Dental veneers are an ultra-thin, custom-made shell placed on the front of your tooth to improve your smile. They are an answer to unsightly, discolored, or misshapen and misaligned teeth. While veneers can be made of porcelain or resin composite material, Dr. Rotroff and Dr. Wasselle choose to use porcelain material to cover imperfections in your teeth. Dental veneers are ultra-thin which allows your cosmetic dentist to transform your smile with a minimally invasive preparation as compared to dental crowns.
At your first visit, Dr. Rotroff or Dr. Wasselle consult with you to determine what changes you would like to see in your smile. They take X-rays, examine your teeth, and may take impressions to determine if there is enough of your original teeth left for veneers.
At the second visit, Dr. Rotroff or Dr. Wasselle numb your mouth so that the procedure is pain-free. They take a thin layer of enamel from the teeth you want to improve. They make a model of the teeth and send it to our state of the art lab for fabrication. They provide a temporary veneer until the next visit.
At your final visit, your dentist will ensure the color match, shape and fit are perfect before cementing your veneers into place. You will leave the office with a brand new smile.
