Small chips, old dental work and deep stains on the teeth in your smile, it could leave you wanting to explore your cosmetic restoration options. Even though whitening products and procedures can effectively brighten tooth enamel they do not address damage to the enamel or noticeable past dental work.

One popular and effective option available to you, is to have Artistic Dentistry fit the teeth in your smile with custom dental veneers.

Dental veneers are basically thin porcelain shells, that can be fitted over the faces of the teeth in your smile. They are custom crafted in a dental lab to match the natural shape of the teeth, so as to be indistinguishable from natural tooth enamel Dental veneers can be shaded to appear just like natural enamel, only whiter.

Two separate procedures are required to fit your teeth for dental veneers.

The first procedure involves Artistic Dentistry thoroughly examining your teeth to make sure there you have sufficiently strong enamel on each tooth. If you have one or two teeth that have been compromised by past dental work, or the enamel layer is simply too thin to anchor a dental veneer, Artistic Dentistry might recommend having that tooth fitted for a crown.

Then Artistic Dentistry will form an impression of the teeth in your smile. This is sent to dental lab where your custom dental veneers are custom crafted.

Once the dental lab has completed your custom dental veneers Artistic Dentistry will call you back in to for the second appointment to fit the veneers onto your teeth This involves removing a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth before cementing your new dental veneers in place.

If you are interested in being fitted for dental veneers, please feel free to call Artistic Dentistry at 949-366-1177 to schedule an appointment.
