A lustrous white smile can certainly help bolster your self-confidence in many of life’s social settings. Unfortunately, chronic dental stains from dark beverages or occasionally tobacco use can hamper your self-image while also prove difficult to improve with retail grade whitening products.
In a situation like this, your dentist might recommend fitting you for a series of dental veneers in conjunction with porcelain dental crowns.
This involves Dr. Casey Witty examining each tooth in your smile. If one or two teeth have compromised tooth enamel or an existing dental filling he might advocate replacing the entire tooth enamel layer with a porcelain dental crown.
After preparing any teeth that need dental crowns, Dr. Casey Witty will create a detailed impression of each tooth intended for a dental veneer. It will be sent to a dental lab where dental technicians will shape each dental veneer to match the shape of its intended tooth.
You will need to return to Dr. Casey Witty’s dental office for a second appointment once the necessary dental work has been completed. After securing any dental crowns in place, we will use a drill to remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth. The veneers will then be carefully cemented in place.
