Fix Minor Cosmetic Issues
For Movie Star-Worthy Smiles
You want your teeth to never yellow. You want your teeth spacing to be perfect. And you want a permanently esthetic, beautiful smile. Story City Dental can make your wants a reality with veneers.
Veneers are thin, high strength porcelain pieces that bond over your existing tooth structure. They essentially reshape your teeth and change their color within the area of your mouth that you see when you smile. Veneers commonly fix minor cosmetic dental issues like spaces between teeth, heavy stains or other imperfections that minimal work may have not been able to achieve.
Who can get veneers?
Veneers are an effective and permanent solution to whiten and prosthetically straighten the appearance of your smile. The Story City Dental team takes the utmost care in discussing treatment goals and further options with all our patients. We’ll work with you to determine if major veneer work is needed, if 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 some cases, clear aligner therapy is a better option.
What’s the procedure?
In the first consultation, our dentist performs a comprehensive exam with a full set of X-rays to determine if there are any restorative needs or periodontal issues on the teeth that you would like veneers placed on. We’ll take a high-definition image of your current smile that shows how your teeth fit together. Using our CEREC PRIME system, we scan your mouth and work with a local lab to create a digital design. We print this out, and let you “try it on”.
If you decide to proceed with planned treatment, a prep appointment is then scheduled. At this appointment, your teeth receiving veneer treatment are minimally reduced to create space and bonding surface for the veneers. Once all teeth are prepped, they are scanned with our CEREC PRIMESCAN, and all veneers are milled chairside, glaze-fired, and bonded in the same appointment. There is no need for temporaries; you will leave with your final restorations that day, in just one appointment!
Why choose Story City Dental for veneers?
We address the restorative, orthodontic and surgical aspects of cosmetic dentistry in-office. We provide the full spectrum of care needed to address not just the teeth, but how the teeth look in the tissue. We are a completely digital office, with CEREC PrimeScan and in-office restoration fabrication so that there is no need for a second appointment.
