A lot of people feel that a white and winning smile is a key element in making a great first impression. Chronic dental staining issues and minor physical imperfections can leave you feeling uncomfortable about your appearance and sap your self-confidence.

One way to address a problem like this is to have Dr. Greg Ortman enhance your smile by installing dental veneers at his Lafayette, Indiana dental office.

These thin porcelain shells are made from a special dental-grade porcelain. This material is known to be far less receptive to staining than natural tooth enamel. This will give you a white smile that will be easy to maintain for many years ahead.

The process of installing the veneers starts by Dr. Greg Ortman examining each tooth in your smile. If one or two teeth have compromised tooth enamel, he might recommend restoring them with a porcelain crown. This is even more likely to be the case if a new cavity has formed or there is a pre-existing filling. A detailed impression will then be made and sent to a dental lab where the dental veneers will be painstakingly-crafted.

A member of Dr. Greg Ortman’s staff will call you back in when your veneers are ready. Dr. Greg Ortman will then use a drill to remove a minuscule amount of enamel from the face of each tooth. The veneers will be painstakingly cemented in place with a strong dental adhesive.

If you live in the Lafayette, Indiana area and you are interested in improving your smile with dental veneers, please call 765-447-0322 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Greg Ortman. We look forward to helping you renew your smile with the help of dental veneers!
