Dental Veneers are a quick, permanent way to replace broken, chipped, stained or crooked teeth. Beautifully shaped porcelain sheaths, veneers allow a smile of ideal proportion and color.
The process is relatively expeditious, a brief two weeks. After a thorough evaluation including dental impressions (a mold of your teeth is made by gently biting into a soft plastic material as it slowly hardens) a dental arts lab designs a wax mock-up of your teeth.
The teeth are prepared and the gum line (if needed) recontoured. Often water laser is used to reshape the gum line (lengthening the teeth and evening any irregularities). Dr. Frankel uses Biolase to reduce a gummy smile or keep the gum line consistent with the smile line. Temporary or provisional veneers are placed. Two weeks later, the porcelain veneers are permanently bonded in place.
Dr. Frankel has created hundreds of beautiful smiles. To a person, each patient has commented, “I wish I would have done this sooner.” A Gallery of before and after smiles line the Talmadge Office of Jon Frankel Dentistry and complimentary consultations are available at your convenience.
