A white and winning smile bolsters your self-confidence and can even improve your overall quality of life. So, if your teeth suffer from cosmetic imperfections, like stains, chips, or old fillings, it could leave you looking for answers. Fortunately, your dentists, Drs. Cleveland, Allmand, and Carlson are trained and experienced in a myriad of cosmetic dental solutions. One of the more common options they recommend is to have your teeth fitted for dental veneers.
First, they will need to examine your teeth and take some X-rays. This helps them assess the health and integrity of each tooth. It’s important to make sure that none of the teeth are suffering from tooth decay and it’s also important to have an understanding of the existing tooth enamel.
If one or two teeth lack the sufficient enamel to secure a dental veneer, your dentists might recommend having it restored with a porcelain dental crown.
Your dentists will then remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth. Then he will create a detailed impression of each tooth in your smile. This will be sent to a professional dental lab to serve as a guide while the technicians create your new dental veneers.
We will call you to schedule your second appointment when the veneers are ready. During this session, your dentists will cement the corresponding veneer in place with a dental adhesive.
The porcelain material of the dental veneers will not be as receptive to future stains as your natural tooth enamel. With proper care and cleaning, you can have a white and easy-to-maintain smile for many years to come.
