Our dentist, Dr. Ferrell can improve an unattractive smile with dental veneers. The special dental porcelain or composite resin used for the dental veneers can be shaded to resemble your natural tooth enamel.

It’s important to keep in mind that the biting edge of a dental veneer might not be as hard as your enamel. One way you can avoid this problem is cut hard or tough food into smaller pieces to avoid biting down on it and damaging your veneer. Even if you don’t feel any immediate pain or sensitivity, it’s best to have the tooth examined as soon as possible a dentist. After assessing the damage to the veneer and the health of the tooth the dentist will present you with potential treatment options. These options could include replacing the dental veneer with a new one or replacing the entire layer of tooth enamel with a porcelain dental crown. If the core structures of the tooth were damaged, the dentist might need to perform a root canal.

If you live in the Lehi, Utah, area and you have recently chipped or fractured a dental veneer, you should call 801-766-3700 to have it examined and treated at the dental offices of Center Creek Dental.
