Porcelain Veneers vs. Whitening

Few things provide an immediate boost to your appearance the way a whiter smile can. In addition to taking years off your appearance, the smile of your dreams can give you the confidence you need to shine. If you’re looking to improve your smile, we offer two popular treatments: porcelain veneers and teeth whitening.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain that fit snugly over your natural teeth. First, we design your veneers based on your smile goals. We’ll also need to remove a small portion of your outer enamel to ensure a snug fit. Finally, we’ll bond the porcelain veneers to your teeth, resulting in a smile that looks natural and beautiful.


At Rocky Ridge Dental, we offer an at-home tooth whitening system. Because our products are professional grade, you can rest assured that you’ll safely get the dramatic results you want, but in the convenience of your own home. The teeth whitening process involves two visits to our office. During the first, we will take a mold of your teeth in order to create a customized whitening tray that perfectly fits your mouth. Once the trays are ready, you will come back for your second appointment. There, we will ensure that your trays fit properly, and we’ll provide you with instructions to maximize your wear time. Your goals for whitening will determine how long and how often you need to wear your whitening trays.
