Veneer Today, Smile Tomorrow

Porcelain veneers for your smile - Omaha DentistsIf you’re finding that you aren’t the one showing off your pearly whites in every family picture, it might be because you’re embarrassed of what your teeth look like. A porcelain veneer can be used to correct your smile so you can be the one showing off your smile again.

Porcelain veneers can be used to correct several cosmetic dentistry issues including the following:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Teeth that are too small
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Stained teeth
  • Dark teeth

How Do Porcelain Veneers Work?

In order to restore your smile using a porcelain veneer, our Omaha cosmetic dentists will require two appointments. During the first appointment, we will prepare the tooth via shaping and roughing techniques. After this, we will take a model of your teeth and use the model to create your porcelain veneers.

During the second appointment, our Nebraska dentists will clean and prepare your existing teeth. After this, we will use an adhesive to apply the porcelain veneers to your existing teeth and use a high-intensity light to make the adhesive hard-enough to stay.

Finally, you will be left with a gorgeous cover for your tooth in order to remedy gaps, discoloration, and misshapen teeth.
