At Lexington Heights Dental, we pair dentistry with artistry and provide individuals with the highest level of care — both dental care and patient care. Healthy teeth are within reach of most people, but an irresistible smile can only be achieved with the expertise of a renowned cosmetic dentist who values facial aesthetics, places emphasis on precision and truly cares about the best interest of patients. For years, Dr. Lohner and Dr. Jimmer have been transforming patients’ lives by enhancing the beauty of their smiles. At our dental office, we offer porcelain dental veneers in Cedar Hills, Utah, that can be adapted to your smile, address your distinguished needs and dramatically alter several details of your smile.
An In-Depth Look at the Procedure
Porcelain veneers offer a nearly immediate solution for patients who have a cosmetically flawed tooth or structurally flawed smile. By installing the wafer-thin shell of porcelain over your tooth, the veneer can dramatically alter the size, shape, color and even texture of the existing structure. The custom-made, tooth-colored material is bonded to the front of the tooth following enamel preparation to mask any cosmetic imperfection.
Placing porcelain veneers typically requires two visits to our cosmetic dentistry office. During your first visit, a treatment plan will be devised to help satisfy your goals. Lexington Heights Dental stays on the cusp of cutting-edge technology, and we are proud to utilize digital imaging so patients can see a more realistic view of what their smile will look like once designed and placed. Our team spends ample time reviewing pictures with you, creating your cosmetic enhancement, and surveying your facial features, so not only can your result be more satisfying, it can aesthetically highlight the beauty of your face.
Prior to installing the porcelain covering, your tooth must be reshaped, and in some cases, your gums may need to be redesigned. Once your tooth has been reshaped, an impression of your smile will be taken from which your veneer will be crafted. While you wait for your veneer to be completed, Dr. Lohner will install a temporary veneer within your smile to preserve the refined structure. Once your porcelain veneer has been completed, you will return for a second appointment, at which time our team will secure it to your existing tooth and inspect your surrounding teeth to ensure its proper fit.
Similar to veneers, Lumineers are a safe and effective way to alter the contour, color, length and condition of your teeth. If your smile is relatively healthy but suffers from minor cosmetic flaws, Lumineers can transform the appearance of your smile in a short period of time. Lumineers do not require recovery time, are hand crafted, require no tooth reduction and do not necessitate injections during their installation. Working with several highly credible labs throughout the area, we can help ensure that your cosmetic enhancement not only meets the highest standards for quality and aesthetics but perhaps more importantly provides lasting, positive results in your life.
