Imperfections in your smile can be sufficient cause for concern, even if there is no tooth decay or other dental health issues. An aesthetically compromised smile can cause you to feel awkward during social interaction. At New Albany Family Dentistry, our highly trained team can offer dental veneers to improve multiple smile imperfections and restore your self-confidence.

These thin, porcelain shells are cemented onto the front surface of each tooth that has a dental imperfection. Porcelain material is easily shaded to match your natural tooth enamel, and it is resistant to deep stains in the future.

Your dentist will want to perform a full examination of your smile and take dental X-rays of your teeth to determine that your smile has the healthy tooth enamel it needs to anchor dental veneers. If one or more of your teeth do not have the required amount of healthy enamel, or if they have been compromised by older dental work, a dental crown may be a more suitable option.

We will then create a detailed dental impression that includes each tooth so that the dental lab can use it as a model to create your custom dental veneers. When the completed veneers have been sent to our office, we will invite you in for a second appointment, during which Dr. Timothy Backiewicz will need to extract a minor amount of tooth enamel from the front of each tooth to allow the veneer to be cemented in place. Then, your new smile is ready!
