Your smile’s appearance plays an important role in many of your facial expressions and social interactions. If your teeth have been affected by cosmetic and physical imperfections, it can leave you feeling socially awkward.

In a situation like this you might want to schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Wilford Samson and our dental professionals. They can assess the specific imperfections affecting each tooth and the best method for improving your smile’s appearance. While a dental bleaching treatment can certainly whiten your smile, it cannot improve the appearance of physical imperfections. Our team might recommend fitting you for a series of dental veneers and porcelain crowns.

The process starts with your dentist examining each tooth in your smile. If one or two teeth have shallow tooth enamel or they have been compromised in some other way, it may be suggested to restore the problematic tooth with a porcelain dental crown. This will fully replace the tooth enamel layer with dental grade porcelain. Once this is done, a detailed impression of each tooth created for a dental veneer. This will be sent to a dental lab where dental technicians will shape each dental veneer to match the shape of its intended tooth.

A second appointment will be necessary when the veneers are ready. A drill will remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth. The veneers will then be carefully cemented in place and cured with a special light. A final polish and cleaning of any excess materials will give you a finished and beautiful smile.
