Chips, old fillings, tooth decay and chronic staining problems can all leave you with an unappealing smile. Many people with a smile that is suffering from multiple cosmetic imperfections will contact Drs. Babcock and Bill to explore their cosmetic dental solutions. One of the most effective methods they recommend is to restore the appearance of your smile with dental veneers.
These custom-shaped porcelain shells are designed in a dental lab to match the faces of each tooth in your smile. The porcelain material is not as porous as natural tooth enamel. This prevents stains from setting in, giving you a white and easy-to-maintain smile.
Before fitting you for dental veneers, your dentists will need to examine each tooth in your smile. It’s important to determine the overall health of each tooth and depth of the available tooth enamel. If one or two teeth have been compromised, they might recommend restoring it with a porcelain dental crown.
Dr. Babcock and Dr. Bill will then remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth. Then, they will make a detailed impression of each tooth that will be fitted for a veneer. This will be sent to a dental lab to serve as a guide while the technicians work to produce your final veneers.
When your veneers are ready, Dr. Babcock and Dr. Bill will call you back in for a second appointment. Then a powerful dental adhesive will be used to cement the final veneers in place.
