If you struggle with keeping your teeth white, or if you have teeth with chips and other visible imperfections, this can be especially troublesome for your everyday life. Fortunately, your dentist, Dr. Andrew Atwood, is highly trained and experienced in a wide range of cosmetic smile enhancement treatments.

One of the more popular options for restoring your smile is to have your teeth fitted for custom-made porcelain dental veneers. It often requires two separate appointments for your dentist to fit your smile with porcelain dental veneers.

Dental veneers in Orem, Utah, are basically thin, porcelain shells that are custom made in a dental lab to fit over the faces of the teeth in your smile. The porcelain material is shaded to look just like natural teeth.

Your dentist will conduct a thorough examination of the teeth in your smile to make sure each one has sufficient enamel to securely mount a veneer. Should one or two of your teeth lack sufficient enamel to mount a veneer, he might recommend having it restored by a porcelain dental crown.

Your dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth to prepare the surface. Your dentist will then cast a detailed impression of each tooth in your smile. This will be sent to our state-of-the-art dental lab where your porcelain veneers will be made.

We will call you back in for a second appointment once the lab technician has completed the veneers. To install the veneers, your dentist will carefully cement them into place with a strong dental adhesive.
