Dental veneers are thin, wafer-like shells that Dr. Davis fits over your existing teeth. At Perfect Smile Tulsa, the dentists use standard veneers or Lumineers® to transform your smile, allowing you to greet the world with renewed confidence.
Veneers correct a host of dental issues.
Whether your teeth are yellowing from age or have been subjected to prolonged staining, veneers provide natural-looking fronts that function just like your normal teeth. Veneers protect the natural integrity of your underlying tooth structure while providing a facade that resists staining.
If your teeth are uneven thanks to chipping and general wear and tear, veneers can improve their outward appearance by hiding these defects. Veneers can even “lengthen” your teeth.
If the gaps in your teeth are interrupting an otherwise great smile, veneers bridge these gaps from the front, leaving you with teeth that form a tight line straight across your mouth.
If wear and tear or Mother Nature have left you with oddly-shaped teeth, veneers correct this problem by hiding the imperfections.
Once you’ve decided that veneers are your best option, Dr. Davis and his staff begin by preparing your teeth. To do this, Dr. Davis removes a small amount of enamel from the front of your teeth to make room for the veneers (it’s important to note that this process is irreversible and your enamel doesn’t grow back).
Using advanced scanning and imaging, the dentists precisely map your teeth to ensure your veneers look as natural as possible. By referring to these images, and your desired coloring goals, a lab manufactures your custom veneers.
When your veneers are ready, you return to Perfect Smile Tulsa and the dentist bonds the veneers into place.
