Porcelain Veneers in Salt Lake City, Utah
What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers, also called dental veneers or tooth veneers, are a thin layer of porcelain that is bonded to the surface of your teeth to create a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
While porcelain by itself can be brittle, when properly bonded to your natural teeth, veneers are strong and durable.
Generally, people will select porcelain veneers to correct or repair teeth that are discolored, worn, chipped or misaligned. When installed by an experienced professional, porcelain veneers produce a smile that is natural and beautiful.
Insist on education and experience
While many dentists will insist that cosmetic dentistry is their specialty, very few have the training and experience of Dr. Rick Austin at Gateway Dental Arts. In fact, Dr. Austin is one of only three dentist in Utah (and only a select few across the country), to have graduated from the Advanced Dental Studies program at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute.
And while training is important, Dr. Austin also has nearly 30 years of experience. Since beginning his practice, he’s placed an amazing 50,000 cosmetic porcelain restorations.
Quick & easy treatment with our ceramist
At Gateway Dental Arts, porcelain veneers/crowns can be completed in just two visits. Most all dentists have their porcelain work made through a mail order facility lab. The work that comes back is pretty much “how things are going to look!”
So patients, and to a certain extent the dentist, presents the final work and “look” as “this is how it is”, with no ability for customization, fine-tuning and changes. The ceramists that we work with meet with the patients for a thorough discussion of shade and shape, from the very first visit. Temporary veneers are made from working models with the new smile integrated in, so patients can “test drive” their new smile? Upon the insertion visit, modifications of shape, shade and position can be made easily and conveniently due to the on-site equipment available to make these changes. These changes can happen in as little as 15 minutes, without sending them via mail to an off-site laboratory.
The ceramist is always present at the time of insertion to make sure everything goes smoothly and that our patients are completely satisfied. Each patient signs an agreement of, “I love my new smile, please put them in permanently!” to assure complete and total satisfaction. If patients have any concerns whatsoever, we take care of them at this critical point, so we know our patients will be completely satisfied! This makes our office very unique! To see and approve cosmetic treatments before final insertion. We pride ourselves in delivering the most cosmetic and durable dental treatments, to the patient’s own liking, so they don’t have to get things done over and over again!
