The white and winning smile you enjoyed in your younger years can often fade due to dental staining, apparent fillings, discolored tooth enamel and minor dental fractures. This can leave you feeling self-conscious and wanting to explore your options for improving your smile’s appearance.
In many situations like this, the cosmetic dental specialists at Ridge View Smile Care in Logan, Utah may recommend dental veneers. These thin porcelain shells can be custom-crafted to fit the faces of your teeth to provide you with a gleaming white and easy to maintain smile.
This cosmetic dental process typically requires two separate appointments. Your Ridge View Smile Care dentist will start by inspecting each tooth and taking X-rays. This will help to assess the health and integrity of each tooth. If one or two teeth lack the sufficient enamel to secure a dental veneer our dentist might recommend having that tooth restored with a porcelain crown.
A detailed impression of each tooth in your smile will then be prepared. It will be sent to a professional dental lab that will produce your custom veneers. When the veneers are ready, we will call you back in to have them installed. This calls for removing a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth. The corresponding dental veneer will be cemented in place.
