Porcelain Veneers in Mobile
The quick way to a beautiful, confident smile
A veneer is a wafer-thin shield of porcelain that is used to cover the front surface of the tooth, just like a fake fingernail fits over a nail. They are bonded to your teeth with a very strong, yet safe, adhesive agent. With 21st century technology, porcelain veneers can now last up to 20 years.
Our dentists use their decades of combined experience and advanced cosmetic dentistry training knowledge to create beautiful, natural-looking porcelain veneers.
Minimal-prep Porcelain Veneers
There’s a whole new generation of modern materials and techniques that have been developed to make great looking veneers with minimal “prepping” or grinding away of the tooth structure. The porcelain used is ultrathin and very strong.

Porcelain Veneers procedure
Our dentists’ solid training and experience gives them the big picture view that they need to make your smile attractive and healthy at the same time. They take a conservative approach when it comes to your smile with a focus on the preservation of your natural teeth, which is especially important when working with veneers.
To help you better understand your treatment options our dentist will make a dental diagnostic wax-up simulating the outcome of the procedure or procedures that he recommends. This way, you’ll get a very good idea of what your new smile will look like before any work is even done!
How it works
Our dentist will make an impression of your tooth that he’ll send to a high-tech local lab that uses very precise, computerized technology in the milling of the porcelain. After your veneer is made it will be bonded to your tooth and you will see the beautiful result.
Our dentists use top-grade e.max® and Empress® porcelain for their veneers because of their superior strength and durability. They will occasionally use, on a case-by-case basis, a natural color “composite” material instead of porcelain to create a veneer.
Before and Afters
Diane received veneers and a bridge.
“One thing that Dr. Mike and Robin both stressed to me was that they wanted me to be happy with the end results and if I wasn’t pleased with any little thing to be sure and let them know.
“I love my new smile. I wish I had done this years ago.”
– Diane B.
Dental Bonding, the economical alternative to veneers
Dental bonding is one of the least expensive appearance-transforming dental procedures available in modern dentistry. If you have a chipped, stained or a broken tooth that needs to be repaired, dental bonding may be your cosmetic solution when finances are an issue.
Our dentists will usually recommend porcelain veneers to fix the types of dental problems described above. That’s because of the porcelain’s superior durability and stain resistant properties, which make veneers a better value in the end.
