Treatment Goals Are Set
Treatment begins with a discussion of goals and expectations to identify how we can best serve your needs. Photos and models of your teeth are taken during the initial visit, and Dr. Schmidt goes over our menu of available tooth shapes.
How It Works
A prototype is designed according to patient preferences. The patient wears temporary veneers for a few days and upon approval, ceramists create final veneers. In addition to working with the highest degree of precision and consideration for patient complexion and facial esthetics, we partner with an outstanding dental lab and ceramist who creates beauty in the tiniest details of veneers, crowns, and other restorations.
The Science Behind Veneers
Veneer treatment is the application of a very thin layer of material onto the front and side surfaces of a tooth or teeth. This cosmetic enhancement may be completed with material such as composite resin or porcelain, which Dr. Schmidt offers. Porcelain is a material that closely resembles natural enamel and is capable of achieving the most natural, most beautiful result. This material is very durable and will not stain.
Veneers As Cavity Protection
Veneers can strengthen teeth, and provide a small amount of protection against tooth decay in the covered portion of the tooth. However, it is important to note that veneers cover only the front surfaces of teeth. Brushing and flossing remain vitally important to ongoing oral health and the prevention of cavities on the back surfaces of teeth and in between teeth.
Create your best smile with our experienced team.
Veneers may not be suitable in every situation. Dr. Schmidt performs a dental exam during consultation for veneers in order to determine if a patient is a good candidate for this treatment. Patients with upper and lower teeth that do not fit together well may achieve ideal results by first correcting bite issues with Invisalign. When bite issues are addressed, the stress placed on teeth will decrease and veneers can last a very long time. Teeth that have large fillings may be best treated with a metal free dental crown that will both fortify and enhance the smile.
