Porcelain Veneers in Sunbury
At Premier Dental of Sunbury, we offer dental veneers as part of our cosmetic dentistry services in Sunbury. Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain or resin composite that are bonded to the front of the teeth, providing a natural, attractive look. They can be used to fix chipped, stained, misaligned, worn down, uneven or abnormally spaced teeth. Veneers can quickly produce a stunning change in your smile!
Veneers are not permanent, generally lasting 5 to 10 years before needing to be replaced. They are very durable, however, giving you a beautiful, long-lasting smile. Get started on your path to a great looking smile with a consultation at Premier Dental of Sunbury. Dr. Doug Hudoba and the staff will work with you to see if Porcelain Dental Veneers are an option to achieve your long-term dental goals.
When are veneers desirable?
- When you want to improve the look of your teeth – their shape, uniformity, and color
- For crooked or misshapen teeth
- If you have badly discolored or stained teeth
- If some or all of your teeth are too small or too large
- When there are undesirable or uneven spaces between teeth
- If you have a chipped tooth
- For worn-down teeth, which are sometimes caused by teeth grinding, or bruxism
What are the advantages of dental veneers?
- They provide a natural tooth appearance.
- They offer an immediate result with aesthetic appeal.
- Porcelain veneers are stain resistant.
- The color of a porcelain veneer can be selected such that it makes dark teeth appear whiter.
- Veneers offer a conservative approach to changing a tooth’s color and shape; veneers generally don’t require the extensive shaping prior to the procedure that crowns do, yet offer a stronger, more aesthetic alternative.
How are dental veneers placed?
Dr. Doug will remove a small amount of the tooth surface (for better adhesion) to allow the placement of the veneer. An impression is taken of your tooth and sent to our dental laboratory. The dental veneer is then custom made to fit the tooth and mouth. The veneer is bonded to the tooth with resin cement.
Do dental veneers require special care?
Dental veneers do not require any special care. Continue to follow good oral hygiene practices, including brushing and flossing as you normally would. Even though porcelain veneers resist stains, your dentist may recommend you avoid stain-causing foods and beverages (for example, coffee, tea, or red wine.)

At Premier Dental of Sunbury, our mission is to help patients restore their smile. Our custom made porcelain veneers are one way that we fix teeth that may cause a tight-lipped, no teeth smile. Dr. Doug Hudoba and the team at Premier Dental of Sunbury have provided dental veneers for many satisfied patients.
The process of applying veneers is simple and can be done in as few as two visits. At your initial consultation, Dr. Doug will provide a thorough exam of your damaged tooth/teeth to ensure they are stable enough for dental veneers. Next, Dr. Doug will use dental molds to get a precise shape and size of your tooth/teeth, provide a color pallet to choose the closest color to your existing teeth and send the molds to our dental lab.
At your second appointment, Dr. Doug will 'rough' up your tooth/teeth and apply a bonding agent, and affix your custom-made dental veneers to your existing teeth. Before you leave, though, we want to be sure you have instructions for caring for your new dental veneers. We'll provide instructions on brushing and flossing, what types of mouthwash and toothpaste to use, and what foods and drink to avoid in the short-term. The office staff will also schedule a 6 month follow up appointment to make sure your new porcelain veneers look great.
