Looking for a boost?

redefine Your Smile with Veneers

Porcelain veneers can transform your smile and change your life by brightening up and evening out the appearance of your teeth. Conservative, durable veneers can give you the boost you desire, so you can smile with confidence.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Thin. Durable. Beautiful.

Made from stunning porcelain, veneers are extremely thin and durable sheets that are placed on the front-facing side of your existing teeth. They can also be color-matched to the rest of your teeth, for a seamless smile that is made to last.

How does it work?

1. Discovery Interview

You'll meet with Dr. Chris Kim for a relaxed Discovery Interview, during which you can candidly explain your current feelings about your smile. This will help us understand your goals and the results you are trying to achieve. We take the time to learn your story and get to know you on a personal level before diving into treatment. That's the Livewell Difference.

2. Digital Smile Design

Dr. Chris Kim will then perform a visual examination of your teeth and gums, as well as digital x-rays to assess your oral health. He will keep a lookout for any issues that need to be addressed before placing veneers, like excessive tooth decay or gum disease. Then, we'll use our intraoral scanner to create a 3D model of your smile to input into our Digital Smile Design software. With this incredible technology, Dr. Chris Kim can show you what your smile will look like after treatment, before it even begins.

3. Placing Your Veneers

Before placing porcelain veneers, we will prepare your teeth. This process can include filling cavities, as well as reshaping the front surface of your teeth to help the veneers adhere and blend seamlessly with your smile. We work with world-class ceramists to craft your porcelain veneers. Once they’re ready, we’ll check the fit and make any necessary adjustments before permanently adhering them with a powerful dental cement.

Taking Care of Your New Smile

Porcelain veneers don’t require much in the way of special care or attention, making it easy to keep your smile looking bright and beautiful.

Lifespan of Veneers

Veneers are made from durable porcelain, and they routinely last 15-20 years for most patients. To extend the life of your veneers, continue to practice good oral hygiene practices, and avoid using your teeth as tools or biting anything that isn’t food. If you grind your teeth at night, a mouthguard can help keep your veneers from becoming damaged.

How to Care for Veneers

Carefully brushing and flossing your teeth is essential for the upkeep of veneers. Regular cleanings and checkups are also important to ensure tooth decay and gum disease are kept at bay.

What to Avoid

While porcelain veneers are sturdy, it is important to minimize the stress put on them to prolong their life. Avoid chewing on hard, crunchy foods, don’t use your teeth as tools, and, if you grind your teeth, get a night guard.

Great dentist!! I go for my regular dental cleanings/checkups, but also recently utilized their Snow teeth whitening system for my wedding. My smile never looked more pearly white, and was just what I needed before the big day!

I had a new tooth and implant installed by Dr. Kim and I am so thrilled with his work and his staff. I hate any type of pain and Dr. Kim made sure that I did not feel any discomfort. I highly recommend them for your dental needs.
