  • Chipped, broken or damaged teeth
  • Replace old, unattractive fillings
  • Misshaped, or slightly crooked teeth
  • Undersized or small appearing teeth
  • Stained, yellow or and discolored teeth
  • Teeth with low response to whitening

Placing your Porcelain Veneers

Dr. Liska makes the process to getting a beautiful set of veneers a detailed and fully customized sequence. Read below for an overview of how the porcelain veneers are done.

Diagnostic models

Dr. Liska may use diagnostic tools such as study models when planning your new smile. These models help in the creation of an accurate restoration and ensure that your veneers fit correctly and look natural.

Shade and shape matching

Using a shade guide, Dr. Liska will help you find the most compatible look for your veneers. He will provide a selection of styles and shapes that you can choose from. It is important to design a smile that complements your looks and personality by matching your unique facial features.

Minimal preparation

Traditional veneers require preparation, meaning the natural tooth structure is reduced to allow space for the veneers to be placed on top. However, Dr. Liska has an option for Minimal-Prep Veneers which don’t require a significant reduction of natural tooth structure to be placed. He can install the veneers quickly and without a need for getting rid of a large portion of perfectly healthy tooth structure.

Temporary veneers

Dr. Liska can create a set of temporary veneers so that you can “try on” your smile. These temporary veneers have the added benefit of letting Dr. Liska make any fine adjustments to the veneers for maximized alignment, comfort and beauty.

Hand-crafted veneers

Once your veneers have been designed and customized, Dr. Liska will send the data to a trusted dental lab. The lab then produces high-quality porcelain veneers, carefully crafted to match and improve your smile in color, size and shape.

Dental Bonding

Porcelain VeneersDental bonding is a great alternative to veneers if finances are an issue or if there is not enough healthy tooth structure to place the veneers. Bonding can even be used to create a temporary mock-up so the patient can see what the end result will look like. Dr. Liska has extensive experience with bonding as an economical option to improve the aesthetics of a smile.

Dr. Liska uses a direct composite, where the material is applied in small amounts and stages to build a natural looking restoration that improves your smile in a similar way that veneers would. The material is made of composite resin and molds to each individual tooth. The composite resin is then treated with a special activation light that hardens and cures, making it a durable, strong and lasting restoration.
