A winning smile is the key to making a good first impression. Even if your teeth are even in alignment, your smile can still suffer from other imperfections, like chips, stains and mismatched fillings. Fortunately, your dentist, Dr. Stan Scalf, is trained and experienced in a wide range of cosmetic dental treatments that can give you the white and winning smile you desire.

One of the more popular options for restoring your smile is to have your teeth fitted for custom-made porcelain dental veneers. This treatment often requires two separate appointments.

To put it simply, dental veneers in Georgetown, Kentucky, are basically thin porcelain shells that are custom made in a dental lab to fit over the faces of the teeth in your smile. The porcelain material is shaded to look just like natural teeth.

Your dentist will conduct a thorough examination of the teeth in your smile to make sure each one has sufficient enamel to securely mount a veneer. Should one or two of your teeth lack sufficient enamel to mount a veneer, he might recommend having it restored with a porcelain dental crown.

Your dentist will then cast a detailed impression of each tooth in your smile. This will be sent to our state-of-the-art dental lab where your porcelain veneers will be custom crafted.

We will call you back in for a second appointment once the lab technician has completed the veneers. To install the veneers, your dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth to prepare the surface. Then, each veneer will be carefully cemented into place.

If your smile is suffering from multiple cosmetic imperfections, you should call 502-863-9340 to schedule an appointment at our office.
