The tooth enamel layer on each of your teeth is microscopically porous. When you consume certain foods, dark beverages, or use tobacco, tiny dark particles can adhere to the faces of your teeth. If these minor surface stains aren’t removed in a timely manner they can saturate your teeth and leave you with a stained smile.
A dental bleaching treatment can remove these deeply set in dental stains. However, if your smile also suffers from other minor physical imperfections, Drs. Nolte, King, Murphy, and Augustine might recommend another cosmetic dentistry option.
One of the more effective options to achieve a white smile that’s also easy to maintain is to have our dentists fit you for dental veneers in Lincoln, Nebraska. They are thin porcelain shells that mimic the natural shape of each tooth. They are shaded to look like gleaming, white tooth enamel.
The cosmetic restoration process begins with our dentists examining your teeth. It’s important to determine the overall health of each tooth and the depth of the available tooth enamel. If one of your teeth has a significant dental fracture, old dental filling, or newly formed cavity, our dentists might recommend a porcelain dental crown.
Once the assessment is complete, our dentists will form an impression of each tooth intended for a dental veneer. This will be sent to the dental lab to guide the technicians while they create your dental veneers.
When they’re ready a member of our team will call you back in for a second appointment. Our dentists will remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth in your smile. A strong dental adhesive will then be used to cement each dental veneer onto the corresponding tooth.
If you are interested in restoring your smile with dental veneers, you should call 402-423-1100 to set up a consultation at Pine Ridge Dental.
