If the teeth in your smile have small chips, deep stains or other minor imperfections, you might want to talk to the dentist at Johnson Ranch Dental about your options for improving your smile. One of the more popular options is to be fitted for dental veneers.

Essentially, dental veneers are thin porcelain shells, that are custom formed in dental lab to fit over the faces of the teeth in your smile. The porcelain material can be color matched to look like natural tooth enamel, making them indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

Being fitted for dental veneers requires two separate appointments. At the first appointment the dentist will examine your teeth and take a few X-rays. This helps determine if there is sufficient healthy enamel to anchor dental veneers. If one or more teeth lacks sufficient enamel of it has been compromised by past dental work, the dentist might recommend having that particular tooth restored by a crown.

Next the dentist takes an impression of the teeth in your smile, which will be sent to the dental lab where your custom dental veneers are crafted.

After the lab has finished your dental veneers, Johnson Ranch Dental will call you in for a second appointment to cement them in place.
