Old fillings can gradually start to mismatch the appearance of the surrounding tooth enamel. Chips can form on a tooth from minor dental trauma, and discoloration from dental stains can turn your tooth enamel an unsightly shade of yellow. Any one or all of these things can leave you looking for a cosmetic dental solution to your unappealing smile problem.
One of the most effective options Dr. Taylor Goggins might recommend is to have dental veneers installed at his Broomfield, Colorado dental clinic.
On a basic level, these are custom-shaped shells cast from a special dental-grade porcelain material. They will be created at a professional dental lab to match the natural shape of each tooth in your smile.
The porcelain material can be shaded to look just like white, natural tooth enamel. At the same time, it won’t be as porous as natural tooth enamel, so the veneer-enhanced teeth will resist future dental staining issues.
Dr. Taylor Goggins will start the process of fitting you for veneers by examining each tooth in your smile. This ensures that there is sufficient strong enamel to later mount the veneers and address any old fillings or areas of tooth decay.
If you have one or two teeth that have been compromised by a large chip, tooth decay or an old filling, Dr. Taylor Goggins might recommend a porcelain crown restoration.
After the initial examination, Dr. Taylor Goggins will create an impression of each tooth in your smile. This is sent to a dental lab where your custom dental veneers are produced.
A staff member of Dr. Taylor Goggins’s staff will call you to schedule a second appointment, when your veneers are ready. Dr. Taylor Goggins will then use a drill to remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth. This prepares the surface of the tooth to secure the veneer with dental-grade adhesive.
