A white and winning smile helps you in many business and social situations. However, stains brought on by dark beverages and foods can dull your once lustrous smile. This could also be compounded by past dental work that no longer matches the surrounding tooth enamel. In a situation like this, your Wildwood Family & Cosmetic Dentistry dentist might suggest having porcelain dental veneers installed to improve the cosmetic appeal of your smile.
Your dentist will start treatment by inspecting each tooth in your smile and taking X-rays. This will help him 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.
At the end of the appointment, Dr. Michael O'Neill will create a detailed impression of each tooth in your smile. This will be sent to a professional dental lab where your custom veneers will be made.
We will call you to schedule your second appointment once the dental lab technician has completed your veneers. During this session, the dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth. Then, the corresponding veneer will be cemented in place.
With the proper care and cleaning, your dental veneers will serve you with a white and winning smile for many years to come.
