Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you when you walk into a room. So, if your smile has been affected by chips, stains, discolored tooth enamel, or visible fillings, it can significantly hamper your self-esteem. To improve a smile so seriously troubled, Dr. Gemma Dalton might recommend dental veneers.
This highly effective cosmetic restoration method involves cementing custom-shaped porcelain shells onto each tooth in your smile. The porcelain material is not as porous as natural tooth enamel. This prevents stains from setting in, giving you a white and easy-to-maintain smile.
To accurately fit you for dental veneers, your dentist will need to examine each tooth in your smile. It’s important to determine the overall health of each tooth and the depth of the available tooth enamel. If she finds an issue with one or more teeth, she might recommend having it restored with a porcelain dental crown. The special dental-grade porcelain will have the same bright shade and properties of the dental veneers.
Our specialist will then use a drill to remove small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth. Next, she will make a detailed impression of each tooth that will be fitted for a veneer. This will be sent to a dental lab to serve as a guide while the technicians work to produce your final veneers.
When the dental lab technician has completed the veneers, we will call you back in for a second appointment. Your dentist will then use a powerful dental adhesive to cement the final veneers into place.
