Trust our skill in designing veneers that look and feel natural, hold up for a lifetime of confident smiles
Porcelain veneers are often characterized as a “technique-specific” procedure. This means that the outcomes and satisfaction that you get from this process are inextricably linked to the skill of the dental professional who is planning, designing, and placing these thin layers of dental ceramic in your teeth. With that in mind, Intentional Smiles of Edmond, Oklahoma, is in the best possible position to get the natural, stunning results you desire. Furthermore, the experience of getting porcelain veneers at our office is efficient, convenient, painless, and pleasant.
What to expect from veneers
Porcelain is a coveted material for use in cosmetic dentistry. The material reflects light and is translucent in a way that is similar to natural tooth enamel. It also resists stains well and is stronger than what many patients expect.
These cosmetic and strength-related properties are essential when exploring this treatment because veneers are designed to replace natural enamel. This protective covering of our teeth is stronger than skeletal bone; however, it can still be damaged due to wear and tear and behaviors such as teeth grinding (“bruxism”). When damage arises, it can show up as cosmetic imperfections, not limited to chipped surfaces, worn-down and overly short teeth, small cracks, and changes to the shape of the teeth.
As a stand-in for natural enamel, the porcelain is prepared and applied to the front surfaces of the teeth to cover up:
- Very dark stains
- Stubborn discoloration that does not respond to teeth whitening
- Gaps between teeth
- Uneven spacing
When prepared and fixed properly and securely to the teeth by a skilled dentist like Dr. Barton, the results from your treatment will look natural. They will look like your teeth and smile, only enhanced. In less experienced hands, veneers run the risk of sticking out too much, looking too white, or otherwise giving off a strange, fake, or “plastic” appearance. Dr. Barton and our team minimize these risks with our thoughtful and precise approach – from consulting with you on your options for treatment to the final adjustments and polishing of the veneers.

Veneers are thin handcrafted porcelain shields worn on the front of the tooth which improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or worn. Veneers are thin as contact lenses, and are an aesthetically pleasing option of closing gaps, lengthening teeth, and providing symmetry to make your smile more natural. Veneers are intended to last for many years without changing color. They are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry. Ask your dentist if veneers may be right for you.
