Discover the different ways dental veneers can revive your damaged smile.

If you are looking to give your smile a makeover without invasive cosmetic treatments then it’s time to consider talking to your VeneersLouisville, KY dentist about how dental veneers could give you the results you are looking for.

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are tooth-colored porcelain shells that are bonded to the front of teeth to cover certain dental problems. Unlike crowns, which go over the entire tooth, veneers only cover the front of the tooth.

What can dental veneers fix?

Dental veneers are a great option for someone who is looking to hide unsightly stains, cracks and chips in teeth. For those who are dealing with minor gaps between teeth, crowding and crookedness, dental veneers can also hide these problems.

How do I get dental veneers in Louisville, KY?

Before putting on your veneers we will remove some enamel from your teeth to make room for the veneers. This tooth preparation is minimal, however, and won’t require anesthesia.

Once we have removed enough enamel—usually less than a millimeter—we will take impressions of your teeth and send them to a lab, which will create your unique set of veneers. In the meantime we will fit you with temporary veneers. Once your porcelain veneers are complete, we will apply a special resin between your tooth and the veneers and use a laser to activate and harden the resin.
