What are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?
There are many reasons why porcelain veneers, often referred to as dental veneers, are an ideal solution to improve your smile. Dr. Robert Chin and Dr. Jessica Pharar can match the color of your dental veneers to the natural shade of your teeth, ensuring they will blend in seamlessly with your smile. In addition, the dental porcelain used for veneers mimic the translucent properties of tooth enamel, ensuring your procedure will deliver the beautiful, natural looking results you desire.

What Problems can Porcelain Veneers Correct?
Our Las Vegas porcelain veneers improve the appearance of teeth by addressing common cosmetic dental issues, including:
- Crooked teeth
- Yellow, stained teeth
- Uneven tooth length
- Misshapen teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Worn teeth
- Chipped teeth
If you have gaps or spaces between your teeth, you can instantly conceal the gaps with dental veneers. Instead of closing the gap, porcelain veneers simply create a wider tooth surface. Porcelain dental veneers are also a great way to create tooth uniformity. If you have a couple of teeth that are irregularly sized, veneers can be used to bring these teeth into proportion with your other teeth.
Veneers can also be used as a long-term answer to stained teeth. Porcelain veneers are stain resistant, so they can provide a bright white smile for many years. Dr. Robert Chin and Dr. Jessica Pharar often recommend veneers for patients who have stains which are resistant to teeth whitening treatments.
Instant Orthodontics with Dental Veneers
If you would like to straighten crooked teeth but don’t want to commit to the length of time and the hassles associated with orthodontics, then porcelain veneers may be a great option for you. Many of our patients are excited to learn that instead of enduring 1-2 years of a “mouthful of metal,” they can achieve a straight, beautiful smile in just a few office visits. For this reason, porcelain veneers are commonly referred to as “instant orthodontics.”
Keep in mind that porcelain veneers will only provide you with the appearance of straight teeth. They won’t actually move your teeth and bite into proper alignment. If you want to experience the functional benefits associated with straight teeth, you’ll need to undergo orthodontic treatment. However, if your primary goal is to have teeth that look straight and beautiful, then “instant orthodontics” may be the right course of action to pursue.
Am I a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile, you are probably a candidate for porcelain veneers. However, the only way to know if veneers may be an option for you is to visit our Las Vegas cosmetic dentists. During your initial visit, Dr. Robert Chin and Dr. Jessica Pharar will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine whether veneers are the ideal solution to achieve your aesthetic goals. There may be a number of other ways to improve your smile, and we will let you know which option is right for you.
In general, good porcelain veneers candidates:
- Have healthy teeth
- Do not suffer from gum disease
- Do not have a history of grinding their teeth
- Do not have any active infections
If you have gum disease or other oral health issues, it won’t necessarily rule you out as a candidate for the procedure. However, Dr. Robert Chin and Dr. Jessica Pharar will have to treat these other conditions and restore optimal levels of oral health before you can have your veneers placed. If you grind your teeth heavily, your veneers may be more likely to break over time. Depending on the severity and frequency of your tooth grinding, Dr. Robert Chin and Dr. Jessica Pharar may give you a bite guard to wear while you sleep or they may recommend a different treatment that may hold up better when you grind your teeth.
Your Customized Dental Veneers Procedure
Porcelain veneers can help you achieve the beautiful smile you desire in just 3 visits to our Las Vegas dentist office.
First Visit: Your Initial Consultation
Your first visit is a cosmetic dentistry consultation with Dr. Robert Chin and Dr. Jessica Pharar. During this appointment, our cosmetic dentists will evaluate the health of your teeth and gums to make sure you’re a good candidate for dental veneers. They’ll also listen carefully to your desired outcome and make individualized recommendations regarding which teeth will need veneers to achieve your goals.
During your consultation, you will have the opportunity to view before and after photos to get a better sense of what can be achieved with porcelain veneers. Dr. Robert Chin and Dr. Jessica Pharar will also use digital imaging software to demonstrate an approximation of what your new smile will look like.
Second Visit: Your Trial Smile
When you return to our office for your second visit, Dr. Robert Chin and Dr. Jessica Pharar will prepare your teeth to accommodate your veneers. This involves removing a small amount of enamel from the surface of your teeth to ensure your new veneers will fit snugly and bond properly. An impression of your smile will be created and sent to the lab for use in the construction of your porcelain veneers.
You will also leave this visit with a “trial smile” that consists of a set of temporary veneers to be worn while your permanent restoration is being created at the lab. The temporary veneers will be attached securely to your teeth, ensuring they function properly while you wait for the lab to complete your veneers.
Third Visit: Placing Your Porcelain Veneers
Once the lab has constructed your veneers, you’ll return to our dental office to have them securely bonded to your teeth. During this visit, Dr. Robert Chin and Dr. Jessica Pharar will make sure your veneers fit properly and match the color of your natural teeth. Once your dental veneers have been bonded to your teeth, you’ll be able to experience all of the benefits associated with your beautiful new smile.
