Veneers can be used to cover dark stains, close gaps, even lengths and create a uniform, natural-looking smile. Excelling in cosmetic dentistry procedures, Dr. Guthrie will determine if porcelain or composite veneers are the best solution for you. She utilizes thin shells of porcelain or composite resin to enhance the look of your smile. The cosmetic enhancements are a safe and attractive procedure designed to repair chipped or discolored teeth as well as close gaps between teeth. Veneers offer numerous aesthetic benefits.
What to Expect:
Veneers can make a stunning improvement in the look of your smile. Your new veneers are custom-made shells of thin porcelain or composite resin that fit securely over your natural teeth. The material is stain resistant and designed to be durable and long-lasting. The procedure involves trimming a small portion of the enamel or surface of your tooth or teeth away to prepare the area for the treatment. An impression will be made to send to the dental lab so that each piece is customized to the exact size and shape of your tooth for the best results possible. Dr. Guthrie will then place the pieces onto your teeth and bond them using a special cement and ultraviolet light. Your teeth will be polished and your new smile will be ready to display!
