Are you looking to improve your smile, but you have been told that your teeth are too stained to be cleaned? Or, maybe you have a few cracked teeth. It is sometimes easier to get Veneers which will look just like your real teeth. You will gain your confidence back and will be proud to smile once again.
Dental veneers are thin sheaths or shells that fit over the front of the teeth, providing you with a new, enhanced smile. Veneers look just like the real thing.

Dr. Damore will guide you in selecting the perfect options to fit your needs. Veneers are a great option to start the improvement and confidence of you in your smile. Veneers do take some time and cannot be done in a day. There are certain steps and procedures that need to be done before your veneers can be applied and bonded.
The dental veneer procedure may require three visits to cover the entire process. Your teeth need to be prepped and a mold needs to be taken of your teeth so that the veneers can be made. All of this takes a few weeks from first appointment to application. The appointments include your initial treatment plan, the preparation, and the bonding of the veneers. We will give you a brief description of each.
If you’ve chosen to receive porcelain veneers, a mold will be taken of your teeth once they’re filed down. This mold is then sent to a laboratory, which will create your perfect veneers. Because this process can take several days, you may receive temporary veneers in the meantime.
Once your porcelain veneers have been prepared, Dr. Damore will place them on the teeth to make sure they fit perfectly. When it’s time to apply the veneer, the teeth will be cleaned and special chemicals will be applied to help the veneers bond to the teeth.
There will be an adjustment period before you feel completely comfortable with your new smile. However, you should continue with your oral hygiene routine, which should include brushing and flossing your teeth every day.
