Transform Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers
With porcelain veneers, you can achieve the beautiful-looking smile you have always wanted. These thin shells of durable ceramic are bonded to the front of teeth to conceal a range of cosmetic imperfections. In order to provide patients with different options, Drs. Tim and John Assey offer both traditional and prepless porcelain veneers at Assey Dental Associates in Mt. Pleasant, SC. Prepless options include Micro-Thin Veneers, DURAthin® Veneers, and LUMINEERS®. We will examine your smile and discuss your goals in detail during a personal consultation to determine the type of veneers that is right for you.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Veneers can transform a smile in several ways. By completely covering visible surfaces of teeth, veneers can hide:
Our veneers are made of dental-grade porcelain, which is extremely durable, lifelike, and available in a range of different shades. In addition to traditional porcelain veneers, we also offer LUMINEERS®, a minimum-prep version.
When planning a veneers treatment, we take extra steps to ensure the satisfaction of our patients. Before ever touching your teeth, we will first take traditional impressions of your smile as well as pictures of your face. These images will be sent directly to Smile Designs By Rego, an advanced dental lab that is renowned for the high-quality restorations they provide. Technicians at the lab will use the impressions and pictures to create a temporary set of veneers known as a wax-up. Once the wax-up is ready, you will meet with Dr. Tim Assey or Dr. John Assey to see how your veneers will look.

After making any necessary adjustments based on your feedback, we will then prepare your teeth for traditional veneers placement by removing a small layer of enamel. This step is performed to ensure that your veneers will form a secure bond and remain in proper alignment. Next, we will take a final set of impressions and send them back to Smile Designs By Rego. Over the next few weeks, your veneers will be carefully crafted from dental-grade porcelain. Once your traditional veneers are ready, you will return to our practice to have them bonded securely in place, instantly enhancing the aesthetics of your smile.
Advances in dentistry have led to a new, incredibly thin type of veneers known as prepless veneers, which can be placed with little or no teeth reshaping. However, prepless veneers are not right for all patients and we will review your candidacy during a personal consultation. If we determine that prepless veneers can best achieve your goals, we will take impressions and send them to a lab. When you return to our practice to receive your prepless veneers, we will first ensure a proper fit before bonding them in place.
