No matter how much you brush and floss, there are certain dental imperfections that won’t go away. Chips, cracks, gaps, discoloration, and misalignment are “flaws” that require dental treatment to address. Fortunately, Dr. Yarnell offers a one-stop-shop solution for a beautiful smile – veneers! These thin shells of dental-grade porcelain can completely transform your grin into one of your dreams.

Veneers are thin sheaths of dental-grade material (like ceramic or porcelain) designed to fit over the front-facing portion of teeth, hiding any imperfection from view. They’re effective at masking a gapped, misaligned, damaged, or discolored smile. Once in place, they’ll blend seamlessly with your smile and will look virtually indistinguishable from your other teeth! Since each veneer is made separately, this treatment is highly customizable, allowing you to easily restore the appearance of your grin.
Transforming your smile with veneers is a process that can take place over the course of two to three appointments. First, you’ll have a consultation with Dr. Yarnell to discuss your smile goals and receive an oral examination. We’ll make sure you don’t have any lingering oral health problems that need to be addressed before moving forward with your treatment.
Once you’re ready, we’ll begin the process by removing a small amount of enamel from your teeth. This will ensure your veneers are accommodated appropriately and sit flush against your smile. Then, we’ll capture a digital impression and send it off to a dental laboratory for the creation of your veneers. In the meantime, we’ll attach temporary veneers to protect your prepared teeth.
As soon as we receive your permanent veneers from the lab, we’ll call you in to remove your temporaries and replace them. Before permanently cementing them onto the teeth, Dr. Yarnell will closely examine them to ensure they meet our high-quality standards.
