Doctor James Ross on veneers and Digital Smile Design
Porcelain veneers are a fantastic option. We can take spaces or teeth that are rotated and actually align those back up. They're actually small pieces of porcelain that are about the thickness of a finger nail. So very, very small. We can sometimes ... we can even do those without any preparation. If we do need any shaping it's very, very minor. What I like to do with the treatment is really sit down and listen to the patient of what they're hoping to accomplish. The nice thing about the porcelain veneers is the longevity is much longer for a porcelain veneer than it is for a composite. A composite you'll actually, things that you eat and drink, you'll actually absorb some of the staining and over a period of time, it will discolor. Whereas a porcelain stays the color that you have always had, which is great.
But you're able to build out a smile, to have a fuller smile. You're able to lengthen, close spaces, and it's an easy procedure. I'll usually take an imaging photograph first and we image that smile, sit down with the patient, if there's anything we want to change on that we're able to change that.
A real exciting new development that I've been involved in for the past year or so is digital smile design. And we use that with our porcelain veneers. We're able to actually take some videos of the patient so we see how they function. We see them talking, we see where the lip falls. We see, where when they smile, how much teeth that they actually show. And we actually can digitally use the facial analysis and algorithms to digitally give them that perfect smile. And what we do is we have them in before and we actually just have a small little impression where they'll be able to preview in 3D in their mouth before we ever start treatment, what they're final result will be. And it is amazing. We take a little video, put it up on the screen for them, and let them see who they can be. And I'm really excited about that and providing that for our patients.
Along with their many uses, dental veneers have several advantages. Teeth veneers from Dr. Ross:
- Look, feel, and can be treated and cared for like your natural teeth
- Are precisely colored and shaped to match your other teeth
- Are cemented in place and can last up to 20 years or longer

Simply put, veneers are thin pieces of material, typically porcelain, that are affixed to and shaped to complement your natural teeth. Whether they are applied for cosmetic or restorative dentistry purposes, they are a surefire way to rejuvenate your smile. You may opt for dental veneers to treat teeth that are:
- Chipped, damaged, or worn down
- Out of alignment or unevenly spaced
Here at Dr. James Ross, Family, Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry, we will select the best and most esthetic option for you whether that be Empress, e.max, or LiSi veneers depending on your complexion, bite, and a variety of individual factors. Made out of a specially treated ceramic, they maintain high durability even when cut to a fraction of a millimeter. After completing your comprehensive digital scan (no messy or uncomfortable impressions needed), our state-of-the-art lab will custom-fabricate your veneers for a perfect fit.
Unlike traditional veneers, which can require the irreversible removal of much of your natural tooth enamel, e.max dental veneers can often be placed with minimal enamel removal for a stronger, longer-lasting bond. Our e.max veneers will also look and feel less bulky and perfectly match the rest of your smile.
