A winning smile can be beneficial in so many situations in life. Many people with imperfect teeth will contact their dentist, Dr. Damon P. Swenson, to explore their cosmetic restoration options. If the teeth in your smile have imperfections, like visible fillings, chips or deep stains, your dentist might recommend improving your smile with dental veneers.
Dental veneers are made from a special porcelain material that is custom crafted in a dental lab to fit over the face of each tooth in your smile. The porcelain material can be shaded to look just like natural tooth enamel, which is a white and enduring shade.
To begin treatment, Dr. Damon P. Swenson will examine your teeth and take a few X-rays. The X-rays will give the dentist the ability to assess the health and depth of the enamel on each tooth. If one or more teeth lack sufficient enamel or if you would like to make significant changes to the shape of the tooth, your dentist might recommend fitting the tooth for a porcelain dental crown.
Once the teeth are examined, Dr. Damon P. Swenson will make an impression of your smile. This impression will be sent to the dental lab where your custom dental veneers are custom crafted.
Dr. Damon P. Swenson will call you into CrossPointe Dental for the second appointment once your veneers are completed. During this appointment, a small amount of enamel will be removed from the face of each tooth before cementing your new dental veneers into place.
