Porcelain veneers are one of the best ways to change or enhance the appearance of a smile. Teeth can be altered by adding hand crafted pieces of porcelain or ceramic to change the color and translucency of teeth. Furthermore the shape, size, position and rotation of a tooth can all be modified to give a tooth and a smile an entirely different appearance. Some great examples are shown below. Like anything custom made, skill, craftsmanship and quality come into play. Our goal is to take the least amount of tooth structure off necessary to provide us the space in which to place the new veneers. Dr Snyder invented a very popular technique for allowing patients to see what their new smile could look like followed by the ability to take very small amounts of tooth structure away. This saves a lot of tooth structure compared to most techniques still used currently. We want to create a long lasting smile with the least change to the tooth structure.
All of the artistic craftsmanship and work shown on the following patients was performed by Todd Snyder, DDS. Dr Snyder is one of less than 1% of dentists that are Accredited Fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. As an international lecturer and author on cosmetic dentistry and many other topics, Dr Snyder has helped train dentists on the many facets of quality cosmetic dentistry. Dr Snyder is also very fortunate to have some extremely talented master ceramists that work very closely with him to create incredibly life-like restorations. All of this to give you the best result possible.
Every porcelain veneer case is uniquely different and complex which requires a different approach to create the best final outcome for each patient. Before any work is done on your teeth, Dr. Snyder will prepare a mock-up of your smile design on a model. This will help you get a glimpse of what is possible in transforming your smile, and will help you make sure he understands what you want. The amount of time to create a case has many variables as no two cases are the same. Some cases can be completed in as quickly as two weeks while other more complex cases can require upwards of one to two months to obtain the final results. Because of the custom nature of each case and the varying level of difficulty associated with each case the cost of veneers has a great degree of variability. We strive to provide you with a great smile and the least amount of alteration to tooth structure and some cases allow us to provide very minimal to no preparation veneers.
