Dental Veneers


Rendering of jaw with porcelain veneer on toothThere are many ways to make cosmetic changes to a tooth, big or small. At Mt. Hood Dental Clinic, we specialize in using both dental veneers and dental bonding to fix the appearance of an unsightly tooth. Depending on your circumstance, we may recommend veneers, bonding, or a combination of both!

Reasons for Veneers


A dental veneer is a less invasive alternative to a dental crown. The restoration is a razor-thin, custom-designed covering that fits over the front surface of a tooth. We may recommend veneers to change the size, shape, length, or color of your teeth. More specifically, veneers can correct teeth that are severely discolored, worn down, chipped, cracked, misaligned, uneven, gapped, or abnormally shaped.

Most veneers are fabricated using porcelain due to its cosmetic value. Porcelain is not only durable but also best mimics the appearance of natural enamel. We will also choose a shade of porcelain that matches or improves the current brightness of your smile.

Dental Veneer Procedure


The dental veneer procedure typically requires two appointments. During your first appointment, Dr. Jeremy Kato will begin by removing a minor amount of enamel from the front of the tooth to make room for the veneer. This amount is so small that the procedure does not usually require the application of a local anesthetic. Once we have removed the right amount, we will make an impression of the tooth. This impression is sent to our laboratory where our technicians will use it to fabricate your final veneer.

You will return to our office once the veneers are ready to be placed. During this appointment, we will slightly etch the surface of the tooth. A rough exterior strengthens the bond between the enamel and the veneer. Next, we will check the fit. We may need to make some minor adjusts to ensure there are no issues with your bite. Once we are satisfied, the veneer will be permanently bonded to the tooth.
