If you would like to learn more about dental veneers in Salt Lake City, Utah, call 801-679-2583. Over the phone, our dental team can arrange a restoration consultation with our dentist, Dr. Christopher Giauque.
Veneers are thin shells placed on the outside surface of the tooth to restore color or fix problems with the tooth’s shape. Dental veneers are often advertised as being only for cosmetic purposes, but our team uses veneers mainly for restorative treatments! With them, we can:
- Close small gaps
- Fix chips or small cracks
- Even out tooth surfaces
- Support worn-down teeth.
When we have determined a veneer is the right treatment for you, our dentist will first prepare the tooth surface by trimming off an amount of enamel equal to the thickness of the veneer, so its placement will not affect the feel of your smile. We will then take a mold of the tooth to create the veneer and permanently bond it to your tooth at a later appointment. Between these appointments, we will provide a temporary veneer to protect your tooth.
If you have any other questions or concerns about dental veneers, please call us today! A member of our team will be happy to help you!
