Many adults suffer cosmetic imperfections on the teeth in their smile. This might come in the form of chips, stains or mismatched fillings. Fortunately, Dr. Galina Zhukova is well versed in a wide range of cosmetic dentistry treatments that can give you the winning smile you deserve.
Dental veneers can be used to remedy teeth with chips and deep stains. The porcelain veneers are custom crafted in a dental lab. They are made out of a porcelain material that will fit over the faces of the teeth in your smile. Once they are installed, they will look exactly like natural tooth enamel.
At the same time, the porcelain material is not as receptive to stains as natural tooth enamel. Thus, your smile will stay whiter for a longer period of time.
Your dentist will first examine the teeth in your smile and take a few X-rays to assess the health of each tooth. It’s important to make sure that there is sufficient strong enamel to securely mount a veneer. If one of the teeth in your smile has been compromised by past dental work or if it lacks sufficient enamel, he may recommend having it restored by a dental crown.
With the examination completed, he will then take a detailed impression of all the teeth in your smile. This will be sent a dental lab to be used as a guide for crafting your custom porcelain dental veneers.
Dr. Galina Zhukova will call you to schedule the second appointment when your veneers are ready. During this appointment, he will remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth before cementing your new dental veneers into place.
