Dental Veneers Help You Smile with Confidence
Imperfections in your teeth make you self-conscious about your smile. Instead of hiding your smile or not smiling at all, turn to our dental veneer dentist for treatment that gives you the confidence to grin, chuckle, and laugh out loud.
Veneers are ultra-slim shells made of porcelain or resin that attach to the front of your teeth. They provide camouflage for discolored or misshapen teeth. Employing veneers, we can change the shape, size, length, or color of your teeth. These tooth-colored shells cover teeth that are chipped, worn down, or broken, as well as those with space in-between.
Dental Veneer Dentist Transforms Smiles
Ask our porcelain veneer dentist to transform your smile in three appointments. The initial visit serves as a consultation. At the second visit, our dentist removes a tiny bit of enamel—about the thickness of one veneer—to prepare your teeth for the new veneers. Then, he makes a mold or impression of your tooth, which goes to a lab, which creates your veneers.
When the porcelain veneers come back from the lab, our dentist checks their fit and color and then cleans, polishes, and etches your teeth to prepare them for the new veneers. He applies dental cement and carefully places the veneers before using a special light to harden the cement so the veneers adhere securely. After making final adjustments, we have you look in a mirror to admire the results.
Porcelain Veneers—The Right Treatment for Your Teeth
This treatment is more involved than bonding, but less so than getting a crown and the cost falls in-between both. Rely on our dentist makes a decision about which treatment is best for you after hearing of your concerns and examining your teeth. This treatment is also referred to as partial veneers as the shells cover only the front of your teeth, as opposed to a crown, which covers the entirety of a tooth.
