As the years go by, teeth can develop deep stains. If this is compounded by chips and visible fillings, you might be interested in achieving a more appealing smile. Dental veneers are a common cosmetic dental treatment your dentist, Dr. James R. Healy, advocates to improve teeth that are suffering from multiple cosmetic imperfections.
These porcelain veneers can improve the appearance of teeth with small chips and stains. The porcelain veneers are custom crafted to fit over the face of the teeth in your smile. They can be shaded to match any color of enamel you would like for your smile. As an added bonus the porcelain material will not be receptive to future stains, making it easier to maintain your white smile in the long term.
During your first appointment, Dr. James R. Healy will examine all of the teeth in your smile to make sure you have sufficient enamel to secure a veneer. If you have one or more compromised teeth, he might advise you to have the entire enamel layer of the tooth replaced with a porcelain dental crown.
Dr. James R. Healy will then make a detailed impression of each tooth in your smile. This will be sent to a dental lab to serve as a guide while the technicians work to produce your final veneers.
When the veneers are ready, Dr. James R. Healy will call you back in for a follow-up appointment. Then, he will remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth before cementing the porcelain shell into place.
