Porcelain veneers are a great option for someone that just doesn't like their smile. It's really remarkable. I do a lot of veneer cases and it's amazing always to me when I take my before photos and then I see those patients year down the road. I compare how they're smiling down the road after their smile is fixed to when they first came in, looking like this, they don't want to smile, they don't even want to show you. You ask them to smile and they kind of go like this. Once you can restore their smile, what a dramatic difference it changes in their personality, really. You see that really joy in them come out.
Most people don't like to smile for a number of reasons. One, either their teeth are discolored. They're crooked. They have gaps. They might show too much gums in their smile. A lot of times it's accidents. Patients have had accidents where teeth have chipped and broken and they have been rebuilt with different bonding materials and filling materials and it stains and discolors. I'd say the other area that I often see is old dentistry. Someone comes in that's had maybe some older porcelain work done that doesn't look right. Those cases then are very rewarding. We can take something old off and replace it with new materials, new technique that really looks natural or as natural as beautiful new teeth.
One of the other areas of my practice that I often see is redoing dentistry. Sometimes they've gone to their family dentist and had some veneer work done or crown work and they're not happy with the aesthetic result of it, so they're seeking out maybe someone that might emphasize it more like our office and redoing those cases. It's unfortunate but it happens. It happens all too often. They're rewarding also. It's really nice then to give them a smile that they're proud to have and share.

Call (801) 747-8531 to schedule a consultation at Rod Gleave, DMD. A member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), Dr. Gleave has extensive training in both the art and science of veneers. That is why we can offer several dental veneer options in our Salt Lake City, UT dentist office, including no-preparation, no-anesthetic veneers.
Choose From Multiple Dental Veneer Options
Veneers are ultra-thin shells of porcelain or other material that fit over the front surfaces of teeth. Each one is created separately and bonded into place over the natural tooth to create the ideal fit and look. The porcelain, once bonded to the tooth, is extremely durable and has a color, translucency, and texture similar to natural tooth enamel.
Dr. Gleave offers a variety of dental veneer options to transform your smile. They include:
- Traditional porcelain veneers, which are super strong and can be customized to match the shade you want
- Composite veneers, which can also be customized to appear as bright as you like
- Prepless veneers, which require no preparation of your teeth before being applied
- Lumineers, which are strong yet incredibly thin for a natural look and require minimal to no preparation
The entire dental veneer procedure is relatively quick depending on your mouth’s condition. In some cases, our patients can walk out with their new smile after one visit!
Be Completely Happy With Your Custom Veneers
Dr. Gleave will take lots of digital photos of your teeth, lip position, gum height, and effect of your opposing teeth and bite. He’ll then take no-fuss impressions of your teeth to better understand their size, position, and bite. Afterward, he’ll discuss with you how many teeth will need veneers.
Here comes the fun part: you consult our smile catalog to pick out the shape, size, and desired color for your veneers! It’s totally up to you, but Dr. Gleave will offer his expert opinion to ensure you get the best veneers for your desired results.
We make provisional veneers for you to wear as a “trial smile” to evaluate the look and feel of your new smile. Any changes to tooth position, shape, or color will be communicated to the ceramist who makes your final veneers. When your veneers are ready, we will preview them. If everything looks perfect, Dr. Gleave securely bonds them to your teeth.
