The appearance of your smile can play a significant role in your self-confidence. Many people with a smile suffering from chips, mismatched fillings, discolored tooth enamel or chronic staining issues will schedule a consultation appointment at Made Ya Smile Dental. During this session, Dr. Michael Kesner will assess the severity of the cosmetic imperfections and present you with the most effective solutions for improving the appearance of your smile.
One common and highly effective method he might recommend is to fit each tooth in your smile with a dental veneer.
These are custom-shaped shells that are made from a special dental-grade porcelain material. They will be custom crafted at a professional dental lab to match or enhance the natural shape of each tooth in your smile.
The porcelain material can be shaded to look just like white, natural tooth enamel. Since they aren’t as porous as tooth enamel, the dental veneers will make it easy to maintain your smile between dental cleanings.
Dr. Michael Kesner will examine each tooth in your smile and take a few X-rays. This ensures that there is sufficient strong enamel to later mount the veneers.
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 having the tooth completely restored with a dental crown.
Once all the teeth have been assessed, Dr. Michael Kesner will use a drill to remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth. This prepares the surfaces of the teeth to securely hold the dental veneer. Then, our team will take an impression of each tooth in your smile. This will be sent to a dental lab where your custom dental veneers will be produced.
A staff member at Made Ya Smile Dental will call you to schedule a second appointment when your veneers are ready. To install them onto your smile, Dr. Michael Kesner will cement them into place.
