Dental veneers can help you have a more confident, beautiful smile by solving numerous cosmetic problems. Whether you have a single chipped tooth or you dislike the look of your entire smile, dental veneers can deliver dramatic results.

Presidio Heights dentists Dr. Lawless has the expertise to address numerous cosmetic flaws with veneers including:
  • Stained or yellow teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Worn or chipped teeth
  • Poorly shaped teeth
  • Short teeth
A veneer can be used for a single tooth or to enhance numerous teeth, creating a dramatic cosmetic result. The process requires a great deal of planning - from shade to size and shape, every effort will be made to provide you with natural and seamless veneers.

An evaluation with Dr. Lawless will help you understand what you might achieve with veneers. Veneers can also be combined with other treatment options to achieve your desired results.

What Are Veneers?
Veneers are made of either a thin resin or porcelain material. They fit over your natural teeth much like a contact lens does for the eye. Dr. Lawless will prepare your natural tooth for the veneer by gently removing some of the enamel. Once your tooth is prepped, we will apply permanent cement (bonding agent) and make an airtight seal with the veneer and your natural tooth.

How Long Do Veneers Last?
The length of time your veneers will last will depend on your lifestyle and the way that you care for your teeth. Regular hygiene appointments and exams are the foundation of good dental health. Following Dr. Lawless' recommendations for the ongoing care of your veneers will help them last and keep your smile looking beautiful.
