Porcelain Veneers

Hilton Head Island, Bluffton, South Carolina

Porcelain veneers are one of the most versatile and effective cosmetic dentistry treatments available today. These wafer-thin ceramic shells can be placed over the front of your teeth to correct a number of common cosmetic dental problems, such as:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Overly small or misshapen teeth
  • Permanently discolored teeth

With porcelain veneers, Hilton Head/Bluffton cosmetic dentist Dr. Timothy Gross can help you achieve a straight, white, evenly-shaped smile that restores your self-confidence.

Creating Your Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are usually placed over the course of two office visits. During your first visit, Dr. Gross will prepare your teeth by conservatively recontouring or removing a small amount of your tooth enamel. This allows your porcelain veneers to fit precisely over your teeth, producing a seamless smile line.

Once your teeth have been prepared, Dr. Gross will make an impression of your teeth and place a temporary set of veneers. The impression will then be sent to our master lab technician, who will custom-create your porcelain veneers to the exact specifications outlined by Dr. Gross.

Beautiful, Natural Results

We offer Empress® and E-max® veneers due to their natural appearance and incredibly strong composition. The short wait for these types of veneers to be produced is well worth it for the remarkable results they offer. Once your custom-made veneers have arrived at our office, you will return for placement. Dr. Gross will try-in your new permanent veneers to ensure a proper fit before bonding them to your teeth.

Once placed, your porcelain veneers will look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth. The only difference will be that your smile line will now be spotless, straight, and optimally proportioned, granting you a stunning smile that you are proud to show the world.

If you are interested in transforming your smile with porcelain veneers, please contact Dr. Timothy Gross today to schedule an initial consultation. We serve patients in the Hilton Head Island and Bluffton areas of South Carolina.
