Porcelain Veneers in Madison

One of the quickest and easiest ways to instantly and easily improve your smile and overall appearance is with porcelain veneers. Veneers are ultra-thin shells of enamel-like porcelain, handcrafted by our master dental ceramists and then permanently bonded to the front of the teeth. 

Whether you need bonded veneersInvisalign or teeth whitening, Total Care Dental is here with quality cosmetic services to give you the smile you deserve. 


Best Cosmetic Dentist for Porcelain Veneers

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. Thankfully at Total Care Dental, we repair smiles using porcelain veneers at our Madison dental office. Take the first step to a new smile by scheduling a consultation.


Dental Veneers Compared to Other Teeth6 Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Many people are embarrassed by the imperfections of their teeth and choose to hide their smiles. At Total Care Dental, we want to give you a bright and beautiful smile you’ll want to share. Porcelain veneers are designed to resemble natural enamel, 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.

Advantages of porcelain dental veneers:

  • Natural tooth appearance
  • Easy on gum tissue
  • More stain-resistant than bonded veneers
  • Make dark teeth look whiter
  • Change tooth shape without extensive shaping work
  • Long-lasting (up to 15 or more years with proper care)

Should I get Veneers?

Veneers are ideal for people who want to significantly change the shape and appearance of their teeth without using crowns. Porcelain veneers not only create beautiful, bright smiles but also protect damaged teeth. These veneers may additionally prevent the need for more extensive dental procedures.

To be considered as a candidate for porcelain veneers, a client must meet certain dental health requirements:

  • Good overall oral health
  • Committed to proper oral hygiene
  • Have a sufficient amount of healthy, natural enamel

Although porcelain veneers are more costly than bonded veneers, they are a worthwhile investment. With proper care and design, porcelain veneers can last up to 20 years or longer. Total Dental Care offers a variety of payment options and accepts most major dental insurance plans. Our offices offer a 5% discount to patients with no dental insurance for services over $300, when paid in full before any treatment.


Porcelain Veneers Customized for Your Ideal SmileCrooked Teeth

Porcelain veneers are usually cosmetic and can correct a variety of aesthetic concerns. However, they can also fix dental problems by making it easier to chew or talk. If you feel self-conscious about your smile, talk to your dentist to find out if porcelain veneers are right for you.

Veneers can correct teeth which are:

  • Too small or too large
  • Crooked, uneven, or misaligned
  • Discolored, stained, or dull
  • Worn down
  • Broken, chipped, or cracked
  • Misshapen
  • Gapped or abnormally spaced

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. Patients with very sensitive teeth may not be able to safely receive traditional whitening treatment without encountering pain. Applying veneers is a safe way to whiten your sensitive teeth.

Porcelain Veneer Process

Total Care Dental partners with the highest quality labs in the country for all our cosmetic dentistry supplies, ensuring you receive the best veneers. The procedure for applying porcelain veneers is simple:

  1.  Preliminary appointment: Your dentist takes X-rays or performs a physical examination to discuss what you would like to achieve.
  2.  Putting on veneers requires the removal of the top layer of your enamel (only about half a millimeter).
  3.  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.
  4.  Your teeth will be thoroughly cleaned and lightly buffed, allowing the thicker veneers to fit comfortably.
  5.  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 can be done in a single appointment. New veneers require the same oral hygiene routine as your regular teeth: brushing twice a day and daily flossing. A follow-up appointment may be scheduled a few weeks later to make sure the veneers are properly placed and attached. You’ll leave our office with a brand new smile and renewed confidence.
