You want a smile movie stars possess. You want your teeth to never yellow. You want your teeth spacing to be perfect. Story City Dental can make your wants a reality — with Veneers. Veneers are thin, lab-created porcelain pieces that we bond over an existing tooth structure. Veneers commonly fix minor cosmetic dental issues like spaces between teeth, heavy stains or other imperfections.
Veneers are effective but they are also permanent — the Story City Dental team takes the utmost care in discussing treatment goals and further options with all patients. We work with you to determine if major veneer work is needed, a combination of full crowns and veneers would work better, or if the gums around the teeth should be altered to provide the perfect solution that will last. Some patients who have short teeth, gummy smiles, over-crowding or a non-ideal bite may not find the results they’re after with Veneers, but our dentist can help determine other approaches to reach your goals.
In the first consultation, our dentist performs a comprehensive exam with a full set of X-rays to determine there or no restorative needs or periodontal issues. We take a high-definition image of you and your current smile and your teeth in dentition. We scan your mouth using our intra-oral scanner. In the 30 to 60 minute follow-up consultation, the dentist and lab technician show you your proposed new smile and step-by-step treatment plan to make it a reality; you’re able to make real-time alterations and have final approval. In a prep appointment, our dentist prepares your teeth for veneers and scans the teeth to send a digital impression to the lab. He then will create temporary veneers that are shaped identically to the 3D planned veneers from the second consultation (we will use a 3D printed model). 10-14 days later you will return to have the permanent veneers cemented in place. At this appointment we will try in all the veneers to make sure you are happy with how they look prior to cementing them. Our staff will follow up with you after seven days after cementing the final restorations to make sure your bite is right and you’re loving your smile.
We are the only office in the area that is able to address the restorative, orthodontic, and surgical aspects of cosmetic dentistry in office.
We are the only office in the area that offers and provides the full spectrum of care needed to address not just the teeth, but how the teeth look in the tissue; which in many cases requires alteration of soft tissue profile (surgery) or orthodontic movement of the teeth. Specifically the surgical aspect, the orthodontic aspect and restorative aspect and in some cases the implant aspect (both placement and restoration).
