Smile imperfections can leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile. This drives many people to explore their options for the white and even smile they’ve always wanted. If you feel this way, you should consult with Dr. Amanda Rhoades to find out the best option for restoring the appearance of your smile.

Dental veneers are thin, porcelain shells that are cemented to the face of your teeth. They are a popular option for improving your smile if you have teeth with minor chips as well as deep stains. The porcelain material can be shaded to look like natural tooth enamel, making them indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

It often requires two separate appointments for your dentist to install custom dental veneers on your smile.

During the first appointment, your dentist will examine your teeth and take a few X-rays. It’s important to make sure that there is sufficient enamel on the tooth to later mount the veneers. If one or more teeth lacks sufficient enamel or if it has been compromised by past dental work, we might recommend having the questionable tooth completely restored with a dental crown.

Then, your dentist will make an impression of the teeth in your smile. This impression is sent to our professional dental lab where your custom dental veneers are made.

When the lab has completed your dental veneers, our Eastern Hills Dental team will call you in for the second appointment. During this appointment, your dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth before cementing your new dental veneers in place.

If you are interested in being fitted for dental veneers, you should call Eastern Hills Dental at 513-231-7474 to schedule an appointment.
