Treatment with Porcelain Veneers
Dr. Goldberg will review your oral health and assess your teeth and gums before treatment. This evaluation is done to make sure that this cosmetic treatment aligns with your specific needs. To prepare your teeth for the veneers, a small layer of tooth enamel will be removed to create room for the veneers and provide a better bonding surface. Dental impressions will then be taken of teeth to help fabricate porcelain veneers. After these digital impressions are sent to a lab and completed, they will be bonded to teeth.
Porcelain veneers can last for years with proper dental care, although you can still get cavities under your veneers, so it is important to keep on brushing and flossing twice a day. Avoid chewing on hard objects or nail-biting as the veneers may chip or break. If you notice that your bite doesn’t feel right or you feel any discomfort, call our office and we will fix it as soon as possible. Your comfort is our priority.

Snap-On-Smile is a comfortable and quick economical alternative to more complex dental procedures.
