We provide porcelain veneers because of their strength, beauty, and stain resistance. If you are considering this treatment, it is important that you work with a dentist like Dr. Heringer who has experience and an artistic eye for dentistry.
Dr. Heringer: There are many services that can be done in the smile area. You can do a simple thing as bonding or you can do a more aggressive technique as crowns and bridges. But there's an interim technique that uses the beauty of porcelain. It's called porcelain veneers. The veneer is an art and you really need to understand how to prepare your tooth properly. Also, you want to use the best porcelain possible to give you the most natural look. So for minimal tooth reduction, sometimes almost no tooth reduction, you get a beautiful cosmetic result with porcelain veneers.
They are strong. Maybe not as strong as crowns, but they look very life-like and natural and they look very nice when you smile. So whether you do one veneer to fix one tooth in the front or the front six, porcelain veneers are a serious thing to consider. It's just something that slips kind of over your tooth.
You should do a minimal amount of reduction to do a porcelain veneer properly so you have proper retention, proper shape and form. And then you really want to know where your veneers are made. Are they outsourced again to overseas? And what types of materials are in the porcelain veneer? There are different types of veneers. You want to make sure that you get the best porcelain veneer possible.
Lucy: I came to Dr. Heringer because I had some recent cosmetic work done at another dentist and I was just very, very dissatisfied with the results of that. I came in and I had a consultation with Dr. Heringer, and I had told him what I dislike about my smile. I showed him the veneers and the crowns that I had done, and I was just very, very upset when I came in. I believe I probably started to cry, and it's terrible because I was so dissatisfied with the results. I'm a big smiler. I love to smile. I'm a happy person. I love to show my teeth. It was so important for me to have a very beautiful smile.
Dr. Heringer knew that I was going to be a challenge. After visiting with him and after consulting with him we determined what we were going to do and decided that I was going to need a veneer and an implant done. The procedure, I didn't know what to expect. I've been through it all, but Dr. Heringer did things very, very differently. He made me feel very comfortable and he just reassured me that everything was going to be okay and that at the end I was going to be very, very happy with the result of it.
It did take a little bit of time to get the process, with a plan, what we're going to do, but I knew in the end that I'd have a wonderful, beautiful result. I was very, very pleased working with him. I am so pleased with the results. I love to smile. I get so many compliments on my smile. I've referred Dr. Heringer to people, strangers, friends, family, because I'm just so happy with the way everything has turned out.
I would recommend anybody come see Dr. Heringer if they have any concerns about the way their smile looks. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Heringer because he's amazing to work with. He knows what he's doing. He's very, very good at what he does. I'm so pleased with the results. He's so professional and his staff was wonderful to work with. It's just a great team. It's just a wonderful place to be and know that you're going to get a wonderful result.
