Do you have one or more teeth in your smile that manage to stand out, and not for the right reasons? If so, call Jeppson Dental at 801-356-7701. Our dentist, Dr. Joe Jeppson, and our team will be happy to see you for an appointment for a porcelain dental veneer in Provo, Utah.
A dental veneer can be a very effective way to enhance your smile. Veneers are porcelain shells that are placed directly on the surface of your tooth. They look very natural and can be used to correct problems such as teeth that are improperly shaped or spaced, or that have been discolored. A veneer can also be used to conceal and restore teeth with minor tooth damage.
The process is a simple one and can be completed in two visits to our office. First, Dr. Jeppson will gently abrade the enamel on the front of your tooth and take an impression of it. Then your new veneer will be created in a dental lab. Dr. Jeppson will fix the veneer in place with composite resin before trimming and polishing it to match your smile.
A dental veneer can last up to ten years with the right care. Although the veneer protects the front of your tooth, the back and sides of your tooth are still vulnerable to decay so you will need to brush and floss your teeth normally. You should also be aware that your veneer can become discolored by tobacco use and dark-colored foods and drinks. We look forward to meeting you and helping you decide if A porcelain dental veneer is a good fit for your smile.
