"I am very happy that I found Advanced Dentistry! The office staff were very kind and the hygienist who cleaned my teeth took the time to answer my questions and immediately made me feel at ease. I feel that I am in great hands at Advanced Dentistry!"- B.K. / Google / Feb 06, 2021
"I want to start by saying that I am getting to know the new staff and dentists and so far the experience has been very positive. I also want to add that Dr. Kwon helped me with a very difficult implant that had been started by another dentist. Thank you!"- D.C. / Google / Jan 05, 2021
"I had trepidation about my appointment, because there had been a long lapse in my dental care, and I had previous negative dental experiences elsewhere. I was blown away by the pleasant, efficient, and COVID-conscious care I received. The receptionists were attentive and friendly, and my hygienist was a gem--she was not only personable, but very skilled and knowledgeable. She is definitely an asset to this practice with a bright future. I only saw the dentist briefly, since this was a routine new patient appointment/cleaning, but he had a good bedside manner, and I feel confident that my dental health is in good hands."- P.V. / Google / Jan 02, 2021
"Great cleaning! Katya did a wonderful job."- L.W. / Google / Jan 02, 2021
"I am highly impressed and I wish I could leave more than 5 stars. I have been here a number of times now and each time it is, hands-down, the best dental care experience I have had in years. The staff are polite, friendly, and highly skilled - plus they are keen on taking appropriate COVID-19 precautions to always keep them and their patients safe. They are prompt and effective, but won't make you feel like some passenger on a conveyor belt, either. If you're curious, they will also explain every step of their process. (Useful tip: when you book an appointment, ask to be placed on Kristen's schedule. Thank me later)"- O.O. / Google / Oct 30, 2020
Are You a Good Candidate for Veneers?
Porcelain veneers may be used to instantly hide chips and stains on your enamel, improve worn down or misaligned teeth, and transform teeth that are unevenly shaped or spaced. These restorations are generally placed in pairs to ensure a balanced appeal or reaching from one side of your smile to the other. At Advanced Dentistry, we custom-create cosmetic veneers to fit seamlessly within your smile for a dazzling appeal and naturally balanced look. During your consultation, our dentists will listen to your goals and concerns and personalize your cosmetic dentistry treatment plan. Ideal candidates for treatment with veneers are free from gum problems and do not routinely clench the jaw and grind the teeth. Patients with significant tooth misalignment may also be better treated with orthodontic solutions.
What Is the Treatment Process?
In most cases, porcelain veneers take two office visits to complete. During your first appointment, our dentists will prepare your teeth by removing a thin layer of enamel from each tooth. This helps your veneers to sit flush within your smile line and allows for a natural feel and appearance. Once each tooth has been prepared, our team will take a digital impression of the area, which our partner dental lab will use to custom-create your veneers of the highest quality porcelain material. Our dentists will design your cosmetic restorations to the ideal size, shape, length, width, and color for the best possible results. A set of temporaries will be placed and worn over the 1 – 2 weeks it takes for the lab to create your permanent veneers. As soon as your custom veneers arrive at our office, we will have you return and bond them into place. Your veneers will then be adjusted as needed for comfort and polished for a brilliant finish.
How to Maintain Your Veneers
Since receiving dental veneers does not typically require anesthesia, you may be able to resume your daily activities right after your appointment. You might experience some sensitivity to hot and cold meals for a few days, but that should subside naturally. Your new veneers should be cleaned just like your own natural teeth with regular flossing and brushing. While cosmetic veneers are more stain-resistant compared to your natural enamel, you may still wish to minimize the consumption of foods or drinks that stain to keep your veneers bright. To prevent damaging your veneers, it is best to avoid biting into hard objects, such as ice or your fingernails. Attending routine dental cleanings and exams at Advanced Dentistry can help keep your veneers in the best possible shape so they may offer a long-lasting solution for your smile.
Does Insurance Cover Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dentistry procedure and typically not a covered benefit under dental insurance. Advanced Dentistry proudly offers an array of affordable payment methods, such as medical financing, to make getting your dream smile within easy reach. Our knowledgeable financial coordinator is glad to work with you and help you explore your payment options for porcelain veneers.
