Cosmetic smile flaws are a valid reason for cause for concern because, even if you do not have a dental issue such as tooth decay, a flawed smile can create embarrassment and even shame. Our skilled dentist and team want to help you fall in love with your smile again, and dental veneers may be just the way to do it.

Shaped to look like thin shells of porcelain, dental veneers are bonded to the the faces of aesthetically compromised teeth to provide a more ideal shape, size, and color. Dr. Joshua Scott Murdock prefers porcelain because it is resistant to staining and he can shade it to the color of your teeth.

Please keep in mind that, prior to taking any steps to create your veneers, we will need to gauge the level of healthy tooth enamel on the teeth that will be receiving veneers. If the enamel is weak or the tooth has been compromised by previous dental work, the tooth cannot support a dental veneer and may benefit from an alternative cosmetic treatment such as a porcelain dental crown.

If Dr. Joshua Scott Murdock has determined your teeth are healthy enough for dental veneers, he will create a detailed impression of the teeth that the dental lab will use as a model for your dental veneers. Each veneer will be custom created to match specific teeth.

Once we have received the finished veneers, it’s time for your next appointment with Dr. Joshua Scott Murdock. We will need to make space the the veneers on your teeth by removing an inconsequential amount of tooth enamel from each tooth. This ensures your dental veneers will fit well and feel natural. After the veneers have been cemented to the corresponding teeth, you are free to flash your new smile at the world.
