Many of our patients ask what they can do to have a perfect smile. Using cosmetic dentistry to achieve a beautiful smile can boost your confidence and self-esteem. If you are interested in cosmetic dentistry, veneers might be a good solution.
Dental veneers are coverings that are permanently placed on the front of your teeth. They work well with teeth that may be chipped, crooked or stained, but otherwise are healthy. At Webster Groves Dental, we use porcelain for our veneers. Porcelain is strong and will ensure your veneers will last for years to come. They require less tooth enamel to be removed compared to a crown and are more stain resistant.
Veneers in Webster Groves, MO
Getting veneers is a relatively simple process. It usually only requires two appointments to achieve a smile worth smiling about. Dr. Wenzel will begin the appointment by minimally reshaping your tooth to fit the veneer. Impressions will be taken and then you and the doctor will decide the shade of your veneer. For a perfect shade match, patients will often visit the local dental lab that is making their veneers. This high-quality lab will use their artistry and perfectionism to make a customized veneer for your smile. Once the veneer is finished and sent back to our office, Dr. Wenzel will bond the veneer to your tooth. You walk out of our office showing off your new smile!
