An unappealing smile caused by chips, old cavities, or discolored teeth can hamper your social life. This can even be a significant problem if you work at a business or industry that requires face-to-face interaction. For a smile in this condition, Dr. Larry Hoffman, Steven Flicker, & David Sher might recommend dental veneers.
These porcelain shells cemented onto the faces of each tooth in your smile are a convenient and effective dental solution for a smile afflicted with multiple visual imperfections.
This is a two-stage cosmetic treatment. It begins with a member of our dental team inspecting each tooth in your smile and taking X-rays. This will help us assess the health and integrity of each tooth. If one or two teeth lack the sufficient enamel to secure a dental veneer, your dentist might recommend having that tooth restored with a porcelain dental crown.
Your dentist will then remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth. Next, they will cast a detailed impression of each tooth in your smile. This will be sent to a professional dental lab technician who will produce your custom veneers.
Once the dental lab tech has completed your veneers, we will call you back in to have them installed. The corresponding dental veneer will be cemented into place.
