Chips, staining, and slightly crooked teeth can really put a damper on your smile, but dental veneers can turn that frown upside down! At Enamel Dentistry South Lamar, we know how even minor imperfections can affect your confidence. That’s why we offer a variety of cosmetic procedures to help our Barton Hills patients look and feel their best – served with a side of fun! From veneers to complete cosmetic makeovers, we’ll have you confidently grinning from ear-to-ear in no time!
Dental veneers are a quick, non-invasive way to quickly revamp the appearance of your smile. The veneers themselves are thin, tooth-shaped (and colored) prosthetics made out of ceramic porcelain that go over the front side of your teeth to enhance the appearance and shape. They’re a great option for many types of cosmetic concerns, including worn teeth, covering large fillings, and closing gaps between teeth. Even better, they’re stain-resistant, so you won’t have to worry about yellowing or discoloration. And once they’re placed on your teeth, they can last up to 10 years or more with proper care.
The procedure for dental veneers is done over two office visits. At the first visit, we’ll have you come in for a nice, thorough cleaning and to remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth so the veneers will look natural. We’ll also take digital dental impressions (that’s right – no more goop in your mouth!) which will be used to create your veneers. Before you leave, we’ll also give you a temporary set to wear.
Once your permanent set is ready to go, we’ll have you come back to the office – now the real transformation begins! We’ll check to make sure you’re happy with the appearance and fit, and then if it’s all good, we’ll use a special dental cement to make your veneers official. A brand new smile in two office visits? It doesn’t get much better than that.
Although most of our Barton Hills patients are likely good candidates for veneers, it’s important to understand that this procedure is cosmetic only – so it can’t be used on badly-damaged teeth. However, if you’re not a good candidate for veneers, we also offer fillings, crowns, teeth whitening, Invisalign, and many more procedures to help you have a healthy, happy smile! Not to mention, we make every visit fun, with awesome amenities like beer, wine, Netflix, and more! Plus, our friendly team and inclusive vibe will leave you smiling long after your appointment is over. Schedule your appointment today to get started on the path to a more beautiful smile!
