Many people feel that an appealing smile serves them well in social settings. As a result, they often seek out their dentist, Dr. Rita Frazier, and explore their cosmetic dental options that will improve their smile.
If the teeth in your smile have imperfections, like visible fillings, chips or significant staining issues, you can address all of these problems with dental veneers.
Dental veneers in Norfolk, Virginia, are custom-made, thin, porcelain shells that our highly trained staff can secure onto the face of each tooth in your smile. The porcelain material can be shaded to look just like bright, white tooth enamel.
At your first appointment, your dentist will examine your smile and will take a few X-rays. It’s important to make sure that each tooth has sufficient enamel to anchor a dental veneer. If one or more teeth have insufficient enamel, tooth decay or an old, large filling, the dentist might recommend having those teeth fitted for a porcelain dental crown.
After all of your imperfect teeth have been examined, your dentist will make a detailed impression of your smile. This impression will be sent to our professional dental lab where your porcelain dental veneers will be crafted.
We will call you into Rita Frazier DDS Cosmetic & General Dentistry for a second appointment when your dental veneers come back from the lab. During this appointment, your dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth. Then, each dental veneer will be cemented into place.
If you are interested in improving your smile with dental veneers in Norfolk, Virginia, you should call Rita Frazier DDS Cosmetic & General Dentistry at 757-587-6399 to schedule an appointment.
