of Porcelain Veneers
Quick, Non-invasive Treatment
Dental veneers can be used to achieve a healthy, beautiful-looking smile, without having to undergo lengthy orthodontic treatment or other more invasive procedures.
Veneers are incredibly natural-looking and are more color-stable than cosmetic bonding. The porcelain material is highly aesthetic and the dental veneers are very thin, ranging from 0.3mm to 0.5mm in thickness.
Dental veneers are resilient and have a life expectancy of 15 to 20 years with proper care. The porcelain material is stain-resistant, durable, and long-lasting.
I was sad when Dr. Korus retired, but Dr. Whidden is excellent! He is very knowledgeable and skilled, and quite witty, too. Facility is brand new with the latest in dentistry equipment. Hygienists, assistants and support staff are all very nice, too.
Dr. Whidden and all the staff in the Vernon office have been absolutely amazing. For years, I've been terrified of going to the dentist, and have had several bad experiences. Dr. Whidden made me feel so comfortable, and I couldn't be happier with the level of care my teeth and I have received! :) Thanks so much!!

A veneer is a thin restoration that completely covers the front surface of a tooth to mask dental flaws. Laboratory technicians fabricate each veneer out of high-quality dental porcelain to precisely fit the tooth and improve the appearance of the entire smile. Veneers are a cosmetic solution and are not intended for restorative purposes. For this reason, they are only used on the anterior teeth, or those that are most visible when a patient smiles.
How This Solution Works
So how do I know if this procedure is right for me?
Am I a Candidate
You Are in Good Dental Health
To be considered a good candidate for any cosmetic dentistry treatment, you should be free of dental problems such as cavities, root canal infection, and gum disease. If you have any of these dental issues, they will first need to be addressed with restorative dentistry treatment.
You Have Sufficient Enamel
Before veneers are placed, a small amount of tooth enamel is removed. This prevents the veneers from looking bulky and keeps the final results flush with surrounding teeth. Patients must have a healthy amount of enamel present to allow for this step of the procedure.
You Are Comfortable with Permanent Dental Alteration
Because a small amount of tooth enamel is removed, this treatment is permanent. Patients should understand that if their veneers become damaged or reach the end of their lifespan, they will need to be replaced.
You Don't Grind and Clench
Chronic grinding, a condition known as bruxism, puts excess pressure on veneers. This can increase the risk of the veneers becoming damaged or dislodged prematurely.
Your Misalignment Issues Are Minor
Veneers can address small misalignment issues, but if you have severely crooked teeth, orthodontic treatment may be a better solution for your needs.
These doctors are amazing. They really make you feel comfortable and are kind. I recommend them!
I was a new patient with some discomfort in my mouth, and these guys got me in right away. The dentist was knowledgeable, efficient, and very reassuring. Highly recommend.
