A winning smile is an important part of making a great first impression. If the teeth in your smile suffer from cosmetic imperfections, it can severely hamper your personal interactions.

If you have teeth suffering from discolored fillings, old dental work, cavities, or noticeable chips, your dentist, Dr. Joseph Tagliarini, might recommend dental veneers. This can also be an effective measure for addressing chronic staining problems as the porcelain veneers are not as receptive to stains as natural tooth enamel.

Dr. Joseph Tagliarini will start by inspecting each tooth in your smile. This will also include taking some X-rays. This will help him assess the health and integrity of each tooth and make sure there is enough enamel to anchor a veneer. If one or two teeth lack the sufficient enamel to secure a dental veneer, he might recommend fitting that tooth for a porcelain dental crown.

At the end of the appointment, he will remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth. Your dentist will then cast a detailed impression of each tooth in your smile. This will be sent to a state-of-the-art dental lab where your veneers will be prepared.

A member of our Comprehensive Dental Health, LLC staff will call you to schedule your second appointment when the veneers are ready. During this appointment, your dentist will cement the corresponding dental veneer into place.
