If you have smile imperfections, you must feel self-conscious when laughing, smiling or taking a picture. If this is the case, our James T. Voorhees, DDS dental team encourages you to consider improving the appearance of your smile with dental veneers. Fortunately, there are many cosmetic imperfections dental veneers can fix, like:

  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Worn-down teeth
  • Irregularly shaped teeth
  • Teeth with gaps between them

The treatment involved in placing a dental veneer is simple, painless, and easy. However, please keep in mind that it will most likely require more than one appointment. To begin, Dr. James Voorhees will numb your tooth and the surrounding area with a local anesthetic. Then, he will shave the top layer of your tooth, which is called your tooth enamel, to make room for the veneer. Next, he will make impressions of your teeth and smile and will send those impressions to a professional dental lab. When the veneer is ready, you will come back into our office and your dentist will check the veneer to make sure it fits perfectly in your smile. If it’s exactly what you’re looking for, he will cement it into place.
