Dr. Tim in OKC, Oklahoma is happy to be able to provide dental veneers for our patients looking to overcome flaws in their smiles. Our dentist takes these wafer-thin shells, which are created out of porcelain or composite resin, over your front tooth surfaces to repair problem teeth. Veneers are customized to fit perfectly over your teeth, to give you the natural-looking smile you deserve.
What kinds of problems do dental veneers address? They can be used to fix chipped teeth, teeth that are discolored, stained, or misaligned. They can also restore enamel which has worn down to acid erosion and abnormally spaced teeth. And since the veneers are cemented to your natural tooth, they are permanent restoration options.
Let’s take a look at the process of placing your veneers:
1- A bit of the tooth surface will be removed so that the veneer can be bonded onto the tooth.
2- We will take an impression of the tooth, and then send it off to a dental lab.
3- At the lab, your veneer will be customized using the impressions we made so that it will fit correctly in the mouth and on the tooth.
4- After the veneer comes back, we will bond it to your tooth.
If your smile has sustained discoloration from your drinking habits, such as coffee, tea, soda or wine, our customized dental veneers are an excellent way to regain your whitened smile. And if have gaps in your teeth but can’t turn to braces to correct them, veneers can camouflage the gaps.
If dental veneers are the permanent solutions you are looking for, you have come to the right place! We invite you to give our Timothy Rothwell team a call at 405-728-7632, and we will help you get your smile ready just in time for the upcoming holiday season.
