Cosmetic dentistry is a specific branch in the dental industry that focuses on improving the appearance of your smile. If your teeth suffer from multiple cosmetic imperfections, like discolored tooth enamel, chips, or minor areas of dental attrition, our dentists might recommend installing dental veneers over your smile.

The process starts with our dentists examining each tooth in your smile. If one lacks sufficient enamel to secure a veneer, they will likely recommend having the tooth restored with a porcelain dental crown.

Then, they will use a drill to remove a miniscule amount of enamel from the face of each tooth. Next, they will create a detailed impression of each tooth destined for dental a veneer. This will be sent to a dental lab where dental-grade porcelain will be shaped to match each individual tooth.

A second appointment will be required when your veneers are ready. Our dentists will then carefully cement the veneers into place.
