At Timothy Rothwell, our friendly dental team is committed to helping you achieve a smile that feels beautiful and looks bright so that you can have optimal self-confidence. Many patients struggle with a variety of unwanted dental flaws, from tooth stains and chipped teeth to discolored dental fillings that make a smile look dull and unappealing.

To help you achieve your desired smile appearance despite multiple tooth imperfections, we invite you to consider dental veneers.

Dental veneers are a form of cosmetic dentistry that typically require two different dental visits to be completed. First, we will thoroughly inspect the health and structure of each tooth and take a few dental X-rays to ensure your smile is healthy enough for veneers. If the teeth don’t have enough tooth enamel to properly place a dental veneer, our dentist may recommend a porcelain dental crown as an alternative.

Next, we create a realistic impression of your teeth and submit it a local dental lab so that dental technicians can provide custom-made dental veneers. Prior to placing the completed veneers, we will need to remove a small amount of the enamel layer from each tooth receiving a veneer to ensure there is adequate space for the restorations. Then we can cement each veneer onto its tooth.

We welcome you to contact our team at 405-728-7632 today to speak with Dr. Tim about whether or not you should consider receiving dental veneers in OKC, Oklahoma.
