A white and winning smile is an important part of making a great first impression. If you’ve been struggling with chronic staining issues, it can leave you feeling self-conscious in social settings. One long-term solution is to have your dentist, Dr. Jade Cherrington, fit you for porcelain dental veneers.

Dental veneers in Redmond, Oregon, can be used to remedy teeth with chips and deep stains. These porcelain shells are custom crafted in a dental lab out of a porcelain material that will fit over the faces of the teeth in your smile. Once they are installed, they will look exactly like natural tooth enamel.

At the same time, the porcelain material is not as receptive to stains as natural tooth enamel. This will have the net effect of giving you a white smile that is easy to maintain in the long term.

At the first appointment, Dr. Jade Cherrington will examine the teeth in your smile and take a few X-rays to assess the health of each tooth. It’s important to make sure that there is sufficient strong enamel to securely mount a veneer. If a tooth lacks sufficient enamel, he might recommend having it restored by a dental crown.

Dr. Jade Cherrington will then use a drill to remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth. Next, he will take a detailed impression of all the teeth in your smile. This will be sent to a dental lab to be used as a guide for crafting your custom porcelain dental veneers.

You will need to come in for a second appointment when your veneers are ready. Dr. Jade Cherrington will then cement your new dental veneers in place.
