting (up to 15 or more years with proper care)

Veneers: A Tooth Whitening Alternative
Porcelain veneers are one way to whiten teeth that have been discolored by smoking, medications, or tetracycline antibiotics. While we offer two-hour teeth whitening procedures, deep discoloration may not be treatable.
Additionally, patients with very sensitive teeth may not be able to safely receive traditional whitening treatment without causing pain. Applying veneers is a safe way to whiten your sensitive teeth.
What to Expect When Getting Porcelain Veneers
Total Care Dental is proud to partner with the highest quality labs in the country for all our cosmetic dentistry supplies, ensuring you receive the best veneer to restore your naturally beautiful smile. The procedure for applying porcelain veneers is simple:
- In a preliminary appointment, your dentist will take X-rays or perform a physical examination and discuss what you would like to achieve.
- We will remove the top layer of your enamel when putting the veneers on (only about half a millimeter).
- An impression of your teeth is taken and sent to a lab, where porcelain veneers are custom designed. This impression provides accurate and precise measurements of your teeth, ensuring the veneers will fit properly. It takes a week or two to prepare the veneers.
- Your teeth will be thoroughly cleaned and lightly buffed, allowing the thicker veneers to fit comfortably.
- Next, the veneers and adhesive will be bonded to your teeth with a special cement hardened by a UV light.
This simple procedure requires little to no anesthesia, and the veneers are applied in a single appointment. Your new veneers require the same oral hygiene routine as your regular teeth: brushing twice a day and daily flossing. Your Madison dentist may want to schedule a follow-up appointment a few weeks later to make sure the veneers are properly placed and attached and to answer any of your questions. You’ll leave our office with a brand new smile and renewed confidence.
